The Jean Report

One thing every girl needs regardless of whether she is a cowgirl or not, is a great pair of jeans. We are so lucky at Burns Saddlery and the Burns Cowboy Shops' that we get to wear jeans every day so having great jeans is a must. So what makes a pair of jeans go from just a pair of jeans to a great pair of jeans? I conducted a little survey of the ladies that work at Burns Saddlery and Burns Cowboy Shop in Park City to find out what they thought.

I first asked in their opinion, what the deciding factors they use when shopping for jeans. The factors that we all agree are the most important in jeans are fit, comfort and cut. The price, color and embellishments aren’t quite as crucial in our decision to buy a pair of jeans.

What makes us want to try on a pair of jeans? First they have to look good just sitting there, unique and stylish, then we have to be able to find our size. But the biggest reason for trying on a pair of jeans is to see how they fit and see how they look, especially if they are flattering to our assets.

So what takes a pair of jeans from just jeans to your favorite jeans? Hands down, comfort and fit are the most important factors in making a pair of jeans your favorite. I asked the girls what their favorite brands of jeans were (even ones that we don’t sell). Silver, Adiktd, Taverniti So., Miss Me and Q-Baby were some of the answers.

Of course I asked what line of jeans that we carry were their favorites and here are our winners:

Adiktid Jeans for fit

Rock & Roll Cowgirl for the bling factor

Cowgirl Tuff for the fit and look

Wrangler Q Baby for the stretch and comfort We would love to hear about your favorite jeans. Leave us a comment and we'll let everyone know what our readers favorites are.

We Are Thankful

"Gratitude helps you grow and expand; gratitude brings joy and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you" Eileen Caddy

Our back room here at Burns Saddlery is so incredibly full, we are tripping over each other and everything. For this we are grateful. We are grateful that we have the opportunity to go on the road and take the things that make our stores so amazing and share with others. We are full of gratitude to those that stop by to see us on the road, in one of the stores or on the web. We are appreciative to those that tell others about us. If it weren’t for the amazing people that we meet every day, we wouldn’t have the opportunity to experience the success that we have been blessed with. So with thankful hearts we wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.
