Not that that's hard to do, Lebon's always been on the verge of tubbydom himself...

Wonderful. Its just starting to take root here although we're doing everything we can to steer people away from it, especially those who shouldn't even consider it in the first place. Sorry but I'm from that generation who's lived through this horror in the 80's and really have no desire to experience it again. Everytime somebody comes in looking for skinny jeans I stick a pair Atelier LaDurance in their face. Works like magic. Still...would love a pair of those Levis stacked skinnies...

On the other hand, super tight jeans decrease your sperm count, so that is more whack than gangbanger loose jeans. All IMO, of course.

honestly, i could use the lowered sperm count. i have 2 kids and dont need any more.

I'm not a bootcut man myself so the skinny jeans trend only leaves me with more choices, of course now that NYT has reported it it is obviously on the wane.

These fitting trends are the sole reason I have stuck with straight-legged jeans my entire jeans-buying life. I have yet to see a season/fashion moment where a pair of Helmut Lang's Classic 5 pocket does not look good.

Silly trends... Feh.

I like an antifit jean, maybe slightly tapered (like the New Standard), maybe a little bootcut (like the Regular Ralph) or a true straight cut (like the RB1). Honestly, I think that everyone, excepting those involved in subcultures with specific dress codes themselves (and these have their own cyclic trends) or truly don't care how they look, follow trends to some degree. That said, you can put your own signature on them all (for me, it's always been a more fitted top and an antifit jean or occasional casual trouser).

Straight leg jeans will never go out of style. However "extra tight" most certainly is a gimmick and will not last long.

I hope the trend ends soon. That's all I'll say.

thought for the day:
  • skinny people tend to wear skinnier jeans than not skinny people
  • skinny jeans apparently result in a lower sperm count for the skinny jean wearer
  • the world is getting fatter

you do the math

Wear what you want, who cares what the New York Times says.

Skinny is better than baggy. Unless you're into degenerate hip-hop culture.

I definitely don't care what's 'in' in an inconsequential country like Sweden, or anywhere else for that matter.

Thanks for the insight, Mr. Adorno.
