Uh, I think "Friends that would blow away if the wind blew too hard" constitutes as being incredibly thin....

Unless your view of "fat" is someone that has even an ounce of fat on them....which I hope not.

yes...i'm thinner than that and i don't wear skinny jeans much. But my point was that fat people shouldn't wear them either...and that seems to be rampant everywhere.

A size 4 is too fat for skinny jeans. I think they look fine on 15 year olds but IMO they just look really silly on any grown woman that has hips or is bigger than a size 2.

You know what I hate? Those super tight, low slung jeans on guys that pull across their backside between their butt and their knees and look like they are about to fall off even as they look way too small. I think it's supposed to be edgy/androgynous/punk/emo/something but it makes them have to walk like they are constipated just to keep them on.

I don't know why so many young men want to look like poorly dressed prepubescent girls. Not only is it painful to see but they really can't make themselves look more ugly.

You got screwed. My jeans come from the GAP, and American Eagle, as well as some Jag jeans from Nordstrom. ALL have been washed regularly, for years (except my ONE new pair!) and they look as good as they did the day I bought them.

Best friend gets hers from AE and Target, and hers hold well, too.....and she has a horse, so she does a lot of stable work and riding in them.

I don't like bootcut anything, but if they're not in style, why am I seeing them in every catalog and store?

I can't stand boot cut or flair leg. But I am only 5'2 and that style looks silly on me. I stick with straight leg or skinny jeans.

If i like them, then i'll wear them

I, too, prefer my jeans flared out, wide legged also. So much more comfortable and I can wear them all day long.

I don't care for skinny jeans though. A little too tight on my ankles these days.
