Wow, how much denim is the cast of Austin Stories wearing?! Seriously, the guy on the right can make 15 pairs of skinny jeans from all that denim.

Quite random......I know.....but just wow.

This is supposed to be a fun thread. If you have nothing to contribute, please ignore.

At least the women’s jeans of today are very form fitting and quite pleasing!

I got on a kick of nostalgic tv shows and bought Season 2 of Beverly Hills 90210. They were wearing jeans that were so high-waisted that I swear those jeans stopped just below the bra-line!
And I know it’s the fashion, but I hate the skinny jeans trend!

And can conceal a full-size .45 under all that baggy denim.

That reminds me more of 80s jeans.

At least they’re not scratched up and torn on purpose. I miss the old days when a new pair of jeans was dark blue and very stiff. (I also miss the days when I looked pretty good in them.)

Dee Dee Ramone (pictured far right) hated the Ramones' band uniform. Kids at the shows would pull at his ripped jeans and make the tears even worse so much so that the pants would become unwearable at future gigs (meaning he had to keep spending money on them).

He also wanted to dress better/differenly as time went on (and he eventually cut his hair short and bleached it to show he wasn't standing with the band).

I only buy very stiff very dark blue jeans... I refuse to pay more money for wornout jeans that will rip out in the crotch in 3 months. Tractor supply is a good source.

One can only wonder how many denims died to make those jeans...

No 90's jean collection would be complete without Francois Girbaud jeans.

"And I know it’s the fashion, but I hate the skinny jeans trend!"

You and me both! I see so many females that are, well, far from skinny and trying to pull them off. And on the other side of the spectrum, the very thin ones end up looking spindly-legged.

Nothing like a good pair (or several) of boot cut jeans, IMO.

In the eighties I used to have to lie down on my bed to zip my Jordache jeans. And standing I had a concave tummy back then, boy they looked good with heels

I think jeans peaked in the mid 2000s. They had all the best qualities at once: low waist, form fitting, and flared at the ankle.

The ‘70s had it right except for the high waist.

The ‘80s were pretty bad with high waist and tapered leg, but at least they were form fitting.

The ‘90s were the nadir with high waist, tapered leg, and baggy fit. During this period jeans did everything wrong.

Then all the sudden in the 2000s it’s like the sun came out and the dark clouds of bad jeans receded, leaving us to frolick in the sunny uplands of attractive jeandom.

The problem now is the tapered legs, and I fear high waists may be on the horizon...

high waist is better than pants that are down to the nether regions

I notice Richard Kiel is in that movie. Haven’t heard/seen much of him since he made Moonraker (he was in movies dating back to the 1960s). He did a local radio ad recently for a surveillance equipment store.

I don’t remember those, but I’m embarrassed to admit having purchased two acid wash jackets, just as the fad was ending. I still have them. I’m even too embarrassed to use them for yard work.

I quit buying anything from Levi’s (which includes Dockers) over a decade ago due to the family propensity for supporting anti-2A groups.

One word for you: Carhartt.

I don't get this. Do you mean to tell me that clothing styles change over time? Is that what's meant by "fashion"?

Look for Wrangler 47s, rigid. Under $25.00.

I don’t think I have a picture...we didn’t snap pics back then the way we do now.

At least I didn’t. Wearing them was part of being normal.

I do have some showgirl pics though...

Not particulalrly...my wife absolutely HATES the low “hip huggers” designed by gays that are seemingly the only thing available these days for women. She very much prefers the high-waisted jeans of the 1990s but can’t find them anywhere.

Yeah, that’s true too..the denim fabric they use nowadays is just cheap and thin and doesn’t last more than a month of two with hard usage.
