From Salt Lake City:
If someone approaches you in a parking lot and offers True Religion jeans for a killer price, you might be dealing with a thief. Someone recently stole 50 to 60 pairs of designer jeans from So Cal Style, at 7634 S. Union Park Avenue, and police hope the public can help them catch the suspect.
The break-in took place some time between 10 p.m. Feb. 16, and the following Monday morning. The suspect removed a window, dismantled the alarm system and disabled the video surveillance system.
Sandy City Police Sgt. Victor Quezada said the suspect seemed to be familiar with the store and had most likely cased the property several times before striking. The store was equipped with breaking-glass sensors and motion sensors, both of which the suspect managed to avoid.
Police have video footage of the suspect coming in and disabling the video system, but Quezada said police have little to go on. The suspect appears to be a younger male with a slight build.
Quezada said it is unclear if he is a juvenile or adult. He was wearing a gray or black hooded sweatshirt and a scarf or mask covered the lower part of his face, making it impossible for police to determine his race.
Quezada said it is likely the suspect plans to resell the jeans, which have a retail value of about $20,000, and use the profits to buy drugs.
“Bad guys, they’ll steal anything they can sell,” Quezada said. “They’ll take it and turn it into narcotics.”
Store owner Jason Ayre said the majority of stolen merchandise were designer men’s jeans in a variety of sizes. The brands stolen include Antik Denim, Diesel, True Religion and Chip & Pepper, which all generally retail for between $200 to $300 per pair. The styles taken are all fairly rare, and Ayre said they are unlikely to be found in any other local stores.
Ayre said that the loss of $20,000 in merchandise is a hard blow to his small business, but that he expects to recoup some of the loss through insurance. He is now turning his focus to catching the thief, offering a $1,500 reward. He has also started a Web site featuring the surveillance video from the heist, www.socal-style.com. The site also features descriptions of the stolen items, and Ayre plans to post pictures of the jeans soon.
“If I can at least get it to stop so it doesn’t happen to someone else, that’s my goal,” Ayre said.
Quezada said the suspect might try to sell the jeans out of his car, at a swap meet or on eBay. If you see someone with a large quantity of jeans for sale who does not seem to be a reputable vendor, please call the Sandy City Police tip line at 801-568-4636.
The case is dead until police receive more information, Quezada said.

Okay denim fans – watch out for a large quantity of jeans on Ebay and report it if you see anything fishy! You have to feel bad for this store owner, he was just trying to make a living making denim lover’s rear-ends look fab, and then this happens! Shame!
Kate Walsh, actress on Grey’s Anatomy, and her movie exec husband Alex Youngkept straight faces on during a shopping spree around the trendy Paddington area in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday. The couple spent big on Scanlon & Theodore tops and Tsubi jeans. Kate is wearing a pair of 7 for All Mankind jeans. Would it kill these celebs to grin every now and then? Perhaps they are afraid of creasing their botox! (Kidding, kidding!)

Opened up my local newspaper this morning, and there before me was this great article about jeans and thought our readers might appreciate it too.
Jeans. They’re a staple of the American wardrobe and easily the most versatile, best-loved piece of clothing in history.
The right pair of jeans is like a best friend: They’re always there for you, accompanying you on countless errands, to your favorite nightclub, sometimes even to work. They make you feel and look good.
Great jeans memorize the curve of your hips and give you a booty-licious view from the back.
But if your favorite jeans are on their last leg, it can be a daunting task to replace them. The denim department can be overwhelming these days, with all the styles, cuts and brands. What’s a gal or guy to do?
Former fit model and denim designer Paige Adams-Geller knows a few things about finding the right jeans to flatter your body type. For more than a decade, denim companies – including Seven, Citizens of Humanity and True Religion - based their jeans on Adams-Geller’s 36-27-37 figure.
Now, her own Paige Premium Denim line is one of the hottest brands around, beloved by celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry and Jennifer Garner. People magazine has dubbed Adams-Geller the “Queen of Jeans.” Read More >
