I wear skinny jeans because I think they look cool and are as comfortable as hell. But whenever I got out wearing them I always get called emo (unless I'm at a gig or something).

People saying I'm emo probably couldn't be further from the truth, but I get abused anyway. I think people should be able to wear whatever the hell they want and not be put into a social 'cliche' or whatever. I just wondered what you thought.

So do you wear skinnys, and do you think they're emo?

skinny jeans aren't emo they are homosexual, everyone you've been talking to is confused

EDIT: are they actually comfortable?, because if i have jeans that are a little tight, its uncomfortable all day

Just wear whatever you got man...

And if it's guys with short hair calling you emo ask em why gay guys on T.V and in Movies etc have short hair...Cause obviously if you have short hair your gay then right?

Yeah, they are. A pain to get off, but you actually get a good amount of crotch room and they feel nice

the way guys started wearing those tight jeans was, they started wearing girls jeans, thus they are gay, i don't see how you can argue against that

Right, so every rockstar in the 80s was a homosexual was he?

Idiot.
#18
i only wear skinnies, but I'm a girl

Does it still count? I don't own any other type of jeans. But I do associate skinnies with homosexuality and on the right person with being emo.
#19
If they are skinny-ish boot cut, I wear 'em. Seems rocker.
But if they are all up on my ankles, no, never.

I have people in my Graphics course that wear them. And, they aren't fans of guitar-based music except Indie.

I never got/get the "I am wearing my sisters jeans today" or the drainpipe thing, but then people can do whatever they want!

I know I don't feel right unless I'm wearing my discontinued baggy fit bullhead jeans .

Now baggy fit is "out of style" so they don't sell them anymore

they do, just buy them the next size up :P

but aye, I don't think they're emo or girly to be honest, most emo's wear them but Indie kids wear them, Mod's used to wear them. I personally don't like them cos they look uncomfortable around the old meat n two veg but yeah, each to their own.

well its sort of a mass label. since most 'emo' kids wear skinnys, the minority will be labeled the same way. just gotta go with the flow.

What the hell...

I know loads of people who wear girls jeans and aren't gay. Hell, I wear girls jeans and I'm not entirely gay. Sometimes it fits people better.

alot of thrash metal bands used to wear skinny jeans like metallica and shyt. Cannibal corpse used to wear skinny jeans back when they were younger. I went to a down show recently and Rex Brown was wearing skinny jeans
I want to go as far to the edge without going over. Out on the edge, you can see all kinds of different things.
#37
yes, i wear them.
i hate baggy clothes and i don't think they're emo. i think it's more Rockish'.
The Rolling Stones wore them, The Clash, The Sex Pistols
and numerous other bands wore them.
just wear what you like.

wham, bam, thank you ma'am!

I don't care about skinny jeans, but guys wearing girls jean are gay. You must not have balls if you where girls jeans. I mean really theres no room for you sack or dick.

Skinny jeans look stupid.

Why would you wear clothes that EVERYBODY else is wearing.

My advice: if you don't want to get beaten up avoid skinny jeans like the plague.

Very very very few people can pull off skinny jeans. Most people are either too skinny (in which case they look like they have sparrow legs and are a muggers dream) or are too fat and look absolutely horrific.

Chances are, if you wear skinny jeans, you fall into one of those categories.

You can call them emo or whatever you want, all those subcultures are bull**** anyway. Skinny jeans look dumb no matter what statement you think you're making.
