Skinny jeans....yes or no?Page 5 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

'Skinny jeans are for the young and I judge them on how I used to
look in them...so most look bloody awful.'

Pleeeeeeeease!How can you say that!The movement of the body
and all it's anatomy is not in any sense "bloody awful' with the
correct figure!Shape and torso with a 'long,lingering and stimulating
glance' is not in any sense a "perversion' but an admiration of what
is artistic and naturally exuisite in the undulant movement
of the human body.This surely covers all age groups and not simply
the young; you may be sorely mistaken about the assessment
of your figure at that age!

Give me a well structured and elegantly dressed body in lieu
of bland and abject nakedness (so boooooooring)anyday.

We "maths geeks" are intrinsically interested in artform and
creativity and are 'bonded' to the beauty and structures
inherent in nature;anybody who attempts to separate or
pigeon-hole us into a category of 'study' is attempting
pseudology on a grand scale.

^^^ It sounds to me like not one of those students had a speck of talent, imagination or ability if they couldn't find it in themselves to draw because the model was 'skinny'. How utterly ridiculous! Not one of them stayed and found something in that model's shape or posture to capture them artistically? Nothing in the way light and shade played across the features of the model's body? What a bunch of losers. Either your friend is telling porkies or the life drawing teacher at that uni was a untalented hack.... so many wannabes abound in artistic circles. It's enough to make you barf.

Anyway, skinny jeans, yeah... I don't think anyone should wear them unless they actually are skinny. It is a crime against aethetic sensibilities to squeeze them on over mountains of fat. Call me a visionary, but personally, I dream of a utopian world where everyone only ever wears Snuggies. In that case, jeans could be done away with forever more.

Funny thing about skinny bodies though.. (and am not saying I have any regard either way for them).. a friend of mine once told me about a life drawing class at Uni where the model ended up being skinny... they all walked out... they complained there was nothing to draw... no valleys of flesh.. no round curves.. etc.. just a thought..

well they musn't of been very good artists then..
even I can draw stick figures...

Wash your mouth out! That would do away with half my wardrobe. Can't see myself mowing, mucking out sheds, or clambering over fallen trees and rocks down at the creek whilst wearing a snuggie. Unless they come in denim? Mind you, wouldn't like to try doing those things in skinny jeans either...circulation is kind of relevant when you're trying to lead an active lifestyle.

Pete,
You've got me worried now. I'll retract that silly dig from a previous post, OK.

Seriously though . . I've been out tonight to continue my skinnies research.
I found a lively hotel that looked like a good prospect for skinnies fans.

As I entered the bar, lo and behold, there was a beautiful gal sitting on a bar stool, alone finishing a rather fancy aperitif.
I approached, introduced myself, and asked . . . "How do you get into those jeans?"
She replied . . . "Well, you could start by buying me a drink . . ."

*Gulp !*

Hi:Faux Pa

Thanks for your kind comment;this IS the most serious and invigorating thread
THAT I HAVE PURSUED on this forum!Imagine what the repercussions would
have been if THAT dreaded ensemble ever attracted even a speck of interest.
At that particular moment in space and time my thoughts were fixed on such fine
lines as Black wool pants tight fitting waistwise and flared at the bottom with
dark cherry slim-fitting(but not 'body')shirt with relevent accou'trements.

Style and grace were then a mixture of both English and Continental and Nicola Di Bari(sooooocool!) ruled!The San Remo Festival was eagerly awaited and savoured!

In Melbourne Carlton WAS it!!!!For me anyway!It was the place to be and the girls,
duly accompanied by their brothers or appropriate chaperones were easy to engage with.It was the centre of the Continental 'scene' and the dances there were sooooo
romantically 'delicious' despite the ever watchful eyes of the minders.

We circulated around very slim girls;they were usually 16inch to 20 inch waisted girls with jet Black long straight hair and very slim bodies and 4 ft 8 inches
in height and I personally was considered tall in comparison at 5ft 7inches.

The girls were dressed then in standard tight-fitting dark (Red) polo top pullovers
and Black tight stretch pants and similar flared bottoms but the Dior perfume(or Chanel no 5) and sensual 'presence' whilst dancing is a 'moment in time' that will
remain embellished in my memory till eternity.

