GQ Stated That Boot-Cut Jeans Are Making A Comeback—And The Internet Collectively Said ‘No’ 😂

Clothing trends come and go — and then come back again. Recent years have seen the resurgence of bell bottoms, high-waisted “mom jeans,” and even acid-washed denim. It’s hard to keep up with what old styles are new again.

At the beginning of this week, GQ Magazine made a bold announcement.

At precisely 12 noon (EST) on Monday, GQ tweeted,

“Bootcut jeans are making a comeback”

The magazine claims the trend resurged after designer Demna Gvasalia included boot-cut jeans in Balenciaga’s spring lookbook.

GQ proceeds to flatteringly describe Gvasalia as a:

“master fashion troll, turning wretched, meme-worthy items into grails people clamor to post first on Instagram.”

The boot-cut jean was most popular during the late ’90s, early 2000s.

As opposed to today’s enduringly-popular skinny jeans, boot-cut jeans are fitted from thigh to knee, but then flare out at the bottom to more efficiently accommodate boots — hence the name.

Despite Gvasalia’s confidence, the internet is not feeling the resurgence of the boot-cut.

This is good news only for those who have kept their jeans in storage for the past 10 years.
