Loved watching Stranger Things? Well, your world’s about to go “upside down” as a New York-based city retailer, CIE Denims, has invented jeans and short inspired by the Netflix series. The latest denim trend sees your regular old jeans in an inverted manner, that is, the waistband, belt loops and pockets are where the cuffs should be.
Each pair of denim has been named after the characters from popular TV series. While the inverted high-rise jeans are named after ‘Will’, shorts with double back panels are known as ‘El’. There are other jeans known as Lucas, Mike, Nancy and Maxine.
And if that’s not enough, the whopping prices will definitely make you do a double take. While the shorts cost $385, which is approximately 26,370, the pants are priced at $495, that is, 33,905 approximately.
Needless to say, the denim shorts and pants created a lot of buzz on Twitter:

I’m all for innovation but upside-down jean shorts are definitely the devils work. https://t.co/ja63hM8j5J

Speaking of weird denim trends, earlier this year, a Los-Angeles based denim brand named Carmar had produced “extreme cut out” jeans, which barely has any denim parts excepts for seams and pockets!
