What A Man Shouldn't Know Unless His Girlfriend's A Man
And even then! From an article on designer denim by Louisa Thomas on Slate:

"Is it bad that I make snap judgments about girls based on what jeans they wear?" a male friend asked recently in an e-mail. "When I see a girl in Sevens, I dismiss her. If she's wearing Citizens, I'm skeptical, especially in recent months. If she's in Diesels, that's legit, as that's an enduring brand. But right now, I'm looking for girls in Hudsons."

I can't even identify which is which. Of course, while I have an ass, I prefer not to be one by paying $100-300 and up for "premium denim." Luckly, all my boyfriend can tell you is whether I'm wearing pants and what a particular pair of pants does for my butt.

As a connisseur of fine womens asses, I thought it was well established among heterosexual men that only certain women should wear jeans, and then only Levis 501 Blues.

Do women notice that my casual-est athletic shoes are from Pay Less? I'd hoped the branding was so weird and unfamiliar that they'd pass as exotic.

Any guy who makes judgements like that deserves to have his sexual orientation heavily questioned.

My gay best friend wouldn't know which jeans somebody was wearing. I wanna see a picture of the guy she quoted. Just guessing, but I wouldn't be surprised if he makes half of Boys Town look overly butch.
