I actually have a legitimate, yet very simple question about tight jeans that these "dudes" wear.........how the fack do they put them on?? Now I'm not talking about jeans that fit. That's what I wear. I don't wear baggy jeans. I'm talkin bout the incredibly skin tight jeans that may as well be painted on. I'd find a picture if I wasn't on my phone, but you all know what I'm talkin bout. I watch my girl put on tight jeans sometimes and see how difficult it looks. So that is where my question comes from. Do you have to suck up your package into your gut? Or perhaps remove it for the day? Or are these fellas not workin with much for the most part?

Perhaps ohiogirl22 can shed some light on the subject.....

Lol. I don't know, but for some reason, top quality black denim seems to have a flattering quasi-stretchy-je-ne-sais-quoi to it. Those really tight ones you're referring to tend to be black or off-black denim (based on my observations) ...I'm guessing during manufacturing, they're somehow able to "up" the stretchiness and then separate those from "regular" jeans My best-fitting jeans are black denim. Durable (they're not new), soft, flattering. Just right - Not too tight

Would you like all the Hillbillies to move into your neighborhood? I think not!

wow.....i cannot explain to you how unimportant your opinion is. Blacks came when there was a social and emotional need for a safe haven for black culture, not to mention a literal safe place. Hipsters come to look cool in the hood. It may not be their plan to move out blacks and Hispanics, but thats whats happening anyway. I'm a southerner myself and I know the reason alot of them don't like NYers to move into their homes is the same reason we don't like hipsters up here: they take away culture, or in a NYer going down south, they make their culture seem better.

p.s.:as a part of the race that was enslaved for hundreds of years on this side of the world, I could care less about what the other guy wanted.
You misunderstood the point. Pretty much I meant we can't complain about the people who move in when it was never the same constant groups to begin with. And tell me how my opinion is any more unimportant than yours? You said you're a southerner, look at some past threads where they mention resentment towards transplants from the south and midwest, so tell me why u think yours is any better. Btw, you were not enslaved, and those times are long gone so looks like your opinion on "what the other guy wanted" is unimportant either.

In every single decade there are those people (usually in their 40's and up) who miss the "good old days".

People here miss the "good old days" of NYC in the 1970s and 80s because it was "real" and "gritty". When Harlem was all-black and didn't have hipsters and yuppies moving in to drive up rents.

Older people in the 1970's and 80's missed the "good old days" of NYC in the 1950's before those damned hip-hoppers were around with their loud boom-boxes and graffiti.

Older people in the 1950's miss the "good old days" of the 20's when NYC had exciting illegal taverns, a thriving jazz culture, etc. Before the depression hit and a confused post-war generation wandered the streets causing trouble.

Older people in the 20's miss the "good old days" of the turn of the century, when industry was booming and jobs were plentiful, and a man could work hard and make something of himself.

And on and on and on ad-infinitum. Get over it people! There were no "good old days", only the here and now. You can either accept it and enjoy it for what it is or turn into a crabby grinch and complain about how great things used to be before "the so-and-so's started moving in and changing everything".
You just summarized all my thoughts and put it in an even shorter/better way

My main gripe is against transplants... Is that they try to hard.

They come from generic places within the US, and than transport/impose that generic culture on too nyc.

The result is........Nyc contemplating a wal-mart in Brooklyn . NUFF SAID

Ten years ago that would have been laughed at. S.t is getting out of hand

People were talking about the Disneyfication of times square. And now look-A big ass disney store smack dab in Times Square, next to a forever 21

It has begun,,,, and its not looking good for the real new york

transplants are taking away the goods jobs of many local new yorkers even those with Bachelors degrees like myself. So far thats my biggest complaint. I came across a guy at my job and he told at his firm its mostly transplants he wont higher New Yorkers because of attitudes and life styles.
