Terrible Jeans That Prove Denim Has Gone to far.
Jeans were accidentally created when French designers in the 1700s attempted to recreate a thick textile called serge. Instead, they made “serge de Nimes” — now known as denim. (galleries)
This fabric was industrialized when Levi Strauss brought the fabric to the United States in 1853, manufacturing it
into sturdy trousers that would withstand both harsh mining conditions and rugged expeditions into the wild, wild west. Blue jeans were as much the counterculture zeitgeist of the 1960s and 1970s as rock music and anti-war efforts, cementing its status as a fashion staple. (galleries)

At The “cut-off denim insert” is great if you’re “partial to a textural switch-up,” according to the ASOS description. As @rubyetc said in their tweet, the outfit looks like the product of a drunken mishap. You can still get it at ASOS for the perfectly reasonable price of $56. What a steal. https://www.gq.com/gallery/history-of-denim-in-pop-culture https://www.irelandnorthwest.ie/places-to-visit/ /
