AT A boutique where denim dreams come true and almost no one is bigger than a size 10, a woman flags down a salesgirl and confides a terrible problem. This is as close to an emergency as you can get in the premium-denim world. Nearly 30 brands are here at B Scene: jeans with small pockets and big pockets and specially angled pockets, jeans with close-together pockets that make a wide butt narrower, jeans with no yoke to make a butt extra round. There are rhinestoned and embroidered pockets to call attention to your butt, and plain pockets to make your butt disappear. Every woman does that half-twirl at the mirror, back arched, head craned around. If the jeans are right, the experience is transformative, like putting on a magic cloak. For a while we were stuck in a dark place, our jeans tragically utilitarian. We bought them in stores decorated with hay bales. We fooled with acid washes and elastic waists. We had poor pocket technology.

Fashion trends come and go, but denim jeans are one item of clothing that will always be a staple in many closets. It's the particular style of denim that changes year after year, some decades seeing a rise in baggy jeans, others full of tight, low-rise moments. Back in the mids, when jeans were first invented , they were mainly popular with miners and workers who needed to wear something sturdy and reliable. It took a few more decades before jeans became a casual staple worn by all genders on a regular basis. It wasn't until the s that jeans became more mainstream when they entered the Hollywood scene in popular Westerns. Later, in the very early s, jeans were just starting to become more of a fashion trend thanks to actors like Marlon Brando and James Dean wearing them on a pretty regular basis. Still, even as they became more "cool," they had a Western vibe to them and were primarily worn by men. It wasn't until when Marilyn Monroe wore a pair in her film "River of No Return" that they became a staple for women as well. Throughout most of the s, jeans had a boxy look to them — they weren't fitted or particularly baggy, they just looked rather stiff.
