It's a typical Tuesday morning on spring break and I'm sitting at home watching the Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert has just given his Tip of the Hat and Wag of the Finger segment, and it was the latter portion that really raised my eyebrows: the Ex-Girlfriend jean by Levis. According to the Levis website, the Ex-girlfriend jeans are meant to honor an ex-girlfriend who may have had great style as well as a response to the boyfriend and ex-boyfriend jeans for women. There's just one catch: the ex-girlfriend jeans are so skinny, it's impossible for men-well, most men-to fit into this spray-on fit. Colbert went on to discuss the "skinification" of mens jeans, which I find pretty hilarious. At least women can fit into boyfriend jeans, but it will be interesting to see what kind of guy buys these jeans. In fact, this almost makes the jeggings seem more wearable. There's a funny irony to this: I just bought skinny Levis last week.
Feel free to post your opinions! :)
