I resisted because I remember wearing these kinds of pants in the sixth grade. Except, back then they were red and made out of sweat material. I loved them. But unfortunately, up until the ninth grade I wore tapered jeans. I wasn't supposed to be wearing tapered jeans-- they weren't really in style at the time. I thought all the jeans were made the same... so, I'd stand in line at lunch and wonder why I my jeans looked different than everyone else's.
You can imagine my emotional dilemma when skinny jeans made their grand come back (it's been a few years now...).
Anyways, I like them.
