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.
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.)
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 in The Wild One.
“What are you rebelling against, Johnny?”
