GQ Magazine has unintentionally caused outrage online after saying that bootcut jeans will be making a comeback in 2019. "No more than a decade ago, men and women everywhere were wearing the flowy-bottomed jeans like there was no tomorrow." the magazine says.
"But nostalgia works in cycles, so it was only a matter of time until the boot cut made a comeback. Which it did recently when Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia decided to include the style in the brand’s spring lookbook... The flared-out jeans are hard to miss. That, we're pretty sure, is the point."
For a lot of people online, the thought of the flared jeans making a comeback was enough to send them into a spin...
"You spelled 'burn those jeans', wrong." one person wrote.
"Nothing aesthetic or experimental here. Just ugly jeans." another blasted.
Some didn't see the big deal however. "Bootcut jeans are fine, BUT they need to be the right length."
But one person seemingly won the argument when they pointed out the uncanny resemblence between the bootcut jeans and Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.
Are you happy to see the bootcut return?
