One of Albo’s voters became the proud new owner of his old True Religion jeans after finding them for sale at an Enmore Op-Shop.
The straight-leg boot-cut fashion statement had the Premier’s name written on the tag, right next to the $349 price tag.
It’s unclear at this time how Mr. Albanese’s once-favorite wardrobe item made its way to the trendy second-hand clothes store, but for Marrickville resident Wanda Harbinger, that part doesn’t. doesn’t matter.
“I was looking for a pair of maternity jeans,” she said.
“And those jeans are perfect. I can put rubber bands on the sides without problem. There so spacious.
For nearly two decades, there hasn’t been a casual public engagement where Albo hasn’t been seen wearing a pair of True Religion jeans. In 2004, he was often seen wearing a True Religion denim jacket to match his jeans.
the lawyer contacted the Prime Minister’s Office for comment and received a short but telling response.
The Prime Minister confirmed he owned the jeans in question, but declined to comment further.
“I have well and truly put my True Religion days behind me,” he said.
“Of course, I used to ride my Razor scooter up to the Red Rattler to see a band. Sure. I was wearing my old True Religion jeans. What you say about the jacket is also true. Watch out for the pun,”
“Obviously I can’t wear them now. First, because I need people to take me seriously because I am the prime minister. Second, because I lost a lot of weight and if I wore them now I would feel like I was walking around in some kind of denim sarong.
“A bad look. But yes, I sometimes miss those days. Now it’s just Country Road and Academy Brand. I became one of those corporate johnny poons you see on the light rail.
