Guys and girls jeans (yes, another thread about it)

    Seriously, when are they gonna starting marketing jeans to guys that are cut like girls?

    I've grown to hate guys jeans, and finding any that I actually like is so few and far between when browsing a store and it's frustrating. Usually the only jeans I come across that I like, I realize they've been misplaced in men's. In fact, my favorite pair I own was one of the misplaced that I didn't realize until after buying and wearing them. Saw a pair of Lucky brand the other day I instantly had to have for $20, labeled as both an actual size and in girls size and then I saw the "misses" tag. [​IMG]

    Let it be clear that I hate the seemingly written in stone and rigid idea that guys should wear things that are at least somewhat big, bulky, boxy or saggy. Yet 99% of the market for mens jeans adhere to this tradition as if there were no such market for "girl jeans for guys". I guarantee if some of these manufacturers would print actual waist sizes in them and place the same jeans in the guys department, they would sell.

    I'm not saying I like butterflies and glitter on my pants, but I am saying I do like the neutral casual styles of girls jeans, I like how they look, how they fit, etc... and I can never find guys jeans that are similar enough. When I'm browsing I can often dismiss a pair at first glance for seeing either how wide the leg is, the lack of tapering, the way long rise and often the even more material sewn in below the crotch that makes the seat sag down a couple more inches and in the back gives that classic "no butt" look we all know and love. Regardless of the said "fit" of the pants, all guys jeans suffer in these aspects to some extent. They just don't make fitted, slender, sleek looking jeans in guys the way they do girls. The closest they have ever come is the "skinny jean" trend of late, which most fit like crap on me or at least are not what I want. Sure I own some of the Levis but they're still meh. Even "unisex" jeans are more tailored in the sloppy, baggy, hang off of you style of men's fashion.

    Personally I'm fine with buying girls, but I just hate the stigma and the general attitude towards it. As if pants made a certain way "are not for you and you shouldn't want them" blah, blah, blah. Why isn't the same hard time given to tomboys about having too masculine of appearance? I hate double standards. I say just make pants of all varieties and styles aimed at both sexes and let people figure out what they like or don't.

    No, it's genuine.

    Those don't fool me. Still that classic Levi men's look to it. What's up with goofy old-school rise? Like 10 inches going on there or something, it just looks odd with the skinny leg.



    Thanks, "d00d". I am, aren't I?

    What the fuck are you talking about? My old jeans are not fitted, but since i started caring about fashion, all i wear are jeans with a very good fit (and crotch hugging, ´cause they´re mostly dsquared2). Most designers make jeans that are slender and sleek and everything else you mentioned... I don´t know why answered seriously, this can´t be for real [​IMG]

    I wore girl jeans when I was a poor high school student and couldn't afford to spend more than $30 on jeans. But even those days are over, slim jeans are mainstream now.

    If not a troll, you are an idiot. You found your way to the internet...now find your way to some of those affiliate sites to your right.

    Can't be for real? Why I was instructed to come here from one snob-fest to another one that's no different, I have no idea. You post something they wanna see, or else it's not for real, it's trolling. If it's disagreeable, might be a troll post. Seems yet again everyone here assumes money is of course no obstacle, everyone lives in a big city where all these obscure retailers run their specialty clothing shops, and if you don't know all about it then "wow man d00d brah, you're really stupid troll 4 realzah"!

    Okay, so maybe you're content with the jeans you have, but I rarely ever see any dude wear that I'd call fitted, slender, or sleek in the way that I'd like it to be. Levis slim and skinny fits are pretty dang lame to me for the most part.

    Should I warn all the others who don't give a damn?

    post pics of what you're thinking of, then. apc new cures have a rise of ~9in, naked & famous skinny guys have a ~9in rise, hell one of the nudie fits probably has what you're looking for. if you want something even more crotch-huggingly tight, perhaps you should invest in jeggings?

    If you're trying to be fashionable, quit buying skinny jeans. They had a moment in 2005. Now they're so played out it's ridiculous.

    But if you're really gonna press on it, go buy a pair of APC petite standards and size down 3. Perfect skinny fit.

    Is the fit you're looking for a 'skin tight' fit? Since you sound pretty skinny Nudie Tight Long John is almost skin tight and sounds right for you. Also Cheap Monday Tight. But if you like to rock girls' jeans then go ahead. I actually know a few people who do. Girl jeans have a lot lower rise and usually smaller back pockets.

    WV, and don't care about where I should move so don't bother.

    I'm not. Just like what I like. I'm also not necesarrily looking for a skinny jean, which usually implies that cuff is small. Problem is in the guys department, if it's not skinny fit, then you can bet it'll be pretty damn relaxed all throughout.

    $195 - $200 for a pair of pants? I've come to the wrong place. My quest really isn't to find the tightest dude jeans on the Earth, it just a question of why I can't find a pair in the guys for a decent price that are basically a replica of "chick jeans". Take for example, the basic AE line and note the difference between what they describe as "sits low on waist" and "fitted through thigh" on their "slim" line for guys, and compare that to the "skinny", "artist", "original boot", or even "boyfriend" jeans for girls.
