Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the whole "fashion" and "style" scene, but I've been wanting to dress nicer and thought this would be a good place for some information.
I have a question about jeans; basically all my life I have just been buying the "straight leg" cut jeans; which style of jeans do you guys prefer? Been reading a lot of fashion articles and looks like "skinny" and "slim" cuts are the most fashionable, is that what y'all recommend?
I always wore straight because they felt comfortable, but I am due for some new jeans and want my next pair to be in the right direction. Slim and skinny looks like they would be really tight (especially around the crotch area)...between slim and skinny is either one more comfortable as far as giving you some wiggle room? Which one is less tight?
I'm excited to get a pair of jeans with a different style because I notice with my straight leg jeans, I always had to get a tailor to sew the bottoms because they would drag under my shoes...Also hoping with slim/skinny jeans they will sit right on top of my shoes so I can show of my shoes as well.
So which cut do you guys recommend? Slim, skinny, or what? Another reason I have been getting straight is because I'm pretty short and feel like skinny jeans would look off on me, and always figured that dark wash straight jeans were "classic".
I gotta say though that my latest pair of dark wash straight jeans, hemmed at the bottom by a tailor have been pretty great. they have a nice shape and fit to them, and when I put on my shoes I pull the tongue up over the bottom of the jean and it seems to fall nicely and have a good fit. Is that good or a tacky thing to do?
I would also like to know because when you google "skinny jeans men" you get a bunch of memes and pics making fun of guys in skinny jeans and calling it gay :S
I also feel like they give a cleaner look especially if you want to show off your shoes, so would slim be a good middle ground? The more I look at my straight leg jeans now the more I feel like they look messy :(
Aside from fit, are you aware of what 'raw' and 'selvege' are?
