Pants are back baby! As someone who has eschewed jeans for so long, what does this mean for me? Well, for starters, it means that I'll no longer get dirty looks for wearing corduroys. On the other hand, if everyone stops wearing jeans all the time, I'll be more like everybody else, which is never a good thing. Let's see how this one plays out.
But as men grow more at ease articulating how they want to look, the limitations of jeans become clear: you are always that guy in jeans. What connoted rebel status in the ’50s and cool status in the late ’90s now merely looks safe.
Hat tip to Mom.
