Manchester United’s Premier League title hopes may be fading, but a first final under Erik ten Hag is now in sight.

The Going Out Top, the low-rise jeans, all of it has some serious body-image baggage attached to it. *Extremely Carrie Bradshaw voice* I can’t help but wonder: will the return of low-rise jeans also command the relentless pursuit of “abs” that accompanied it the last time?
