Skinny jeans in the skateboard culture: Why we wear 'em skinny. And my top 5 Denim makers

Updated on July 17, 2012

This hub is about skinny jeans culture and how to choose 'em, there's tons out there but i would like to share some of my favorite pairs with you.

Why Skinny?

Most people in the skateboard culture choose to wear skinny's because of the maneuverability, the quality of skinny jeans should fit properly, but it only looks good on men with certain style & body types it give people a taller look, and skinnys pants don't get in the way or drag while skating. The tight fit gives a better sense of stability, but what matters the most is the brand of the jeans, certain materials stretch allot better than others and materials can very some company's use very cheap materials, other can use really high end material that wont rip while skating.

In fashion, skinny's have shifted to being worn by men because of all the great qualities that are experienced by those who skate or bike. As a skater myself, here are my top 5 picks for skinny jeans in 2011.

1. Levi 510 super skinny twill jeans

These are some the most comfortable jeans on the market, the maneuverability is amazing on these pair. nice tight fit the stretch is good, and these pants are not made in china these pants are made in Mexico witch is really high quality, & is very important in skinny jeans. i feel that the 510 are a much better fit than my 511's wether its partying alll night or skating all day, these make me feel comfortable with any thing i do.

2. Kr3w Chad Muska Skinny Jeans

Chad Muska is a professional skateboarder, this is his pro model pants, so you would assume these are great jeans, & that is correct take a ride with Chad Muska and his twist on the classic K Slim. Behold the KR3W CM Denim Pant. A slim-fit pant with a debonair wash, integrated shoelace belt, long inseam, and a titch of stretch for pushing your wooden plank around the town. Ideal for scoping spots and blasting the beats out of your graffed-up ghetto blaster while you flare out the tongues of your ill high tops.

3. KR3W JG Signature Denim Pants

These a great slim fit pair of skinnys the material on these is 98% cotton with 2% stretch denim, witch is perfect if you skate like there's no consequence once you put on the KR3W JG Signature Denim Pant, but too bad your chin and elbows aren't as tough as this Jim Greco Signature Pant. That's okay, because a little skin loss here and there won't slow you down, especially with this cotton and stretchy denim pant preventing gravel or rail spurs from tearing a second hole in your hindquarters.

4. Rustic Dime Slim Fit Soft Grey

Something about Rustic Dime that we just don't have anymore is style designed and made on home turf. Rustic Dime is a company that has its roots in Los Angeles and is one of the fastest growing company's that make skinny and slim jeans for skaters and bikers, or heck, for anyone that loves denim! I personally love these jeans more than any other brand that I have worn because the quality is unmistakably great. It takes a good beating and it starts to look better than when I first bought them. The way it starts to stretch and contour to the legs make these Rustic Dime's some of the most comfortable jeans on the market.

The only downside is that since they are a small company growing fast out of L.A., you can only find them in L.A. Unlike Levi's and Krew where you can find anywhere online, Rustic Dime is literally "a dime a dozen." Lucky for us,

5. Volcom Psorta Skinny Jeans

Any skate knows Volcom. And anyone that doesn't skate knows Volcom, how can you not? It's everywhere! But even through all their strong marketing and widespread adoption by people around the fashion world, you can't let their Psorta skinnys slip you by. What I like about their Psorta jeans is the tight fit. I'm talking a snug fit that makes you feel safe no matter what you're doing. These are one of those pants where you can tuck in your shoe and nothing is going to get caught in a bike chain or trip you up. The stretch denim that they use is not superior to other brands, but it doesn't fall short either. After a good week or so of wearing these, they'll be so comfortable you wouldn't want to take them off when your kicking it at home.
