^ Outstanding debut!
You should post this in the WAYWRN thread. It belongs there more than here.
Yeah, take it from a "sack suit lover" lol. For the longest time, menswear included skin tight pants, all rich men posed with their legs and calves shown, and it's mostly mostly due to the victorian era's backlash against indulgence of fashion that men stopped doing it, and it's only due to that period that legs and calves became linked with femininity becauses dresses and skirts were still worn by women but tights were not by men (and we've never recovered from that link), and thus, due also to the growing association of effeminacy with homosexuality, it's now seen as "unmasculine". In short, that perspective is homophobic in root. gj sir. There's nothing innately masculine or non masculine about tight or non tight trousers. If you don't like it tight, as most people here don't, then don't wear it, just don't claim it to be any more than an arbitrary cultural development. Then again, men wearing trousers instead of skirts and dresses or robes is also an arbitrary ("western") thing, but I guess that won't stop you from slapping labels onto them.
Anyway, here's a lot of brown.
I have no issue with people who prefer aesthetics/interpretations of masculinity that do not allow for tight or skinny trousers, and I don't have issue with people who say they think it looks better, but it's another thing to
a) say it like it's some kind of objectively more masculine aesthetic
b) ignore the fact that if you think the change from skinny tights in Georgian era to the fuller trousers is valid, then surely the current trend of changing from said fuller trousers to skinny jeans could also be valid.
I don't like super tight trousers either, but making it some kind of statement about masculinity is factually incorrect. Tight trousers/pantaloons/tight things and showing off sweet ass calves had one point been considered extremely manly. It isn't any longer, yes I am aware, but what this means is that fuller cuts aren't "innately" more masculine, so yes, you can say tight trousers are now associated as feminine, and you can say that you like fuller trousers, but trying to tack on some psuedo science and say "fuller trousers are naturally more effective at accentuating masculine traits" is not true.
Anyway I don't mean to be tedious, I will tone it down.
That said, and this has nothing to do with lgbt politics, I personally think sack suits look terrible.
