I'm sure this is somehow sexist - but in a casually dressed sort of way


Some guys like girls in mini skirts or skin tight black pants, but tonight I realized – I'm really a simple blue jeans type of guy.

Don't get me wrong, I certainly like when women wear sexy dresses and show some leg, or perhaps some slinky and expensive designer clothes...but, there's just something about a female in an old pair of blue jeans that catches my eye.

I was at 515 in Murray Hill tonight for a while – by the way, how much fun is a Sunday evening out when Monday is a day off and you know you can sleep late? I don't know why, it just seems different than a regular night out.

Anyway, there was a girl there in a pair of jeans, (I believe they were Levi's, but not sure) who looked absolutely stunning in them. She could have been in a Levi's 505 ad - 505 in 515? Hey, work on that, Madison Ave.

Every time she went to go to the bathroom, and she must have went four times (bless her tiny little bladder), I think every male in the room caught their breath as she passed. And you could tell this girl knew the effect she had, and worked it for everything – the little floozy.

But I really do love that casually sexy look that some girls just carry off effortlessly; a pair of jeans, with maybe a white t-shirt and a blazer. Nice.

And, of course, jeans are the most egalitarian of clothes. Assuming you don't go nuts and buy the silly $300 designer label types, a pair of Levi's for 40 bucks work just fine. (Read the history of them sometime, by the way, it's quite interesting).

So, mazel tov on your enduring invention Levi Strauss. And also to that girl in 515 tonight for wearing them so damn well. You would have made Mr. Strauss proud.

Although if he could somehow come back to life and see how his practical bit of apparel have became such an integral part of our lives, even 150 years later in a noisy 3rd Avenue bar 3,000 miles away from the mines they were designed for, he would probably die all over again from the shock.

Or if he had the Angus burger at 515, that would do it too.

Well let me give you the women's perspective. I agree that jeans can look great, especially if you have the butt for them! :) And I have Levis but I have some designer too (Seven and True Religion). I wouldn't feel comfortable in wearing Levis to work, so that's when I will wear the designers. See.

And smurfette some clubs don't allow you in if you're wearing ratty old jeans, but they will if you have on good ones.

Jeans should look good and be comfortable. They are not for everyplace but they can still look good no matter how comfy they are. But spending $300 does seem a bit much I will admit lol.

When I'm not wearing scrubs, I'm always wearing jeans. Nothing too fancy, just the X2's from Express, but they make my tushie look exquisite.

Dr. Pibb, I know my husband is biased, but he says it's a ten. I'm pretty happy when people I don't know ask me where I get my jeans because they think they look great on me. I think I lucked out with Express, because normally I don't wear their jeans. :)
