If you do not know what JNCO Jeans are, chances are you didn’t graduate in 1996 or had your wallet on a chain, and God bless you child. No Offense to anyone who graduated in 1996. JNCO Jeans are pants with oversized legs that looked like a human put in some type of cheat code to make their bodies look like they have not missed a leg day in the past 22 years.
Another sign of the nu-metal revival? No, it’s not that new Coal Chamber album. The popular fashion choice of any nu-metal fan is gearing up for a relaunch: JNCO jeans are coming back!
The Fader reports:
JNCO, the wide-leg jean label synonymous with ’90s fashion, has received a cash infusion from a Chinese investor to relaunch in 2015. WWD reports the comeback will be spearheaded by Andrew Jacouvou, president and CEO of Guotai Litian, and will consist of three capsules: a core collection, a fashion collection, and a heritage range. According to WWD, “The core collection features traditional styles including a knit jean with a slouchy fit; the fashion group has joggers with zip bottoms and a drawstring waist, and the heritage collection offers leg openings of 20 inches and 23 inches, with high waists. All of the product will feature JNCO’s crown logo.”
The compnay hopes to introduce a whole new line of consumers to their
walking floor mops jeans. Full disclosure: as a child of the 90s, I did own a pair of JNCOs in high school, and as somebody who was far past 6′ tall even in high school, they were a godsend because they were the first pair of jeans I wore that fit comfortably and loose. With that said, I think I’ll pass on this revival.
Will you buy a pair once they’re up for a sale? Looks like an official website is up, but no products yet.
JNCO, short for 'Judge None Choose One', is a Los Angeles, California-based clothing company specializing in boys' and men's jeans. It was founded in 1985 by Moroccan-born, French-raised brothers Jacques Yaakov Revah and Haim Milo Revah. The brand gained recognition in the 1990s with its boys' ultra-wide straight legged denim jeans featuring elaborate pocket logos and a unique street look. The brothers commissioned a local LA graffiti artist Joseph Montalvo, aka Nuke, to design the brand's logo. This street look was popularized throughout the 90s starting in Los Angeles and working its way through the United States. JNCO also manufactures T-shirts, khaki pants and other clothing articles for men and women. Unlike similar California based apparel manufacturers, JNCO manufactured most of its products in the United States, mainly at S.M.J. American Manufacturing Co., a 200,000-square-foot (19,000 m2) operation also owned by Milo and Jacques Revah.
In February 2018, it was announced that JNCO was to cease production and liquidate its inventory. It was later clarified that this applied to the then-current licensee and that the brand would continue under new management.
In June 2019, the brand was relaunched, along with a brand new site.
After JNCOs grew in popularity, department store chains such as Kohl's and J. C. Penney as well as mall retail stores such as Tops and Bottoms began to carry them. Other stores selling JNCOs were Gadzooks and Pacific Sunwear.
JNCO jeans were produced in a variety of styles and lines, ranging from ultra-wide jeans with leg openings greater than 50 inches (1,300 mm) to more conservatively-cut styles. Some were so large that younger children often had to sit down while putting them on. After reaching the height of its popularity within the subcultures and becoming more mainstream, JNCOs were known for featuring superfluously large back pockets with graffiti-like inspired artwork embroidery that became more cartoonish as the 1990s ended including flaming skulls and the 'JNCO Crown' (previously the majority of styles only had a relatively small stylized 'J'). Some names of JNCO styles included Mammoths, Crime Scenes, FlameHead (geared for kids and teens), Mad Scientists, Buddha, Tribals and Rhinos, Twin Cannons, and Kangaroos, which had 34-inch (860 mm) leg openings and extremely large back pockets, featured embroidery of a kangaroo with boxing gloves above the right rear pocket.
Current status of the company
After 1998 peak sales of $186.9 million, sales halved in 1999. In the 2000s, the brothers closed the main factory.On February 15, 2018, JNCO announced the shutdown and closing of their company via their website, bringing an end to production & the liquidation of all inventory. A clarification was posted on the company's blog March 1, 2018, stating that, 'The current license for JNCO is being terminated but JNCO is not going out of business and sales will continue under new management.'
