Highwaisted Jeanius

jeaniusEarnest Sewn asks, “Are you a Jean-ius?”

To which I answer, yes, I am a jeanius.

They also want me to show how I would wear the high-waisted jean, so I drew this picture. To me, the new high waisted jean really is best worn as part of the venerated “Canadian Tuxedo” look. To emphasize the redundancy of this classic hoser-ista style, I added superfluous suspenders. I considered including the traditional plaid flannel shirt, but I decided that would look too ubiquitous.

See the full size image here.

If you do vote for me, I could win 3 pairs of these high waisted jeans, and I would wear them a lot. Thanks!

    1. Hi Danielle,
      I tagged you to play ‘8 facts’ which apparently has been going around and around the blog-o-sphere. I can’t believe I said blog-o-sphere. Forgive me. And forgive me for tagging you.

    2. By the way, I voted for your drawing and wrote a review. I do love the way you layered the suspenders over the jacket. Very nice touch.

    3. Thanks Elaine. Back when I last did the meme, it was just 5 things. I’ve dropped the ball on a few tags since then.

    4. Great job, Danielle! And you’d look great in them, too.

    5. Heh, that is funny. Now it has increased to 8. I am glad I did it or else I wouldn’t have gotten to vote on your design today! I read a few other good posts too as a result.

    6. The Jean-ius link has an extra http// in it so it doesn’t work, eh.
