Whether we like it or not, the fashion industry tells us what’s in style. And many do not like that, according to GQ magazine, bootcut jeans are “making a comeback” this winter.

It seems lots of folks are unenthusiastic about the early-2000s jean trend coming back around. Naturally, they expressed their dissatisfaction on Twitter.

Even the model posing in the jeans doesn’t look too psyched.

Twitter user @Lexilo asserted the pants in question weren’t bootcut jeans at all.

And one person asked if the post was tweeted by boot cut jeans.

Twitter says a resounding “no.”
