Death of Skinny Jeans




I remember when I first noticed this phenomenon. It was the summer of 2008. My brother had just picked me up from BWI airport and I was hungry so we stopped by the McDonald's on Riverdale Road. When I walked in I noticed a group of wayward looking youths hanging out inside the McDonald's. I noticed that they all were dressed alike. At first I thought they were all fun boys gay because they had on really tight jeans. I pointed this out to my brother and he said that it was something the youths in the area were doing. All I could do was shake my head and go about my business.

This phenomenon has caught fire and it has now been deemed acceptable for males to rock jeans that are as tight as a woman would wear. Not only are their jeans tight but they sag their jeans. In my opinion this just looks really stupid and uncomfortable. Growing up guys always sagged their jeans (not me because Ma Dukes wasn't having it) but this is just unacceptable. This trend has been headlined by the talentless rap group The New Boyz. Even grown men are doing it. It just boggles the mind. I'm sorry but my nuts need room to breathe without my jeans restricting them against leg.



Please if you are a grown Black man please let this fad go. Its not very becoming. Lets leave it to our Caucasian counterparts. Lets show the younger generation that its ok to wear clothes that actually fit. If not for anything else listen to Steve's take on skinny jeans:

this is correct...skinny jeans on grown ass men is not attractive...even on the caucasian counterparts.....

now the youngins...i mean saying male and skinny jeans in the same sentence not appealing...but i think how the kids rock it (minus the sagging) is trendy and fresh...not my style, but i can't knock it..

Interesting!

The latest fashion trend in apparels today is the skinny jeans that give you a lean look. However, if you are unable to get into those, you would also be happy to put on those wide legged pants or trousers that are also hot with the fashionistas. When worn with a short narrow top and a slim fit jacket along with high heel shoes, this combination would look cool and give you that much longed for lean look.

Try it out this season!

I have this thing where I really hate jeans that aren't boot cut or at least slightly flared on men...so when I saw a guy waiting for a taxi in a pair of tight skinny jeans, I just shook my head. ALL (every single last one) his attractive points disappeared.

Unless you're some kind of performer (Black or White) leave the skinnies alone. I don't want to see you in them.

And now men are wearing hot pink and lime green skinny jeans. What is the matter with males? It's not attractive at all.
