When it was popular:
Description: HASH blue jeans where bell bottom and had a double-star design and the letters H.A.S.H. stiched in gold thread on the back right pocket. Many teenageres cut-off the pant legs to make shorts with frayed fringes. The shorter the better. I still have a pair that I got from a teenage neighbor for helping her clean her mom's kitchen so she could go out with her boyfriend.

I remember these jeans! I finally was able to get a pair in the 9th grade. I was very tiny and sizes ran different back then. Anyway, I went to hem the pants and needed to cut some of the length off and cut one let way too short! I was so upset!!

I had 6 pairs of HASH jeans, because they were the best fit ever... Anyone remember calling them Star Butt jeans? Or the ones with the Rainbow stitching? Ahh those were the days. (I just bid on a pair on Ebay.) couldn't resist.

In the 70's I had a pair of jeans with a star on the butt and loved them but didn't know they were HASH jeans. Thanks for letting me know! I wish I still had them!

I wish I still had my H.A.S.H jeans!!! I loved them and also wish I still had them. My mom and I were talking about them and I knew I had to jump on my computer and see what kind of info I could find on them. I am hoping to find a picture so I can show it to my kids!

Oh yes HASH jeans, a staple of the mid 70's. Get your Hash jeans on with a polyester shirt and a Puka shell necklace. LOL!

Crazy as it sounds... I wore these in high school, and now my 11 yr old 6th grader can fit into them! They look as good on her as they did on me in high school... I cannot believe I was that tiny when I was a senior! But my husband (of 25 yrs) can remember them on me! Crazy!!

I was in 7th grade when I first saw the most gorgous guy in the 7th grade wearing the "Hash Jeans". The kind with the metal buckle on the butt. I couldn't take my eyes off his butt! I begged my mom to pleeeze buy me some, but NO! They were nearly $30 and I wasn't allowed to shop anywhere but Sears or JC Penny. Finally by the 8th grade I got some, but then they just wern't quite as cool! But the denim of the late 70's was so awesome! Remember the syle was to have a plastic comb in the back pocket?

Like Lisa above, I wasn't allowed to buy expensive jeans either. I was a Senior in 1982 when I wore my White HASH jeans with a red and blue star on the right cheek. I submitted a photo if they post it.

With so many cruddy jeans made can we find the creator of HASH jeans and bring them back! Manufacturers need to listen to those who buy. Some of us are NOT size 2 or 3 and belly buttons at 50ish are NOT sexy! Let's make a concerted effort to restart that awesome trend of the 70's. I still have some tie-dyes! :>)

My sister had a pair of HASH jeans. I paid her to let me wear them. They were better than any other pair of jeans. Heavy jean material held everything in. I had my Senior pictures taken in them.

I was hoping the company was still around, they made everyone's butt look good. Can someone out there please re-create them. After 35 years my butt needs them.

I used to be a buyer for a chain of clothing stores in North Dakota. We bought 1000's of HASH jeans. We would go to Winnepeg each season to look a all the new pocket designs that were available. Man was that a GAS!!! No matter how many we bought, it wasn't enough. It was amazing how many different ways there were to put stars on the back pockets of thase wonderfull HASH jeans! HASH forever!

I loved my HASH jeans and nothing fit or lasted like they did. Bring them back to us please. They were the best!!! We are the ones that buy the clothes....all they have to do is make them again and they will sell like hot cakes. They were the best and they were made like no other.

I'm including this story in a pilot about growing up as a future gay in Fairbanks, Alaska. In 7th grade I was an outcast who wanted to be popular. One Sunday at the mall they were putting out a brand new shipment of HASH Overalls - chocolate brown corduroy with a zipper all the way to the crotch. HOT! We were poor, but I begged my mom to buy them for me, certain I'd be the first kid in school to have them and up my social standing. Monday morning I'm posing casually by my locker thinking I'm hot stuff when I see the popular clique coming down the hallway. Suddenly there was snickers and then pointing and laughter. Rhonda Shouse, the most popular girl in school, was wearing THE EXACT SAME OVERALLS. I was wearing girls overalls! I ran straight to the office and called my mom to come get me. When she asked what was wrong I told her I'd accidentally had diarrhea in my pants. Then for the next year I had to pretend to wear them once a week, but switch into other clothes behind our house so my mom wouldn't get mad. Yeesh.

