    I never 2got" the fuss about Jeans - was all about Tracksuit Bottoms for me to be honest

    If I can add my "similar first pair" - these were my most adorable pair of Puma King Tracksuit Bottoms ever

    Like my good friend Darren - I grew up wearing these and though they are'nt the same as Jeans I agree, yes they are in retrospect - it's just like Cars and Bikes and Dogs and Cats and Rabbitts and Guinea Pigs - the conneections and feelings are there and are very very simlar from "back in the day" that that feeling feels immenseupon saving for a certain item of clothing!

    I always thought that Levi's were the generic brand for jeans in the same way that Hoover was for vacuum cleaners and all that - didn't Shakin' Stevens specifically wear Levi's when was on Top of the Pops circa 1981-1982?

    I know that Hart Bochner (Ethan in Supergirl) wore Lee jeans because not only can you see the Lee logo very briefly on the label at back of his jeans in some scenes (such as the stunt ones with the truck outside) and getting them dirty in the process, but Lee Jeans was also mentioned in the credits, and so therefore he was "officially" wearing them, and was just as much a model as he was an actor.

    I remember going to the Levi's shop in Northampton in 1997 & buying some jeans at a discount, which I think I still have but won't be able to fit into.

    I started a thread about 1980s men's jeans not long after I joined this forum, and commented about how they used be portrayed a lot sexily in adverts and all that - I wish that I could buy a pair of those jeans from one of those retro shops that pop up now and again, although the skinny sort that One Direction and Bieber have made famous are the closest there is.

    I am going to do one of those portrait sittings on my birthday and I shall be bringing a pair of those that I have with me.
