    Typically depends on the store.

    Places that are a bit hipper tend not to care or find the idea amusing/interesting/something.

    Places that are stodgier tend to have an undertone of vague disapproval, but won't voice it or actively do anything about it.

    there are very few men's jeans that are either tight or stretchy. I don't really wear jeans, but I would consider wearing women's ones if I did.

    Why not, if you are self-confident enough. I know guys who have pulled it off to great success with both sexes.

    So, can anyone give advice on this obviously controversial subject? I'm considering a few pairs from Barney's and don't know what to look for in terms of sizing and what not. I wear a 31w 30h men's. I read somewhere that low-cut chick jeans will can be dangerously low cut?

    Wait...you're planning to buy expensive girl jeans?
    I thought buying girl jeans was a way to save money on slim fits...

    Yeah. I did it in the past because I needed to add to my denim collection quickly and was on a budget. The advantage to wearing girl's jeans is that you can get a slim, flattering cut for cheap, as opposed to having to get over the $100 line to get a similar fit in men's jeans. I'd never pay a lot for girl's jeans. I don't wear them anymore either because I've moved away from the low-rise boot cut look anyway.

    Yeah see that's what I thought. For the money you'd probably want to buy slender guy fitted jeans.

    If you wear 31/30 that's not small enough that you need to buy girl's jeans. There are plenty of men's jeans that will fit you just fine.

    I work in retail and frequently wear girls jeans at work (wear better jeans outside of it [​IMG]). The fit is much better then any of the mens jeans for smaller guy and they don't need to look at all feminine; stick to bootcut and straight leg, stay away from anything like flare.

    FYI (roughly)
    0 = 27
    2 = 28
    4 = 29
    etc.

    One question that I was always curious about, aren't girl jeans going to be a bit looser in the hips on guys?

    Wearing girls clothing doesn't make you gay, it makes you: a girl.

    But what about Velvet Blazers?

    I was actually convinced to keep a pair of jeans (Lee 101Z) by seeing a pic of a guy in the other SF wearing the female cut of the jean.

    Dude I'm 6 ft. Weight 200 and wear a size 36 and I pull of tight jeans fine, but I don't wear girls. I figured it get some strange looks from old women if I bought some jeans with rinestones andi found this pair of quiksilver slim fit 2% spandex jeans. They're really tight and stretch really good so I can't really rip the ass which is a plus. And they're dudes jeans.
