Most of us have been working from home the past year and a half, which means it’s safe to assume we’ve probably all been wearing more sweatpants and leggings than we normally would.

Personally, I’ve come up with a rotating “WFH uniform” which consists of baggy sweatpants Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and leggings on Tuesday and Thursday. Oversized t-shirts or hoodies are a week-long staple. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s been wearing some variation of this.


But as the world begins to slowly open back up as more and more people are becoming vaccinated, we can probably turn our attention back to jeans.

For those who remember, jeans were the wardrobe staple of many people before the pandemic hit. And if you’re like me, you’re slowly starting to get more opportunities to be able to wear them out in public again. I can’t tell you how nice it was to pull on some jeans and go browse a bookstore again the other day.


However, if you happen to come across someone who is wearing a pair of jeans from the brand LEJE, you might find yourself a little confused by the design.

In fact, you might think that you’re hallucinating. But it’s not a hallucination at all. Instead, it’s a cleverly achieved optical illusion that is created through precise construction and stitching.

The South Korean company has managed to create jeans that look like the wearer’s legs are somehow cut in half diagonally. It’s very reminiscent of a glitch in the Matrix. There are serval different ways that they achieve different optical illusions, but the one thing they all have in common is the fact that they all will undoubtedly get double-takes in public.

The LEJL jeans can be pre-ordered through the company’s website.