What has happened to Continental dress styles in Australia!!!!!!

Returning to the relevancy of this thread;A very interesting addition (variation) to Black skinny jeans are the horizontally 'creased' (frontal)crotch to knees which makes
them look like shorts worn over tights and certainly enhances the 'appropriate' figure
wearing it!The slim body wearing a dark Red leather jacket over a contrasting Black
silk shirt which must slightly 'hang' is an absolute MUST'!



She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

'Gawd . . who started this thread anyway'.

Dunno.......Dunno.......but I reckon it was a stroke of genius;whoever t'was!
Reckon t'will last 'till xmas t'least.

That Horse of HILLY'S......I am thinking maybe for naamah to consider training it
for next year's Caloundra Cup!I know of a trainer who is pending retirement
and with the appropriate medication subcutaneously administered to it (JUST PRIOR to the commencement of the race) the 'killing' in the bookie ring may be very advantageous profitwise.I backed the winner this year and on a heavy track it (REGGIE)won by OVER 5 LENGTHS!Paid $5.20!Food for thought!
I realise that there is a restriction thing in place but naamah said s'ok!

Sigh.......Sigh............I wish you did not mention that dreaded ensemble again!

Please .......Please......I have been free of medication for at least 50 years and wish to remain so indefinitely!

Old Stewball was a racehorse, and I wish he were mine
He never drank water, he always drank wine

His bridle was silver, and his mane it was gold
And the worth of his saddle has never been told

Oh the fairgrounds were crowded, and Stewball was there
But the betting was heavy on the bay and the mare

As they were approaching, about half way around
The gray mare she stumbled and fell to the ground

And away out yonder, ahead of them all
Came a-prancing and a-dancing, my noble Stewball

I bet on the gray mare and I bet on the bay
If I'd bet on old Stewball, I'd be a free man today

Oh the hoot owl she hollers, and the turtle dove moans
I'm a poor boy in trouble. I'm a long way from home

Old Stewball was a racehorse, and I wish he were mine
He never drank water, he always drank wine

Errrrm....he's 30 years old, was rescued from the glue factory, and has to have daily honey sandwiches with anti-inflammatory powder hidden inside to cope with his arthritis. You can paint white skinny jeans onto his legs and call him Fine Cotton... but that hoss is well past his trophy winning days....even for Caloundra. My sheep would have more of a crack at it.

Peter...regarding all this passion you feel for skinny jeans and fashion generally...you should start a fashion advice column. The way you say zaazah or whatever it was...gives you distinct credibility.

. . that has me slightly worried.

Really . . I should obviously hand over all my Skinny jeans research material to you. You'd do it far more justice than I ever could.
Of course, in my case, the 'research' was a pretty transparent ruse . . merely a cover for my real intent . . frivolously checking out girls backsides . .

'Did Stewball wear skinny jeans then??

No;but y'know Peter,Paul and Mary did,so did Joan Baez on occasions........and Bob
was most adept at jumping nimbly off the stage with 'em.

The relevence of the thread to stewball was subtle subject to an extrapolation akin to a psychedelic experience that emanated from the over assimilation of percolated coffee;suffice to say that the translation of such subterfuge to print has been exposed for the creative 'crap' that it was (but it seemed ok at that time........).

'Fine Cotton' was really 'bold personality' and THEY indulged in a SWAP;
My methods ARE different!

As for a fashion column;Naah......!Prefer reading Byron,Burns,Thackeray,Khayyam,
etc.................And the word is zaa zaa ZOOO.......like 'pzazz'!

Faux pa: Ya need ta 'no the genesis of my argument;we must develop our own style
of fash!Men must indicate their likes and dislikes to 'em shrew!Keeps 'em occupied!

Since very young, for some inexplicable reason my interest was directed towards
such endeavours and even now my adult daughter will 'never' go out without my acquiescenc with regard to dress sense...........subsequent to several bouts of annoyance at my............................... 'NAH!

Regards your research and intrusions is it wise?many a man has 'fallen' for
such idolatory endeavours and later down the track find themselves
totally and incongruously "eating out of the hand'' of the target!


