Big Baggy Jesus Is Bringing Baggy Back
Here’s a fashion history lesson for you: when baggy jeans were popular people who didn’t understand made fun of people in them, then skinny jeans got popular and the people who originally didn’t understand baggy jeans had started to wear them and made fun of the skinny jeans, but now those fun-making people are wearing skinny jeans and would probably make fun of someone in baggy jeans.
That’s fashion in a nutshell really isn’t it? It runs in 10-15 year cycles and is pushed forward by outsiders and alternative culture folks who get sick of boring people copying their look.
San Francisco-based denim reseller TJ Marsh has been posting baggy jean inspiration on Instagram as Big Baggy Jesus since March 2016 and amassed a healthy 11.2k followers at time of writing. He’s bringing baggy jeans back because it’s time.
