NEW YORK — Skinny is the word for young men’s denim these days, and in the action-sports denim market, teens’ shrunken fits could actually be mistaken for body paint.
But after several seasons in the mix, skinny jeans have transcended beyond resourceful skaters stealing their girlfriends’ denim to a more mainstream guy. Action sports brands are cashing in on the extreme silhouette for spring ’08, with more than a handful of labels offering leg openings as slim as 13 inches.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
