As it jockeys for shelf space during the coming holiday season, Levi Strauss & Co. will be in an enviable but costly position. Customers are snapping up its 501 jeans--but the troubled apparel company isn't meeting the demand. That's because earlier this year Levi opted against kicking 501 jeans production into high gear and risking a costly inventory glut if retailers couldn't move the goods.

The appeal of bluejeans has faded since the days when screen legend James Dean oozed coolness in his Levi's and the Woodstock generation took on the world in ripped-up dungarees. With khakis ruling the retail roost for casual clothing and designer jeans grabbing young fashion-conscious consumers, venerable Levi Strauss & Co. has seen its market shrink quicker than a T-shirt in a dryer.

Robin Piccone, who turned swimwear around three years ago with sexy neoprene swimsuits for Body Glove, emerged Tuesday night as the California Designer of the Year. Piccone, wearing a Piccone-designed black chiffon duster and spaghetti-strap evening dress, thanked the audience of about 600--gathered in Santa Monica's Museum of Flying--for the honor, which some industry observers thought was long overdue.

Re "Pileup foreseen if Big 3 crash," Nov. 17 It is self-righteous to blame Detroit's failures on the reluctance of automobile company managers to build high-efficiency vehicles. Detroit did not focus on making these vehicles because its customers didn't want them. Instead of criticizing Detroit, we should thank the automobile industry for continuing to pay good wages and retirement benefits to so many Americans. Today, when you go into a store, nearly every product on display will have been made in China.

It's old and dusty, and when it rains sewage sometimes backs up. There are no plasma screen TVs or elaborate stereo systems in the locker rooms. The food court is outside.
