Fashion: Skinny Jeans on Guys

...am I the only one that sees some dude in skinny jeans and wonder if it's some kind of Shakespearean fashion revival? I mean, I see skinny jeans and think that maybe doublets and cod pieces should be involved. And lotsa smutty Ye Olde English talk.

What am I missing here? I'm still wearing boot cut jeans and cargo pants. I'm so 2001.

And I think it would be cool if doublets and cod pieces came back. Especially if they were Judge Dredd style.

(I realize this has been posted before somewhere, but I don't think it featured cod pieces or doublets)

Ten points for a Judge Dredd reference.

And it's pretty common for me to see a couple in matching skinny jeans and asymmetrical haircuts. Especially in the more hipster-laden areas. It's not my style but whatever floats your boat.

It's just time for people to not wear gigantic baggy jeans anymore. Boot cut jeans are fine, but they're casual. They don't have to be spandex, just make sure they fit. And for Christ's sake, don't buy into the whole crayola color jean fad, because it's stupid. No one wants to see you in tight orange or tan jeans.

The key is doing something to show off that body. Having some sort of style. Too many men throw on whatever happens to be laying on the floor closest to their bed when they get up in the morning. Yuck!

I have plenty of style. Just ask anybody who's seen me in clothes. All three of 'em.

I'm not for skinny jeans even though I'm a tall skinny guy and scene girls would mob me just because I was wearing them. What if I'm more conservative with my clothing? I don't want you to be able to visually measure my manjunk. It's like a the male equiv of cameltoe. Slutty. I also don't want jeans so tight that they pull out leg hairs when I try to play-kick one of my buddies in the head at school. I don't want to feel like I'm in tights or bondage gear. I want functional pants. My biggest gripe with most pants today is how useless the hip pockets are... I have to stand up straight and push with some effort to get my damn cell phone out. What gives?!

Well if you really want to go conservative, try the Martin Luther look:

You won't have to be on a diet of worms to fit. Get it? Reformation humor doin' anything for ya?

Just wear regular fit jeans. Levis 501 work just fine.

Skinny, fine. Second skin, bad.

I'm not a huge fan of skinny jeans in general...I don't find them to be very flattering. But they can look really sharp on the right person.

I own one two pairs of jeans that are "slim fit." They are NOT skinny jeans, there is still adequate room for all of my leg to move around inside the denim. They fit well and make my already marvelous butt look even better.

But.

They periodically smush my junk. Every so often, I'll notice one ball on either side of the pant split or the outline of some wang. I can't fathom how painful a pair of actual skinny jeans would be on the groin.

P.S. - I hate emo kids.

Count me in as not a fan of skinny jeans. Although I am making an effort to buy clothes that fit properly, instead of like a parachute. Which in many cases means spending extra money on tall sizes instead of buying something one size larger to get the length I need. I'm ok with slim fit jeans.

I am admittedly no fashionista, but there ain't no way in hell I'm gonna wear skinny jeans. I've tried them on, and they just aren't comfortable. I live in jeans, and they should be the most comfortable clothes in the wardrobe. Plus, I'm too old to be jumping on fashion bandwagons.

Plus, does dis guy look like a hipster to you?

Okay... No. I don't wear skinny jeans. I may be a hipster but I refuse dress like one.



I only wear Levis. Boot cut. Dark blue. None of that faded/pre-warn crap.

When I see tight jeans on a guy I either think gay or a skateboarder. Relaxed fitting jeans at the waist and sometimes boot cut for me. I don't care for these effeminate trends, or the gansta baggy sytles.

I find the skinny jeans look amusing on skateboarders and emo types, at least they are trying. But the skinny jeans wore prisonsex lowrider style looks really stupid.

Will, in reference to your pictures, I'm confused.

The little elf slippers men wear today don't go with boot cut jeans.

I wear "boot cut" because I actually wear boots most of the time.

They look kinda goofy with running shoes. I avoid that combo.

...

Screw a belt buckle that holds a lighter, I want a codpiece that holds brass knuckles.

For myself, I like bootcut jeans. I was a big fan of the flares when they came around again in the 90s (not the huge pipeline/elephant ones... the more subtle ones.)

Guys look hot in relaxed fit jeans. Bootcut jeans. Cargo pants. Skinny jeans do not enter into that picture AT ALL.

You don't have to go "elf slipper" with bootcuts. You can go walking shoe, you can go boot, you can go slightly dress, whatever. I like to wear my Chuck Taylors with my bootcut pants when I'm not dressed for work or a date or anything. Nothing in the world comes close to Chucks. When it starts warming up, you can also just toss on flip flops.

Then again, don't give up on elf slippers, some of them are badass:

i personally dont like them because they hinder my ability to move from the waist down and they dont have quite as much pocket space.

i dress in whatever is comfortable, i dont really have a set pants style.

I don't like skinny jeans and would never wear them, but to make fun of them would be doing something I told myself I would never back when everyone used to give me shit about my insanely baggy pants that hung to my knees. I am not a hypocrite dammit!

This still doesn't stop me from giving my straightedge little brother endless shit about wearing chick pants. I gotta' get my revenge somehow...

I wear boot cut (also cause I actually wear boots) these days. I still have a tendency to get them a little on the big side though.

A proper fitting boot cut on a man is very very sexy. I just might drop my jaw and stare.

My jeans are about the same style as those worn in the 50's like the picture below. I did go through a bell bottom phase in college for a while though. I do remember a trend in the early 60's where guys would buy standard Levis and have them pegged much like todays skinny jeans.

I think the skinny jean trend is funny. I see it around campus on a regular basis. I don't find it attractive in the slightest. Don't get me wrong--I like seeing a guy's tushy, but that doesn't mean I want all the details I much prefer a boot cut with a bit of hug through the rear, but not super-tight. That's hot.

Black 501's, that's how I roll. None of that skin tight bullshit, which I imagine must feel like you have your nuts in a vise. Also slim blue jeans, nothing that forces me to lie down to stuff my ass and legs in.
And ocasionally, on cold days, Levis relaxed fit (that I've worn to hell, full of holes) with sweatpants underneath. Classy.

OK, a little clarification.

My Levis 514 Slim Straight look like this. A bit narrower in the thigh, and straight bottom which is not at all tight or clingy. They look, well, like a pair of jeans that fit. Also, they're narrow enough at the bottom that they do NOT drag on the ground when wearing my Chucks or low cut Adidas, since those are all I wear anymore.



My lighter 514's run a hair smaller than my dark pair.
