Once a person finds their on Style, they no longer concern themselves with the current fashion. we become timeless. No guy in a pastel shirt and loafers, should be telling anyone how to dress to start with. Seems like their Mama helped them with their wardrobe.

I don't like my jeans scrapping/ruined under my shoes, this is what happens when bootcut jeans are worn without boots.
No, that's what happens when your pants are too long and you don't get them tailored to fit properly.

They still are carried in many styles by most stores so how can they be not in fashion ? I wear them all the time and so do most people I know.

Well, I guess the majority of Americans that wear boot cut jeans don't care about their jeans being scrapped along the concrete.

A lot of people don't like their jeans to come up and expose their sock when they sit down. Tailoring to keep the jean from going over the shoe at the back will allow this to happen (most people don't even know about tailoring jeans, though).

Also...

People don't like spending a lot of money for jeans. Why would those people spend another 20+ $ tailoring their jeans.. especially if they're cheap already, what's the point?

A lot of people also don't care.

Furthermore, people that wear bootcut jeans with boots don't need to tailor jeans.

Silly people.

Instead of focusing on what types of jeans are or are not still in style, women should always focus on what style works best for them. Bootcut jeans are a flattering style on many body types (which is the reason the style has stayed around)

One style that I am glad to see go is the low rise jean. If I see one more muffin top....



And the skinny jeans....

I actually love low-rise jeans, but I agree in that muffin tops are disgusting. If wearing low-rise jeans were to result in a muffin top for me, you can bet that I'd get rid of them ASAP.

Low-rise jeans are complimentary to only a very, very small segment of the American population (especially since we as a nation are so fat). Even someone who is 5-10lbs overweight should not wear low-rise but that hasn't stopped the muffin top masses who have squeezed their fat behinds and love handles into a pair.

Even in body conscious LA, I see more people than not who just simply should not attempt to wear low-rise jeans
