My MANy Bags Trendspotting #63


Below: Do you classify these as skinny jeans or tights?:-P


Too Tight Or Just Right?

Skinny jeans are no longer just skinny. They are tights! What do guys and gals think of men wearing literally such a piece of 'second skin'? One thing's for sure, it definitely does not help in propagating our species:-P... unless you had other plans for your 'family jewels':-P

This guy in the pic pulled it off quite well. Going for a Harvard look (And not the typical young street punk style), with his classic blue shirt and navy tie and those black rim glasses. He then modernised it with a short cropped blazer and add 'icing' to his outfit with a nice black and white stripe pattern scarf. I adore him revealing his socks, which again runs in stripe pattern and with matching blue tones. How cute:-)

But can anyone pull off jeans this tight easily? I have tried on those super skinny ones at Topman and I have to say, it made my 'chicken legs' look even more 'matchstick'. So I 'chicken' out and put them back in the rack:-P

The guy in the pic seems to handle the tights, oh well, the skinny tights pretty well, but I would be more than curious to see him walking with them.

Looking good on a photo's something, having a correct allure while walking is something else... obviously. ;)

Too much! Even if i like it (just for a night, not for the day) i just can not wear it. I work a lot my thigh and they are like somebody who play soccer.

skinny and tight jeans in my opinion only look nice on guys with so called soccer legs.if you got skinny legs stay away from these styles( like this guy in the pic should)

I always wear tight jeans! You could check out my latest outfit on my blog and tell me what you think of the jeans. Peace/ Harun

I see a lot of tight jeans like that here in DK, probably because it's cold 9 months a year.

I think it's OK except that I'm not a fan of its length.

Aren't these super-skinnies called jeggings? I don't think blokes should really go this skinny with their jeans. It just doesn't look right!

vanja, i tot the other way around. on the runway, u never see a soccer-thighed model wearing very skinny right? personally i thought soccer-thighed wearing skinny will look like
rhino legs

Why can't we just wear slim sweatpants? They look chic and are much more comfortable:)
