Slim Leg Fit

What does Slim Leg Fit mean?

Implied within the name, a type of pant fit that is very tight to your legs and leaves little, if any, room.

Heddels explains Slim Leg Fit

Slim-fit, or skinny, jeans fit snugly onto one’s body. The style began in the 1950s with stars such as Elvis Presley, shocking the public and giving the pants a “bad boy” image.

Throughout the twentieth century they continued to be popular with different music genres such as glam rock and metal. During the 2000s, skinny jeans for men became especially prevalent with hipsters and indie rock bands; today, they are a popular and fashionable choice for just about anyone.

Other names for slim-fit jeans include pegs, drainpipes, stovepipes, and cigarette pants.
