Has it really come to this?
I thought we had learned better, but I guess if the 80s came back, the 90s is next. The inside cover of the September 2011 GQ has this pleated gem on the left. They’re not online yet, but I’m sure they’re expensive. Better be selvedge.
Full confession: back in 94 or 95, I had similarly sized RRL jeans that I bought at the Polo Country store. Mine were not pleated, but had external suspender buttons and were dark, but not raw, blue. I miss them sometimes.
