    Slim boot cut, and they're baggy on me until I sit down, then my junk shows. Wimmins like that.

    If you are old enough you'd remember the mid to late 1980's when pastels were the big thing.

    Wham with George Michael had taken over US fashion. People decided to "Choose Life".

    Skinny Jeans will be remembered like that.

    i was a few years ago.

    my jeans were baggier in my teens/20s (as was the fashion), and i still think this looks pretty good:

    never liked how they'd bunch up like that, some had more flare at the bottom than others. what hasn't been mentioned is the "skater" influence on all of this.

    looking back though, i probably would have been wearing bootcut jeans all along if i knew they existed. just "discovered" them maybe ten years ago. i was still wearing "baggy"-ish (?) jeans when i was 30. i also found that i prefer "skinny" t-shirts and can't believe how big i used to wear them. haven't really worn just a t-shirt in almost 10-20 years though, but have been more recently when it's hot out.

    Its real easy... just get sicker than you've been your entire life for at least 3 months. Weight gone! That was my diet last year. Ha!

    In all seriousness for non-ill people... yup, fairly easy to do. It takes a little while and unfortunately it takes a million self disciplined decisions to add up to 20 lbs or so. But it actually doesn't take exercise either... just cutting calories. Exercise helps of course.

    Dude on the right definitely looks like a skater to me... good point. At 45, I *still* ride a skateboard - not often, but I do. Good exercise and fun! Before guitar I was a skater - just as into it too.

    I got some big ass thighs, no way I can pull off slim or skinny jeans. Some regular but mostly relaxed jeans for me.

    Just my opinion but skinny jeans don't belong on anyone who isn't:

    -skinny
    -under 35
    -of the female persuasion
    Flame away

    I saw Jerry Cantrell walking around playing machines at the casino last night and he was wearing super skinny jeans. He's like 53.
