Baggy jeans vs. Skinny jeans

Hi guys,

Admiring the simple fashion style of, lets say Zac Efron, I like pretty much the same clothes, although my body type is closer to mesomorph so my legs are more muscular (not fat, but almost twice as big as Efron's). So since I cannot wear skinny jeans (I just look ridiculous in them), I'm going with baggy ones (not too much though), and I am wondering, what do you say, do baggy jeans go pretty much the same nice way as skinny jeans for all those tops/jackets and footwear in Efron's style? Or will it be "no taste" stuff because its skinny-jeans-only?

- just google "zac efron style" to see some pics at the top of the page

Cheers!

baggy jeans if you re 300 pounds or lives in the ghetto

avoid skinny jeans if you are fat... and definitely go for skinny jeans if you have short leg( it helps to make you appear taller )

my advice lose weight and wear skinny jeans if u admire zac efron so much

slim, not skinny. Focus on getting a good fit, not just something oversized and baggy, it looks sloppy. If you're not used to clothes that fit, go slightly slimmer then you're used to.

Im sorry man, but did you read what I wrote? I'm not fat, I'm fit and have MUSCULAR legs. They are big not because of fat, but because of muscle on them, so skinny jeans look funny on my. And by a little baggy jeans I meant something like that http://cdn.picapp.com/ftp/Images/c/a...mageId=3651341 dunno how to call them tho.

I've played hockey my whole life, so I have huge thighs and a huge ass...I find the best fit for me is Earnest Sewn Fulton...they are a generously cut in the thigh straight leg. I've also had the leg from the lower thigh down, tapered. With a big ass like mine, low rise jeans kinda suck and they have a nice rise...

Those look terrible, way too baggy in the lower half of the leg and way too long. You can either have length with slim jeans, to stack, or you can have extra width (boot-cut or whatever), but you can't have both.

Basically, don't wear skinny jeans or baggy jeans; wear jeans that are just slim and that fit properly.

there's a whole thread in the SW&D section that shows all the brands and their cuts.

Also check out honestforum, there's a pictorial archive of a bunch of brands and models/cuts

Yeah those jeans in that pic you linked to are way too big.

I have big upper legs (25") and I still wear slim jeans. It's just a cleaner look.

of course, this results in temperatures that are not fertility-friendly. but i suffer in silence. for the sake of fashion.

im with you. i love low rise slim jeans. seriously. i let my balls out to hang out and breath once a few minutes an hour so at work , that's how i deal with it.

mm. the key is low rise jeans with a low back rise as well. when you develop your lower back to the point of hip/ lower back definition, that low rise looks really good.
