Maybe Levi Strauss can learn a thing or two from Ermenegildo Zegna. Now that men’s suits are loosening up, it may be time for women’s jeans to do the same. Case in point: A 35-year-old woman was hospitalized for days after her too-skinny jeans caused her to lose feeling in her lower body, according to the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry. After helping a relative move while wearing the jeans, the woman’s feet grew numb and she couldn’t move because the circulation in her legs was so poor. The study says she fell and then lay motionless for hours until she was discovered and rushed to the hospital.
