I promoted some raves in the 90s. I had some JNCOs.

Ha, glad I didn't win!

I can't complain. I had a roof over my head, food in my belly, and the ability to play sports (but not something expensive like snowboarding). That's enough for any kid.

JNCO's, UFO Raver pants, and Breakdowns were absurd. Oner person per leg.

Element Carpenter jeans were great though.

So yeah fairly certain the one-leg-up part came from that.
This is why I love skinny leg jeans, especially the stretchy ones. I ripped up many flares and boot cuts in my bicycle chains. All my bikes are too legit for chain guards. It took me a long time to jump on the skinny leg bandwagon. i can't go back to regular jeans cause my pant legs are safe from bike chains with the skinny jeans,

Being in a winter climate it's good to have jeans that fit in boots and don't look stupid too. No more stepping on the bottom of the jeans and no soaking up puddles.

Don't try to justify your passion for skinny jeans MTN. Nobody here is buying the 'bike chain' excuse. They make products for that if its a huge problem, you know. Never really had one with my boot cut straight jeans.

What happens when skinnies become gay in 2 years?

I had JNCO and Zonz back in grade school (the 1991-1999 1st through 8th was my age group) and I'm glad the trend is to skinny stretch pants now. They work way better than the baggies of the 90s though I still have baggy and skinny outerwear.

Slouchies, or whatever they're called, look f'cking sweet ... I'm definitely going to adopt this trend so I can, as shredlife so eloquently stated, flag down other flamers in large groups of people.

The worst style, IMO, was the the boot cut AE/Abercrombie/Hollister/Gap etc. fad of 1999 through mid 2000's. At least they were low-rise so they didn't look completely goofy.

Those are still in in most places (and countries). That's cowboy style bro. bootcut straight leg ftw. Not too thin, not too fat.

Nothing worse than seeing fat (or even thick muscled) people in skinny jeans.

It's like seeing huge 250lb weight lifters wearing those small white sneaker shoes (euro style). They look like the elephants from Fantasia.

I get why farmhands and dudes who wear boots or work shoes wore boot cuts but every suburban kid was rocking them at the turn of the century with their Doc Martens. And the flares kept getting wider and wider to the point of ridiculousness. I dunno, I always found my straight legs and tapers did fine with my Wolverines at work.

As a recovering college frat boy, yeah, what those brands referred to as "bootcut" in the early/mid-2000's was really more of a "bellbottom". I'd challenge anyone to dig up a pair of their dad's jeans from circa 1977, and match them with a pair of A&F "bootcut" jeans from 2001. I bet they're the exact same.

But there's nothing wrong with a traditional bootcut, a la Levi's 527.
