Some do, some don't, from a female perspective. Sometimes it depends on the cut of the jeans.
    As far as athletes, it's mostly pitchers who look that bad, and coaches. Baseball players do look more attractive when they wear the uniforms the old-fashioned way, as knickers with high socks. I did see one team recently that seemed to be wearing summerweight skintights that gave a sausage look to even scrawny players, but I don't remember which team. Athletes who look worse are many of the pro U.S. football players. Some of them must weigh 400 pounds, 100 of that in a gut hanging over their waistbands.

Joy, now totally off topic, so I'll recommend Eversz's Shooting Elvis as original, hb, hilarious in places, and interesting
