NUDIE JEANS High Kai Skinny Jeans in Rinsed. Available at TOBI.
Already seen on the streets of Los Angeles, young men stroll down the streets echoing a trend recently illustrated by the Alessandro Dell’Acqua Milan Autumn 2009/2010 fashion show. In their ankle length slim leg skinny jeans, hip-length jackets which reveal an extra long, cover-your-assets shirt; dressed up with a pair of smart leather loafers or oxfords (sometimes sans socks), it’s a winter look that guys can easily transition their wardrobe into the early spring, not-yet-warmer days. The torso-elongating trend seems to at first signify a visual shortening of the legs; however, the ankle length jeans, which can be rolled up to desired length, ultimately creates a leggier presentation. The “high-water” look can be both functional and advantageous to those looking to feel and look a couple of inches taller. And, yes, skinny jeans do make your feet look bigger. I’m just saying.
