Sure, online shopping comes with many perks, but we all know it also comes with disadvantages, like not being able to really see your purchase until after your card has been charged. Sometimes the fit isn’t right, sometimes the fabric feels off, and sometimes the piece looks nothing like what you saw online, which was definitely the case for George Riggall.
As pointed out by Buzzfeed, the 20-year-old estate agent had purchased a pair of jeans from ASOS; however, once his order had arrived he noticed the legs of the pants were really long—like, really long.
"I opened them and I was stood with my mum and she just started crying with laughter,” Riggall told Buzzfeed. “We couldn’t believe what I’d been sent, I was baffled—I don’t know who would fit these jeans. Probably nobody!"
Soon after, Riggall posted a picture of his purchase on Twitter and reached out to ASOS with a message that read: "Pretty sure these aren't 32" length."
The online store quickly responded to the tweet, insisting the jeans were intentionally elongated so the wearer could comfortably cuff them. Twitter wasn’t buying this excuse, some even pointed out how ridiculous he’d look even with some cuffing.
ASOS later requested Riggall’s order information so they could look into it. But it appears this isn’t the first time this has happened. Other ASOS customers have claimed to have also received insanely long pants, which makes us wonder if the store is just trolling us all.
