It’s another Dear Marcy! Ask her anything and hope she doesn’t answer. …
I’m really hoping you can help me out.
My husband insists on wearing these super tight skinny jeans.
When I first saw him wearing them I thought he was wearing leggings. I really don’t like them on him, but maybe he is just not styling them right?
I don’t have the heart to tell him he looks awful in them so I’m hoping I could offer him some advice on ways he could wear them.
Would you be able to offer any advice?

Dear Deservedly Distressed,
I am not sorry to inform you there is no advice on how to tell a man to style an article of clothing that – at best – makes him look like a human ice cream cone.
You have two choices.
- You can wait it out. Eventually he’ll twist his testicles. This is good news for you if you don’t want kids.
- Send him to a ballet class. That is the only place skintight pants are even remotely acceptable in society. Or better yet, take him to a ballet performance in his skintight jeans. He’ll become so self conscious comparing himself to guys that look like this…
…that he will rip them off immediately upon returning home.
There. Mission accomplished.
