Even admitting I am not a huge fan of angular jeans, I abutment them — affectionate of.
I accept some slim-fit jeans that are abbreviate abundant for my taste, but I do not own a brace of super-skinny jeans adapted for Pabst Blue Ribbon connoisseurs — it’s aloof not for me because 1) I am not a affiliate of an indie band; 2) I do not anticipate I am air-conditioned abundant to don sterility-inducing garments; and 3) I’ll aloof say it: I charge some jerk room.
That said, back Levi’s appear its new Ex-Girlfriend Jeans aftermost month, Stephen Colbert gave a actively “wagged finger” at them. For that, I accept to acclaim him.
Spray-on fit? As angular as it gets? Super-snug all over? You ability as able-bodied buy a brace of women’s jeans (something that abounding guys do anyway).
Perhaps that’s what Levi’s did: They aloof “rebranded” a brace of women’s jeans as a brace of men’s jeans, a ablaze strategy.
I, like Mr. Colbert, cannot blanket my arch about why this is a “tribute” to an ex-girlfriend. Perhaps Colbert is right: maybe the best way to get animus (or pay homage) to an ex-girlfriend: dress like them.
Maybe Levi’s should alpha addition band of men’s jeans that pays accolade to all the bad mothers out there alleged the “Evil Stepmom Jean.” It would accept the dowdy, ample fit and aerial waist of mom jeans.
It’s aloof an abstraction (a ablaze one, if I do say so myself).
