i think the Opie Taylor or lumberjack image is more specific to the US. Cuffing doesn't quite have that connotation in the "English" speaking world.
Or the New Cures? 511's seem to vary a lot. I like them, got 4 pairs in 31 and 32, cos it's about the slimmest rigid jean I can wear and I like the cut. PS's were definitely too tight for me though, so got the size 30 New Cures instead. Jury is still out on whether I should have gone for New Standards cos the NCs are still fairly tight through the leg after a few wears. PS might be lower rise than 511 and NS is probably higher. NC's seem to be about the same rise as...
well, you won't get things right straight away no matter how much you research it. but hopefully you can shorten the odds on having too many fails by narrowing down the sorts of thing you like / might work for you. Good luck with it all, and be sure to post some pics in WAYWT thread - you'll be surprised how much your look will change over a couple of years. PS - Good skills re the weight loss BTW - loosing excess weight and getting fit is part of the deal, not just new...
well what else can he do with them but see how they go?
i would have sized down one more - they look fairly loose for the third wear. anyway, let them wear in and see how they go. should be a nice relaxed pair

Can't believe it, she sang really well, and picked a Tina Turner song which definitely wasn't a ballad. There are much weaker singers still left, but that's how these things go I suppose.
OP - You sound a bit like me, divorced (37) and hadn't paid attention to clothes for years cos ex-wife was a handbrake and very different ideas from me. My tips: 1. You will probably lose weight now you can get back into having a "life" and exercising. Don't buy too big (except for shoes, cos people often buy too small). 2. You will experiment with different styles, and have some "fails" along the way. Don't ask me about the time I got white jeans... 3. Think...
Only time you want perfect hemming is wearing "formal" slim cut jeans in the Italian style if i can put it that way, with expensive shoes. Otherwise you need some stacking or do turn-ups. More with skinnies than other cuts. It's just part of the look of jeans - they should have more breaks than a pair of trousers. Re the cowboys, the inseam needs to be longer to keep the whole leg covered when sitting on the horse. Riding in bad fitting jeans can give you rashes in all...
