Na, I mean the xx003. Though both seem to have quite wide hems compared to the thigh. I don't know quite what the idea was with the way they cut the top block. I guess since most of the two SF's file them under 'repro' I expected it to be repro-ish. Instead it just means hidden rivets and selvage. Nothing wrong if that's the cut you're looking for, just be aware that its not in the same category.

to the OP... the benefit is it's cheaper (when comparing like to like). The wider looms make volume production easier, as fewer looms need to be run to produce the same amount of fabric.

Why has nobody mentioned the obvious regarding rise? A short rise will make your bottom half appear shorter, by cutting you in half at a lower point. Sagging of any kind will make your legs looks shorter by the same logic. Buy a mid rise, and wear them a little bit higher (no I'm not talking grandpa-wear-em-at-your-navel high). It'll bring your 'waistline' up. As for the thighs, try on lots of jeans. Be careful buying online unless you can return easily. APC's...

WTF? Wish you could remember the name... the prospect of buying them at full retail makes me vomit.
No I actually though the same. If it weren't for the cut, the stitching, the leather, and the studs... they'd be pretty good
They're made to allow your foot to move and flex naturally. They were designed to allow your foot to act the same as when a person runs barefoot on grass (arguably the most 'natural' way to run... as its exactly how we evolved... and it works fine for Kenyans) I doubt that the retro-ish Cortez-Frees are intended for too much running (like the Free runner) but certainly will have some of the same effect walking. Just letting your foot move and flex naturally.
