And so the pendulum swings...

...from this (the "Brazilian" jean with the 1" zipper):

...to this:


Friends, I don't even know how to process that picture. What is that, a 16-inch rise? Any higher and it should come with underwire support. Good lord above, you'd be spending the first 5 minutes of your bathroom break just getting the zipper down. And those are some deep pockets. No need to fold your dollar bills.

No wonder I can't find a @$#! pair of jeans that fits.

(If you know where I can buy decent-looking jeans with a 36" inseam and 9" rise, I beg of you, respond.)

De-lurking to say something doesn't look right. I will confess, I was happy to see higher waists making a comeback. That photo makes me think I need to reconsider or at the very least, postpone the celebration.

By the way...I still haven't recovered from the "pendulum swing" from the moon cup discussion. It is forever ingrained.

Whacky stuff like this is why I tend to prefer men's jeans. I mean, you get to choose cut (which tells you roughly where the rise will be, length, and waist. Why the hell aren't our jeans like this?

Oh and by the way, tag.

Ange, you're a doll!!

*comes back*

Get this: they don't make them in tall sizes. They make ALL sorts of low-rise jeans with long and x-long inseams, but not the high-rise ones. Go figure. *pouts*
