I own one pair of jeans, which I think I've worn once in the past year, probably for yard work. I only wear skirts and dresses outside of the house. I wear warm leggings underneath in the winter so the cold weather doesn't bother me.

So no, I'm not a fan of jeans, but it's just personal preference rather than a judgement on how they're made or how they look on others. I don't really look that closely at them to know.

Yeah, I wear jeans almost every day. Even to work. I have 5 or 6 pair of jeans. Most of them are Boot cuts, but I do have 1 pair of skinny jeans (which IMO, look fine if worn with a tunic that covers the rear) , and 2 pair of jeggings (2 different colors) that I also wear with tunics.


I live in jeans. lol

The array of jeans that is available today is so diverse that it's hard to even talk about "jeans" without a greater description.

There are casual jeans, dressy jeans, ripped jeans, jeans meant to look dirty, distressed, faded, etc.

I think most of them look as good as the body that is wearing them. That's true of most clothes.

The only kinds of jeans I really don't like are the ripped ones and the "old man" jeans.

What I think looks terrible are those tight denim leggings....even on young thin girls. To me, it looks so uncomfortable. Iíd rather have a bit of air between my jeans and my body.
Most of the denim leggings feel like leggings or yoga pants. They are soft and comfy. More than traditional jeans.

I was like this too when I was heavier. I hated having to buy size 12. I know...really stupid. Because a good pair of jeans that fits well can be flattering on most people.
I love 7 for all mankind.
Interesting, I wonder if that is generational. Iíve never particularly had issues wearing jeans. Fit was hard for me, but stretch changed all that. When I was younger it seemed really hard to find the latest jeans trend in my size. But thatís no longer an issue. So I donít see how size plays into it.

No, I do not agree. Any piece of clothing can be ugly depending on style, color, pattern, what it is on.

Heh... Jordache was exactly what I was thinking.

I don't care for the style of some of them, but to each his own. However, I don't find them very comfortable anymore - I think they were more comfortable 25-30+ years ago than now, but maybe that is just an age factor.

I love jeans if they're well made and fit right. You can be very casual or a bit dressy with a silk shirt or
nice sport jacket. Good shoes/boots can add to the look.

Besides, IMO they couldn't possibly be as unattractive as the "cold shoulder" look. It just
looks cheap.
