Pretty much everyone on the planet owns a pair of jeans, and for good reason. They look great on both men and women, they’re hugely versatile and despite the fact that they’ve been around since the 19th century, we just can’t get enough of them.
That’s why they’re constantly being reinvented – fashion brands can afford to experiment with the classic jeans look because they’re so damn popular.
I mean, there are literally jeans you can buy with a zipper for your butt. Vetements formed a partnership with Levis and launched this pair of “high-distressed jeans” with a zipper spanning the length of the wearer’s buttcrack.
There are jeans with detachable pant legs (I guess some people think it’s practical):
And there are even mud-splattered jeans (yes, people actually buy these):
Of course, the original “experimental jeans” were the ripped jeans which have now pretty much just become a standard pair. People love ripped jeans – it’s a fashion trend that definitely hasn’t waned, despite being around for quite a while.
