To paraphrase Martha Stewart, you by no means know who you’ll stumble upon at Nobu Malibu. In Stewart’s case on Monday night, that likelihood encounter included one Pete “Cute man with painted fingernails” Davidson, who occurred to be sporting a large pair of whiskered, saggy denims.

Today, there’s at all times one thing new occurring with Pete Davidson, and with denim. The thought of an “in” silhouette for denims is extra fluid than ever, and but—when’s the final time you noticed a celeb out within the wild in some actual circa-2003 slouchy denims? It form of takes your breath away, proper? There’s one thing in regards to the sight of Davidson departing the most conspicuous place to wear an outfit in Los Angeles in some sneaker-enveloping denim (which he paired with doubled-up merch from the L.A. deli Uncle Paulie’s) that evokes a youthful Pete, maybe stepping out from the sliding doorways of the Staten Island Mall, say, 15 or 20 years in the past. The identical form of denims you could have been sporting 15, 20 years in the past. After all, these aren't fairly within the typical mall value vary: Pete's stylist Britt Theodora confirmed that his denims are Amiri, and are at the moment on sale at Mr. Porter for $414.

Thom Browne aside, Pete’s at all times had a smooth spot for regressive dressing. He loves plastic beaded jewelry and the form of eyesore streetwear that may make a 14-year-old say “Sick!” However vogue’s ever-steady nostalgia pendulum retains swinging, and possibly it is about time for drop-crotch, wide-legged, streetwear-meets-skater denims you would possibly spot in a 2003 Neptunes video to return again into play. (All threats concerning low-rise denim’s resurrection will need to have a counterpart, no?) Let the again pockets hit the ground.
