BYU-Idaho bans skinny jeans...Crazyness Insues!

BYU-Idaho bans skinny jeans

Trends come and go, but the skinny on BYU-Idaho’s most recent addition to the honor code shows one trend going more quickly than some students would like. Students at Brigham Young University, Idaho recently encountered a new sign in the university’s testing center that read simply, “No skinny jeans.” Courtesy Kirsten Hartsoch Courtesy Kirsten Hartsoch The popular clothing item is something many students at Brigham Young University would not think twice about; however, it has become a somewhat polarizing issue at BYU’s Idahoan affiliate. In a September question-and-answer session students and faculty, Advancement Vice President Henry J. Eyring was asked whether skinny jeans are in violation of the university’s honor code, which states that clothing should not be form-fitting. “It’s useful for us to realize that fashions will come and go,” Eyring answered. “There will always be some tempting new style.” But are skinny jeans the gateway style to more scandalous attire, or a legitimate clothing option with a bad rap? “Skinny jeans are really form-fitting, like jeggings, which are technically leggings,” said BYU-Idaho student Rachel Taylor. “They show a lot of curves.” Taylor said she knew of one student who had been asked to leave the university’s testing center because she was wearing skinny jeans. “Some girls wear skinny jeans that are just too skinny … so they ask us not to wear them,” she said. Other students disagree, though, saying the ban on skinny jeans goes too far. “I think it is pretty ridiculous,” said BYU-Idaho student Zach Cooper. “We already aren’t allowed to wear shorts or flip-flops, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if they banned skinny jeans as well.” “This school is crazy.” Despite the alleged craziness, Cooper said he has come to accept the strict dress and grooming standards. “It’s nice that everyone is dressing relatively nice,” he said. “At first I was rebellious … but I’ve adjusted and come to accept it. It’s not really a burden anymore.” In fact, it can be helpful at times. “Some girls are trying to wear skinny jeans three sizes too small — it’s a good idea to not wear them at all,” Taylor said.

Another day, another person trying to ban something we have all come to know and love.What a failure of a school, hell the only reason He ever went to class in college was to check out girls in skinny jeans or leggings. Can't even imagine what college would be like without tight jeans, probably would have to transfer ASAP. Hell if you are going to make a dress code that'll make everyone look better, why not force every girl to wear heels?!?!?! #thehighertheheelthehotterthegirl

  1. Just a thought the push on childern's modesty came out at the same time has childern sexual abuse scandals of the late 80's and 90's.
    If modesty protects Young Women then it will
    protect the primary childern as well.
