    You're wearing women's pants. How do you not realize this? You're venturing dangerously close to 80's spandex fashion. Man up.

    Or one of any numerous rock stars. I'll give the celebrities a pass on it though, even though it's still goofy as hell. Seeing some everyday joe at the bank increases the goofy factor about 20 fold, though.

    Even women wearing skinny pants sometimes looks ridiculous.
    But what's with every single woman in America wearing stretch pants all the time?

    I call it the "pancake butt effect". Even chicks with nice posteriors suffer from it when they wear those hipster knickers.

    Back in the late 60's and early 70's, we wore tight pants.

    But these "skinny" pants these days, holy cow, you really have to be skeletal. And if you're not and try to squeeze your ass into a pair, you just look ridiculous.

    I'm 54, and I exercise and have a strict diet just so I can continue getting into a pair of slim boot cut jeans. But I will never, nor have I ever at any time in my life, been able to get into such blood flow restrictors.

    I wear skinny jeans, they are stretchy and super comfortable. Not skin tight though.

    I like skinny jeans on me - and on some of the ladies - not all!

    Anyone see the Always Sunny episode where Frank ( Danny Devito ) discovers skinny jeans? Priceless.

    I would think that could lead to popularity with the ladies, yes?

    I am still bitter that mens' bell bottoms have been unavailable for mass consumption throughout my entire adult life.

    Levi 510 and 511's for life. Right now I have the classic vans on, Levi 510's and a Sabbath t shirt on. I like that look, I feel comfortable, I am in my early 20's and girls dig the way I dress and I havent had issues there. Also you can be hung and it all fits in skinny jeans, just ask you're mom.:)

    When I see a middle aged guy with a huge beer gut, loose fitting dockers and a golf shirt, I am rather disgusted at how someone could be such a example of totally giving up on thier body but I don't start a thread on it.
