It’s probably an understatement to say that GOT7 are a good looking bunch of chaps. Hell, if they can make bucket hats look cool, they can pull off any outfit. Well, almost. That’s because even this great K-pop group can’t pull off the most controversial of all looks in fashion: double denim.
Okay, let’s rewind a bit first.
GOT7 performed their first ever Australian concert in Sydney on August 22, 2019, as part of their Keep Spinning World Tour and the boys showed just why they’re one of the hottest K-pop groups at the moment.
JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and Yugyeom all had the thousands of fans packed into Qudos Bank Arena eating out of their hand from minute one thanks to their intense choreography and willingness to go all in on the performances.
It was a surprise no one pulled a hamstring or strained a vocal chord at how hard they were going over the course of their two and a half hour set.
The septet have gained a reputation for putting on great live shows since their 2014 debut and they’ve only gotten better with age. There wasn’t going to be a major surprise regarding the setlist so GOT7 kept people on their toes with a number of costume changes throughout the concert.
From matching velvet suits and 90s rap-themed outfits to wearing their own merch, the K-pop boy group certainly kept fashion critics on their toes.
But then the double denim came out.
Double denim is a fashion faux pas of the highest order. It may have been cool back in the 90s, but the novelty wore off pretty quickly. What cool that was left in the look had disappeared by the time Britney and Justin wore matching Canadian tuxedos in the early 2000s.
And sadly, not even a group as good as GOT7 can make the look cool again no matter how good their performance was. It’s just too distracting to see so much blue denim on one stage. Hell, an argument can be made that no artist, K-pop or otherwise, could rock double denim.
Plus the mere thought of how hot it would be wearing those outfits while performing is sweat inducing, let alone actually doing it in real life.
The lads clearly had the same thought because they abandoned their jean jackets pretty quickly and normal order was resumed as their performances and banter quickly wiped away any lingering thoughts about double denim for the remainder of the concert.
JB signed off the night by quipping how he didn’t expect Australia to be this cold and he should’ve packed warmer clothes. Next time you come back here with GOT7, keep the denim at home and bring literally anything else you have in your wardrobe.
Hell, wear an entire outfit made of bucket hats because it’ll still be an improvement over the all-denim look.
