Alternate headline:

Loser parents have "severely stupid" kids.

Ever heard of Goodwill or Salvation Army?

Save $40.

I think I'm going to cry.

/here all week, folks!

Slow news day.

Wow...fashion just gets dumber and dumber.

"In 2003, the bohemian look became all the rage with teenagers eager to wear jeans featuring spray-painted stains of grass, dirt, and feces."
I dont remember any feces pants in 2003. Sounds hot though.
 
2004-02-15 05:54:37 PM
I'd like to think that was a parody...frightening.

LOL feces

Levis plans to bring their new jeans to shelves along with a new ad-campaign, featuring beautiful people relishing in sense of individuality their new jeans grant them. One commercial reads I like to think Im on my own. It now turns out I am, just like these jeans.

Because you are unique and special, just like everyone else.
 
2004-02-15 05:55:29 PM
Is that like recessive jeans?

...

Manny on the drums, everybody!
 
2004-02-15 05:56:29 PM
Hmmm.... Is this a little like customizing your ringtones to "fit your personality" ?!

"In 2003, the bohemian look became all the rage with teenagers eager to wear jeans featuring spray-painted stains of grass, dirt, and feces."

When I was a kid we rolled in all that instead of spraying it on! It's 2004, time to move on to something equally asinine.

Executives hope that they can keep with fashion trends, which have recently dictated more emotionally complex apparel.




"Because everybody knows depressing teenagers is like shooting fish in a barrel."
 
2004-02-15 05:58:00 PM
Isn't that in keeping with Levi's idea of being an individual? "Be and individual, like 50 million other individuals by wearing pants like the pants at 50 different other companies."

Remember the jingle? "Fall in to the CRAP."
 
2004-02-15 05:58:50 PM
"severely distressed" jeans?

what's next?

"starting to painc" jeans?

"suicidally depressed" jeans?

This trend of anthropomorphising our clothing in such a negative way (perhaps, a negative fashion?) can only result in disaster, our shirts and pants losing the will to live and departing us for good.

i worked in landscaping, i still have allot of the denim pants i had back then. these things are so worn in. not the cheap levis either, these things came from an army/navy store.

got a few hemp jeans too, man those things were scratchy and itchy as hell. but after a year they are still 100% hole free (except acid splashes from battery acid).

i don't understand the idea of buying those things. i see a chick with a hot bod and tight ass and see 'pre worn' fades on the ass and thighs and think to myself: there's no way this chick got that by sitting on cement for 8 hours a day.

dunno maybe i'm getting old, eh?
 
2004-02-15 05:59:41 PM
Just as long as the 80's parachute pants don't come back into vogue, I'm cool.

And what the hell is the deal with those pants that were shot up with bullet holes a few years back???

STUPID.
 
2004-02-15 05:59:42 PM
Seriously distressed?

 
2004-02-15 06:00:09 PM
why is it that every time i try to add a submission, it tells me Adding item to submission queue... and it does nothing??? what am i doing wrong???
 
2004-02-15 06:01:19 PM
To hell with jeans that fit your personality. How about jeans that at least fit your ass??? What the hell is wrong with these people?
 
2004-02-15 06:02:11 PM
I think what says at the bottom of the page says it all.
 
2004-02-15 06:03:23 PM
Whatever happened to those Lee commercials they used to show as previews in front of movies? Those were great. Buddy Lee, Can't bust'em.

 
2004-02-15 06:03:29 PM
Your jeans want Prozac.

/got nuthin
 
2004-02-15 06:03:46 PM
I did have the sneaking suspicion my walmart jeans were happier than me, maybe they didn't have enough feces..
 
2004-02-15 06:03:53 PM
Is bedhead a source of...?

Nostalgia
Frustration
Love
Identity
Narcissism

And WTF is that at the left of the page? I thought it was a source of sleeping in a bed.
 
2004-02-15 06:03:59 PM
Emotionally complex apparel? Do I get a cookie with that?
 
2004-02-15 06:05:56 PM
Rye_ -

Emotionally complex apparel = One free psychiatric consultation with every pair sold.
 
