It could be argued that just a few short years ago, men’s fashion and style as we know it didn’t really exist. Of course, men still wore clothes and seasonal runway shows took place, but there wasn’t the same desire to dress well, the same need to be stylish or the same hunger to be up to date on all the latest trends.
With fashion being an industry that is far from normalised, it is perhaps unsurprising that a number of items have caused no small amount of controversy over the years. Skinny jeans have been polarising since the beginning, becoming the trademark piece of many a teenage subculture. But rather than burning out, they have held their own and are now firmly entrenched within almost all sartorial circles.
