    OK, so avoiding the whole skinny jeans good/bad debate, I'm curious why I've never seen a men's skinny jean for sale that was cut on the bias.
    I'm a bit of an amateur fashion designer and, wanting to teach myself about bias this week, I made a pair of jeans on the bias thinking they would turn out like crap but teach me a valuable lesson...well, they fit (and look!) great and are more comfortable, flexible, and wearable than any jeans(skinny or otherwise) that I've ever worn.

    I've got another pair from the same pattern cut as usual on the straight grain that I made before this one so this isn't just a case of me getting the right pattern.

    So what am I missing? Are they about to explode or come to life and eat my legs? Why isn't this more common? I've seen so many guys in skinny jeans so tight they can barely climb stairs. It seems like the bias would solve this and achieve an even skinnier fit which they obviously want without resorting to poly fabrics.

    And I can't wait to see how they wear!

    I've not been on this forum in years...omg, thinking back on some of my old styles...wow...

    Hi everyone! :)

    Wouldn't that make for very exaggerated diaper butt and billowing out at the knees?

    The fit in the seat is actually quite good. Every time i bend at the hip it pulls vertically from the knee and tightens up the backside. I could see the knees being a problem down the road since theres less downward force from that point, but for now they seem to be holding steady and not riding up.
