I wasn’t planning on buying anything as clothing funds are limited at the moment, but I thought a reconnaissance mission was in order. These are some of things I found:
I’m sorry, but WHAT? I thought high-waist jeans were MOM jeans. (Not that there’s anything wrong with mom jeans.) And now they are “super sexy”? Perhaps they are being ironic? Nah, marketing people don’t do irony.
I’m not a big fan of low-rise jeans because muffin-top. However, there is absolutely no call to go back to high-waist jeans. I speak with authority. I wore these things once upon a time (yeah, I’m old). They are not comfortable. Nor do I recall them being particularly sexy, although I generally do not look for “sexy” clothes anyway. Comfortable and flattering is sufficient. I have determined the correct rise for my particular squishy middle, and it is right below the navel. This is comfortable and avoids the dreaded muffin-top. What more can you really ask from a pair of jeans?
And then there was this:
There is a pansy embroidered on the butt. And it’s Gucci. But still, do you think this is accurate? Is that an actual discounted price? They didn’t have the usual MSRP thing above their price, so I don’t know. Would anyone actually pay $500 for a pair of jeans in a discount store? Or anywhere? I suppose there are some rich people out there who might pay that in Beverly Hills or something.
The funny part of the story is, I actually do like the embroidery because I love pansies. If they were going for my usual Winners pant price limit of $25 or less, I might even have tried them on. But alas, if I tried on a pair of $500 pants, something bad would happen in the change room (I’d tear them or something) and then be on the hook to buy them.
As an aside, can jeans manufacturers just stop with the pre-distressed, pre-creased, creatively-bleached denim thing? I want three options only: dark denim, stonewash denim, coloured denim. Thank you.
