Gay jeans: bluejeans that go rainbow as they fade

Chris from Betabrand writes, "Betabrand designer Steven B. Wheeler has discovered the Gay Jean -- more precisely, a denim that slowly but surely fades to reveal rainbow-colored thread within."

How do I know these jeans are really gay? Could it just be a phase? Actually, brand-new Gay Jeans look and act like any other pair of fine five-pocket denims. But as they get older, they can't help showing their true colors — literally! Through normal washing and wearing, their indigo dye will gradually fade away, revealing fabulously colorful yarn.

Can I prevent them from becoming gay by not washing them? This will merely slow the process. It will also have the unintended consequence of repulsing friends and loved ones, regardless of orientation.

If I'm straight, will wearing Gay Jeans make me gay? No more than driving a Toyota will make you Japanese. If you put on a pair of Gay Jeans and begin experiencing gayness, chances are it's because you are gay.

Gay Jeans (Slim-Fit) (Thanks, Chris)
