Our Favorite Brands Of Decades Past: Where Are They Now?

Jordache: Then

Calvin may have made the practice iconic with a writhing Brooke Shields, but Jordache was the first brand to successfully put the sex in selling jeans. In 1979, the label soared (plunged?) to infamy with a television spot featuring a topless model on horseback—banned, naturally, by all three major networks—and continued to push the boundaries of propriety (while racking up record sales on high-end denim) throughout the '80s and '90s.
