Dude, bootcuts look great on tons of people. I love my Olas. I'm skinny as shit, though, and for the most part stick to straight or tapered jeans.
It is my contention that a lot of skinny guys are forced
to look to highend brands to find a pair of jeans that fit right. Bigger guys like you have an easier time picking up mall brands that will fit nicely. Of course, tapered or straight jeans seem to compliment the stick-figured guys, and bootcuts seem to compliment the tree trunk-figured guys. What might lead even more to the 'spazing out' over tapered jeans, however, is that this is a fashion board. As such, higher end labels tend to generate more discussion. These higher end labels will sometimes produce a bootcut model (Nudie, Studio d'Artisan, 5EP, etc.), but will, in general, be more focused on those zany skinny jeans. And thus, people might seem to hype or push skinny jeans, even though they would not look good on you.
