The market for denim styles with escalating prices has become so sophisticated that some companies claim to be able to predict where the skinny trend will lead. “Somewhere between October and next February, it will hit all parts of the country,” said Jeff Rudes, the president of J Brand, which expects to ship more than 140,000 pairs of skinny women’s jeans this year, with leg openings as narrow as 10 inches around. “This cycle is then good for 18 months to two years. It can’t get any narrower than this without stopping blood flow.”
