New Niners stadium really could be “Field of Jeans”

One of the more obvious, but nevertheless clever, labels that arose once word broke that Levi Strauss had acquired the naming rights to the new 49ers Stadium was this one:  Field of Jeans.

Even 49ers CEO Jed York joked about the possibility at the time the $220 million arrangement, which necessarily will require Levi’s to sell a lot of jeans, was announced.

Mike Rosenberg of the San Jose Mercury News recently reported that the company has applied for trademark protection of the label “Field of Jeans,” along with “Win One for the Zipper.”

While it’s possible that either or both will be used in connection with the stadium, the marketing of it, or related merchandise, there’s also a chance that Levi Strauss simply wants to cast a wide net of legal protection, in order to block third parties from selling T-shirts with “Field of Jeans” or “Win One for the Zipper” printed on it.

Along those lines, they probably should also trademark this one:  “Hey babe!  Come have a seat in Section 501!”

    “FIELD OF SKIN TIGHT JEANS” and the slogan would be “COWBOYS BUTTS, DRIVE US NUTS”

    How about “Crotch Bite Field” or “Butt Crack Yard”? Could also stick with “Candledick Park”.

    I continue to laugh at lionsdraftguy and his bitter troll-like existence. Keep it coming DB. You’re about as worthless as a Matt Millen draft pick.

    Maybe instead of trademark protection, the team should hire more protection for the fans that dont want to get assaulted, knifed, and attacked by the Niner “fanbase”.

    Since it’s San Fran, maybe they could elaborate the name to “Field Of Stoned And Unwashed Jeans”.

    Levis is owned by Chinese. How about The China Closet? Too bad an American company didn’t step up.

    Hey raynman49 – Good story…. but Levi’s remains a private company that is owned and controlled by descendants and relatives of Levi Strauss’s four nephews and is still officed and HQ’d here in San Francisco.

    “Skidmark Porch” is hilarious!

    Well done.

    Oops. Made in China.

    Here’s a catchy theme for the new SF stadium,

    “Seahawks Nation prefers the comfortable fit of Wranglers”.

    Kinda grows on ya doesn’t it? Maybe they could get Bam-Bam or Sherman, to be their spokesplayer.
