"boot cut" does NOT mean skintight!
from a post i made on facebook:
NB: i do *not* claim to be massively musclebound or the owner of the perfect physique. let's just get that out the way.
MEN'S HIGH STREET FASHION. who signed off the brief that guys should now purposefully look emaciated and weak jointed? if it was you, please report to my office in five minutes. you'll need some arnica for afterwards.
i'm aware that i've often been on the inverse of what's popular with clothing styles amongst my contemporaries. in my early teens, the flavour of the times was size 106 blue bolt jeans and duvet sheet t-shirts. i erred towards levi 611s and dark shirts.
now that i'm out of my adolescence and losing a few pounds takes a bit more than a few skipped lunches and a good argument, my metabolism has caught up with me. i now train often to keep myself away from my genetic predilection towards chunkdom, the bi-product meaning that i have a more blockish figure and have inherited my mother's not inconsiderable upper body, which i manage for the most part to keep relatively firm (comfort curry notwithstanding).
over the past two years, i've noted that even formal shirts from many high street brands now have significantly narrower arms, as i've moaned about before. with 15"+ biceps i'm hardly that extraordinary, i won't be winning mr olympia anytime soon, yet i have to pre-roll my sleeves on these new shirts before putting the garment on and recently tested that i can indeed pop small amounts of stitching through flexing. silly.
today i had to return a pair of jeans to a high street brand. for a few years now i've favoured boot cut trousers since i still don't feel proud of my calves (too small) and have always disliked my behind (too big), so the slight flaring addresses both in a way i'm more confident to wear in public.
this recent pair were 'boot cut'. waist was fine (34"), inside leg was fine (also 34"), but they were basically skintight. by that i mean i was struggling to walk let alone get them past my calves / quads when putting them on and taking them off. WHY?
what is it with this carrot-fit fashion that seems to make an effort towards highlighting all the weakest parts of a person's physique? wiry legs / lots of room for gut... chicken legs and knees / untrained bottom... stick thin ankles / knobbly knee detail. i'm far from insisting MEN must be "McMANLY", but must we all now look so gangly and pathetic? does anyone REALLY find that 'choking parsnip' look so attractive?
Although these jeans are good quality, they seem to be a very small fit, my husband always has the size ordered but had to return them as they wouldn't do up.
So many jeans out there, so to find a pair I like and that fit well is pleasing. Always a chance when buying on-line but well chuffed.
