It's something that most women instinctively know how to do, but most men get it wrong these days. It's simple really... your jeans and pants and shorts should always complement your butt.
Why? Well it's a primal thing. We (humans) like the look of a nice butt. It's a sign of a body that's healthy and active. And for most of our history, human beings have had to be healthy and active in order to survive.
In short, a nice butt is a primal survival characteristic... and we're hard-wired to be attracted to it !
But because it happens to be 'trendy' for men not to wear jeans that fit well, most of them wear jeans that are either baggy in the bum, or have long low pockets that distort their natural shape.
Just take a look at the photo above. The woman's jeans feature the classic jean pockets that complement the fullness of her butt.
Now look at the long trendy pockets on the men's jeans below. They break-up the natural line and create a droopy-bum look that's reminiscent of an old man's butt *(with no muscle definition).
Need I point out which style-and-fit prompts an automatic primal attraction?!
Interestingly, in contrast to what trendy city dwellers wear, most cowboys prefer jeans that are a snug fit in the bum and crotch and legs. Obviously it's just the most practical thing to do from their perspective... and the ladies certainly seem to appreciate it.
So why do so many young men insist on wearing the sagging look (photo below), baggy bum jeans, or extra long shorts that make them look like a little boy?
Well the answer is two-part. First we have the 'rebellious' attitude that all teenagers go through. They want to show that they're different than the generations that came before them... and so they adopt ways of dress that can be drastically different from the staus quo.
This adolescent fashion trend can then become a 'tribal' uniform that is adopted by a social sub-group, and carry over to men in their late 20's (and even older).
This brings us to the second psychological factor... the principles that influence the way we dress :
- to fit-in and be accepted by the group
- to be different in some way to raise our status in the group
- and to be sexually attractive to potential mates within the group.
