Fashion Trends: Skinny Jeans For Men Are Back This Winter


Skinny jeans for men are back.  Stylist/blogger Justin Livingston (wearing Diesel) shows men how to wear skinny jeans this winter in his blog, Oh, Munrowe.  Actually, skinny jeans are his staple jeans fit, as there are pictures of him wearing them throughout the year.  His style reminds us of runway trends at Burberry Prorsum, Paul Smith and Raf Simons, when oversized coats were worn over slimmer pant silhouettes.  And, it’s no secret that women don’t mind seeing men in skinny jeans, especially when it’s pulled together well with some great wintry staples.  Ready to put your old skinny jeans back into rotation?  Here are some ideas—à la Oh, Munrowe—on how to style your jeans.

“After emigrating from Italy to America in the middle of the nineteenth century, jeans came home after the Second World War bringing with them the image and values of the American dream. Prosperity, opportunity, a feeling of liberation, hope: the myth seemed to have been cut out of the same indigo-dyed cloth…”

3. Gap 1969 Denim invites you to take a trip to downtown LA and walk through their studio, to see where the magic happens.

4. PPQ and Lee Jeans are joining forces for a 10th anniversary capsule collection, debuting during London Fashion Week. On the menu? Skinny jeans and embellishment.
