What do you think of skinny jeans?

    I'm talking like the levi's 511. Not skin tight but still "skinny jeans".

    Sometimes I like them, but other times I really don't. I don't really know why, but sometimes they don't seem to work on guys. That might just be because of what society is used to and all that. Maybe when I think of skinny jeans I think of some skinny punk-ass teenager. If I imagine an older person, like over 40, wearing skinny jeans, it seems weird and kinda gay. I'm not sure why. I mean, I like the male body so there is no reason tighter pants shouldn't work for them, just like skinny jeans work for women. Women seem to be able to pull off skinny jeans well into their 40s. What gives?

    I'm thinking of just going with a looser fit. My problem is that with most regular or slim fit jeans, the leg opening at the bottom is really super wide. This would be fine, except I like to get longer length jeans and let them stack. With the wider leg opening, they won't stack-- they just drag under your shoes. At least with skinny jeans, the opening was small enough that I could stack the jeans. Is there any way I can remedy this? A way I can stack with a looser fit? Maybe there is some place that has somewhat looser fits but with smaller leg openings?

    It's rare that a guy can pull off the skinny look --- sexy w/o that dreary, anemic 'emo' overtone.

    But even when a guy manages to look good in them I imagine getting those tight things off of him would be too much work....so meh.

    OK. I'm hoping this is going to win me my gay stripes. :-) I actually know the answer to this one.

    What I did was go onto a site like ASOS and searched for either tapered or carrot fit jeans. They still sit on the hips low enough that they feel normal and relaxed, are a bit roomier in the rise for your junk so you don't get that annoying squish/squash which you get with skinny jeans, the thighs are proper-sized so you don't lose circulation to your legs, but from the knee down, the'y're narrow so they fit around your calf and taper down to the ankle and you can still wear proper shoes with them or tuck them into your boots and it's all good.

    Also, they come off a hell of a lot easier when you need them to - you don't have to peel them off or interrupt anything to remove your pants.

    I like the Levi's 511 jean. I also like the J.Crew 484 slim fit. There both not skinny like the super skin tight hipster jeans that look like spandex on your body.

    Levi's does make the super skinny 511 which is way to skinny looking.

    I almost fell over trying to pull them over my quads. No chance in hell they were going on.

    Yeah, but I can't figure out why it is that women can usually pull it off while men usually can't

    I think they look really fucking horrible. I wouldn't dream of wearing them. If not wanting or having to wear skinny jeans means I'm getting old, then there's really nothing to fear after all. Bring it on, I say.

    Do people still actually wear them? If we're talking trends, well, then it's been years since that trend has run its course.

    Have you been living under a rock for those years?
    I guess I shouldn't be too harsh since buying marked-down jeans at Wal-mart probably causes you to be unaware of actual trends.

    He's English. You have absolutely no right to critiscize his knowledge of hat is and isn't fashionable.

    They've been "in" since at least 2008 so he could well be right.

    Totally unrelated, but you look really familiar. I think I've seen you in London somewhere on more than one occasion..

    Yes.
    That's irrelevant to the cut of jeans.

    What FIT is in?

    I'd say the same thing, but I'm not an expert on distinguishing one torso from another. icon_smile.gif
