Of course we dont get the skinny jeans. Just like the older folks didn't get my gigantic pants when I was a happenin' young dumbass. Or like we didn't get the skinny jeans' previous incarnation when the metalheads were wearing them in '87. We're not supposed to get it. We did, at one time though. I doubt any one person here can say they didn't ride some trend that they now laugh at themselves about.
I'm looking at YOU, popped collars.
But cool now has nothing to do with later. Nevermind all that. What I'd really like to know is why parachute pants have not yet made it into a comeback rotation.
