Maybe this will sound weird but I really hate the feminization of men/boys and this new style of "Skinny" jeans and T's and coats that look like women's double breasted dress coats for men is really gettign to me. I think they are trying to have a British/beatles thing going (maybe it's modeled after a celebrity?).

I don't recall the specific look you're talking about, but I agree that fashion should have a general divide between the sexes.

I do not like skinny jeans on men/teens but I find them SO CUTE on my little boys...but I agree with the whole coat thing. My 5.5yr won't be wearing any skinny jeans, just my 3yr. I think the reason I liked them on him, was he finally didn't look like he was drowning in his jeans lol.

I am completely not a fan of skinny jeans. We tend towards boot cut for all of us or the flare style for peanut. I never thought the skinny jeans on men were designed to be feminine--to me they strike me more as part of the 80s comeback and almost scream to be tight rolled :P In fact, any time i want a giggle, i go look through jc penny at the trendy looks--welcome back shoulder pads, random rhinestones, and zippers where there ought not be zippers! So i guess i just find that the skinny jeans just strike me as a fashion fad that won't last long (fingers crossed) and will lead to some awkward yearbook pics that are cringed at years down the road :p

I never considered a situation like that. What do they do when they're old enough for jobs making fast food? I suppose they'll all need hair nets or have to put their hair back under hats...

NOw see, I'm VERY fond of long hair on guys. MY husband's got shoulder-length hair, and I adore it.

However, this "choppy" look with the hair in the eyes, all emo and black eyeliner?

No thanks. Not for me.
