Bootcut jeans are back in fashion, according to GQ Magazine. However, given the internet’s reaction, it seems people aren’t quite ready for this polarising late 90s and early noughties jeans trend.

Earlier this week, GQ Magazine published a feature entitled ‘Boot-cut jeans are making a comeback’, written by Tyler Watamanuk

The piece made a case for the denim style, highlighting how Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia had included the look in the brand’s spring look book.

However, Twitter users were less than impressed, with some suggesting the bootcut trend should be confined to the past.

Others poked fun at music mogul Simon Cowell, a firm fan of the bootcut jean look, and referenced Shaggy from Scooby Doo.

While many reactions to the bootcut jeans were sceptical, some were a little more open-minded. One woman claimed a ‘tailored’ style might still work well.

Another man was just glad his accidental clothing order would finally come to good use.
