Focus groups have harnessed the wisdom of the masses to bring us the greatest offerings of our age -- like the proliferation of cup holders, or that episode of Perfect Strangers where Balki's savagely mugged. For crowd-sourced denim excellence, check out Genetic.
Genetic was started by a USC grad who spent a solid year traveling everywhere from NYC to College Station, TX, polling 20,000+ people about their jeans -- like a census-taker who couldn't care less about your job/1.5 kids/Inuit ancestry. He synthesized his findings into two distinct lines: the "Dominant" (low-slung, button-fly, w/ a straight waist and 1/4-inch of bonus room in the leg) and the "Recessive" (sleeker washes, tighter fit, contoured waistline, and zipper'd fly -- apparently, the minority is braver of penis). Both lines use fabrics from all over (Turkey, Italy, etc), and often incorporate the stretchy, softening material "Elastin" -- which if the infomercials are true also did wonders for Puffy's acne.
Later this month, Genetic'll debut its softest jeans to date: a boot-cut, two-ply-denim/chambray Dominant that feels more like sweatpants -- perfect for sitting comfortably on the couch as you watch a bloodied "Myposian" expat sobbing next to a dumpster.
