Yves Saint-Laurent famously said that he wished he had invented blue jeans, dubbing them “the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant” fashion staples of them all.

It turns out everyone is lusting after Topshop’s Panel Straight Leg Jeans – which recently went on sale for the bargain price of just £10.
There’s just one problem: the denims you’ve been dreaming about have completely sold out.
