Rowe’s attitude about shopping for jeans is rather funny, well maybe not for a man but what woman has Shop Phobia?  I don’t know about you, but I love to shop (even shopping for my husband because he hates too)!  “Frankly, I’ve never understood the whole notion of jamming yourself into a dressing room with an armful of new styles to find the ‘perfect look,” said Rowe. “And from what I’ve seen, I’m not alone. The guys I know aren’t going to spend a hundred dollars on a pair of pants with rhinestones and fake stains and zippers to nowhere. And don’t even get me started on jeans with rips and holes already in them. Madness.”

Premium Select Regular Straight Leg Jean

Sorry Mike, but I love rhinestones on my jeans and just maybe I can convince Lee to come out with an affordable pair of rhinestone jeans!  On a serious note, when I shop for jeans for myself or my hubs (yes I shop for him because if I did not he would never get any new clothes), I look for a quality pair of jeans that will hold up to “manly work” and wash well. I also look for an affordable pair of jeans. Just because a pair of jeans is $120 does not mean they are any better than the $50 pair. While I have owned jeans that were pretty expensive, I find that Lee Jeans last just as long and are just as comfy.

Rowe’s idea of the perfect pair of jeans is pretty simple: “They should last. They should fit. They should fade. They should never cost more than fifty bucks. And they should be blue.” Wow, he is easy to please!

Lee’s Premium Select jeans for men should fall right into what categories that Mike and most men look for in jeans and can be purchased for $42 at Lee.com, Kohl’s, JCPenney and Sears.

Mike has a message for us, that may explain just why our men do not want too shop.

Do you have a man in your life that hates to shop? Are you a man that would rather crawl in a hole before digging in racks of clothes to find the perfect top and pair of jeans? If so, now is your chance to win a pair of Lee Premium Select jeans. But you must promise you will introduce Mike to the man in your life or try harder to overcome the fear of the dressing room!

    My most shop phobic moment would be when I shopped at a Ross store after I had just given birth in one of my heavier pregnancies. I am normally a thin person and I couldn’t believe I had gotten that big. I just wanted to leave the store.
