I got a real beef with the jeans industry. Why can’t you make a good jean that works on guys with muscular thighs and a meaty ass? And why they gotta be so goddamn expensive?
God, shopping for jeans sucks right now. Absolutely nothing fits me right now. Everything is still geared for skinny jean couture, for some ungodly reason.
I can’t wear skinny jeans. One of my legs can’t even wear skinny jeans. And even if I upsized the waist in order to get in a pair, they are unflattering as fuck because the inseam length is exaggerated, and the ass looks like you are dragging around a loaded diaper.
Plus they don’t go over my calves.
And don’t even get me started on how stupidly low the pockets are being placed!
If I do manage to find a “roomier cut” jean, thencrotch is low, it looks like the leg hole’s are eating my feet and I look 40 MORE pounds overweight.
And then there are the slouchy jeans, which perpetually look like you need to give them a good, upward yank. Which makes me uncomfortable just to look at!
Seriously, when did the skinny/slouchy jeans looks become popular? And why?? The cuts are definitely NOT flattering. I mean, c’mon people!
To illustrate, I give you three choices of men in jeans….
But just try finding a pair like “A” nowadays! Grrrrrr!
OH! And jeans cost about 8 bucks to make. There’s like 4 dollars in cloth, and 4 dollars in Chinese child labor there. But jeans companies charge us like 80 bucks (and that’s for the inexpensive shit!). Ain’t no WAY I’m paying over 100 for jeans! Fuck THAT! Not even if they fit like Chris Hemsworth!
And I’m not even touching on the excessive use of “stretch denim”. What a fucking abortion. I’m sorry, but any jeans with over 0.5% “stretchy fabric” look like those goddamn pajama jeans.
So, here I am– getting low on my denim supply, with no prospects looming on the horizon.
