Because this FaceBook conversation is PRICELESS! These are serious riders…a little SAT analogy: They are to Horses as if I were actually DENIM!

POSTED BY: Tammy Davis of Chez Moi Boutique in Soldotna, AK…and a bestie! http://www.chezmoistyle.com/ ……this is a design for Australia Wrangler…If I could get THIS design in a riding jean…well I would never take them off!!! It is spring time in Alaska…which means the horse tack comes out of storage and the arena is groomed! Then…I realized I have no riding jeans in my closet that fit me!! My first thought: I need to pick up some Wranglers. Second thought: who can I pay to break them in!!:) They are like Carharts…if you have never worn them it is like starching your jeans putting them on, and then giving it about 2 months to make them soft.
My other concern: Like Casey I am in high end retail…last year I rode the whole summer in My Joe’s Muse jeans…let’s just say it was super comfy and my ass was covered (and looked good) but the inside seams just didn’t last long….the best thing about the Wrangler brand in my opinion is that iconic sexy little brown label on the ass! But the pocket placement needs to be modernized…so get to it KC!!:)

to better denim
Casey Golden, known by many as the @butttherapist, always finds the greatest jeans for her clients, regardless of their shape, stature, age or gender.
I am not using the word always lightly.
I mean it.
I also mean it when I say that she is not a trend monger. She doesn’t force us to adopt fads, and won’t allow us to ignore own dimensions, personalities and (ahem) good taste in the name of being on-trend. Instead, she helps us embrace the best jeans and fashion to articulate our senses of style. She brings us the jeans that make us feel how we want to feel—the most confident, most rockin’ versions of ourselves.
Just imagine if she could use her skills to design, rather than find, jeans for us in the near future.
If you’d like a preview of this future, you can see and vote for Casey’s design entry in the Next Blue competition tomorrow, April 19. I’m looking forward to seeing how she translated her amazing insights as a stylist to a pair of jeans, and I already know I’ll be voting for her design.
I believe in supporting talent when I see it. And for the past two years I’ve seen that Casey has more than a good eye and work ethic. She has a talent (or probably what some would call a gift) for boosting people’s confidence, and frankly, their butts.
You can learn more about Casey on her blog and on the Next Blue site. If you live in the Portland area, you can also see her in action at Mario’s 310. Yes, the jeans there aren’t inexpensive, but they’re more than worth it.
With that, there’s just one more thing for me to say.
Vote for Casey! This was posted by:

POST SUBMISSION FROM DIDZ: You should never use softener on denim. Especially stretch denim because it wears out the fabric and you will get holes much easier and the jean will also lose a lot of it fit.
Dryer is always a no go on jeans, and as you said hang drying is the best!
