As one of the most popular manga and anime series in Japan, Eiichiro Oda's pirate adventure "One Piece" has spawned plenty of obscure merchandise. It's a brand that's been used to sell shaving cream, chesty mouse pads and even earned Oda's hometown a scale replica of the series' most prominent pirate ship. It wasn't until today, however, that I knew what the series was still missing: designer jeans with a butt print declaring "I'm gonna be the pirate king!!" from Japanese retailer Cospa.

In addition to its most prominent posterior print, the jeans also sport Thousand Sunny buttons, red stitching, paint smears, a leg print bearing the Straw Hat Pirates' roster, special patches and more. Enterprising fans could probably even cut them into capris to mimic captain Monkey D. Luffy's own look provided they fit in one of the pants' available 30, 32, 34 and 36" waist sizes.

There's clearly a joke about pirate booty to be made here, but to be honest, the idea that someone somewhere will wear these jeans with pride kind of warms my heart. I mean, rap rock bands circa '96 got away with wearing worse. Why should sports bar waitresses have a monopoly on obnoxious and nonsensical butt prints? You know what? Instead of answering that, just look at the pants' many features and draw your own conclusions about fashion.
