Attention all Fort Hays State University males! Are your jeans cramping your style, and your manhood?
The Hot Child, otherwise known as “T.H.C.” is an up and coming men’s clothing brand that is turning heads with its “anatomically designed” jean, which keeps a man’s junk in mind.
The Hot Child Junk Jean, as they call it, features a “rounded gusset underneath the crotch so that a man’s anatomy will fall forward into the contour naturally, and not be forced to either side,” according to their website.
Complete with a copper 5-button codpiece fly, the T.H.C.s’ Junk Jean has a signature design that is made for men with the confidence to stand out.
Currently available in their signature indigo blue wash, the T.H.C.s’ Junk Jean runs true to size, and will cost you $149. While some may argue that the jeans are overpriced, the purchaser does get more than just a pair of jeans. With each pair of jeans purchased, a baby tree is planted in their name.
Also, included is a 2012 commemorative token, which is placed in a secret compartment for customers to locate.
This simple and overdue concept has taken 24-year-old creator, Octavio Marc David Silva, over six years to perfect.
A recent graduate of the New York Acting for Film Academy, Silva was inspired by accident when he got his “you know what” caught in his zipper. Much like in the scene from “There’s Something About Mary”. However, Silva was not acting in this instance.
After this traumatizing moment, Silva decided to act and create what he considers to be “the first jeans made for a man.”
“It allows them to have some freedom of movement, and the only way I can really compare it is to having a comfortable bra-it’s the same for a man having a comfortable pair of jeans.” Silva’s mother, Catherine Williams, told The Daily Lot.
So, will we begin to see these jeans on Fort Hays State University students?
With its distinctive design, students seem to be somewhat apprehensive about the jeans.
“I guess technically it’s a smart idea, and probably effective, but I’d never wear them,” Devin Schmidt, Hays senior, said.
“I’m willing to sacrifice comfort over looks.”
“I’m not sure if I’d personally wear them.” LaQuan Johnson, Colorado Springs, Colo, junior, said. “Whatever looks different, people tend to hate, and then eventually appreciate.”
So, give it some time, and we will possibly see more and more men rocking these one-of-a-kind jeans. Love it or hate it, the “bad-a** brand” will continue to design clothes for fashion-forward males who have the balls to be different.
