Remember in the ’90s when all the “cool kids” were wearing their t-shirts inside-out and backwards, because, well, it was the ’90s? Or when Kris Kross turned their jeans backward, and blew our young minds? Well, that trend is attempting to resurface in the denim world.
Allow us to present to you these awesome or awful (depending on your outlook) inside-out jeans by Ben Taverniti, available at Barneys:
We are so utterly torn over these, because half of our fashion sense is screaming, “Yass! These are The Most Rad!” while the other half is whispering, “You know who else thinks it’s cool to wear their clothes on inside-out? Six-year-olds.”
Now, we have seen this before. According to the 1989 Back to the Future Part II, this is how all the kids wear their jeans in the futuristic year of 2015. So, we’re just a couple years behind the prophecy here.
The blue denim is made in Italy, and come pre-distressed with rips at the knee and lettering on the pocket that spells “To create something new you must first destroy.” They run for $975 US a pair, plus shipping and handling, of course.
Taverniti also has the style in jean shorts, but we don’t see them available at Barney’s just yet:
For whatever reason, the shorts almost seem like less of a commitment. Maybe it’s because denim shorts naturally possess a little more personality, but they seem easier to pull off (figuratively speaking).
If you’re going to pull a pair of these on, you’d better commit. This isn’t the kind of fashion trend you only partially embrace — it’s all or nothing here, and if you’re not careful these jeans will end up wearing you inside-out.
