Around the time I was 24 or 25 I took a look at my wardrobe and noticed my clothes were pretty over-sized. I had t-shirts and dress shirts that were XL or even XXL when I really wore a Large. I also had jeans that were 2 to 3 sizes bigger than what I usually wore. So I rebuilt my repertoire (my gear) with clothes that actually fit, not snug fitting but a more mature look. Around that time I was really into designer jeans, you would see me rocking Diesel and Paper Denim jeans all day 24/7. Getting new jeans was at the top of my list. So I did it. Within the next 2 or 3 years my jean stash was outta control. I’m talking stacks and stacks of jeans.
So you’re probably thinking to yourself, “where is Rolsuno going with this story?” Well what I’m trying to say is I purchased new jeans because all my old ones were way to big, I wanted to look my age and I wanted my jeans to fit and not hang off my ass anymore. When i say “FIT” I’m saying jeans that leave room in the right place so my balls can breath and room in the leg area. Not fit meaning Super Tight like how so many dudes are wearing them now. Which leads to this question. WHERE THE HECK DID THIS FAD COME FROM? Someone please tell me and let me know. I know that Emo rockers been wearing tight pants or jeans for a while, but when did it hit the urban scene? You can easily point out the hipsters in the urban scene because of their super tight fitting jeans. I like to call them hip hop hipsters. Or what about bike messengers or the bikers that ride around in Fixie Bikes, why are their jeans super tight? I was told from a bike rider they wear tight fitting jeans because it’s easier for them to pedal with tight jeans than wearing baggy jeans that get in the way of pedaling. Why not wear biking shorts or biking pants? If I were a biker I would wear more athletic clothes such as shorts or biking pants rather than wearing jeans. Just because biking is a sport and who really wears jeans when doing an athletic activity. That’s like me going to the gym to play ball in slacks. It’s not a good look. Sometimes I even think my jeans are tight but not as tight as I see other dudes wearing. In my mind I’m thinking to myself, “damn are those your sisters jeans.”
You can see this fad everywhere, especially in the hip hop music industry. When one person thinks of hip hop you think of baggy jeans that are hanging off your ass. Now rappers are wearing jeans that fit with a little bit of a sag. Look at Jim Jones and Juelz Santana. When they wear jeans they look like they are wearing woman jeans because it’s super tight, but they still keep it “street” because they still sag the jeans.
So to all readers please let me know how SUPER TIGHT jeans became fashion for men. And if I offended any readers I say SORRY, but please lets try and leave the tight jeans for the chicks because it just looks right…..
