All throughout the Hipster World of Brooklyn’s many neighborhoods and Manhattan’s Lower East Side and Omaha’s Main Drag, men walk around with skinny jeans. Very, very skinny jeans. Skin tight, sometimes. But has anyone stopped and really looked at the situation? Has anyone seen the mounting danger?

It’s no secret that Ugg boots have recently surpassed Kangaroo burgers as Australia’s number one export. According to a recent study, 1 in 3 urban dwelling women own a pair and the numbers are steadily increasing.
