For some reason that seems to be "the style" now. Have jeans with great holes in them. That's one aspect of it I don't understand but here it's in the minority thankfully. Most look OK though.

I think a great fitting pair of jeans looks good. The problem is, unless a person is fairly thin, it is hard to wear them well, especially for men. My husband has a bit of a belly, so if jeans fit his waist they’re baggy everywhere else.

What I think looks terrible are those tight denim leggings....even on young thin girls. To me, it looks so uncomfortable. I’d rather have a bit of air between my jeans and my body.

"Anyone agree?"

i agree they are not for me.
however, regarding most of the people i see, they do look better than:
1. yoga pants.
2. culottes.
3. capris.

I hardly wear jeans and feel "dressed down" when I do. Certainly not acceptable to wear everywhere.

I wear yoga pants most of the time. They are stretchy, but not baggy, and always look neat. I wear cropped pants more than long, because I live in a hot climate, and it’s better than shorts...trust me.

It seems to be more popular in some geographical areas than in others over here as well; I don't see it that often in my area either. I do have a pair of ugly, holey jeans but those are the ones I put on for yard work/working on the car or other work which I would not want to ruin my nicer jeans for.

The area where I grew up was poor and it was common to see holes in jeans/pants. When I see the jeans with large holes in them, that is what I associate them with; it just doesn't make sense to me as to why someone would want to wear them that could afford ones without holes.

Eh. I have various hand - dyed tops that have natural, intended irregularities.

2. All of the pockets, rivets and stitching just look rough and amplify when the jeans don’t fit well. If you wear khakis or or other regular pants, if they don’t fit, they just look too big and you see wrinkles. If jeans don’t fit, you see so much on the jeans, such as light-colored stitching, that amplifies the lack of fit.
I generally think that denim is far more flattering than khaki and other "slacks" material.

3. Back pockets on jeans are almost never used and the designs on them can be ugly.
I use mine all the time. It's generally where my phone is.

Anyone else agree? Back in the ‘80s, people wore Levi’s and there were few jean alternatives, so the range of ugly jeans didn’t exist, and people wore jeans only in more casual environments. That was fine.
I agree that there are settings where denim is inappropriately casual, but that's about all.

Khakis, or jeans that are all one color (such as beige or black), are more presentable.
I dislike colored denim (other than blue). I will make a sometime exception for black denim only if it is not even slightly faded) I LOATHE khakis in all instances.

Then don't wear jeans. Problem solved.

I wear jeans because they're convenient and comfortable. To everything? No. But then, almost no one does this.

I admit, I'm baffled by people who get all worked up because someone else wears jeans...

Probably the same folks who get worked up about the contents of other people's garages.

seeing hunter orange at a wedding reception...yeah that gets on my nerves






That must be a Maine thing. I've been to many weddings over my three decades and have only seen that once, a few years ago. The guy was wearing a blaze-orange canvas hunting jacket with camouflage panels. He had just a couple months earlier moved out here from Augusta, accent and all.
