Is it cool for guys to wear tight jeans?
The Cool Kids
Evan “Chuck Inglish” Ingersoll, 23, and Antoine “Mikey Rocks” Reed, 19, known as The Cool Kids, recently gave an interview to Toshi Kondo @ Rhapsody about, amongst other things, the video for their track “Black Mags”.
One of the first things that stuck out about the video were how tight Mikey’s jeans were.
Chuck: “We’ve heard that shit so many times.” [Laughs].
Mikey: “Yeah, it’s more or less a shocker because I’m black. A lot of other ethnic groups rock tight jeans. It wasn’t really anything new to me. I guess people didn’t know what to think. It’s just a weird first impression for some people. I sometimes forget that there’s a whole rest of the world that doesn’t live in a city.”
Chuck: “You get those people that are like, Oh, this video sucks ‘cause the dude’s pants are tight.”
Is there still a strong sentiment out there against guys wearing tight jeans?
