Men's Skinny Jeans

Men's Skinny Jeans has its roots in music portraying a dandy rock and roll image. It surfaced in the 50's through Elvis Presley & James Dean pioneers of snug fitting jeans. In the 60's the Rolling Stones continued the trend and passed it on to the likes of The Ramones & The Clash in the 70's . The 80's were a bit quiet as guys opted for flared jeans but fastforward 20 years Hedi Slimane at dior, brought them back into the fashion radar paraded by whip thin models.
Men no longer nurse the fear of being unconventional or labelled as much less stigma is associated with skinny Jeans. Men are becoming more savvy and want to have more fun with fashion. Trust me they are not as constrictive as they appear :o) i got most of my pals asking me how my main vein was going to breathe..lol.If you intend to get on board you got to switch from boxers to lowrise briefs or trunks :oD ummm...jockstraps,thongs or going commando are other suitable alternatives :oD you certainly don't want to have a wedgie induced grimace cos these jeans would send some stares your way.
Best to keep your tops plain, let the attention remain on your legs. Men with more edgy or artistic style would pull off this look with ease. And please guys if your waist size is more than 34 stay away from skinny jeans. If you got huge thighs that get a lot of friction when you're walking go search another fit, you don't really have to be skinny but you should be on the leaner side to rock them.

All of the jeans featured in this post are by Dr Denim & available at Asos.

I can see how artsy, edgy men could pull these off, but I really don't think skinny, colorful jeans are for most men.