Seriously though,skinny jeans with creases in the 'correct' spots create fashion interest and I am often reminded of the "grunge look" of the nineties..........wore 'em
often with the backsides and knees cut delicately and effectively.........................

AH........but that is another story altogether!

Fashion is all about getting the right combinations.

Have just been discussing this vitally important subject over dinner with my daughter and her GF and it was unanimously agreed that the worst combination is flannelet shirts tucked into King Gee short worn in combination with white socks and sandles.

The skinny jeans in the '70s were high waisted and the coathanger trick was a given, my favourites were Staggers with zips at the ankles and a bow.... YUK, my biggest problem after a night out was trying to pull my boots off, sometimes they just stayed on for the night 'cos mine didn't have zips

I return to the forums and blow me down it's still the skinny jeans thread ! Peter 4444 seemed to be saying Byronic stuff about 'walking in beauty as the night' but surely, with difficulty, in skinny jeans ? The bottom part of me looks skinny in skinny jeans but underneath the floppy [mandatory] top is a different story .. oh the pain in squashing HIPPY BITS into skinny jeans ... sometimes I snip a bit out either side and it makes all the difference . Who invented skinny jeans anyhow ?

"Peter 4444 seemed to be saying Byronic stuff about 'walking in beauty as the night' "

Seriously;this is perhaps the most difficult response I have EVER had to comment on!

"Byronic stuff" indeed!!!!!!

You are referring to the greatest poet and writer that ever drew breath and
his words will resound throughout the universe ad infinitum!

Imagine a world without him!The personal trauma and torment would render me powerless to even wake up each day leave alone savour it for the beauty that
BYRON AND BYRON ALONE inculcates in my soul!

And you refer to his persona with a 'byronic stuff!'

If ever a retraction was required,THIS IS IT!

For the unbelievers this peer of the realm (of His glorious majesty George111)
wrote poetry,visited many countries and wrote extensively on the real issues
concerning human psyche and love with deep insight!This flamboyant
and brilliant person is a cult figure to sooooooo many and to refer to him
in such a way has torn away a piece of my soul.................but only for
a few seconds becauseI have washed my mouth out on everyone's behalf
to dispel the anathema felt by those who savour his creativity;many of whom are participants of this forum.

Seek roses in December, ice in June;
Hope constancy in wind, or corn in chaff;
Believe a woman or an epitaph,
Or any other thing that ’s false, before
You trust in critics.

(Lord byron!)

it's all Beau Brummels doing.... the thin legged black pants, the dark suit, and the short cropped hairstyles,no make up..... the power dressing...

prior to that the men of court dressed up more than the women do today, with more freedom of choice... like the males of most species.. gaudy and colourful... big hair,etc.....

yep BB changed all that.. and men have been stuck ever since.. odd really.....

footballers in Tuxes and armani..... .... a stupider sight as I have ever seen , fashion wise....

Wasn't it brooding old Byron who had a 'thing' with the woman poet George Sand ? ... just asking . I, too ,have the flu and random bits of knowledge keep floatin in and quickly out of my brain . And , if I'm not mistaken , there was such a thing as 'making a leg' wasn't there Peter4444 or was that later? I'm not making fun of broody old Byron ... it's just that soppy romantic images leave me cold . Like 'The sage was withered on the lake .... and NO BIRDS SING ' ... er ,must admit that is good stuff ! I bet Byron would have worn skinny jeans , he was in love eno' with himself for that . We should bring back films about the romantic poets , skinny legs n all . Only pulling your leg Peter ... heh heh .

beachippy:Men wear and always wore pants!It's women that copied us!
And skinny pants were always popular!I personally possess a Black pair
with the proper creases down to the knees which I wear with a dark Red
denim jacket and a Black short sleeved silk shirt and I did not need
acqueiscence from my daughter or any shrew to wear 'em!

All duels were fought with 'em and a man was a man!

Nope!It WAS a (stick insect!)shrew named Lamb.

Byron never brooded.........all thought he possessed was BRILLIANT!

THE STICK INSECT was responsible for any maleficence associated with
Him because she pursued him to the ends of the earth;thus shortening his
creativity and lifespan.


It was the right and custom of peers of the realm to write prose and
literature and He was never given the peace and tranquility to do
so..............
