Which Is Worse: Dad Jeans or Mom Jeans?

Last May, we told you that hipsters brought back "mom jeans," so it was only a matter of time before "dad jeans" made a comeback as well. According to The New York Times, skinny jeans are on the way out, and their decline is making way for more loose-fitted, light-wash and higher-waisted denim.

President Obama was recently mocked by fashion blogs after being photographed in said "dad jeans," but maybe his fashion critics will soon be biting their tongues (or pens). Could it be that the POTUS is in fact a denim trendsetter?

Well, we still think "dad jeans" are horrible. But are they worse than "mom jeans"? You tell us.

NYTIMES.COM reports:
Popular with dads all over the country, lighter-blue denims with a fuller cut get renewed interest from the skinny-jeans crowd.

    They just don't fit me right, and it's hard to pull them over work boots.

    I don't think it's the jeans that are the problem as much as the shirt. It'd look smoother having the shirts above the jeans, imho.

    What's called "Mom jeans" are actually natural waist, and was used a lot before many designers wanted to bring back the really low hip slung jeans of the 1970s which look good only if you are either really young or absolutely no rolls of fat aka muffin top... brokke shields and calvins

    Those were "mom jeans".......

    The only thing I can focus on is why is she posing like that.

    Women are suppose to dress like sluts. Men dress relaxed and show no goods.

    Why is SH full of attention on the cuts of jeans? Must one be better than the rest?

    The cut of a pair of jeans depends entirely on what a person would like to wear. And, different people look different in all sorts of cuts.
  • S* Ace 2013/07/27 13:34:13
    And they politicize it too.
  • Ace S* 2013/07/30 12:07:59 (edited)
    Yes, just mention of the POTUS automatically draws some people's attention to the repetitive jeans poll who might otherwise ignore it because he is so mesmerizing, bewitching, and completely and powerfully charming beyond reason that he steals their ability to choose to ignore him. So, I've gathered.

    But wait... is that a white button-down shirt he's wearing?... and what about those black sandals??.... hmmm??... :)

    Everyone knows how much in love the #New #York #Times is with POTUS #Barry #Soetoro but this is redonkulous. Regardless of how much the writer seems to hate skinny jeans, they {and skirts} look far better on women than regular jeans. "Dad Jeans" fail to be anything new, there have always been loose fitting denim pants. Of course, "Mom Jeans" fail to be anything new for the same reason.

    As a Biker, I can't stand loose jeans beating my legs to death in the wind. The tighter, the better.
  • Patagon... Cage SC 2013/09/15 04:34:45
    Agree! Ever notice all cowboys wear stretch jeans! I've been wearing tight jeans since the 60's and when mens aren't available I buy womens and no one notices. No big deal. Can't stand baggy jeans or loose fitting jeans.
