Then this pair came to our attention.
Called the "high waist double jean", the designer denim is by Natasha Zinko.
Yes, that really is a high AND low waisted top, but the strange-ness doesn't end there.
Listen: Has activewear had its day? The hosts of Mamamia Out Loud think so. Post continues after audio.
There's also the baggy bum and the contrasting light denim stripe down the side.
They cost $875.49 and the worst part? THEY'RE SOLD OUT. Yes, so many people have bought them there is no stock left.
On the bright side, at least we won't be seeing any builder's bums with this low rise version.
It seems we're not the only ones bemused by the design from the Central Saint Martin's graduate.
