Note: The Lee jeans were provided to me, my honest opinion follows.
Being a dad and a little older guy (late 40’s), you walk a fine line in the clothing department. You don’t want to look like you are trying to look younger but, at the same time, you might want something that is a little more updated than those jeans from the 90s.
Let’s take a skinny cut jean, (most) of the guys I know most likely wouldn’t choose that cut.
We might choose loose fit, straight cut, athletic cut or, relaxed fit.
And let me be clear, I am far from a “clothes horse” type of guy. Additions to my closet aren’t all that frequent.
In fact, I think the last time jeans were added to my closet were at Dad 2.0 back in February
I was given the choice of a few styles for my test so, after consulting with my Wife, it was decided. She picked the Lee Jeans Active Comfort Slim Fit Modern Series Jeans
I was skeptical… if not wary. Slim Fit sounded too close to something like Skinny Fit, which I don’t like. And, I think look a little weird on a guy my age.
But, looking at the slim fit, they seemed like they might work.
So, What Exactly is a Slim Fit?
Well, they are comfortable with room to move. That might be due to the jeans blend of 98% Cotton/2% Spandex. It could also be the cut. They aren’t as generous in the leg as a regular fit but, not skin tight like a skinny cut seems.
After I tried them on, they were comfortable and my Wife approved. :-)
I even wore them out to a meeting the other day and they seemed to work fine. Not too tight, not too loose.
They turned out to be a very comfortable pair of jeans. I think I like them quite a bit, actually. And my Wife says we will be buying another pair in the future.
