Why, oh why, are boot­cut flares com­ing back?

The Guardian - G2 - - Passnotes | Shorcuts -

A re­cent ar­ti­cle in GQ claims that boot­cut jeans are back. What ur­gent ques­tion has been asked to which the answer is “boot­cut jeans”? Bleached brows are on cat­walks again, if you fancy look­ing spec­tac­u­larly un­well. Fine. There’s a trend for cloth­ing em­bla­zoned with the Nasa logo, as if col­leagues choos­ing to shoot you into space re­flects well on you. Great. But boot­cut jeans, the type that pud­dle fabric at your an­kles and are so ag­gres­sively Clark­son/ Clap­ton/Carls­berg – we boot­cut these fash­ion atroc­i­ties out of our lives 15 years ago, and it’s just too soon. What are we re­viv­ing next? The Iraq war? The re­ces­sion? Ac­tu­ally, don’t answer that.
