I really like them, I prefer the look to of the Fred Perry's to my converse chucks, they're sleeker, maybe not as hardy, but a bit more comfortable. Also they make them in several nice colours like royal blue. Wearing a Fred Perry polo in that pic too.

Tom.

The only people who hate on skinny jeans are fat guys who can't fit into them.

Or were through that fad the first time around. I am a pretty lean 152 lbs and 5'11" (31 true waist), and while I don't "hate on" skinny jeans, I think that they are a fad that hit an early peak (i.e. went to the extreme) and won't have the longevity that bootcuts or relaxed fit jeans did. The market is extremely segmented right now, of course, but I think that the mainstream trend (read, affecting pretty much everyone) will die off fairly soon.

5'10" and 130 lbs and exactly the same sentiments.

I don't think tight jeans ever hit the mass market the way bootcuts did. Recently, i mean.

I'm not fat, and I don't like skinny jeans. It's all a matter of proportions and harmony. I have a fairly developped upper body with wider shoulders (by french standards ) and skinny jeans look ridiculous on me (whereas tappered slim designer trousers don't, go figure...).

You are speaking purely on the basis of following fashion. Which is not something that should concern you. I'll continue wearing slim jeans even if they become fashion suicide.

Werd. I think too much is made of slim jeans being "fashion". They've always existed from the early days of denim, they're just making a re-appearance after taking a back seat to loose/boocut denim for so many years.

Everyone is affected by trends, including, (surprise ), people who read and post on a men's fashion forum (which this is). If you are part of a subculture, you are affected by the trends within that subculture, which has a symbiotic relationship with the "mainstream" culture. Unless you live in a cave with no stimuli from society, easy money says that there is some societal force which would compel you to choose not to wear slim jeans.

Hey I'm the only person impervious to marketing, just like everyone else
