I got bootcut jeans for Christmas... - Page 3

Bootcuts, unless worn for functional purposes...as in over workboots @ a construction site, are definitely in the "trendy" and "fashion jeans" category. That said, I own a pair of bootcut Diesels to wear on those special douchy occasions. Works best on slim frame, IMO

Timeless stacked skinny jeans became an anti-trend...to make them "trendy", have them tucked in your favorite pair of Uggs

Anyways whatever, this thread is

No normal person is going to look at a guy wearing some nice fitting bootcut jeans and think he is out of style.

Nordstrom is a reliable source for quality jeans fashion. (10)

How hard is it to sew? As in physically break out a sewing machine, tear the flares out of the jeans, and sew them into a very slim flare?

Damn, I'm starting to feel like Mary Poppins in here today...

Just for those that missed it...

At least a 'very thin flare' can be argued respectably.

A very thin flare can be shrugged off if everything else is good, but it would be hard to argue that it improves the jean over no flare at all. Also I've had to wear boots for a job. I did find wearing slim-straight was more comfortable than skinny jeans, but the handful of times I wore bootcut jeans (which I have since had the flare taken out of) I noticed no improvement in comfort whatsoever over slim-straights. And when I say slim-straight I'm referring to Slim Jims, 514 or even 501 I'd imagine would be ample for all but the absolute chunkiest of work boots. No need to wear flares for "function."

I agree with this

awesome

I buy 507s cheap and pay for the flare to be reduced. My legs are too sturdy for slim jeans and 501s look too "stiff".

It's all cycles. In 5 years when big flairs for jeans are in again you all will be making fun of skinny and straight fits.

I got a pair of RRL Slim Bootcut Jeans and just tapered them. Now they fit better than my old RRL Straight leg Selvage Jeans that I've since flipped on eBay since they stretched out too much
