Every so often, the fashion industry gifts the world with a totally unwearable garment — remember sock boots c/o Chanel in 2014? The latest wacky trend to grace the runway: thongs jeans.

Thong. Jeans.

Thibaut, a Japanese designer, presented her latest collection at Amazon Fashion Week in Tokyo, and the most talked-about piece was the brand’s barely there thong jeans.

Take a look for yourself here. Would you wear these IRL?

Essentially thong jeans are a basic pair of denim that have been hacked apart in front and back, leaving a sad fabric skeleton hanging around the waist and making the wearer look like they were just run over by a lawnmower.

Thong jeans certainly aren’t appropriate for the Canadian winter that’s around the corner; the snow and wind will quite literally blow right through them. Though that’s not to say you couldn’t layer a pair of red waffle-knit long johns underneath. Just a thought.

People aren’t shy about voicing their disapproval of these barely there pants:

On a positive note, thong jeans look like a rather simple DIY project. You know, if, for some reason, it feels like a straggly string of material draped off your legs is what you’ve been missing in life. Just grab an old pair of Levi’s, a pair of ultra sharp scissors (or dull ones would give the same kind of look, too) and haphazardly hack away.

This is one trend that hopefully doesn’t move from the runway into mainstream fashion. But if it does, we’re all going to have to start doing more squats.
