This week, the local newspaper here ran a feature article about men wearing women's jeans....'Seems to be a growing trend (at least in this area--I'll just say the southeastern U.S.). Quoting the article: "A growing number of hipster/rocker types are choosing ladies jeans over those tailored for their own gender" Seems (according to the article) these guys " have a genuine hatred for the super baggy jeans that became a staple in the early 1990's. Even ordinary men's jeans--those not designed to sag eight inches past a man's boxers--are too loose to please these 20 year olds. Women's jeans on the other hand, tend to have smaller waists, fit more snuggly around the thighs and generally offer a tighter fit all over--all qualities that these 'hipsters' look for in their jeans". Continuing my quoting the article: "It seems that more and more guys these days wanna wear their jeans like Dwight Yoakam--meaning they fit tighter than the label on a Coke bottle. The explanation for this 'trend' seems to be that today's man has a hankering to show off his...assets." The article mentioned an easy "formula" to typically convert men's jean sizes to women's....simply subtract 22 from a given man's jean size--i.e. a man's size 28 waist would be a 6 in Women's Jeans, a 30 would be an 8, and so on. (No mention though, about what to do for inseam sizes! I don't know HOW inseam sizes for full-length jeans would be accomodated). I found this interesting. Anyone else know of this new "fad" (?) going on in your area of the U.S.?
