Skinny, Skinny Man
I’ve decided not to lament about fashion for too long, but since it’s what I’m studying, and it’s all around us, I will indulge once more. If you haven’t been around to those indie bars, rock clubs, and concerts the last few months, you’ve noticed another hot trend for the summer. The return or perhaps the climax of the skinny coloured jeans. I myself, am a fan of certain colours. I know people who own red skinnys and green skinnys. They look alright, I suppose. This morning, while waiting for the bus, I saw one of my ultra scenester neighbors sporting a black jumper with a canary yellow pair of skinny jeans.
This certainly crosses the line. I’m not going to go on and lecture for hours about the sheer fine line between too tight and not tight enough. What I do think is that it’s time we all thought about it. I’m 20somethingish. I’ve got a pretty small waist. I’m happy to admit that I wear a size 29-30. Yet, even I know the definition of too tight, and too ridiculous. Canary yellow is too ridiculous. What kind of example is this for the men of the world? That you shouldn’t actually fully develop and have any muscle because you will never fit into teenager girl’s pants? That being said, I’m currently on the look out for a pair of maroon pair to try on, just for the sake of comedy. Please help us, help you.
