Posted on 08/10/2008 7:00:44 PM PDT by Diana in Wisconsin
New York, NY (CNS) - Singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow will be releasing her own very "Americana" line of denim jeans and shirts in Dillard's department stores on August 15.
The multi-Grammy Award winning artist's clothing line, Bootheel Trading Company, is inspired by western and vintage style. The jeans are designed to be eco-friendly, using only fair-trade cotton and denim.
Crow has partnered with Western Glove Works for the affordable fashion line. The most expensive jeans is retailed at $69, and the shirts start at $29.
The complete Fall '08 collection will be available nationwide at Dillard's branches and some boutique stores on August 15.
What a raving hypocrite. Doesn't Sheryl know that cotton crops use the most chemicals per square inch during production? And she's worried about toilet paper?
Get on this, Freepers. Discredit this moron.
*Where are these clothes manufactured?
*What does it cost to use "free-trade cotton" and if you can still sell a pair of jeans for $69, just WHO is taking the loss? (Hint: It ain't Sheryl!)
*Why isn't she using American Cotton in these jeans and shirts?
*What is the cost of sending the goods overseas for manufacture, versus having Americans make these clothes here in the USA?
Enquiring minds want to know! ;)
I won’t be wearing her name on my a$$!
Lance dropped her and went back to riding his bike because his bike had fewer miles on it ...
May God forgive our souls for reject true country music for this crap.
For real country, please check out Jamey Johnson.
All of mine say Cowboy cut 31X31 and some guy named Wrangler. Tractor Supply $29.00.
I like Sheryl Crow. She made some great hits in the 90s.
Crow’s nutty but those are cool looking jeans IMO.
How about some truth in advertising?
Yummy, can't wait.........
I can’t seem to keep my socialist, anti-American idiots-who-can-sing straight.
Is she the preachy ditz who wants to wipe our a$$ with a single square of single-ply toilet paper?
I do almost everything in jeans, except sleep"
I really don’t like the low rise/waist jeans...at all. Very, very few women look ‘right’ in them. You get that ‘muffin’ top happening...it just is not flattering. I’ll be glad when they go the way of shoulder pads and ponchos...

What’s that upside down triangle in the crotch? Subliminal?
She looked like a heroin junkie on her first albums. Long hair, skinny, gaunt, icky.
Maybe the ditzi chicks will buy some. Not my women.
Sheryl Crow has apparently decided to jump on the bandwagon of rock stars pretending to be fashion designers, teaming up with Western Glove Works (the same guys who manufacture Posh’s dVb jeans).
Her line will be called “Bootheel Trading Co. by Sheryl Crow,” and will consist of mostly denim-based apparel: t-shirts, jeans, organic cotton this, fair trade that, etc.
A friend told Star magazine that “She’s heading to Australia in October to meet with her partners and start production.”
Oh, she’s not happy raping the public with her overpriced CD’s and concert tickets? Now the dirty, money-grubbing capalist pig has to sell clothing to satisfy her hunger for more excess?
Real cowboys and cowgirls wear wranglers, not “one-square cheryls”.
Fair Trade Organic Denim
Fair trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach to alleviating global poverty and promoting sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a fair price as well as social and environmental standards in areas related to the production of a wide variety of goods. It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries, most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton, wine, fresh fruit, and flowers.
Fair trade proponents include a wide array of international religious, development aid, social and environmental organizations such as Oxfam, Amnesty International, and Caritas International.
Some economists and conservative think tanks see fair trade as a type of subsidy.
They only come in yellow and brown?
They must have a washable a$$ liner in case you don’t get everything with the one square of TP she says we all should use - per bathroom visit.
Wouldn’t want her or anything associated with her near my behind. I think she’s friggin’ insane.
Man, what is the brand name, SKANK?
That is an excellent description. “Muffin Top.”
That could be the name of a band.
An homage to Seinfeld again...
That’s low cut?
Either that, or, “Fair Trade” is a marketing gimmick to get morons to feel good (and regard themselves as superior )about paying higher prices that may or may not actually benefit the individual producers of the commodities. If Travesty International supports it, it’s automatically suspect in my book. They’re only interested in those “human rights” issues that advance their own progressive agenda.
I think so. I have a pair of jeans like these, and I rarely wear them, because a regular shirt or sweater is not long enough to keep me covered in them if I have to sit down or bend over. I didn’t like midriff-baring clothes when I was 16, and I damn well don’t want to wear them at age 36.
Me too. What’s really pathetic is to see some pudgy teenager in a pair of low rise jeans with her pot belly hanging over the waist band.
Which doubles as her other brilliant invention, the detachable, washable, "dining sleeve"' napkin...
I can understand that, but these aren’t what I’d call low rise. I see low rise jeans every day, and these aren’t even close. These http://im.rediff.com/getahead/2007/jul/25keira.jpg are low rise jeans.
Durable and made for frequent (twice daily) laundering.
You cannot go wrong there.
“Pardon me, m’am, but your whole A$$ is showing!”
That boozey, old chick says her plastic water bottle caused her breast cancer. Oh no, it couldn’t be that she never saw an adult beverage she didn’t like. I mean her biggest hit was about getting a beer buzz upon waking. lol
To this day, I cannot believe that the otherwise fine state of Missouri produced such a 'citizen'.
It’s either a subliminal message or a yield (for incoming traffic, if you get my drift) sign.
It’s sort of like ‘aerobic exercise’. You’ve never heard of ‘anaerobic exercise’ (exercise w/o using oxygen? How’s that go again?), either.
Is this the “one square of toilet paper” woman?
That’s her, Miss one-Square herself.
I wonder if these jeans will come pre-skid-marked?
But she’d better not catch any of the rest of us earning any money and squandering it on full rolls of toilet paper, LOL!
Lee-brand jeans fit me like a glove. I’m stickin’ with what works and flatters my @ss, LOL!
I’ll never be a tall, skinny girl. Sheryl will will just have to deal with it. :)
It’ll be amusing to watch her come to the realization of how small her client base truly is. However, by that time, she’ll have cashed all of the checks... ;)
‘Anaerobic exercise’ refers to weight-lifting types of exercise.
Rather difficult to lift weights (or do any other exercise, ftm) w/o oxygen, true?
Rather like the usage of the adjective 'massive' as a synonym for 'enormous' -- the usage is simply wrong, no matter how common it may have become, esp. among ''journalists''.
My 16 y/o daughter has a subscription to a series of country music shows at Nissan Pavilion. She goes with my d/i/l, who was out of town for the Brad Paisley / Jewel show a few weeks back.
Being a guitar player who likes a bit of twang (a tele player), I took her to the show. Paisley is a way above average guitar player, and did not ruin his show with showmanship. He sang and played.
But, Jewel as a country act?!?!? What a farce. Hey Jewel, you’re no Taylor Swift, even though it’s pretty clear that’s what you’re going for.
Jewel did a couple of duets with Merle ... Siver Wings and That’s the Way Love Goes....
Beautiful.. but that doesn’t make an Alaskan native who last tried to be Gwen Steffani.
She should have stuck to folk music.
