A Brave Soul From Saskatchewan Wore JNCO Jeans For Seven Days To Find Himself

JNCO took the fashion world by storm in the 90s by making ridiculously baggy jeans with the widest legs ever produced, which made them extra floppy, saggy and often made them look like an ankle length skirt.

With JNCO set to bring big legs back to the jeans scene VICE writer Devin Pacholik decided to see what he missed by not owning a pair of JNCO jeans in the 90s- so he bought a pair and wore them for a week straight.

Devin wore them to the symphony, the mall, while giving an university lecture, while hanging out with friends, while performing at a podcast taping attended by 200 people and out on a date with his wife.

After each event Devin asked people for feedback on his big, bold fashion statement and they told him things like "these are literally the worst things I've ever seen", "I thought you were going to kill me" and "I love them, I have the same ones".  

And through it all Devin learned about trends, unwanted attention and the folly of using too much fabric to make a pair of jeans.
