The world of fashion is ever changing, but throughout shifting norms and trends, one thing has remained constant – the standard size of an inch. However, that appears to have changed in the case of a man named George Riggall.
He ordered a pair of jeans from ASOS in his usual 32-inch inseam, but when they arrived he found they were really, really long, reports Complex.
We're not talking a bit of bunching around the ankles, either.
The pants went so far past the tips of his toes they looked like a pair of flippers.
Riggall shared hilarious photos of his purchase on Twitter, and before long he was getting all sorts of support and advice, like perhaps changing his name to "FLIPPERMAN."
He also learned he was far from alone, as others posted photos of themselves coping with similar ASOS long-pants blues, notes Mashable.
