Aww Lucky brand and Wrangler were the brands that fit my body type best. Wrangler's are ugly ass but their denim jeans once prevented me from accidentally hacking my leg open in a drunken box cutter accident. I will always be grateful.

I wonder if Lucky Brand jeans will now disappear from Costco stores.

Lucky was gimmicky and ridiculously expensive back in the late 90s.  I'm surprised they still have 200 stores.

Sounds like it was referencing mostly the stores.  Doesn't necessarily mean the product is gone.  But don't get your hopes up.

Huh. Only Lucky brand thing I've had enter my consciousness is cigarettes.

Of course I couldn't tell you the brand of any of my clothes without checking them. I know next time I go shopping for clothes in a couple years what I buy today won't be around then. Probably neither will the store. Nothing will fit the same anyway. I'm always +/- 30 lbs when I hit the store next time.

This devotion to brand has always been something I could not wrap my mind around except when it comes to food. They seem to just appear and vanish always new "collections" and brands and always they go bust.

In this case, "Lucky" is a misnomer.

I'm sad, as I've bought a lot of stuff from them.  Their jeans are the best I've had, and their T shirts last really well.  I'm 38 years old, so Abercrombie and Hollister don't really work for me, but I'm not to Grandpa stage and shopping at Sams club (yet).  Lucky was a nice in between.   They were pricey at full price, but their sales made them not any more than anywhere else with similar quality.

Lucky are still my favorite jeans I've ever owned.

I should see if I can scoop up some clearance sale jeans..

Never heard of Lucky.

They have a retail outlet down the street from me. I wonder if it's one of the 13 stores closing

Fark!! They're the only jeans that fit me!!!

For the life of me I thought this was about the grocery chain. I miss them. We HAD a Lucky's decades ago, then it became a Sav-Mart, then it just closed. It remains vacant to this day, an eyesore and blight on my rapidly disintegrating town. At any rate I would've been really confused if I walked into that place looking for beer and snacks.

/ Also what farking weird 80s hell are we in? We are stuck in the past! Jeans stores? What? Do we even have malls anymore? We do!?

I always assumed Lucky's, the grocery store, was a West Coast thing. I never did see any locations around NYC or Philly when I lived on the East Coast.

The best thing about Lucky jeans is that it says "Lucky You" when you (or someone else) unzips them

Ditto. Multiple pairs bought throughout the years have always been the most comfortable, best fitting, favorites

Faux-luxury is something that needs to go away.
