I read on my Facebook feed today that JNCO Jeans are making a comeback. I never had a pair. Mostly because it seems you need two people to properly fit into a pair. That said, I'm pretty sure any smart phone would fit into the pocket of one of those bad boys....along with a laptop, a refrigerator, and a bag of weed.

Holy crap, I remember selling JNCOs when I worked at the mall in HS and college.

The latest and greatest hype in Japan: the clamshell featurephone is making a come-back, see http://www.cnbc.com/id/102441104
So I totally get it that you don't want to re-invest in an expensive smartphone for just another year of service - you're ready for the future! :D

Thanks for the link. Wouldn't surprise me to see a similar revival stateside. I for one am proud about not upgrading my phone. I feel like I am standing up for something, in a tiny infinitesimal way, standing up to the evil empire and saying "I have enough technology to get by, now get out of my face." It is liberating.

I've been finally watching the Breaking Bad series, which is only a couple years old, and its weird because there are no smartphones anywhere. And a lot of important things happen because people calling and talking on (flip) cell phones, which looks a little odd too.

I'm so un-hip, I confused the game where you remove the little wooden blocks with jeans from the '90s.

I never owned a pair. I stopped wearing jeans entirely around 1994 or 1995.

I'm even more unhip then evidently. I never heard of these jeans. Then again this was in Southern California, not a whole lot of denim being worn. It was shorts like 75% of the time, no joke.

The JNCO fad started in Los Angeles. If you were in high school between 1995 and 1998, you know what JNCO jeans were. When the whole grunge scene started dying out, pretty much every alternative sub-culture kind of took on the JNCO look as a symbol of their rebellious nature. I thought they looked ridiculous, personally. Especially the skateboarding crowd. I have never seen anything as ridiculous as a kid wearing JNCOs trying to grind a hand-rail.

However, I must admit that they had a useful purpose in that it made it extremely difficult for someone who was in authority to find your bag of weed if they were patting you down. Interestingly, back then, I immediately pigeon-holed everyone who wore JNCO jeans as a pot-smoker.

They were more for the hip hop/club crowd for the mid nineties. I may or may not have owned a pair.

I tried a pair on when I was working at the department store. I'm 6'3 and they still dragged halfway across the floor. And I could have put two more of me in there at the same time. Very strange pants.

I can't decide if you'd look better in a lighter or darker green.

Not really. I find jeans to be extremely uncomfortable.

Oh but times have changed mon frere. Gone are the days when you had to beat your jeans with a stick, or back over them repeatedly in the driveway in order to break them in. Now they come pre-beaten. Fabrics are more comfortable too. I think when we were growing up we probably had the same kind of stiff jeans as the prospectors from the gold rush era. Does anybody remember Shrink-to-Fit? JHC, it only took like a century for jeans manufacturers to figure out "Hey, maybe we should pre-wash these things before we sell them."

I disagree. I bought a pair of Tommy Hilfiger pants recently (Tommy Hilfiger makes the most comfortable clothing in the universe). They were pinstripe pants, and they were even made out of 100% cotton. That has comfort written all over it. They were cut in the style of a typical pair of jeans, and I can't stand them. As far as actual comfort goes, they are still Tommy Hilfiger. They are not the most comfortable pair of Tommy Hilfiger pants I own, and they are not the most comfortable pair of pants I own. But the pockets are all messed up. It's a pain in the ass trying to get anything out of my front pocket...like my wallet, phone, or keys. They are out of the question on the golf course.

Going back to a smaller phone. Currently carrying a monstrous Nexus 6. Way too f-ing big. I hate not being able to operate it one-handed (medium sized hands (medium golf glove). Next phone is Nexus 5x, nice and nimble in the hand. Bigger is not always better.
