    Right, I'm not from the bog, I don't go mad chasin' after fellas with road frontage, I've never been in Coppers, etc. And I like fashion/style. (Just eliminating all the assumptions - not saying there's anything wrong with all of them).

    But all this talk of men's bootcut jeans being the tool of the devil... unless they're poorly fitting - which looks bad for anything, I don't get it. All I see is a pair of jeans and they don't seem particularly bogman either. Can someone explain what's so hideous about them? Thank ye.

    Far better than skinny jeans.
    Who wants jeans that stick to the leg?

    Line dancing looks just stupid in skinny jeans

    And to anyone with a problem with 'boot cut' what do you think of 60's flares ?

    Boot Cut jeans sup the piss off a mens room floor like Gandhi guzzling a can of Lilt.

    If they're dark denim, they don't look so bad, but light / bleached boot cut jeans make a guy look like he just got released from the joy after a 20 stretch.

    Nevermind bootcut, 1970's yellow flares, round shades with baker boy hats are all back,
    just ask the chap with all the 'stlye': I.e. Harry (Styles).

    To be fair, it's a great improvement on the dress incident.

    I'd take boot cut jeans over skinny ripped jeans any day


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,381 ✭✭✭Yurt2


    Are all bootcut jeans all that bad with the right shoe (i.e. a nice pair of rugged boots)? It's when they're worn with pisscatchers* or a pair of sh*tty runners that things go badly wrong. They're always a risky play though, more likely you'll get the look wrong than right. I steer clear of them anyway.

    It's nigh impossible to buy a pair of bootcuts in a shop these days. It's all skinny, slim or straight...and they look sh1te!

    I find the slim/skinny stretch jeans very comfortable, like a pair of sweatpants/Joggers.

    The super skinny ones are just stupid really.

    Bootcut jeans are fine with boots... Just piss/puke soakers with shoes.

    There's a happy medium.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,778 ✭✭✭Greyfox


    I thought once there not skinny it's all good. So where's the best place to buy jeans these days?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,485 ✭✭✭✭Deja Boo


    wranglers, nice boot cut jeans there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,099 ✭✭✭Immortal Starlight


    If they hug your hips and make your arse look good enough to bite they are doing the job.

    Here’s hoping Aongus von Bismarck picks this up. He’s a fan of boot cut jeans

    Used to wear Boot Cut. Went into a shop in Berlin looking for a pair about 10 years ago. The girl politely suggested I cop my self ta fuq on and try Regular or Slim fit. Best advice I ever got. I’ll never get the wasted Boot Cut years back.

    Pretty sure he has a google alert set up to keep him updated on these pressing matters.

    Boot cut jeans, a phrase that always reminds me of the ads for unique (a mens clothes shop) on the now defunct City channel. They used to reel off offers on clothes and every second item was boot cut jeans, a phrase which they shot out at 100MPH.

    Glazers Out!

    Eh I wear boots, I need bootcut jeans. That's the point, for them to be able to fall over the boot.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 232 ✭✭jcorr


    Straight leg for me.

    Though I like when a woman wears it.

    It's not the bootcut jeans thats the issue really, its what footwear is worn with them and the combination of the two.

    As above if you are wearing boots then it makes sense to have bootcut jeans that fall over them. If you are wearing trainers or 'pisscatchers' as referred to earlier then chances are they are too long, they probably look bad and you are dragging the bottom of them along the ground making bits of them which is where a straight cut or skinny would be a better option. The right jeans with the right footwear and its all good!

    Bootcut jeans is what you see on casual days at work, worn by fellas in their 40s who never had any dress sense, usually worn with hiking shoes. It's not a good look.

    Bootcut does the job better than any effeminate skinny jean on men.

    I don’t know what the hell any of you people are talking about.

    There’s more than one type of jeans?
