We know that in between your musings on viable Middle East exit strategies and standouts in the NFL pre-season, you’ve been wondering what the key denim looks for fall will be. We worry no more, because we’re here to get you dialed in. To nail the trends you gotta think faded, cuffed or colored. A little something for everyone if you will. If you’re still confused, just think of your preferred pastimes. Are you a loadie? Then go for the jeans that are as bleached out as your carpet stains. While other kids were hooked on Spider Man, did you secretly wish that Fonzi was your real dad? By all accounts you should be rocking the rockabilly roll. But if you’re more the type that still dreams you can one day be a roadie for the Crue, then we highly suggest you get yourself into a pair of tighty whities. Well, we hoped we solved you denim dilemma. Next week we debate the ongoing agony of hair gel vs. flat irons.

You know we wish that we had Jesse’s world. J-machine from Encinitas was our winner of the iTouch / surf DVDs sweepstakes, and he’s totally worthy. Just ask him!

“Ok, so here’s a picture of me in my yard. Was so close to shamelessly sending one of the very few photos I have of me surfing instead of my ugly mug… Grew up in Encinitas and have been surfing since I was like 8. Graduated from UCSB in ’01, surf as much as work/waves permit and like snowboarding, too. Um…I work for an energy company and spend my time trying to put new renewable energy projects together (solar and wind so far). Oh yeah, if you can’t tell by my picture, I’m a San Diego Chargers fan!”

Perhaps it’s the fact that it’s been 90-degrees + for two weeks, or maybe it’s all those girls in leotards, but in any case we’re in the mood to give. For a limited time you can save 20% on all regular priced backpacks and luggage. Just don’t say we never did anything for you.
