Glenn Beck Launches a Denim Line
Radio host Glenn Beck is helping you look better in pants, thanks to the launch of his very own denim line for men. Beck, who is launching the line under his clothing line label for 1791.com, says one of the many perks of purchasing pants from his line as opposed to other manufacturers is that his are actually supporting the American economy (which is one of the reasons Beck decided to boycott popular denim brand Levi’s last year, for manufacturing its product overseas).
"Each pair of jeans has been painstakingly constructed by America's most skilled denim craftsmen to create an honest pair of jeans," says the website.
"100% made in America," Beck said in an interview, further supporting his jeans. "It has the copper rivets, it has the button fly, it has the exact fabric that, if you’re my age, you grew up with. The exact fabric that the miners used to use in the 1800s.”
But if you’re looking for a pair of already-worn-in jeans, this is not where you’ll find them. You've got to do that work yourself. “They’re not made this way anymore. We made them the original way. We made them so they will last forever. We’re not going to stonewash these and beat them all up and tear them. You’re going to have to earn those stripes yourself,” says Beck on his website. “They are more expensive than a regular pair of jeans because this is 100% made in America.”
According to the Inquisitr.com, The made-in-America jeans are “spun at Cone Denim Mills in Greensboro, North Carolina and cut and sewn at a Kentucky factory that opened during the 1920s.” The jeans come in two styles and sell for a retail price of $129.99.

You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
Put down the wrinkled button-down, step away from the Crocs, and open your closet. We need to talk about the new rules of casual.
