are bootcut jeans out? - Page 2

post #16 of 38
I always thought bootcot is kinda affected - do not like how it looks on guys, and it certainly is not "necessary" for fitting jeans over boots. Even (standard) slim jeans fit over cowboy boots with no problem.

I know someone who recently bought a pair of slim jims online and when they arrived they had a slight bootcut. Take that as you will.

According to retailers the boot is still their best seller, due to the average fashion savvy and heavyset guy, you know the one who wears the pointy boots and an Affliction, Ed Hardy style tee.

As far as taste makers go and a good quota of people here the boot cut has been dead for a good 2 years and isn't due for a reemergence IMO for another 12 to 18 months. When it does make a come back expect a fairly slim (APC NS cut) fit and a break around the calf area. 16" knee to a 17"-18" opening.

You pretty much hate everything though, including prints, whimsy and other countries.

You'll pry my 70's style flarezzzz from my cold, dead hands!

i think they are around to stay as a standard option - the look is too forgiving, flattering, and universal for it to go away - whereas not every guy can pull off straight leg or skinny.

its kind of like, yeah, pointy toe heels and a nice pair of sevens on a chick are kind of played out, but you can't deny she looks damn good

Just curious, is this a gut feeling or some sort of cycle that you've picked up from the past? I find your prediction interesting and fairly sensible.

The 'upside down triangle' is pretty much the definition of classic masculine proportions in clothing. Leave the bootcuts for women with thunderthighs and get some 1947 501s like every other well dressed 'broader' male.

Which retailers would they be? I'd be damn surprised if the younger-targeted end of the UK high street for example was still selling more bootcut jeans... then again, Brighton and London are hardly representative of the rest of the country.

They have their time and place, I love my BOLA Ecru Embos...

You got any actual experience to back that up?? A well executed bootcut is infinitely more flattering on a bigger/heavier guy than 1947's and the hip flare that comes with them.

Bootcuts, in general, are not out, they're just not "in." I think the same can be said for straight legs three or four years ago: people still wore them, stores still sold them, but it wasn't "the thing," the bootcut was. However, as a previous poster stated, flarez are out, as they were a trend (rather than a classic style), and I predict the same will soon be true for skinny jeans and anti-fit, droopy-ass jeans.

I think it depends, it can look sloppy if they are too loose... A nice slim bootcut like the BOLA is good.
