SH: But I like my tapered-leg jeans.
Me: They make it look like you have a big butt.
SH: No they don’t.
Me: Yes, they do. They make you look like an inverted triangle.
SH: But they’re comfortable. They were really in style a few years ago. What if they come back? And they look good on me.
Me: No, they don’t. If there is one thing I’ve learned from “What Not to Wear,” it’s that you shouldn’t wear tapered-leg jeans.
SH: What about these?
Me: Those are a lot better. They are fitted around your butt and have a straight leg. You have a great butt. I want to see it.
SH: OK. What about these? They have a straight leg but are relaxed fit.
Me: Relaxed fit is code for “I’ve gained weight but don’t want to go up a size.” Those are too loose around your butt.
SH: But they’re really comfortable.
Me: They don’t look as good as the snug ones.
SH: Do women really care about how men’s butts look in jeans?
Me: Are you joking?
