The Monday Hotness: Patent #139,121 Edition

Filed under: Uncategorized — Miss Plumcake @ 4:50 pm

Y’all don’t even KNOW how hard I’ve worked for today’s Monday Hotness. I’ve been on vacation for a week, so when I got back to my computer my password was gone and all sorts of hijinks ensued.

Anyhoodle, 136 years ago this week, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis were awarded the patent for the copper-riveted denim pants we now know and love as blue jeans.

I own one pair of jeans.  They’re the “Blue” fit Lane Bryant boot-cut jeans, which I love with a love that is more than a love. I’m wearing them today with the black and blue brocade vintage tuxedo jacket I’m wearing EVERYWHERE these days. Yeah, okay, blah blah blah, Plumcake’s pants, whatever, bring on the hot guys.


You gotta have faith. And hairgel. And a bathroom door that locks.

Let’s just put it out there. George Michael wore the hell out of a pair of jeans. He was a little before my time pop-idol wise, but I remember being fascinated by the Freedom 90 video with the great 90’s supermodels.


also before my time: Bruce Springsteen, but his Born in the USA cover is the second most iconic close-up blue jean album cover (the first being the Rolling Stones’ legendary “Sticky Fingers” cover. That’s Joe Dallesandro by the way and NOT Mick Jagger, and good for him.)

James Dean

a bit more my style: James Dean, but even more up my alley (if you know what I mean, and I think you do)

Marlon Brando is a Wild One

Marlon Brando in The Wild One.

“What are you rebelling against, Johnny?”


  1. LOVE IT!!!!

    Newsflash and making me madder than hell:

  2. The Annalucia has the Lane Bryant jeans too, but in the Yellow Fit (for the ladies not blessed with the discernible waistline). She wears them when she is at the range with the 20-gauge, or doing the heavy cleaning at home, or in any super-casual situation which requires the pockets.

    She is also surprised that the Plumcake has quoted the “What are you rebelling against, Johnny?” without also giving the Johnny’s reply. :-)

  3. Ohhh, George Michael. I care not what gender floats his boat…all I cared about at the hormonal age of 16 was that he was gorgeous. And when I saw him live, in concert, wearing THOSE JEANS, I thought I would die.

    Then, 21 years later, I saw him again, last summer. And he wore THOSE JEANS. And yes, he was still wearing the hell out of them.

    Thanks for the memory!

  5. Some friends of ours trained their adorable three-year old daughter (who of course, like all three-year olds, threw the occasional willful tantrum) to respond to “What are you rebelling against?” with a bright, cheerful “Whatcha got?”
