Men In Tight Pants: Sexy or Not?

10/16/2006 at 10:50 AM ET

Skinny pants are the hottest thing right now… For women. But some men are following the trend, too! As part of his edgy makeover for his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, Jared Leto has taken a cue from rockers of the past (Steven Tyler, we’re lookin’ at you) and has embraced some seriously tight pants! And Leto’s not the only guy who has been slipping into some really super-skinny jeans and trousers. Dave Navarro, Fabrizio Moretti, Jude Law (left– and we’ve seen those jeans before) and more are squeezing into the thigh-choking pants. To see all the pics of these guys sporting snug slacks, check out (and vote on) our Men in Tight Pants gallery and come back her to comment. Tell us: Are men in tight pants a fright? Or is it all right? — Cara Shultz

NO NO NO! Those jeans look like they should be worn by a woman.

I think men in tight pants look gay. Not that I have anything against homosexuals. Be what you want to be as long as you’re happy. But I do not think men in tight pants are sexy.

I think this style of pants should stay in England. It seems that here in America, most woman do not like it on a guy. The tight pants with a flare at the bottom of them, now that look is hot. Jude’s pants are not . It still reminds of the day when only gay men wore them. I think they can keep them. But of course, this is only my opinion.

Based on the voting results, I know I am not alone when I say that Jude Law looks awful in skinny jeans. The only one that looks hot is Lenny Kravitz and of course Bon Jovi in his skin tight leather pants… YUMMY!!

On a man, these pants just do not work for me. I would snicker if a man walked past me with these on. Just plain “N-O”. They look so much better on a woman. I do like the way Lenny Kravitz wears his “skinny” jeans, though: low, lean and a touch of flare on the bottom. YUM!!!

Steven Tyler is the only man who can wear these pants.

Those pants should be burned!

I think skinny jeans on men are one of the worst things in fashion right now. I see young guys where I live wearing them and it makes me cringe! They don’t even look like men they look like girls!
