TOO SKINNY: Jeans have never gotten so much talk-show play. First, Conan O’Brien went on air wearing jeggings last December. Then, on Monday, Stephen Colbert decried on “The Colbert Report” that the “skinnification of the American jeanscape has gone too far.” “First, it was tapered cut, then shrink-to-fit, then slim-fit boot cut, then slouchy slim, then skinny fit. Enough. We get it — you’re in a band,” he exclaimed.
Colbert singled out Levi’s Ex-Girlfriend skinny jeans as a top offender. “There were baggier pants on the dudes in ‘Black Swan,’” he zinged. In reply, Levi’s questioned Colbert’s commitment to jean-ocracy. “At Levi’s, we think sexy comes in all shapes and sizes and can only hope that Mr. Colbert finds peace with his inner hipster,” said a Levi’s spokesman. “We believe in the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of ever-skinnier jeans.” The company pointed out that the skinny male style has racked up more than 8,000 “likes” on its Facebook application and has received a “pretty positive response” on levi.com. Perhaps if the skinny craze hits suit pants, Colbert should consider joining the band or at least jumping on the bandwagon.