2004-02-15 06:06:33 PM
Maybe I misunderstand you, cheesehead_30, but just 'cause it got added to the summission cue doesn't mean it's been accepted as a link to the main page.

It'll take wit, luck or $5.00 a month to see your headline in lights, bub.
 
2004-02-15 06:07:55 PM
It's a parody, you people. Sheesh.

"Emotionally complex apparel = One free psychiatric consultation with every pair sold."

I just need a hug.
 
2004-02-15 06:08:49 PM
I wear ripped clown pants with blood stains when i'm in an "emotionally complex apparel" mood.
 
2004-02-15 06:11:48 PM
Just what we need, more pseudo-depression marketing to make the youth of today feel more depressed and opressed than they already think they are. Why don't jeans have styles like "super cool," "awesome wear," "happy day," or "la vida loca?" Something to snap these damn impressionable, common-sense lacking kids out of their dream lands of depression and over-emotion. In my day, a good pair of jeans was one you could run in, rough up, wear out, and would keep coming back for more. They got the "worn" look by actually wearing them. Imagine that, no instant gratification for your jean-style desires.
 
2004-02-15 06:11:53 PM
...which have recently dictated more emotionally complex apparel.

Undoubtedly a typo. Should read, "more emotionally and developmentally disabled apparel."
 
2004-02-15 06:13:36 PM
if ever a piece deserved the "Dumbass" tag...
 
2004-02-15 06:14:47 PM
Whoa. This site's almost as good as BBSpot. It's as if someone took the most craptacular parody/satire they could think of, and put it in a blender.
 
2004-02-15 06:24:04 PM
If jeans only look good when they're worn out then methinks there's something wrong with this type of clothing.
 
2004-02-15 06:26:01 PM
Actually, truly, my favorite shot of me and my ex is after a day of innoculating cows -- we had levis on, she had a cowboy hat on, and we were covered in cowshiat. We look great together!


/Valentine's day sucks.
 
2004-02-15 06:26:05 PM
Hmm, and here I was just today yelling at my wife for wearing old worn-out jeans with a huge hole at the knee out of the house. I thought she looked like some reject from a 1980's brat pack movie, but I guess she's justy very stylish and ahead of the 2004 fashions. "Honey, don't go outside with those faded pants, people will think we're poor." rofl.
 
2004-02-15 06:28:48 PM
Someone say feces?

"they closed down to school today"
"why?"
"there were feces all over the floor"
"whats feces?"
"baby mice"
"awww how cute"
 
2004-02-15 06:29:15 PM
guys.. its a satire. get over it.
 
2004-02-15 06:29:26 PM
I used to work at the Gap, where they label the jeans by how they make you look...

...my sister needs some "seriously distressed" jeans
 
2004-02-15 06:33:08 PM
Took me a while to realize it was a satire because it was so incredibly lame and unfunny.
 
2004-02-15 06:33:08 PM
Well, I think a company should have jeans called "the mud and the blood and the beer". The new Johnny Cash line of fashion.
 
2004-02-15 06:35:09 PM
Note - Every guy needs a pair of Gap "Low Rise Boot Fit" Jeans.

I damn near won't take the things off, it's like a trophy case for your package.

And they did their job well last night, I thought I was gonna have to spend valentine's day alone.

/Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
 
2004-02-15 06:35:33 PM
angelfish: "Took me a while to realize it was a satire because it was so incredibly lame and unfunny."

I thought it was real too just because I've seen pre-stained jeans sold in stores. So it didn't seem so far-fetched to me.

If Levi wants to take advantage of dumb kids paying way too much money for jeans that look like they came out of a landfill, I say more power to 'em.

Hey, for $100, I'll take your jeans down to the range and fill them with shotgun holes.
 
2004-02-15 06:37:55 PM
And on a final note...

ToremeNTed... that's gooooood

/Bwahahahahahahahahaha

When I was in high school some friends and I convinced this one special ed kid that the best way to get ink out of his new jeans was to use lighter fluid and an open flame. Meanness ensued.

Anti-fashion has been the "new" fashion for quite a long time. I'm so anti-cool I'm cool.

A friend of mine bought a pair of designer jeans that were "pre-dirtied", for like $150. I about slapped him. People are so farking stupid.
