Only following the latest fashion trend is so blase. I for one prefer that people think for themselves.
I completely agree. The fashion industry is just laughing all the way to the bank because some people follow fashion trends like cows going to a slaughterhouse.

I do own some skinny jeans, and I have the body to wear them (not being conceited just true), however I feel they are more appropriate for my teen, not me!
"High-end" is just another word for "overpriced"

I prefer when jeans are flared out some at the ankle areas and don't go all the up to your belly (that tight feeling if you try to eat food wearing them! I hate that). I hate skinny jeans (haven't worn them since high school, but I was skinnier then. I can't now, no damn way!).

I only have 1 bootcut jeans (dark blue) and I only wear them with my black boots, long sleeve white button down shirt, and black belt (only during the fall/winter seasons).

This thread is hilarious. I spent a month in England and Spain in July and plenty of very stylish women were still wearing bootcut. Perhaps you are thinking flared or something else but trust me, the hip 30 somethings aren't typically wearing skinny jeans including London. The teenagers and 20somethings yes but I for one don't care to look like that anyway! I spent a weekend with several of my cousins friends for her wedding. All her friends wore bootcut.

So bootcut jeans aren't marketed in Europe at all? You mean like these:

Bootcut | Womens Jeans Shop | Womens | Next Official Site (http://www.next.co.uk/shopping/women/jeans/2/ - broken link)

or

Boot cut - Jeans - Womens - Debenhams

what about drainpipes?

I don't care what's in fashion, I could wear either one just fine. As long as they fit in the waist, I'm good. Or I could put on a belt, I guess.

Lots of stores around here sell boot-cut pants and jeans so I guess they are in some sort of fashion. I wear them because I think they look good on me. I do not really care if someone else freaks out over them and thinks they look out of style.

Actually, you get better quality material, thread, cut and fit. Plus, they tend to wash better and last longer. My expensive jeans still look like new years later, and the cheaper ones look, well, worn.

Most people feel that way. Most people are not fashionable and wear ugly clothes from like Old Navy and Walmart. I always laugh when people think it makes them special to not care about their clothes much. Um, that makes you average.

And buying into fashion marketing makes you what? Special? Tasteful? Individual? Creative? Trendsetting? Imaginative? Better? Hmmm.

Know what judging a person's character using what clothing stores they shop in, or whether or not high fashion is an interest of theirs as criteria makes you? Rhymes with "crass."
