Levi’s has just debuted a brand new style of jeans for their men’s line—the ex-girlfriend. Similar in name to the highly popular boyfriend jean for women these bad boys promise to fit dudes in the same fashion as their stylish ex-girlfriend’s favorite jeans. While women’s boyfriend jeans are loose and comfy these puppies are the opposite extreme. The ex-girlfriends are basically jeggings for men. They are tight, tight, tight! If you thought that Levi’s …
… 510 were appallingly snug, you haven’t seen anything yet! I am not certain but I think that maybe donning these on a regular basis could even lead to sterility.
According to Levi’s product description:
Remember the girlfriend with the great style? Here’s a tribute to her – a fit that’s super-snug allover, an update of the five-pocket classic that’s as skinny as it gets.
I’m all for skinny jeans. I think they are adorable but these, in my opinion, take it a step too far. The name, the fit, the well, everything really. The internet world is abuzz with commentary on Levi’s ex-girlfriends, and most of it isn’t good.
While I would rather not see my husband wearing these, I have to question if this is a double standard. I have never batted and eye over the idea of the boyfriend jeans so why is it such a big deal for a dude to wear a woman’s style jean? Perhaps, whether I like it or not, the the idea of the macho man is fully ingrained in my psyche. Or maybe it’s just that I don’t want to see a dude in pants this tight!? Frankly, I am a little ashamed of myself for having such qualms with these jeans. Nonetheless I am not a fan of dudes in jeans titled the ‘ex-girlfriend.’
