Women’s Skinny Jeans For Men Outift
Denim jeans are one of my favourite items of clothing. I’ve been wearing them for as long as I can remember, gradually over time my preference has slowly been edging towards a slimmer fit, this has been helped along by the trend of super skinny jeans over the last few years. However, this is where a problem begins, namely comfort. Trying to squeeze into these very slim jeans is a task in itself, especially with 100% cotton! It’s not just the initial problem of getting them on, but extended wear throughout the day can become quite troublesome to say the least. The feeling of pressure and the lack of movement are pretty big negative points for me.
With these downsides with men’s skinny jeans I was recommended to actually try women’s skinny jeans. I’ve read numerous accounts of men wearing women’s jeans to get the fit they wanted, even celebs such as Harry Styles and Mick Jagger have publicly admitted to their love of female denim.
The pair I chose to feature on my men’s fashion blog for my first foray into this undiscovered area is the Citizens Of Humanity Rocket High Rise Crop Jeans in Aura, containing a combination of Cotton, Lyocell, Rayon and Spandex materials to get a super stretchy feel. When I first received them I was taken aback at how visually stunning the wash is, it’s been a long time since I’d seen a medium blue colour with such vibrancy and depth, definitely on par with the Diesel washes of the mid to late 00’s when they were in their prime. Needless to say I was suitably impressed with the colour, so a great start. Next was to see how they actually fitted!
I chose a size 27, my normal men’s size is a 30/31, so quite a dramatic difference, but to my surprise they pulled on fairly easily, tight yes, but they didn’t feel immediately constricting. In fact despite their snug fit, they actually felt refreshingly comfortable! I could move about freely, even so much as lifting my leg up without any trouble. So far so good. I spent the day wearing them and breaking them in, within a couple of hours wear they had started to give a little and stretched a decent amount. I imagine after a few more wears they will be the perfect size. This particular pair and wash only come in a cropped cut, however as I normally wear a 30 inseam they were just the right length for me to hit at the ankles.
Comparing these to Diesel Jogg Jeans (which I’m a huge fan of) renowned for their softness, I’d still say the Citizens beat them hands down. Joggs are comfortable of course, but after a short amount of wears they begin to lose their shape, sagging in all the wrong places, giving a slightly unflattering look. The Citizens of Humanity Rockets do not suffer from these shortcomings.
Overall, my first experience with women’s jeans for men has been a success. Super comfortable and snug all over, just what I was looking for, teamed up with a truly beautiful wash, Citizens Of Humanity have created the perfect pair of skinny jeans that we can all enjoy! For those interested in the outfit, I wore these jeans with my Bottega Veneta Driving Shoes, an ASOS T-Shirt and my Omega Aqua Terra Seamaster Watch. How many of you men opt to wear women’s skinny jeans?
