Skinny Jeans Man
Perhaps it comes down the reason some believe that humans are on their earth – reproduction. If we take into account the findings of a 1986 scientific study that suggested wearing tight pants or underwear could lower a man’s sperm count – it really does beg the question, why put yourselves through such pain? What possible advantages could skinny jeans give to its wearer?
But of course, fashion has never been about advantages of health, or safety. After all, what advantages do high heels bring considering they’re a proven danger? Why did women in ancient China bind their feet? Why were Victorian women wearing corsets that bruise their ribcage?
Is the simple answer to all that (and to why men wear skinny jeans) is because we’re all slaves to fashion? And believe it or not, men are just as impressionable to the latest fashion trends as women, even if they don’t admit to it.
