Before opening the thread those are what I thought of. Can't feel comfortable wearing the same jeans my chick wears. Those are some serious nut huggers

the front rise at 10" is low but doable. the back rise looks to be very low and the rest of the jean is cut WAY to skinny. not funny.

Well, to answer OP question, those jeans in those pictures are obviously too skinny. Why do they still call these "jeans" instead of "legging" is beyond me.

I read the reviews on those jeans (on the U.S. site) out of morbid curiosity. Apparently there are teenage girls that love them, especially tall girls that have trouble getting super skinny jeans with long enough legs. For that demographic, I can see these working. I cannot imagine any male of any age making these work.

I feel like I've seen many fits on SF and real life even who have more or less skin tight jeans down to the knee. The part that (to me) makes them skinny is the lower block. And actually I don't think those are terrible, but they wouldn't be worth wearing.

^ Fairly sure that was posted up here before dogg, mega late pass. Plus: who the fuck drinks Miller Lite?

I could see those jeans working with some different things, or looking neat sized up. Hard to pull off, figuratively and literally, but there's a lot of super cool stuff that's hard to pull off. I can see some kid in high school wearing these and just furiously boning one of the main chicks of the school.

"Too skinny" is whatever amount of skinniness looks bad or feels bad. No good judging jeans by their Levis model number.
