I see some tight fitting pants trying to make a comeback at the stores. The high end fashion ski clothes makers (Prada, Gucci, Pucci Chanel) all have tight pants in their line up; since they are all about fashion.
I think the problem, if you want to call it that, are the snow boarders. They represent the young and hip (even if more and more are over 40 and not so hip). They only wear loose clothing, even for competition. Since we all want to be young, nobody wants to be the old dude in the tights......now if the youngin's all started wearing the tight stuff again, you better believe even those that should not be wearing such stuff would some how manage to squeeze into them.
I admit when I see anyone wearing tight pants, I think to myself they are old school for sure.
BTW, women's fashion exists for one purpose, to attract the opposite sex (well thats not true, its to make money as with everything in the world) err....one purpose to the consumer that is. We are all conditioned to think certain things look good, but its certainly not out of function, how are 4" heels and skin tight jeans functional when compared to some hiking shoes and cargo pants? Well, perhaps they are functional....at attracting attention from men, like it or not thats what its made for.
There has been a multi part special run on Discovery or TLC about human sexuality, it covers many aspects about why women and men dress the way they do. It all comes down to attracting the opposite sex. Know why women wear red lipstick (the original color) ? Ill put it gently, so that the lips on their face more closely resemble those elsewhere. Although we have modified much of the original intentions of our grooming rituals, but the underlying reason for it all is sex.
So ladies get with the program and show us those buns of steel! During the middle ages (I think that was the time), a woman with a good ass was much more attractive than one with large breasts, reason being the breasts eventually dropped, but a good strong round butt lasted and lasted (also saw it on a TV special about the butt craze).
Oddly my GF does not want tight ski pants, and she is a Long Island JAP....my guess is that its because no one else is wearing them.
