“I’ve seen advertisements for those skinny pants, but I’ve never actually seen anyone wearing them until today,” my grandfather said yesterday night, when he came to his grandson’s concert. “They must have a zipper hidden somewhere.”
It was an excuse for me to reflect afresh on skinny jeans. Each year I’ve wondered if the fad would fade, but the denim seems to shrink tighter with every season, and everybody’s wearing them. Except for me. Am I the only one who has reservations about skinny jeans?
