After years of high-rise jeans taking over women's fashion, low-rise jeans and mini-skirts - reminiscent of the early 2000s - have made a comeback on runways this year.

THANK YOU GOD
 
2021-10-17 11:57:18 AM  
And for the record, this isn't anything new. Things that were popular twenty years ago always make a comeback as the new generation learns about the prior one.

Now, we'll just have to wait for a West Wing reboot.

Wait, you're telling me jeans from another era are making a comeback?  This has never happened before.

Be careful what you wish for, the average American woman isn't built the same way she was back in the year 2000.  You may not have noticed because yoga pants do some serious work when it comes to molding/shaping/hiding.

Low-rise jeans and mini-skirts are unforgiving.

/the men look like shiat too, but you generally don't see them trying to pull off low rise jeans

Yoga pants do zero molding or shaping. They stretch to the shape of the wearer. Denim holds everything in the shape of the denim garment.

It isn't like things fell off a cliff, but everything has been trending upwards for a long time now.

In the 90s, the 60s and 70s were totally en vogue. Austin Powers, flared pants and loud club shirts, polyester, inflatable furniture, lava lamps, the whole thing. I don't see how this is numerically different.

Culturally, it's just sad. Nothing has really happened in the last 20 years.

Women didn't look good in low rise jeans back then, either. It gave almost every woman pancake butt, it looked like they shoved a folded pancake down their pants. It was a terrible time to be alive.

The new ones suck balls. Barely worn and the toes are already fraying.

The old ones? shiat I had brothers hand down to me and my brother and the damn things looked almost good as new.

Also they don't feel nearly as comfortable as they used to be, might be rose tinted glasses. But I always go for the 1460.

Last pair of steel toes took a beating, these ones are just fraying all over.

You realize that the data you posted show a trend of increasing BMI as Americans move from being majority "normal weight" in 2000 to majority overweight in 2014 and that the trend has continued, right?  We are talking the difference between 150 and 200, not a hyperbolic 675lbs.

Correlation != causation, as any scientist with a background in statistics would tell you. It's more likely obesity rises with poverty and income inequality in general, as corn continues to be subsidized and high fat, high simple carb, and high sugar foods are much cheaper than healthier alternatives.

But I suppose chalking it up to stupidity does more to feed your moral superiority, doesn't it?

Coolest thing ever. If you want to use your old phones, rotary or other, this device connects to your old phone(s), and then bluetooth pairs to your cellphone. 

Walk into your home, your cell pairs with the Xlink, and any calls that come in ring through on the old phones. You even get a for-real dialtone when you pick up the handset, and you can indeed dial out, use Siri / Google, etc. etc. etc. 

For extra fun you can power the Xlink with a small inverter and put one in your car and have a for-real old school rotary car phone.

Good luck getting women's jeans in actual denim.  It looks like it, but it's the half-spandex stretchy garbage that wears out in less than 5 years.

So get ready for blue stretchy low rise leggings.
