Look, I do not go to a ton of events. I think, if you work in any kind of media, you get invitations to a ton of events. You go to some of them because it seems polite. You go to some of them because they will have free canapes. There are maybe four or five a year that you get really excited about going to.
A screening of The Great Gatsby. I was pretty psyched about that. And the Chocolate Show, I’m pretty excited about that every year. The Chocolate Show is probably the most exciting thing that will ever happen to anyone, so there’s that. But, fuck it, the one that is right up there is whenever NYDJ gives away free jeans.
So, mom jeans. That’s what I get excited about. Their jeans are very high waisted, and also have exclusive lift and tuck technology. According to their website:
NYDJ’s exclusive Lift Tuck Technology®, designed to make you look and feel a size smaller. A patented criss-cross panel helps flatten in the front, while lifting and smoothing in the back. It works so well, we recommend that you order a size down from what you normally wear. The rise hits just slightly above the natural waist to provide not only a slimmer silhouette, but also comfort without gapping at the waistband.
There is no gaping at the waistband. I will snag that invitation away from anyone. I would claw someone for that, like a woman on a reality television show.
Look, NYDJ, incidentally, was originally called “Not Your Daughter’s Jeans” which is not a bad name. Because you know what? Mom jeans are excellent. It’s daughter jeans that suck.
