New cultural low: $1,870 for a pair of sodomy jeans

A company called Vetements is selling a pair of jeans for $1,870.

What’s so special about the jeans?

The jeans are Vetements x Levi’s capsule collection, featuring a zipper that runs from the front waist, all the way down to the crotch, then up the back between the wearer’s butt cheeks to the back waist.

Just so you know what Vetements intends the butt-zipper jeans for, here’s a pic:

The sodomy jeans also comes in a hot pants version, which sells for $1090:

Vetements is a French clothing and footwear brand co-founded in 2009 by fashion designer Demna Gvasalia.

Born in the former Soviet republic of Georgia in the Caucasus, 36-year-old Gvasalia is Vetements’ head designer and also the creative director of French fashion house Balenciaga. According to an interview in Vogue Italia, Gvasalia spent his childhood in the Soviet Union with his “half-French Jewish grandmother”. A 2015 article in the LGBT Out magazine says “Vêtements made headlines last year when Kanye West and Jared Leto wore both spotted on the front row at his show, which was held in a Paris gay sex club, Le Dépōt.”

One thousand eight hundred and seventy dollars for a pair of jeans with a zipper in the crotch and riding up between the butt cheeks must be very uncomfortable to wear. But in an interview with the New York Times in October 2015, Gvasalia actually said, without a sense of irony or self-awareness, that “I’m driven by making clothes both wearable and financially accessible, fashion that has a place in the real world.”

Update (April 16, 2017):

Vetements’ sodomy jeans/hot pants are manufactured “in collaboration” with Levi’s. Why Levi Strauss would lend its long-established name and reputation to those jeans says something about the company.

    • Amen, and that dear truckjunkie, is why I now term it Bizarro New World Disorder, as that is what it truly is. This whole imbecility is so densely stupid I refuse to waste time on a comment, per se, as it’s enough to agree w/all of you like-minded souls. And you’re right about the ‘ass-backwards’ humour of it all; one might even go so far as to say “The more, the derrière!”

    • Good, as it should be! Any pain suffered by fools using this during sexual encounters is God’s way of saying “Schmendrick!! How many times have I told you: the clothes come OFF, du nebbischbe schlepp fuss!!”

  6. What? No back pockets. Well for these freaks perhaps the pocket is behind the back zipper.

  8. Two thoughts:
    1) Kanye West in a gay Paris sex club… ‘nuf said
    2) Why not just wear a dress, and save a bunch of money?
    Answer: Because they want to display their depravity.

  9. This stuff, schlockifying young women’s fashions out of ethnic hatred and “transgressing the boundaries” as a means of insulting Christians, is getting so buffoonish in its desperation that the outrage is on their part for being laughed at, even by young people on sites like vigilantcitizen. More and more young people see a dirty little pervert like this Gemna for what he is, a pied piper of sexual enslavement making them ripe for political and economic exploitation.

    None of this is superficially newsworthy since he probably won’t sell enough of these jeans to cover his costs, but what is newsworthy is the collusion between perverts like Gemna and the media owners in Europe and America who partner with him in relentless subversion of everything decent and beautiful.

    • It’s curious that my two youngest employees [20 yrs] while not traditional Christians nor followers of any sect are spiritually minded and believe Christ was the One in Whom God first implemented all His Glory. They both understand the twisted economics and perversions of ALL truths and don’t fall for satanic [I refuse to show any honour to that negativity] distractions; they’ve seen some HS ‘friends’ become crippled or unable to earn a living due to drugs, so they stay away from that as well. Yes they smoke some mj, but it’s pretty low-key, as getting to work next day is crucial!

      They’re not racist nor do they try to convert others to their ways of thinking. They know most people their age are caught in fashion BS they can’t afford it [& wouldn’t buy into it if they could] nor do they want flashy crapola in their lives. One had no father after age 10 and the other has a model father who tends his family as his flock.

      It’s very hard to see how young ones will evolve, yet it seems beyond the pale to me that –except for 1% of über-rich youth– any of the 99% could be attracted to this mindless perversity.

  10. He is not a designer. He is a pervert. He would do well to invest in some safety underwear for those torture pants.
    Last year I saw one of the Levi Strauss company officers interviewed and he said if you just wore your jeans in every day life and not in dirty situations, you only need to wash them about once a year. In this case, I can’t even imagine.

  11. Well, anyone who would buy and wear these rags is more indecent than the man who designed them.

  13. From the Spring/Summer 2017 men’s shows in Paris, Balenciaga creative director (and Vetements mastermind) Demna Gvasalia showed his first menswear collection for the Paris-based design house. See the collection in its entirety below … 😂

    • Those are some of the ugliest clothes I have ever seen. Over the top shoulder pads, pants too short, mismatched boots and ugly too thin models with terrible haircuts.
      It was like they purposely tried to find the wrong size for them to wear.

  14. First I’ve heard of these jeans. Wow Levi Strauss, anything for a buck. Sinking, sinking, sinking into the depravity. Looking for the firm bottom. Society may finally rise from there.

  15. UPDATE:
    After writing to Levis I have had two responses and it seems to be working it’s way through the ranks.
    The last contact was Bobby Kemp, Customer Service 1-866-860-8907
    I was assured he was sending the concerns to the those in charge.
    We shall see.

  16. These kinds of pants have been around forever. Just not for gay mens reasons ,but they were found for women in stores that sell sex toys, clothing for strippers. There goes his price tag.

    The only thing “new” about those pants is the name, pants with that kind of all around zipper have been around at least since the early 1980’s. I remember seeing girls wearing them back in my high school days, they are nothing new but I don’t remember them being called “sodomy jeans”.
