Masculinity Redefined: The Ex-Girlfriend Jean

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Levis Ex-Girlfriend Jean

Manolo says, from Levis

Remember the girlfriend with the great style? Here’s a tribute to her — a fit that’s super-snug allover, an update of the five-pocket classic that’s as skinny as it gets.

The bad news is that she dumped you for the manly man who looks like the lumberjack and wears the classic 501s.

The good news is that the Levi-Strauss Company feels your pain, Emo Boy.

You know who would like these ridiculous pantaloons?

This person…

Via.

    Hmm…can’t see the last picture. Please do tell who would wear such sissy jeans.




  2. Manolo the Shoeblogger Says:

    What you are perhaps missing is the semi-humorous comedy video in the style of MTV True Life with the title “I’m Obsessed with Skinny Jeans Even Though It Took Away My Privates.”




  3. Kate B. Says:

    I finally watched the video and ended up doing a spit-take onto my laptop screen!




  4. Victor Says:

    Holy mackerel. Someone at Levi-Strauss has been smoking crack.




  5. Jennie Says:

    Christian Sciriano much?




  6. Nariya Says:

    It’s bad enough that women have to be subjected to this trend. Can’t even sit down in them.




  7. Rachel of Cyberia Says:

    I like seeing well-fitting jeans on a man (I try not to look at boys, dirty old lady that I am), but if they’re this skinny, he just looks uncomfortable and scrawny, and a tad heroin-junkie.




  8. Klara Says:

    Haha nice!




  9. Livia Says:

    Do they really think that men in large numbers can be persuaded to assume this position of fashion victimhood? Next thing you know, some designer will try to sell them short-sleeved chunky sweaters.




  10. daisyj Says:

    It’s interesting how the idea of women wearing masculine-styled clothes passes without comment, but a man wearing feminine clothes makes him the subject of universal ridicule.

    What’s next, jeggings for men? Meggings? Luv the video of Walter!
