I guess if you can’t cuff ’em, shorn ’em?
This spring, ASOS made headlines by shipping customers absurdly long jeans.
In May, the retailer told BuzzFeed that the length of the Super Skinny Stacker Jeans were not a mistake—they were fashion.
“The ASOS Super Skinny Stacker Jeans are a new menswear style which are cut longer than standard length to allow a gathered effect at the ankles,” a spokesperson for ASOS said.
It seems ASOS can’t stop, won’t stop, though. The ASOS Super Skinny Longline Stacker Jeans are still a thing and they’re still taking people by surprise. Yesterday, some customers tweeted their long-ass jeans to the company’s customer service Twitter handle.
The company has no customer service number and seems to run all of its feedback through Twitter and its website—which is unfortunate if all people are doing is making jokes about your product.
Despite all ASOS’s efforts, it seems the style hasn’t taken off. Even a photo on the website shows the extra-long pants styled as shorn.

With the scraps, at least you could make yourself a pair of jorts.
