Seriously, when are they gonna starting marketing jeans to guys that are cut like girls?
I've grown to hate guys jeans, and finding any that I actually like is so few and far between when browsing a store and it's frustrating. Usually the only jeans I come across that I like, I realize they've been misplaced in men's. In fact, my favorite pair I own was one of the misplaced that I didn't realize until after buying and wearing them. Saw a pair of Lucky brand the other day I instantly had to have for $20, labeled as both an actual size and in girls size and then I saw the "misses" tag.
Let it be clear that I hate the seemingly written in stone and rigid idea that guys should wear things that are at least somewhat big, bulky, boxy or saggy. Yet 99% of the market for mens jeans adhere to this tradition as if there were no such market for "girl jeans for guys". I guarantee if some of these manufacturers would print actual waist sizes in them and place the same jeans in the guys department, they would sell.
I'm not saying I like butterflies and glitter on my pants, but I am saying I do like the neutral casual styles of girls jeans, I like how they look, how they fit, etc... and I can never find guys jeans that are similar enough. When I'm browsing I can often dismiss a pair at first glance for seeing either how wide the leg is, the lack of tapering, the way long rise and often the even more material sewn in below the crotch that makes the seat sag down a couple more inches and in the back gives that classic "no butt" look we all know and love. Regardless of the said "fit" of the pants, all guys jeans suffer in these aspects to some extent. They just don't make fitted, slender, sleek looking jeans in guys the way they do girls. The closest they have ever come is the "skinny jean" trend of late, which most fit like crap on me or at least are not what I want. Sure I own some of the Levis but they're still meh. Even "unisex" jeans are more tailored in the sloppy, baggy, hang off of you style of men's fashion.
Personally I'm fine with buying girls, but I just hate the stigma and the general attitude towards it. As if pants made a certain way "are not for you and you shouldn't want them" blah, blah, blah. Why isn't the same hard time given to tomboys about having too masculine of appearance? I hate double standards. I say just make pants of all varieties and styles aimed at both sexes and let people figure out what they like or don't.
