    Well, I use to lift weights with them, so they stay in shape. And in case this wouldn't be enough, I can get myself this brilliant invention:

    The synthetic perfume materials are supposed to enhance and support the use of natural raw materials, not to replace them, nor in any way to beat them off the market. The synthetic chemicals present a certain challenge to nature, and the perfumer can assist nature in her fight by utilizing the synthetic materials to the advantage of the natural raw materials. (S.

    And, to get back on topic, it is for sure more healthy than skinny jeans.
    Hahaha! LOL with your answers.
    Very true. When our parts stay in higher temperatures like wearing tight clothes or underwear it causes infertility. They have to keep in a lower temperature than the rest of the body and that's why they are somehow "separated" to the body.

    Like what happens to autochthon women's breasts? LOL. We can end up with a beanbag between the legs. Not even necessary a chair to sit down. It's also an easy way to know the floor temperature.

    I think skinny jeans look more form fitting for a lady which also looks better to me.

    If I can remember well the paper label that came in my 511, it is slim fit too. But it gets a bit tight in my calves. I bought two pairs and was lucky to just wear one. Had to trade the other pair for a 514. Now I had to send the 514 to adjust a little the legs since they were too large.

    I think I know the feeling when I try out tight pants. Now I know why some singers sing so shrill!

    Its good to know what you thought. Good point raised; skinny jeans definitely look more appropriate for women.

    Absolutely not. My waist isn't thick, but my thighs are, necessitating wider leg openings.

    And I've only found three kinds of jeans that fit me and come in an inseam long enough... my favorite is the Rock Revival Relaxed Straight (not the Relaxed Straight 17), followed by the normal straight-leg jeans from the same brand.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    Almost like me. But beyond thighs my calves are thick. I tried a relaxed straight from CK. Liked the shape, not the jeans.

    Skinny jeans look best on those with long slender legs. They look awful like sausage casings on shorter or muscular legs.

    Laughing hard here! YES! I feel like a sausage wearing skinny jeans! Or like I'm going to implode! It's an odd sensation.

    I used to like the search for a good pair of jeans. Not now with everything being skinny. That's why I can hardly wait for this trend to pass.

    I have massive calves so slim is skinny for me. I like slim but am not a fan of jeans that taper much below the calves, this part should be looser or it really looks like girl's jeans and imo it makes most guys look bad.

    Your calves might be like mine! And they are wide just where the pieces start getting more tight.
    Very taper ones really look like girls' imo too. I also like them looser in this part. I think some parts of shoes look better covered and very tight cuffs make our feet look way bigger.

    I'm slightly behind the fashion times. I've noticed that tighter fitting jeans, not quite skinny jeans though, work well with todays fashions. Also, anything slightly loose fitting (ie classic fit slacks), is looking grandpa status in a way. So I tried on some tighter fitting Levi's as well as some straight legged/slim slacks.

    Nah, man. Yeah, I like to work out my legs too so usually I fill out my jeans well enough, but this tight stuff...very uncomfortable. More importantly, from a profile point of view it didn't work for me at all.

    I think people should stick with what complements their body type. Skinny jeans are in fashion but they don't look good on everyone.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    No jeans, at all. Prefer skirts or dresses. Haven't worn jeans in years. I don't miss them.

    Have learned to adapt. Because they seem like all that I see. The ones that I do own are just slim fit and their stretchy pants LOL. These allow me to still function normally but getting my wallet and phone out can be difficult.

    Tried some more jeans today, and... I took a look at them out of the body and found, "Oh, great, these seem not skinny". All the ones I liked and tried were skinny.
    All the SAs were wearing skinny jeans and in them they look right. The brand know how to dress their SAs and most people don't know how to properly use a skinny piece, what can make them look awful. I would say that like we have risky, bold fragrances, there are bold and risky clothing and for the clothing the mistake is more "visible". I try to avoid these mistakes and usually these risky pieces regarding garnments.
    Yes, people should buy what complements their body type indeed.

    True. I'm not judging people who wear skinny jeans. I'm judging the garnment and how it fits people in general and specially, me. Of course the are exceptions just like for almost everything in life, but the death.

    I read somewhere jeans, specially the tight ones cause cellulites. I can't assure if it's true though.
    Skirts and dresses look better.

    They are all we see indeed! When I was trying, I told the SA I could hardly wait for this trend to pass. He told me it won't pass, it came to stay. Then I felt like What?! Can't belive this!
    Stretchy are the way to go. I bought an awesome skinny one around 3 weeks ago. Despite the fact that its more tight over my calves, it's touch is incredible! It has a texture of a sweatshirt with the look of jeans. It doesn't make me feel uncomfortable. I have other pairs of regular stretchy and they are my favorites. Having elastane is becoming a rule when buying.

    I found Buffalo David Button six x the only jeans I wear. They are slim but stretchy and they are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn. Look great with dress shoes and my cowboy boot collection. I call them skinny jeans because to me they are but they are actually slim fit high quality material. I catch them at Macy's on sale occasionally.

    I liked those jeans. Actually I like them a bit more adjusted to the body. Today I was wearing one more tight on the thighs and hips and more loose below the knees.
    I love boots. Specially old-looking ones (like in the link below).They look so good! Unfortunately I can't wear them as much as I wish. My feet ache so much after wearing tough footwear and they are pronated. I need to use shoes that correct them in order I arrive home feeling less pain.

    Those are classic straight leg, not slim or skinny. Approaching Dad jeans but not quite since the top block is more fitted.

    Yes vote for me, but it depends on your build.

    They look ok on me, even in my 40s, but I'm pretty lithe.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
