I also don't care what year this is, but being slim or skinny is always fashionable, especially if you look at runway models, actors, and models in magazines. Most people, especially here, aren't looking to try to look like they are bulkier. Very skinny jeans only look good and are made for skinny people. It's generally a really flattering look on them if they're trying to achieve that style.
But all in all, that's a pretty loaded question as i imagine you just have a problem with most of the slim jeans being discussed on this forum and sufu. You're also making the assumption that skinny=wrong/ugly so people should try to avoid looking skinny.
It just seems that people who are already skinny attempt to make themselves seem even skinnier...and by no means do I mean that skinny is ugly because I'd be calling myself ugly. Wouldn't aesthetics favor a more proportional silhouette??
Why do stacks look good? Stacking reminds me of my days when I had to wear my brother's hand me downs...
Btw, please no one take much offense to my words...I'm attempting to educate myself. I'm more of a suits/sports coats/slacks kind of guy (weird for my age) and have never quite understood the overall concept behind the perfect fit as is so lauded on this thread...I like berlin report's outfits a lot, but am stumped about what's so great about some other outfits that are acclaimed as genius...If anyone could shed some light, I'd like to learn.
*edit* and also, just to make things clear...Is selvage/raw (not clear on the correct term) denim's only purpose in life to allow for a kind of "custom fading" to one's exact body?
