Time to learn how to actually use that camera you insisted on buying in high school
Clear plastic jeans

For moms with knee tats?? WTF?

I suppose they are for moms who have trouble getting their toes into the pant leg so that they make it to the bottom cuff without poking thru prematurely after a night of heavy drinking.

…trip proof clear knee mom jeans.

Huh. One could wear those on sunny days and get some really weird tan lines.


#4

Moms these days…


#5

I’m laughing and crying at the same time.

Per that photo, I never knew that “Olive Oyl right out of the shower” is what it’d take to get me to buy jeans with transparent knee panels, but marketing’s a magical thing.


#7

I had the opposite reaction. She is beautiful and those still look bad even on her. I think the concept could work. But something about the execution of these jeans just doesn’t seem right.


#8

My jeans always seem to wear out on the knees. So really, they’re doing me a favor to remove that excess, soon-to-be-bare denim and replace it with…um…plastic?


#9

Hollywood had a similar idea 35 years ago…http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083099/

There’s a way to work a “knee jerk” comment around this, I just know it. Unfortunately the change to DST has scrambled my brain too much to compose it.


#11

What about people whose jeans wear out in the crotch first?


#12

In all my years on this earth, I swear that my knees have always been unnaturally dry. These jeans should clear that up and give me permanently sweaty knees, and I can call my life complete.


#13

There probably already exist jeans with a crotch window, but I sure as fuck ain’t lookin’ that up.


#14

There’s something wrong with me. My strongest objection to these jeans involve the high waist.


#15

Designer’s like “okay, it looks disturbing enough, but will it crack into sharp and curled fragments? Fantastic.”


#16

I find it hard to believe that plastic will be as durable as those iron on patches we used to get down at the lingering, run down, five and dime.


#17

I’m looking up crotch window jeans, because that’s the default state with crotch window jeans.


#18

I had a dim memory of seeing a trailer for that, but I wasn’t sure whether it was real, or something from Kentucky Fried Movie…


#19

I wanna say probably not with a plastic crotch window, but hell this is the internet, that probably exists too.


#20

I never knew that having plastic stuck to my legs as soon as I sweat even a little bit was the feel of the future.
