These images in the gallery above are of the Rag & Bone ‘Bondage’ Pant, a pair of pants that have a long rear zipper so that you can adjust their fit on the fly.

When you spend over $250 on a pair of pants (for the record, these Rag & Bone Bondage pants originally retailed for almost $500), you want them to fit well. These embedded zippers ensure that your skinny jeans remain every bit as tight as they should be.

While the Rag & Bone Bondage pants are still exceptionally expensive, it’s only a matter of time before this credit crunch tailoring idea hits apparel in more moderately priced markets.
