New Wineskins

Good morning,
This morning in my bible reading I came to the part where Jesus in teaching about fasting, makes the connection to new wineskins and cloth. Can somebody help me understand this? Is he referring to the new covanent?
Thank you.

@brianlalor I believe the point Jesus is making about fasting in response to this question is simply that it is not the right time for them to be fasting. Jesus is the bridegroom and the Kingdom is upon them so they should be rejoicing as at a wedding feast! Jesus then references wineskins to make that point that His coming announces a New Covenant - He is making all things new.
