Thoughts please; Men and Skinny Jeans

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Skinny Jeans! Once banished to the 80's together with leggings, made a comeback about 4 years ago and are clearly here to stay! Most African women are a bit reluctant to wear them (due to being blessed with baby making hips and bums) not realising that curvy figures can look super in the right pair of skinny jeans.

Between the two of us, Mary and I have over 20 pairs of various kinds... super skinny, short, high waisted! We love our skinny jeans. We can dougie all day in em and look good doing it.


Now imagine this... you are off to meet the man who makes your heart go a flutter and as you approach him... you look down at his legs and there is a certain taper to his jeans, a tightness upon his calves and ankles... Dear Lord! He is rocking skinny jeans.

At this juncture, here are the thoughts that may/may not run through your head (depending on where you fall on the skinny jean debate);

a) Those jeans would look waaaay better on me.

b) (BUTT... )"Oh hi!".... (BUNS! CROTCH!)... "No, I haven't been waiting long." (I'VE SEEN TOO MUCH!)



c) Nice... Brother be looking like Lil Weezy. I like.

d) Damn homie...you're black with booty, they are NOT supposed to be that squeezed! As Jay Z said Cant wear skinny jeans coz my N**** won't fit!

e) Oh hell yeah! A man who defines his own style and originality, not a follower but swagster!

Kurlies what say you on this skinny jeans conundrum, yay or nay? Would you be willing to share jeans with your brother, boyfriend/husband, friend? Comments please in reference to answers a, b, c, d or e! Or better yet, your own unique outlook to black men in skinny jeans.

Eeewwwww....*due to lack of a better word*. I just cannot stand skinny jeans on a man, no matter how fashion forward they may be! Plus I must admit, not all women look good in them either...am jus' sayin...Am averse to following trends blindly, I prefer to don what looks good on ME. That's my two cents...

It depends on his shape. If he is a fatty,no bueno. If he is long and lean and is working it,then more power to him.

Loving the varied responses.. I agree with Ms Anon that skinny jeans only look good on skinny white guys..like mika and members of indie bands!!

complete #dislike men in skinny jeans. There is a BIG difference between "slim" or "fitted" jeans and just plain skinny jeans! UGH.

Again, men in skinny jeans are such a turn off!! NO! No!

No, I do not like a man in ANY type of skinny jeans. Especially the brothas! I don't like baggy, saggy pants either. I like a man who knows how to wear a nice fitting jean and cares about whether or not his boxers are on display for the world, or if his pants are so tight that his crotch is disgustingly inviting for "bird watchers."

Sorry to say but thick men in skinnies is a def no no(Randy Jackson that includes you)but skinny guys(Wizzy,Pharrell,C Breezy)can rock them all day in my book.Sucks for the double standard but hey,life aint fair all round.Love a man in skinnies & Vans...love it.

As long as they're not skinnier and tighter than mine, its all good. BTW I love your blog, even though I relaxed 4 months ago, yours is the only natural hair blog I still follow. I think you guys are so cool! Would love to visit your country someday (I live in Brooklyn).
