People used to pay big buck for them (myself included) but now they are gone.

It's interesting, only brands like Levi Strauss, Lee jeans and Wrangler that have been around long before the brand name craze are still doing well today.

If you've been in the U.S. since the 80s, what was your favorite brand?

I love levis today but back then I would have chosen Jordache or Sassoon.

Remember the jingle "Ahh, lalloo, Sassoon", as featured in the Sassoon Jeans commercials?

My former co-worker, Manuel Ytuarte (and still my brethren), got credit for "writing" it.



I still wear Wrangler today. Just bought two new pairs (carpenter style) last Friday.

They are too plain to be paying that much money for.

By the way, this is the first time I've heard of them.
