that second pic of the jeans rolled ALL the way up definitely does nothing for me, but something like the pic i posted, i do like

Jjr4884, I'm in your camp. I roll my jeans depending on the occasion. The other camp just has a much more conservative approach to fashion.

Reread the comments - all of us were commenting on the second picture with the tight jeans rolled all the way up to show the full  boot.  No one commented on your picture that is similar to the Daniel Craig picture.

I would agree. The rolled up jeans look is good for younger hipsters and women. Every time I see this on men, I think it looks out of place.

True Statement - comments were limited to the second picture.

The second picture IS awful, unless of course you are on broadway. But to be polite, I simply refer to it as an... interesting... execution of the idea.

Concur. While I don't do it myself for a number of reasons, I think it can look just fine. Having said that, if I remove my aesthetic approach and address why I believe most men do it, it isn't out of their own sense of style, it's to showoff their jeans/brag a little/confirm they are on the bleeding edge of street style... something I have little interest in doing.

It's purported that the rolled jean look is an homage to working class men who, donning the boots of their trade and preparing to work in an otherwise less-than-pristine environment, rolled up their pants since they couldn't afford multiple pairs of pants (one short for work, one long for casual). If this is true, the nature of the look is anything but feminine. Having said that, the current patrons of the popped pant leg certainly don't fight the same battle, and most, I believe, do it for the reasons above.

 

Having said alllll of that - wear what you want how you want, don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

Somewhat judgemental comment, no, even considering your last sentence?

ahhh... what threw me off was the "jeans rolled up over the boot".. i took that as "covering" the boot like the pics i posted.  my bad... i also agree that rolling them all the way up is an abomination, looks terrible.

Judgmental, on SF?  Most of us are on the forum precisely because we're critical about style.  Serious and snarky criticisms/commentaries are to be expected.

Some folks are just more fashion foward than others... just like some people like to paint their car orange and put huge ass rims on it. 

 

Personally i think cuffing the jeans for a boot like that is necessary, but obviosly done in that over the top fashion just looks silly.  I think its more of a "look at my boots look look look how high they go!!!"

Concur. And I try to predicate an allowance for people with sense by saying "most" or otherwise alluding to the idea that I am not a sage of all things clothing, just a man with an opinion. And, to put it all in a blanket, I remain grounded in: wear what you want, how you want, and let no one convince you otherwise.
