Is it permissible for a man to wear women jeans (that is only simple one without any designs and other things)? As, sometimes, the material is very comfortable and they costs less.

  • Are they tight jeans? As it is forbidden for men to wear tight clothing in Islam (تبرج).

No it's not allowed. There are 6 criterias for dressing up in Islam, and one of them is: a man shouldn't wear the dress of a woman and a woman shouldn't wear the dress of a man. Hence it's not allowed. Hope this helps.

  • thanks for the reply. but it doesn't relate to it as its not a dress. just a simple jeans and its for use in house only. kindly reply, if possible with hadith reference.
