Sheryl Crow To Release New Western-Style Jeans Line
All Headline News ^ | August 7, 2008 | Anne Lu

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.


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Conspiracy; Music/Entertainment
KEYWORDS: cotton; denim; fairtrade; fashion; jeans; organic; sherylcrow
Do the jeans come with one square of TP in the back pocket? *SMIRK*

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! ;)

Photos here. The styling is OK, but they're too low cut for my taste.

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...

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.”

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 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.

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.

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.

One square of TP 1n the back pocket, and the hammer and sickle hot-stitched on a front pocket.

To this day, I cannot believe that the otherwise fine state of Missouri produced such a 'citizen'.

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.

Right enough. I was referring, though, to the (evidently) willful misuse of the adjective 'anaerobic', which word -- in any other context -- means 'pertaining to, caused by, or characterised by a lack of oxygen'.

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.
