Denim has been one of the most consistent and enduring things in my life. I was fortunte to have come of age when blue jeans had become the defacto apparel that could be worn just about anywhere – except maybe to church on Sunday mornings.
For the past 50 or so years, I have lived and thrived in denim. From my orginal buttonup Levi 501s (still my favorite) that were bought brand new – dark and stiff – and worn until they were baby blue with holes in the butt and knees. Oh! And the myriad styles of bell bottoms – now called boot cut. When holes would appear in those, we would just patch ’em up with pieces of colorful fabric, and with ready made patches that made some sort of statement about something or another that we thought was cool. Then on to the eighties with the high wasted straight and skinny legged (505s I think they were) that were not very comfortable for me especially when I tucked my shirttail in. What’s really amazing to me is that all of these styles are acceptable nowadays (even the holey jeans sans the patches, however)!
O.K. Who was I foolin’? There are SO MANY things made of denim or made to look like denim, and I love most anything denim. On the previously designed Denim Nature.com site I tried to post such a wide variety of jeans, tops, sizes and other items compatable with or made of denim, it became rather, well, confusing (to me anyway). So now I’ve decided to choose and post only the things that I would personally wear and use. In other words, the products that you will see here and can then go on to buy at Amazon.com if you so choose, are those that reflect my personal disposition and sense of style – simple, practical, durable, functional, casual, comfortable, sensible, and timeless.
So, thank you for visiting and browsing. Hope you can find some things you will like & enjoy!
More than 140 years after inventing the blue jean, one thing is clear: Levi's clothes are loved by the people who wear them – from presidents to movie stars, farmers to fashion icons, entrepreneurs to the everyman. 'Live in Levi's' asserts with confidence and pride that Levi's clothes are indeed for everybody who's not just anybody.
