We reported The Great Jeans Apocalypse was officially underway when new designer Thibaut debuted no pants-pants (aka thong jeans) at Tokyo Fashion Week back in October. Understandably, the internet quickly lost its cool over the extremely ripped and deconstructed jeans.
For those who thought the jeans (or lack thereof) were just a runway gimmick, think again: LA-based brand Carmar Denim created their own thong jeans knockoff—and they're already sold-out. Yes, I repeat: a pair of $168 (P8,600) denim seams now has a wait-list of people who want to buy them.
If you're wondering who exactly is buying all these thong jeans and where exactly they're wearing them, you're not alone. But fear not, Carmar has already taken to Instagram to prove the barely-there jeans can be worn totally casually in a multitude of social situations...
