I love Levi’s 501 jeans. The original button fly jeans. The only brand I wear. These are the real jeans that look like Levi’s from the 60’s. But I hate the feel of new, raw, stiff hard jeans. It’s so uncomfortable. Apparently Mr. Bowie doesn’t share my view on new jeans.

  1. I agree with him Lovely Mr.Bowie… For you, there is one thing only, the magic or fabric… maybe its pattern, or maybe its smell… All I can understand that you really love your human 🙂 Thank you, but we love too. Nia

    • Thank you so much, my dear friends! Wishing you all, Bavarescats, Mom Marilia and sister Rafaela, all the best for 2016!

  2. Oh yes, Levi Strauss. They used to employ quite a number of Edmontonian’s in a plant here, which was one of the last ones to close in North America. They bought out a company called GWC. I wondered about the dates, and found this interesting article on a Google search:


    The original building they occupied back in 1911 still stands and is actually not too far from my house since we live very close to downtown.

    So I feel even more connected to Mr Bowie this morning. x B

  3. Mr. Bowie is enjoying sharing something you like. He is also marking them so other cats know you belong to him! Mr. Bowie is a very responsible cat, and watches out for his human. 🙂

    • Haha!! Thank you my friend for this useful information. I’m definitely going to try it out…
      Christmas was great; lots of treats for Mr. Bowie and chocolate for the human.

    • Thank you, Laura! Christmas was great. We had a small family gathering at my Dad’s place with cake, ice cream and lots of chocolate…

      PS: just found out you were the most active commenter on HoB this year. Thank you so much!

      • Sounds like you had a cozy Christmas. I was?? I’m not surprised though because I ADORE your blog and have sent it to my friends and family. You have a knack with writing posts and your photos of Mr. Bowie are so wonderful! Happy New Year to the both of you!

  4. HaHa! I remember my brother standing them up in our yard as he hosed them in an attempt to soften them. Mr Bowie looks quite comfortable.

    • Haha… cat hatched! Love this!

      Thank you for hanging around on HoB all this time. Much appreciated, my dear and loyal friend.
      Wishing you a very Happy New Year and a fantastic start in 2016!

  5. It seems like most of us readers agree that Mr.Bowie is warming up and pressing your new 501s, he might even have a new job description ” The Iron Cat”. Wishing you both a pleasant and delicious New Year of 2016 wrapped in chocolate. Moshu and Cornelia

    • Thank you, Cornelia and Moshu! Wishing you a very Happy New Year and a fantastic start in 2016!
      Iron Cat Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” to Moshu.

  6. I think Levi’s made changes in sourcing their denim stock several years ago. At least, that’s what I read.

    Besides, no article of clothing can be broken in without having some fur deposited on it. 🙂

    • Having some fur deposited on my clothes…?? The story of my life!

      Happy New Year, David! Thank you for hanging around all this time!

  7. 501s. I was so tall and thin as a teenager that men’s 501s were the only jeans long enough for me. I used to struggle with those darn buttons because they were opposite of women’s buttons. Ah, the memories. Now I just dress my husband in them. Like you, they are the only kind he has worn since we got married. Because they are perfect.

    • Haha… the buttons! I can imagine it was difficult. I prefer the buttons, don’t like zippers. And like you said, 501’s are just perfect.
