Carmar

At least they have pockets!

May has begun and warm weather finally seems to be here. Time to grab those old jeans out of the closet and cut them off into some shorts. The perfect look for any backyard barbecue.

Or, you could spend $168 on these “jeans” available from Carmar Denim.

The company is billing the jeans as an “Extreme Cut Out Pant” and says they are for those who “dare to bare.” Unfortunately for the clothing company, people seem to feel the jeans are less daring and more idiotic.

“I have an even better name!” one woman wrote on Instagram “It’s called ‘paying a fortune to embarrass yourself in public.'”

Twitter also roasted the “pants.”

Carmar eventually responded to the backlash, saying it doesn’t mind if people have a laugh at the pants. The company also emphasizing that, yes, these jeans are a real thing.

If you’re looking to purchase these jeans, here are some actual selling points straight from the companies website:

  • Relaxed fit
  • Non stretch
  • Full frontal zip

Basically, you get everything but a pair of jeans.

The company also recommends you hand wash them and lay them flat to dry. You know, otherwise, they’re going to get wrinkly and look ridiculous.

As silly as the pants might seem, it’s possible Carmar knows exactly what it was doing. Much like the jeans themselves, the ad campaign was designed to grab people’s attention. Maybe you won’t be buying these particular pants, but if you browse around Carmar’s site for a bit, you might just find something you are interested in. Like jeans that actually cover your legs.
