Unisex dressing is becoming more popular this season with the release of Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony to Rad Hourani’s diffusion line. New York Magazine’s The Cut came across Cheap Monday’s Tight Fit unisex jeans and decided to put them to the test and see if they could really be flattering on men AND women. While Gap and American Eagle are touting their new lines “Born to Fit” and the Artist jean as being “butt lifting and thigh trimming”, its a bold move for Cheap Monday to release denim designed to work for either sex. According to The Cut, their staffers were impressed by how comfortable, stretchy, and supersoft the Cheap Monday unisex jeans were.
“The jeans were Efron-esque on our male models — a passing (male) editor deemed them “rather feminine” — but both were fans of the fit and feel. One wondered aloud whether his pair could “go missing” when we sent back the rest. Predictably, the women were slightly more critical, yanking at the navel-grazing “Mom jean” waistband. Although the front view was flattering through the hips and thighs, the “deal-breaker” for them was the butt-enveloping back pockets, extending partially down the thigh.”
