Brooke Shields Still Fits Into Her Calvin Jeans, Circa 1980—And You?

Apparently, Brooke Shields recently tried on the jeans she wore in her famous 1980 Calvin Klein commercial. Yup, the very same ones she wore when she was 15 years old. Here’s what she said:

“My mom kept those jeans, she kept everything. I just found two pairs of those jeans … They didn’t look pretty, but they fit! I got those suckers zipped back up.”

Pretty impressive. Do you have any clothes like this laying around that you still fit into? Does it gross you out or make you proud? After the jump, find out what items Frisky staffers still squeeze themselves into. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

Petit Bateau Sizes Its Clothes By “Years,” Stops At Age 18/20

French clothing company Petit Bateau is famous for their adorable children’s clothing and mastery of the marinière striped shirt.

One of my guy friends didn’t even know we have random number sizes (2, 4, 6, 8, etc.) instead of measurement-based ones (waist 30, length 34) for most of our clothes. Even so, this just shows that we are way harder on ourselves than we are when we judge others. [Fabulous Mag] Keep reading »
