Men...Skinny? or No Skinny? That is the question...

Ok people! I really wanna address this skinny jean issue because, as most of you know, I always promote individuality. Some fashion observers say skinny jeans' tight hold on certain men stems in part from the wearers' desire to show off their gym-sculpted bodies.

Men are discovering, as women have long known, that the style can be unforgiving. One sometimes must diet and wiggle, tug and stretch to squeeze into a pair of tight jeans (Ok, I admit. Men should not have to do all of that to fit into any jean).

No worries guys! The makers of men's jeans are trying to be more accommodating. Levi Strauss & Co. added room in the seat and thigh in its newest skinny jeans for men. True Religion added what it calls a "four-way stretch" spandex material to its line of men's jeans selling for between $172 and $398. (Worried that men consider spandex in anything other than gym clothes to be for women only, it isn't advertising that detail.) True Religion says 15% of the top-selling men's jeans in its own retail stores were "slim leg" jeans in the first quarter of 2009, up from 11% in the year-ago first quarter.

A Levi spokeswoman says: "Over the past several months, our men's skinny jeans styles have been among our most requested and top-selling jeans."

The rapper Jay-Z taunts skinny-jeans-wearing rappers as effeminate in his recent song "D.O.A." Sample lyric: "You boys jeans too tight, you colors too bright, your voice too light." A spokeswoman said the rapper wasn't available to comment.

Kevin Moran, a 6-foot-tall, 200-pound, 47-year-old New Yorker, says he gets compliments from men and women whenever he wears his low-rise skinny jeans.
"I don't know why some men are so anti-skinny jeans," he says. "I'm sure they think they look just fine in their low baggy jeans that they have to hold up or else they will fall down."
OMG!!!! I am so glad that you said that Mr. Moran!!! I am so sick and tired of men (boys) walking around holding their pants up in the front because they hang so low! Why?? What happens when you need to use both hands????...Besides, you look crazy!!! It is not cute in any shape, sort, or fashion. I am sorry. There is NOTHING fashionable about seeing your whole entire bum and watching you hold up your pants in the process. Anyway, that is another story. We need all day to debate that issue. SMH...

So in conclusion, Skinny or No Skinny??? I think SKINNY. This can be a very fashionable item, if wore well, on any man (just make sure if you are of large frame it compliments your body type). On one hand we have the guy that wears pants 5x's too big and the other who like to wear pants that fit just right w/ a bit of room for comfort...Which guy are you??? My advice: Buy pants that fit and compliment YOU!!! That is key! Here's to fashion & individuality!!! Happy Shopping! ;D


Ok...NO! These are more like leggings! How in the world are you gonna get out of them...lol

  1. I like to write the contents of the moderators, welcome to my home to see you ~! My address is: www.true-religion-jeans-outlet.us.

  2. umm most of the "skinny" jeans you listed are actually just regular fit or slim fit. slim fit has nothing to do with skinny. i know that because i wear slim fit and i am not a FAGG (not that there is anything wrong with that)

  3. So true..the first image was skinny and the rest are slim fit..skinny were meant to be tight.
