Why call them “Skinny Jeans” if they are not being worn by someone who is actually skinny?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21300 points ) August 24th, 2012

Is it really genuine to call them “Skinny Jeans” when the person wearing them are not skinny? If the reason for them being “Skinny Jeans” is because skinny people wear them why that moniker? I can’t honestly say it makes a non-skinny look skinny, it just makes the non-skinny person look as if they are wearing ill-fitting jeans.
