    So do you people think skinny jeans look good on guys?
    I personally think they look odd - like chicken feet - and prefer baggy jeans.
    Is there anyway to add a poll?

    Personally, I cant wear them with a 34 waist, but still I rarely think they look good even on guys that wear a size 28.

    I do think it looks odd, I like jeans to have a little break in them and the painted on look doesn't do it for me.

    I prefer slim/straight fit jeans like APC new standards but I have nothing against skinny jeans however denim leggings look stupid on every male I see them on.

    I look like a great Roman emperor when I wear skinny jeans. No lie.

    This is true for me as well.

    They almost always make anyone look rediculous.

    I should have learned to avoid threads like this by now. Some of you guys are infuriatingly boring.

    Most people can't pull them off, but that's true with lots of things.

    I think it also depends on what you mean by "skinny". The standard, at least in US, seems to be bootcut or baggy jeans, at least among the general population. A skinny jean, to me, are those horrible torture pants you sometimes see kids on skateboards wearing; I'm aware, however, that, to some people, a skinny jean is anything that flatters the figure.

    For me, I prefer a slimmer, straight cut. Skinny jeans - the super-tight variety - scream youthfulness and rebellion; they stand out, they make a statement, and it's not a very subtle one. For some people, that's fine - that's what they want, or what they like. They can pull it off. But, I don't think most people can.

    What is "skinny?" Are we calling 19cm skinny? Some (98% of US) would. I wouldn't, if they are sized correctly. What about new cure?

    I was under the impression that 19cm is based on the new cure. Have I been mislead?

    Based on the cure, predecessor to new cure. Not certain though. Need fashion historian input here.
