Yes, this is real.
"Janties"are really a new fashion trend for people to buy.
In case you haven't heard of them before, they are a high-cut denim "brief-style" shorts.
They basically look like denim underwear.
The designer clothing brand who designed these shorts recommend that you can wear them either under or over your pants.
Some people are not that happy with this trend.
But what's the big deal?
Every generation has it's own twist on denim styles.
No one thought wearing denim on denim was good idea, but the early 2000's still did it.
So let's not be so judgemental of Generation X, maybe this trend will revolutionize fashion.
The shorts are selling for $315 each and are already sold out.
Obviously some people are down with "janties".
