What's in your (watch) pocket? The first blue jeans had four pockets: one in the back, three in the front. The small, extra

An important lesson.
Denim goes girly this spring.
True self-expression must have freedom without gendered boundaries. To allow men true freedom, freedom of their senses, we must loosen the knots of gender expression through clothing and fabric and allow men to be who they naturally are.
For those of you who grew up in a later era (or, perhaps, haven't fully caught up with the rest of Canadian society since those heady days), let me remind you why critics urged guys to burn their tight denim and labelled men who wore the style as less-than: skinny jeans were feminine, and feminine -- for guys -- means "bad." Substitute any other vaguely feminine trend, from floral prints to makeup for men, and it's the same story. But we've made so much progress since then, right?
If there's one thing that defines female casual style, it's our love for denim. Since exploding on the style scene as far back as 1873 (by a fellow you might've heard of, Mr. Levi Strauss), the"'blue jean" has become the go-to-for-almost-every-occasion item in our closets. It's one fashion item that we.all.have.
A fashion faux-pas is what is considered a style blunder. It is something one must not do, in order to not deviate from the societal norm, and spare oneself embarrassment. So they say. Concepts of what's fashionable and what's not, are subjective and ever-changing.
For some of us, denim is a lifestyle choice. Sporting our prized jeans during work and play, it's only natural that maintaining our baby blues is part of life's daily routine. Bordering on an obsession similar to that of wine aficionados, 'denimheads' also thrive on a high that comes from seeking, enjoying and preserving special washes, cuts, vintages and grades of denim. There's just one problem: luxury denim is notoriously expensive. And now, there's a solution.
Happy legs for days.
So THAT's what it's for!
