Junk jeans

I've seen it all now. Time to retire.

They look like breeches. This is why we girls love period movies. I'm not sure I want to see all that walking down the street.

I wonder how you would lower the "apex" for those men who aren't as perky as they once were?

I was thinking cod pieces too. So many styles come back around, maybe this too. The junk jeans don't seem as startling as the actual cod piece, like in the painting here, just looks like a few more buttons. Well, maybe that side view is more prominent!

The "gusset" piece isn't a bad idea - I've often felt bad for guys that jeans with a whole big fly and facing in heavy denim are the customary wear these days. I'm not sure those rivets are there for any other reason than to draw the eye to the package, though...

I'm just glad to see designers are starting to make jeans a lot tighter on men now. As loose as they've fit for the past few years, us ladies have had to use WAY too much imagination...

Aw..where's the 40 x 32s? > : ) Plus size gals aren't all b cups. Perhaps Simpli**** could run with this, amazing fit for guys? Finding the differential from hip to seat ( measure at the leg crease around below the hip) to select the correct front would be interesting to say the least.
To those who've done the costuming..is that how they figure it out?

Tailors used to be a bit more circumspect. "On what side do you dress, sir?
