this outfit would look so much cooler if he didnt have those leggings that some people call jeans..Im not saying this doesnt look good. I can visualise a pair of slim dark grey trousers tucked into those boots, and that would add that ‘oomph’ to me.
Without doubt the overall effect of the outfit is appealing. I am pleased as punch that like half the “boys” in the east village or chelsea gallery are, he is not a.) sporting camel toes & b.) letting the backside of his jeans droop!!! At least for a young man he has the audicity to pull together a complete look. I love the mix of High/Low Vintage/New. I am giving credit where it is do…taking a risk. For thoose who are so quick to judge, have you looked in the mirror lately?? There is a reason WHY there are so many Gap and Banana Republic stores! I would have loved to see the jacket buttoned and wrapped with a brown military belt! But that’s just my two – worthless- cents! Cheers
Iâ€™m usually right there with you guys, but I have to disagree on this one. This outfit is a category five disaster. I think the jacket and boots look fab, but the denim leggings and baby doll dress t-shirt appear to have been snatched from his sisterâ€™s closet. Replace the leggings with slender, properly fitting jeans and get a menâ€™s t-shirt that is also appropriately slender and then youâ€™ve got a fantastic looking ensemble.
There are ‘skinny’ jeans and then there are ‘skin tight’ jeans. This this example falls into the latter. I think there is nothing wrong with either but the fact of the matter is that guys with bulk in the quad/calf areas risk resembling stuffed sausage legs in particularly painted on denim… which is basically what every one else thinks.
On the plus side, the boots are great and his choice of denim reflects that he knows this.
Interesting photo. This young guy has something of a Fun Boy Three look going on. I must say, I’m not into skinny jeans in any way, shape, or form (except on women). These look awfully tight to me. Very restricting. I hope this young fellow is not expecting to father children. How unfortunate.
I’m so tired of seeing young men dressed this way. The genders really can take this androgyny thing too far, and honestly, when I look at guys dressed like this, my libido disappears completely. Anyway, to speak to the (sigh) “outfit,” the boots are great, but that’s about it. Everything else, including the grooming, needs an overhaul.
The boots are supreme, and the boy deserves credit for managing to slip those leggings on, but the dress he’s wearing, what’s going on there? looks like the young fella is trying to show some cleavage. sorry, love, but you don’t have the tatas to pull it off.
he’s gorgeous and i love his boots as well as his jacket, but those jeans really aren’t working for him. if he wanted that sort of fit he should just wear leggings because the jeans look pretty awful on him. don’t get me wrong – i love skinny jeans on boys – but these are just far too tight.
umm hello, haven’t you ever heard of stretch jeans? These were all the thing in the early 90s, and, as a shopgirl at the time, I used to sell the women’s cut in the teeniest sizes to gay men who loves to go clubbing all the time.
i’ll grant you that this kid has some sense of style, but the super-tight jeans, the flauncy wide necked shirt and even the haircut are way too “irony of the eighties” for me. it’s a trend that, along with uggs and girls in baseball caps, can’t end soon enough for me.
This is an unflatteringly elfish look. The jeans are practically leggings, and while I won’t write off skinny jeans wholesale, this is not how to pull them off. The boxy upper half contrasted with those horrible jeans gives the effect of stubby legs and womanly curves!
One of my greatest pet peeves about poorly worn skinny jeans is the tendency to create an immensely unattractive cone effect in the leg. Average to slender women and men who aren’t athletic and don’t train their calves in the gym often have skinny calves (due to genetics) even if their thighs are comparatively thick, and the contrast looks downright bizarre in a t-shirt and skinny jeans.
Re: Butch and “leggings for men,” I laughed, but seriously, if they return, they better not be denim. Oh please, fashion overlords, don’t let them be denim.
Re: “Okay, can someone explain to me how it’s possible to get into jeans that skinny? 8:11 PM” Sometimes they have zippers or some small percent of spandex for stretch!
I do love the boots, though, and I feel awful whinging so much about what’s wrong with this when Sart so clearly said the picture was about the baggy shoe/tight leg contrast, which I love in women’s wear as well. Sooo…. consider this venting. ;)
(To see skinny jeans done differently, look for images of British pop singer Mika: virtually a stick figure and apparently eight feet tall, he wears them quite well.)
Such a conservative crowd! Stretch jeans have been worn by punk rockers since, what, the late 70s? (Usually in black, though.) This look is fun and appealing – maybe not for the country club, though, eh? Perhaps that’s part of the point, after all.
Odd, but consisten volume can be a success, in this case however, the extremity of the jeans does not compliment the rest of the outfit well. Fantastic boots though. Maybe this person just felt like he wanted to be on the street half-naked with a pair of amazing boots. —–Talk about the true skin-tight jeans.
