Skinny pants

We’ve been traveling outside the country a bit, and the world is full of young men wearing skinny trousers. Thank God I’ve almost never had to dress for work, and I’ve been wearing button-front Levi 501s since college in the late ’60s, when my roommate had to bring them to me from Colorado, since effete Eastern 501s came with zippers. Not too skinny, not too fat. Before that though, I wore trousers with not much more room than the ones you see everywhere now. (I remember a chat with a sportswriter well over 50 years ago whose greeting was, “Jeez, your pants look painted on!”) Recently, because I’m an incredibly hip guy who is also cheap, I’ve begun buying trousers at Uniqlo. It’s 1965 all over again.
