The Skinny on Skinny Jeans


Love them or hate them skinny jeans have long been popular in the world of music fashion.

Elvis offended many in the 1950s with pants that were shockingly tight for the time.

In the sixties bands like the Beatles and Rolling Stones wore slim hugging pants.

The Ramones and other punk bands wore them in the 1970s.


Vivienne Westwood designed clothes for the Sex Pistols and sold tight pants in her famous London shop, SEX.


Lots of popular 80s bands have flaunted them, like Guns N' Roses.


Looks like skinny jeans are alive and well:

The Strokes

The Kooks

Razorlight
Kings of Leon

Tegan and Sara

All American Rejects

Fall Out Boy
Green Day

Amy Winehouse

I could go on all day. Even the Jonas Brothers wear skinny jeans.
