J.Crew's vanity sizing has reached a whole new level of crazy. J.Crew Aficionada notes that the retailer just started offering pants in size 000, which can only point to how out of whack the brand's vanity sizing has become. A commenter who had seen the size in-store said that the 000 equaled a 23" waist.

The size is equivalent to a 32 in Italy, a 1 in Japan and a 0 in Australia. What's next, negative numbers?
