    Damn, money for a photoshoot and JNCO jeans in 1998?

    This kid must’ve held all the hands.

        About two months ago I saw a pair of ~15 year old girls wearing OG styled bell bottoms. Not some.new twist, these things were in their full original hideousness.

        As a fifty one year old I keep wondering how many more times my eyes will have to endure this fashion trend.

          Oh man that’s fuckin weird

          In 2024, you can re-use calendars from these years:

          1912, 1940, 1968, and 1996.

          Because in 1912 and 1940 a bunch of people joined the navy for the wars and also put on bell bottoms…

      My son is 15 and loves these jeans so they must be timeless.

        These and bell bottoms are making a comeback and I’m too dad-bodied to fit in mine 😭

        Pour one out for my KikWear

    We had to put duct tape on the bottom after having them for a while, because they’d get all torn up getting caught on skateboard trucks.

      Yeah, I was gonna say, aside from the camera quality, I would have believed this to be a recent picture. Wide, baggy clothes seems to be the current trend among many teen groups.

    JNCO jeans, a chain wallet, hair spiked with gel, t-shirt that hung down to your knees, and heelies (or soap shoes depending on the date) was what I remember of late 90’s/early 2000’s fashion in school.

      Heelys are timeless. I’m my 30s and I use them to grocery shop faster.

    Sometimes, parents resent their kids for having what they wanted for themselves. In this case, the spirit to say “I am awesome.”

    I can’t believe I gave in to wearing these. I didn’t even like them, I just didn’t want to be the only one in my friend group wearing normal jeans.

      They’re truly awful. Never got JNCOs, but grew up during the baggy jeans trend of the 90s and felt pressured in to going along with it. It was nice to become older when the trend reversed and slimmer jeans became the style. Now Gen-Z is saying those look dated, but I’ll never give them up again.

      I loved having “elephant feet” but I only had one pair of pants that i would cycle in so it was always fun.

    You ever take a pair of torn JNCOs and turn them into cutoff shorts? They were like knee length bell bottoms and they were awesome. You could wear your JNCOs in 90°+ weather too!

        I think if you go with their method your nether region would be exposed while sitting down, causing “hanging brain”.

        Dunno the female equivalent, maybe “slippin the flaps”?

          I recommend wearing underwear then. Most people actually do tend to wear underwear even when it isn’t specifically only preventing a view of your testicles. A good pair of underwear can increase your comfort even when completely hidden under your clothes.

            Even the best boxers can slip a nut out. As you get older those things get floppy.

              In that case I specifically recommend boxer briefs, they have the room you need to keep them healthy, but the tight legs necessary to keep them to yourself.
