YouSpeak: Guys in Skinny Jeans
Great idea or fashion faux pas?
Fashion is fickle. It wasn’t long ago that it was acceptable for guys to wear pants so baggy that their boxers were on display. But now—at least among hipsters and the fashion forward—there’s been a 180-degree turn. Skinny jeans on guys are considered hot.
What was once a style exclusively for women is now being embraced by more and more men. Sales are strong and manufacturers like Gap, Levi’s, True Religion, and 7 for All Mankind, to name but a few, have jumped on the male skinny jeans bandwagon.
Even fans of the trend admit, though, that skinny jeans aren’t for every guy. “Their thighs have to be okay for it,” says one student.
