Skinny Jeans

Written by Mr. WellCultured, Friday, February 26th, 2010 in Q&As

A lot of my friends tell me I should wear skinny jeans. I don’t wanna cram into them. What do you think?

Skinny jeans are for skinny people.

The great misconception most people have about skinny jeans is that they are for people to “cram into”- that’s a ridiculous assumption, especially for men. Jean leg fits are best considered no different than a waist measurement: the best think you can do is find a pair of jeans that fits you closely without constriction, not finding a super-baggy pair or a pair that require spandex.

That being said, comparison shop. Do not buy skinny jeans just because they are skinny: try a bunch of different pairs on and see how they fit your body and your legs. Ideally, jeans should be tight enough to not be significantly baggy, but loose enough to allow comfort sitting, walking, or even running. Avoid “carrot cut” (extremely tapered) jeans like the plague- the difference between the big thighs and the thin ankles is disgusting.

So basically, wear what fits. That may be skinny jeans, super-skinny jeans, straight legged jeans, slim-straight jeans, or whatever. Never “cram” yourself into a pair of pants.