Forgive me but I remember Hash jeans not for stars on the rear end but for snap botton fly. It was a trend where I was and assumed that all Hash were the same but maybe not. They were cool and would love to see them again. 501 button has nothing on the metal snap button of what I recall the Hash jeans had. And yes the comb in the back pocket was a country wide trend!!

Just scored 2 pair in a garage at an estate sale... Loved my Hash Jeans... THEY were the best! (the bigger the bell the cooler you were)

I'm sorry, but I hated Hash jeans. From my (male) perspective they were terrible. All the women wore them because they thought they looked good, but they made every woman's butt look huge, even if she had a nice one. I was glad to see them go.

I worked all summer every summer for new school clothes every year. My family visited family in Montana every year and I would buy at least 2 pair. I wore them all through high school even after they were not in style any more, because they never wore out

I just found a pair at a thrift shop. They are super high waist with lots of belt loops for a skinny belt. 2 snaps and a zipper. No back pockets and made in California. Does anyone know when H.A.S.H. made jeans in the US?

I had a pair of HASH jeans when I was a junior in high school. I absolutly LOVED LOVED LOVED them. I caught so much hell from my dad, for spending $30 on a pair of jeans with a star on my butt. He just didn't understand. They were way cool. Those were the days. - February 09, 2015 - Report this comment
I bought & have a BN, super cherry (car lingo) pair of Nino Cirutti "Brass On The Ass" jeans (36x32) with full labels. I paid $50.00 for them in 1974 at Macy's/New York. Anyone interested?

Best fitting jeans sold in the northwest of the USA in the 70's. The thick denim lasted a long time. The story I heard is that someone purchased a warehouse storing thick denim that no other company wanted. The early designs had a great fit. The simple star back pocket was good but then they stopped offering a basic jean for us guys and tried to make various, undesirable fashion pockets on the guys jeans. If I remember correctly they also substituted cheap, thin cloth later and soon they went out of business. I don't think I have found better fitting and long lasting jeans since then.

I have an original studio design H A S H JEANS jacket with cotton lining and hoodie also with the gold star on the back and I believe it was made in 1975). The label inside is quite fancy stating manufactured in Winnipeg Canada Hard Rock Stonewash. Good Canadian brand, too bad it is no longer around.

My dad was the pattern and marker maker and production manager for HASH jeans in Winnipeg. We moved to California where they tried to move in to the LA market. After the company closed my dad worked with the Marciano brothers on Guess jeans patterns and Girbaud Jeans. He even made custom patterns and jeans for President Ronald Reagan! It’s nice to see that so many people liked wearing his creations!

Wow! I worked at HASH Jeans in LA for about three years. Great place to work back then. Earl Shibou was very cool and he’d walk through the office with his Doberman, Brando. I was the “RA” guy—return authorizations. Yeah, I was cool back then!

I owned a clothing store in Boise, Idaho. WQe opened in 1976 and found Hash Jeans soon there after. We sold thousands of Hash jeans. They were a tremendous fit, high waisted and made from heavy weight denim. Sylvia & Peter were the L.A sales team we purchased all the products from. Great memories!!

Had several pairs. Still have one pair that say "Ski Bum" on the beach right pocket. I was wearing my original "single star" design pair in shop class and got carburetor cleaner splashed on them. Which mate several little holes in them. My mom traced the star, cut see Some from an old pair of jeans and sewed them over each with that same gold colored thread; the next time I wore them, everyone's wanted to know where I got them; they all wanted a pair. Also, we didn't call those bell bottoms because they didn't flair a lot at the mid-shin or just above the ankle; they were pretty wide from mid thigh all the way down, so we called that style "elephant leg" jeans.
