Are there any jeans out there that accentuate bowlegs? Seems that there are some women out there that fall for this.

Is this a surgery you're planning on getting? I guess cowboy cut Wranglers would be the most appropriate, right?

lol, nah man mine are natural. no breaking and resetting of the knee caps recquired.

Wranglers huh? Nutten else? I'm not going for a Yosemite Sam look, just wondering if there are jeans that are cut with a slight curve as opposed to straight legs.

Skinny-legged jeans do this well.

I saw a pair of Diesels or G Stars that had a dart in the inside of the knees to create a look like this. AND, I think that this may have been discussed on the other SF, if my memory serves me right. But I would not be able to even begin suggesting how to search for it.

i think i recall an ep of MTV's MADE (yes, i know) where the guy wants to be homecoming kindg and hes really really overweight and has severe bowed legs, its creepy. bowed legs aren't something most people desire...

I just keep thinking of the Simpson's episode where in this one scene Grandpa complains about having rickets.

I know we're making jokes, JoMak, but it just seems to me that you're not going to look like you have bowlegs unless you really DO have bowlegs.

i do.....as a kid i used to have to wear those forest gump braces. talk about torture. i grew out of it for the most part but when i'm in shorts like when i used to play football [soccer] girls would comment on how they like my bowlegs. its not visible otherwise.

i was just curious though if there were jeans thast were actually cut in this way.

I don't wear jeans, so I can't help you, but I can tell you that I've known women who DO find bowed legs, to be attractive on men. They tell me that a bowed leg, makes a man's backside, look sexy. Derek Jeter, has bowed legs. Not TOO bowed, but they are slanted, some. Jackie Onassis had bowed legs, too. Maybe that's what Ari liked, about her . . .

I am having difficulty believing this. Can you show me a pic of an attractive bow-legged person?
