The luxury clothing brand Balenciaga is under fire for selling a pair of $1,200 SWEATPANTS with built-in underwear that always show.

They’re made to look like you’ve got boxers on and your pants are sagging, so the top of the boxers are peeking out.  They cost $1,190 at

Some people say it’s cultural appropriation, or downright racist.  Either way, that’s an expensive pair of sweats.
