The jeans issue
Tuesday, April 25, 2006
Fair warning: I may offend some of my female readers (and probably some metrosexual guys). I have to ask, though, what is the deal with embroidered jeans? You know, jeans like this:



Or like this:



And why is it that I only see women over 30 wearing them? My 19-year-old sisters don't wear them, but a 38-year-old single woman will gladly stride through a bar in them. Is it a status statement? Look at me. I'm older, I have more money. I can afford to wear fancy jeans.

Or is it purely a peacocking effort. Oh, I see I just caught the eye of that guy across the room with my faux-diamond embroidered jeans. He's so going home with me tonight.

Seriously, women who own these jeans (and I know who you are), please tell me why you have them and why you wear them.

Poem of the Day for National Poetry Month
"Bricklayer Love"
by Carl Sandburg

I thought of killing myself because I am only a bricklayer
and you a woman who loves the man who runs a drug store.

I don't care like I used to; I lay bricks straighter than I
used to and I sing slower handling the trowel afternoons.

When the sun is in my eyes and the ladders are shaky and the
mortar boards go wrong, I think of you.

    But Ishi, you told me you liked seeing me in women's jeans. Something about them making my ass look good.

    Are they really that bad in comparison to, say, spandex and fanny packs?

    You and your clothing particularitites. Some people like embroidery on their jeans, some people don't.

    Some people like flip flops, others don't.

    Potato, potahto.

    jason, i think you're mistaken. i said there's no room for a boy's package in women's jeans. though it probably does squeeze your butt, too. and who wouldn't like that?
