^^^ pocketsquareguy. that's actually quite a nice fit for any jean. i don't know about the so called 'jeans for middle-aged men' or whatnot, being that i'm not really a middle-aged man, but i think the rules still apply for young people as well. that is, buy silhouettes that suit accordingly to your body type. alright, that's a common thing to say. after all, everyone knows that a fat guy can't wear skinny jeans without looking like, well... a fat guy wearing skinny jeans. not good. about wearing skinny jeans on a middle aged man. well it's definately not common, but who says it can't be done? the only reason that we're into this whole paradigm that men should wear straight legged/bootleg jeans when they reach a certain age is merely a product of our own social bias. after all, i'm sure that all the rockstars of age didn't get into their forties and just out of the blue decide that they've gotta change their fashion style. i'm just saying wear whatever the hell you like as long as you look good in it. there's no definitive jean, no definitive shape and no definitive age that requires you to change.
