Will Brokeback Mountain Bring New Jeans Fashion Awareness For Gay Jeans?
You have heard about the epic love story set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, Brokeback Mountain tells the story of two young men – a ranch-hand and a rodeo cowboy – who meet in the summer of 1963, and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.
Now a friend did just ask me “don’t you think that after this movie some new craze of new jeans fashion will come up? ” – I had to laugh, because I usually don’t follow fashion trends but am usually ahead of them.
And then I actually had to really laugh, because I asked him how a typical “gay jeans” would look. It was hilarious. Me being bisexual and usually really thinking I have “seen it all”, I wondered what kind of style of jeans would qualify. No certainly not some pinkish-yelling ones.
Actually funny enough, I bought just last week (before I wrote this article) at one of the more and more popular ZARA clothing stores, a cool new vintage looking pair of denim zara jeans. And… that store it sometimes an absolute gay madhouse, meaning, so many gay men and guys are hunting there for the latest fashion styles, that don’t cost an arm and leg (and, yes while buying their new jeans picking up some date in a store is convenient, too! )
Then, it hit me. Of course there is a gay jeans! Actually there is most often a VERY easy way to tell if someone is actually straight or not. At least it was like that the last 20 years: the tightness of a jeans usually tells a lot about a guy wearing it.
Straight men tend to buy rather baggy and never really tight jeans as in “tight-so-you-can-see-my-bubble-butt”-tight.
So usually the way a guy walks in combination of the tightness of their jeans gives you a pretty good hint. But then, these days with all this talk about “metrosexuals”, good looking and style aware straight guys that might be mistaken as gay. Hmmmm….
Well, I really do not know for sure, but that was the only thing that came to mind when I was joking around with how “gay jeans” would look like…
And at the end of the conversation I actually told my friend, that no matter what, as an internet marketer who actually runs a jeans website, I found the whole idea that a new gay movie about the romances with two cowboys might indeed influence will people’s taste and might develop some new fashion styles.
After all, “gay” also still means “happy”, and a good fitting jeans makes you usually indeed quite happy. At least me, when I look at some good fitting guy (or girl, for the record! ) in them.
