For us ladies of a certain level of personal style, boyfriend jeans are more than a trend—they’re practically a way of life. We’ve been fans of the baggy, too-cool-to-care trousers for some time now—much longer than even our own boyfriends really know about.
But it’s not lost on us that perhaps the male half of the human species has a slightly different opinion on the trend, so we set out to find out. We asked no less than 17 real, warm-blooded men what they think of the fairer sex wearing boyfriend jeans.
Their responses run the gamut, and are guaranteed to crack you up at least a little bit. Still, regardless of how men feel about the low-key denim trend, there’s no way we’ll be giving up the boyfriend jean any time soon. Relationships come and go, but not when it comes to that.
