Please, wont the fashion industry leave jeans alone? Or at least prioritise making jeans that dont dig into your stomach and gape at the back rather than committing horrific crimes against denim?
Now, Y/Project, the same creative types behind the denim jacket with strangely long sleeves, buttless jeans, and jeans that look like theyve been done up wrong, is now selling what they describe as denim panties..
Denim panties are super short denim shorts designed to look like underwear but complete with belt loops and a button fastening in the style of your standard pair of denim.
The product description reads: Denim brief-style shorts in navy. Fading throughout. Mid-rise. Three-pocket styling. Belt-loops at waistband. Copper-tone hardware. Tonal stitching.
On Ssense, the model wears the denim panties with a white shirt and a denim jacket, which is a look, but we suppose you could also layer a pair of tights underneath your set for a tad more coverage.
We dont think these panties are designed to be worn as actual underwear (imagine trying to put clothes on top. Sounds uncomfortable), but at this point in bizarre fashion we truly cant be certain.
Ssense writes: These “brief-style shorts” can be worn under or over pants, meaning theyre far more versatile than what youd traditionally expect from a pair of briefs. Underwear that doesnt need to stay “under there.”
So… they are underwear? Or should you wear underwear under them? Are we really expected to wear three layers on our bottom halves?
Over on Instagram, people have expressed both confusion and outrage.
This def aint it ladies, commented one man.
Chafing is great, said another customer. We dont think they mean it.
