Those don't look new. They looked like something the models scrounged out of a Goodwill store.They don't look like bootcut, either. They look like badly-designed bellbottoms.

Yeah these look sloppy and too wide. I agree bootcut is more flattering on most, skinny jeans don't - esp on guys and I rarely see anyone in skinny jeans, and haven't in sometime.

I mean, unless you are thin, or tall, I personally don't think skinny fit is attractive. If you are slim, or have a nice athletic built, stick to straight or slightly boot cut pants.
Just my opinion and really only apply to me. I have worn skinny jeans myself, saw a picture and that was the last time. lol

I wear skinny jeans or leggings a couple of days a week, because I have a couple of longer tunics. Tunics and boot cut, flares, etc., just don't look right to me.

"fashion" or "style" means nothing to me; I wear what makes me comfortable.
If any "fashionista" doesn't like what I am wearing, all I can say is "GO AWAY and leave me alone!"


I wore real bell bottom trousers, both dress and working, for many years. They were the required Uniform Of The Day!
In the 1970s, thatís what we all wore. I mean anyone who wore any sort of pants, wore bells.

Those do not fit like any of the bootcut I buy. A bootcut ends up looking like a straight leg. The straight leg cut ends up being tapered to the ankle. Those shown except for maybe the last few are a flair which are completely different.

How are you supposed to wear boots without boot cut jeans?

Yes, they are just too sloppy and bunched-up at the bottom.

I recently bought myself a few pairs of boot-cut jeans, because I now live in a cold, snowy place, and I'm wearing boots a lot. I think they look great (but mine look MUCH better than those in the link).
