Who are the best makers of skinny pants?
Guys, who are the best makers of skinny pants? I mean dressy skinny pants, not jeans etc.
Let me start:
1. Balenciaga,
2. Gucci, (although I've never bought things from Gucci...besides the $20 belt acquired in Filene's Basement )

Thanks Prada and battles. I found Balenciaga pants's sizing everywhere. This is the only downside because I have to try them one by one, which is a lot of work.

Balenciaga makes good skinny men's pants as well, not surprisingly.

Well, I didn't measure mine before they were altered, but there was a good 3 to 4 inches that had to be taken up, so I suspect they're 35" or 36" inseams for men.

On another note, I have some Liberty Rose pants that are also a nice skinny-leg fit for men.

Actually, I should qualify my prior information by saying that my Balenciaga pants are the ones with "bondage" straps appliqued all over. Judging from my recent visit to the Balenciaga boutique, the cut is the same as their standard skinny pants for men, but it's possible the inseams might differ.

For men, Raf Simons is king.

I think Carol Christian Poell's skinny pants look amazing.

Helmut Lang ones from a few years ago, if you can find them. I got the best pair off Yoox about two years ago for $37 plus shipping!
