Great fit and look, very comfortable. Like them much better than jeans I've paid four or five times as much. Rated 5 out of 5 by laurence from great great quality will buy another no faults at all would recommend Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by rogun from Nice, but not for me I didn't realize Uniqlo still carried raw denim, but these selvedge jeans in navy do appear raw.
They also seem to be doused in starch, so that may be why. These are nicer than I expected. Unfortunately, they're also more skinny than I expected. I'm used to Uniqlo's sizing increasing regularly, so I suspected these wouldn't be so slim. I suspected wrong and they're too slim for me.
The rise is also too low for me, although I always have that problem with Uniqlo jeans. I don't mind a low rise, but these are on the extreme end. Overall, they're nice jeans, if they fit you. I'm a slim guy, but they're still too small for me. Some notable fashion trends related to music have featured tapered-leg jeans.
Perhaps one of the most famous male performers to ever wear tapered jeans was Elvis Presley. Later, these jeans became popular among glam rock and rockabilly aficionados in the s. Punk fashion embraced the tapered trend, often opting for tapered jeans that were faded and torn. Acid-washed, skin-tight tapered jeans appeared in the s, when heavy metal bands made them popular through music videos.
Some tapered jeans feature an ankle so slim that the manufacturer must place a zipper at the ankle so that the opening can fit over the foot. Skinny jeans are a type of tapered jean that features a tight fit throughout in addition to a narrow ankle opening. They are sometimes made so tight that they must be constructed with a spandex blend for additional stretch.
There are many different terms that can be used to describe tapered leg jeans. The use of any of these names usually correlates with age, since the terms relate to fashion styles that last no longer that one generation.
Some people use the word "pegs" to describe jeans with a tapered leg, while others prefer the name "drainpipes. I have seen waddling girls too and wonder how they could possibly be comfortable. I actually do wear skinny jeans and the key to get a good fit is to not get real jeans.
Basically you need something with a good portion of spandex or some other stretchable material in it. The stretch skinny jeans are way more comfortable and are a lot like wearing well-fitting tights.
If you don't want the painted on tapered jeans look, your best off going with a straight leg jean. I still love my old boot-cut jeans the best, but alas, I will wait until they come back into fashion before wearing them again. My one friend can barely sit in her pants because they are too tight, and she walks a bit awkwardly. I know she thinks they are super stylish, but she waddles when she wears them. I tried a pair of skinny jeans on, and even in a size that "fits" they are still terribly uncomfortable.
I feel like if I were to try and sit cross-legged or in a relaxed pose they would sever my blood supply. I suppose it is just one fashion trend I am not going to get in on. MissCourt Post 4 I bought a pair of skinny jeans awhile ago -- I just never had the nerve to wear them outside.
I have a big rear end and I always feel like it just makes it worse. Whenever I wear them, it's like I'm balancing on tiny little tiptoes. Flared jeans or ripped jeans are way better to me.
They balance out my figure better and I can wear fuzzy boots with them. The ripped ones kind of break up the solid color and show a little skin without being short. Sometimes it just takes some time to get used to a different style. It usually depends on what type of shoe I want to wear when I choose what style of jean I am going to wear.
If I want to wear a pair of boots, I will go with a pair that has more flare than a straight leg. On the other hand, I have some really great shoes that look awesome with a straight leg.
If the hardest decision I have to make in one day is what kind of jeans or shoes I am going to wear, then it is a pretty good day. She loves the tapered look and I probably would to if I looked as good in them as she does. I think the best jeans are the ones that you feel most comfortable in.
If somebody else thinks you look great in a pair of jeans, but you don't feel very comfortable, I don't think it's worth the trouble.
Some people look good in any style of jeans they wear, but I am not one of those people. I am not very tall, so I need to find jeans that make me look taller. Whenever I put on a pair of tapered jeans I feel like they make my legs look stubby, and therefore I appear even shorter than I already am.
