Donald Trump won't wear jeans (ugly sweaters are another story)

December 6, 2011 | 10:39 am

Donald-trump1Donald Trump is back. Just a few months ago Trump was flirting with a presidential run and demanding that President Obama produce his birth certificate.

These days his sights have been set slightly lower. He's still planning to participate in a GOP presidential debate, but as the moderator, not a candidate. And he's revealing on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" that even a man as extreme as Donald Trump has lines he won't cross, such as the wearing of blue jeans.

"Fox & Friends" hosts Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade were talking to Trump and introduced Kelly Osbourne, who presented the Donald with his very own ugly Christmas sweater, a gift from Sharon Osbourne (a former "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant).

While Trump seemed thrilled with the sweater, he drew the line at wearing it with a pair of jeans and Doc Martens, as suggested by Kelly.

"I don't wear them too often," Trump said. "I'm sort of a country club guy. I like the other things."

But just to show he wasn't completely out of touch, he threw a bone to denim enthusiasts everywhere.

"Jeans are great. You know what's happening? People are wearing jeans now to golf clubs and country clubs. It's become part of the fashion. But so far, not for me."
