There is a good possibility that if you are reading this, you were subjected to the rather unexciting, limited options for jeans in the early 1990`s. Brands like; Bongo, B.U.M, M.U.D.D., and of course who can forget Bugle Boy, ruled the malls and streets when it came to denim. I say limited options in comparison to today’s standards. At the time, I assume we thought we had it made. Upon reflection, we did not!
What was so wrong with them? Let me refer you to this picture of a pair of DJ jeans from the early 90`s that is currently being sold on etsy.com for $39.00
The simplest way I can put it is that they lack any character. They are a very plain bland shade of blue, They do not look form flattering at all. I would really like to comment on them more while a real person wears them, perhaps they would not look so atrocious. One of the big differences we have now seems to be such a variety of cuts to fit different body types and look great. We also have such a visually amazing color palate of the fibers that I dont recall seeing in the 1990
s. Compare to these modern Rock revival jean`s. There is such a variance of blue that it
is very pleasing to the eyes. It looks as though real effort was put into making them. They are very form fitting and great for showing off a woman
s shape. Interestingly enough, form fitting was very popular in the 80s as well. I hope this does not mean we are heading back to baggy. I tend to believe that when something is good, just keep it! We dont need extremely drastic changes just to be fashionable and trendy. Remember Jnco jeans? Take a look at these pictures. Both girls look great from the waist up, but from the waist down, what is going on!
Let me leave you with some photos of 1990`s jeans trends and you can decide.
