At the risk of sounding shallow, I remember when I bought my first pair of designer jeans. I was not yet a NYC resident, but a visitor in town for a long weekend. I splurged on a respectable pair of straight leg fitted-but-not-skinny pair of blue Diesel jeans from the store on Lexington at 60th Street. They are still in the best shape of all my denim but the second pair of designer jeans I purchased, perhaps the most versatile, was the regular fit original color 7 for all Mankind. Sadly, my pair of 7 jeans was retired long ago. But, it seems the denim gods have answered my prayers because 7 for all Mankind is having a major sample sale in four U.S. cities next month. Obviously the residents of Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco have a few weeks to go before the chaos commences, but it’s never too soon to put this one in your calendar. BlackBerry set.
