Skinny Jeans for Not-Skinny Genes

| Categories Israeli Fashion, Sheinkin Street,, Tel Aviv | | 1 Comment

"...if the look you are searching for is that of a fat midget – go put on a pair of skinny jeans."
-Mike, a designer and the owner of the Shandan jeans shop, on 38 Sheinkin St., Tel Aviv, explains why he is opposed to the skinny jeans

Leave it to the Israelis to tell it like it is. Although the girls above sport them fine, some in the Israeli fashion world are lamenting the skinny-jean comeback as much as I am:

"they are ugly, and I believe this fad will soon die out, the main reason being that unless you are a model who is 5'9" tall, this type of jeans will make your ass look big. And unfortunately, most Israeli girls sport a large behind, and are not very tall."

It's not only a Diasporic phenomenon; shouldn't bootcamp unload some of that junk in the trunk? Read the original article by Hohit Ori Day with good pictures of Israeli booty by Arnon Maoz and Elad Hizki on, an e-magazine about Sheinkin Street, one of Tel-Aviv's hippest (hippyest?) fashion shopping streets.
