I have to confess that I am over tight jeans. But then I am a grandma.

Boyfriend jeans are a looser fit in the upper thighs...but not baggy....& still fit more snug around the seat & hips...& at the ankle. They still have a tapered look....& true Bf jeans are mid-rise IMO. They are rolled or straight ankle length...like straight skinny jeans.....I love the style!!

For those who didn't bother to read the article, grandpa jeans are only cool if worn by young girls. They still look ridiculous on us old guys. Give me stretch denim skinny jeans any day.

True, that!
This grandpa certainly won't! $98 for a pair of what is basically bell bottom jeans? $298 for straight leg or boot cut jeans? None of the ladies in my family will ever spend that much money on jeans! they would be more likely to go to the men's jeans rack at Big R or Tractor Supply and get Wrangler jeans for less than $30.
A REAL "retro-look" would mean that the fashion designers would return to the days of women's jeans having the zipper up the side, not in front. That would be a return to the 1950s and earlier!

What is this bullspit. All these stupid cuts they keep "inventing", just bring back baggy pants and real relaxed fit pants, so some of us can have nice pants to own.

You can still get relaxed fit style jeans for older people. If they arenít baggy enough, just buy them a size bigger.....

I've seen it a lot. I have a pair, but I don't think they look good on me. I am not tall/thin enough to pull them off. I didn't know they were "grandpa jeans", I just thought they were between a structured and super relaxed fit.

Everything I find relaxed is Relaxed Straight... a slap in the face for me Might as well call it what it is; Boot Cut.

LOL..that's the style I wear and have always worn..those "grandpa" jeans.
Basically wranglers boot cut jeans. They are so comfy and a hella lot cheaper than the prices shown on those links !!

And carpenter pants have always been there..I have a nice white pair I wear in the summer.
