According to South Korea and Australia. A man was cleared of rape charges in both these countries because the Jury and judge ruled that the skinny jeans could not be taken off with co-operation and/or consent. However, in Italy they threw this idea out the window because "Skinny Jeans aren't chastity belts".

Thoughts?

Nah, he thinks that if she's wearing a mini-skirt. He just remembers how hard it is to close up his jeans after he takes a cr*p, and thinks "If I'm wearing this I can't possibly...."

Her having skinny jeans on may require that she have assisted taking them off, but it doesn't mean that this was a consensual action. Threats could have played a part easily, and there are other possibilities.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

Oh wait. The woman testified that *he* pulled them off HER. I'm sorry, but I agree. This woman might actually be lying. For what reason? I'm not sure, but it's enough for reasonable doubt.

Well, if he actually raped her, I can't see a difficult pair of pants standing in the way of that. Just because they might-maybe-possibly be a bit stubborn coming off doesn't mean that he was entirely deterred from his task.

It would take a seriously pathetic rapist to let a pair of jeans stop him.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

I wish I could actually see the legal transcript.

This. And I agree with RR too. Also, don't forget that a girl could have been "under the influence" in which case consent doesn't even matter (you need to be of sound mind to enter into a contract - even a verbal one). Win for Italy and fail for South Korea (shocker).

Lol, South Korea doesn't press charges unless it has tentacles.
