Skinny Jeans Yes/no?

post #1 of 87
Thread Starter 
So do you people think skinny jeans look good on guys? I personally think they look odd - like chicken feet - and prefer baggy jeans. Is there anyway to add a poll?

Personally, I cant wear them with a 34 waist, but still I rarely think they look good even on guys that wear a size 28.

I do think it looks odd, I like jeans to have a little break in them and the painted on look doesn't do it for me.

I prefer slim/straight fit jeans like APC new standards but I have nothing against skinny jeans however denim leggings look stupid on every male I see them on.

it depends on your definition of "skinny"

I look like a great Roman emperor when I wear skinny jeans. No lie.

This is true for me as well.

They almost always make anyone look rediculous.

I should have learned to avoid threads like this by now. Some of you guys are infuriatingly boring.

Most people can't pull them off, but that's true with lots of things.

I think it also depends on what you mean by "skinny". The standard, at least in US, seems to be bootcut or baggy jeans, at least among the general population. A skinny jean, to me, are those horrible torture pants you sometimes see kids on skateboards wearing; I'm aware, however, that, to some people, a skinny jean is anything that flatters the figure.

For me, I prefer a slimmer, straight cut. Skinny jeans - the super-tight variety - scream youthfulness and rebellion; they stand out, they make a statement, and it's not a very subtle one. For some people, that's fine - that's what they want, or what they like. They can pull it off. But, I don't think most people can.

What is "skinny?" Are we calling 19cm skinny? Some (98% of US) would. I wouldn't, if they are sized correctly. What about new cure?

I was under the impression that 19cm is based on the new cure. Have I been mislead?

Based on the cure, predecessor to new cure. Not certain though. Need fashion historian input here.
