someone get this guy some apcs.

I don't mind washed out jeans if the cut, texture and wear looks cool... they can be 90's retro without looking like Jerry Seinfeld... it has everything to do with the cut to me. in fact my mother got my father some dark Levi's for X-Mas because she was fed up with this "dad jeans"... she likes them but they look the same to me, just darker! lol8[1].gif

The fit and the wash I think.  Monochromatic faded blue (no distressing) is hard to pull off without a dad-jean effect, IMHO.

It's more the fit. Just like how MOM jeans are about the top block seemingly engulfing half of the woman's torso and not the wash of those jeans.

Yup, definitely both fit and wash.

Missoni/balenthiaga/clarks.  Been trying to figure out how to do the ugly sweater thing.

Jet?

Nothing (in theory) wrong with light wash jeans, but to hear "Well, XYZ is doing it this/last season ergo I accept and like it, too" is just so fucking laughable.

That is a good example on the left, but TWorksheets' fit doesn't look like the posted examples to me. I'm just not seeing the comparison other than the similar wash.

edit: Seinfeld sneaker link is awesome. I'd totally love that collection today.

I can't speak for others, but my problem with washed jeans was that the washes generally looked terrible. I don't doubt some people are burned out on raw indigo denim, but we're seeing more acceptance of washed denim now because several brands are finally releasing good looking washes.

I don't know, to me dad jeans always are jeans with really a long rise and give you somewhat of a mangina.

this. Also there are people doing better light wash, if that is what you are after. The stonewash on those is dead giveaway early 90s.
