Style Terms explains Slim Leg Fit

Slim-, or skinny, jeans 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- jeans include pegs, drainpipes, stovepipes, and cigarette pants.
