This is a topic that actually makes me shake my head as I write it because it’s just somewhat baffling.
Nowadays you will see that skinny jeans is somewhat of a common thing among st guys and it makes absolutely zero sense.
Now before I start just let me state that I understand that not everyone should or wants to look the same as everyone else. This Is perfectly fine and I actually encourage men to go after their own look but some things such as how tight/loose you wear your clothes is not something that falls under this in my opinion.
Just the same as men should not wear their shirts super tight to look muscular or for whatever reason they choose to do this.
On the flip side of that men wearing oversized pants so that they can sag them down also falls under this same category with not making any sense. Luckily this trend actually started dying out a few years ago so at least a thumbs up for guys becoming aware of how foolish this made them look.

Laying The Foundation
There are many things that play a factor in your style like your watch, shoes, color of your outfit and so on but don’t even think about those things until you can at least get the correct size in your clothes. Think of this as the foundation of your style so make changes here first before working on anything else.
Do Girls Like Guys Who Wear Skinny Jeans?
I’ve actually asked this question to quite a few girls just to pick their brains. I don’t remember the exact number here but an overwhelmingly percentage of them said no, hell no or some variation of the word no.
What surprised me about this is that a lot of the girls I asked were more alternative in their style so they hung out with guys who wear skinny jeans on a regular basis. I figured they, out of all the different types of girls I asked would be for it but that didn’t seem to be the case.
Some said they didn’t care as long as it’s not tighter than the jeans themselves wear, which most guys who wear skinny jeans seem to be aiming for.
Make Friends With A Belt
Going off the skinny jeans topic if you for whatever reason have jeans that are to big for you then there is a simple cheap solution being a belt.
I don’t know how many times I have seen guys walk around having to keep pulling their pants up. I would just think to myself how annoying this must be for them having to keep doing this every 4 steps they take.
I understand that some of us have don’t have the money to go out and buy clothes at any given time but there should be no reason you can’t buy a belt, you can find one for about $5.
The Length Of Your Pants Matters
If your pants stop 3 inches before they touch your shoes then your pants are not long enough. We’re not aiming to look like pee wee herman here.
To long is just as bad as to short in this situation so if your pants fold over more than twice at your feet then you need to consider getting shorter pants or getting the ones you have taken up by a seamstress or tailor.
Getting Your Pants Altered
If you don’t know of anyone personally that does sewing then you need to find someone to alter your pants.
Finding someone to do this can be tricky depending on where you live but it’s a good start to google “tailor or seamstress near me” if that doesn’t pull up anything then trying replacing near me with your nearest major city.
Depending on the store there is usually someone there that will measure you for recommended pants length which is something most do complementary.
Of course price will vary depending on state and the store but this will save you money overall than having to go buy a new pair of pants.
*Note I’m not talking of altering skinny jeans here. If you have those then you will have to purchase new pants, there is no saving those things.
