If you were alive during the 90s – and old enough to actually remember it – you may recall the terrible trend for cartoon-print jeans. Or, of course, you may have successfully managed to erase this memory from your mind, due to the sheer trauma of it. God knows, we’ve tried to. We may even have succeeded, too, if it wasn’t for the appearance of these “hilarious” jeans on our radar early this week.
In addition to the high-waited style and dated stone wash, these also come with what looks like the words “BAM!” – although, honestly, it looks more like “PAM” to us. Who IS “Pam”? – and “WAOO!” printed on the leg. WE KNOW. Why would you want to walk around with the word “WAOO!” on your leg? What does it even mean?
We didn’t go back to 1992 to find these, you see. No, we just went to Yoox.com, where we found them hiding in the denim department. This is about as bad as it gets, folks. Seriously, your Chief of Police did a LOT of the bad 90s trends. A LOT of them. But even she wouldn’t touch the cartoon jeans if you’d paid her. And where The Fashion Police are from, the cartoon in question was normally The Flintstones. No, we’re not joking. You’d get Fred on one leg and Barney on the other, or some other nonsense. We have no idea why. What was it about The Flinstones that made some designer think, “OMG, they totes need to be on jeans!” We don’t know, but we do know we never looked at those wacky cavemen the same way again, and we never forgave them. Fred and Barney, you are DEAD TO US, seriously.
Anyway, like we said, these aren’t from the 90s, they’re from RIGHT NOW, which means you can rush out and buy them. You’ll need £49, and you’ll need to click here to do it. What are you waiting for?
