More concerned with the fit. I think i've heard the canes drape better as there is less taper. It would seem the canes are a little more forgiving fit wise, again though this is only what ive heard.
To anyone whos tried / owned both which do you prefer and why ? I know the denims supposed to be nicer on the canes. Is it true that the canes are slightly fuller throught the leg that the lvc ?

I know that this is just a personal preference, but I'm not a huge fan of Lee repros for precisely this reason. However, the pockets being too low comment is just off. Those back pockets are actually set reasonably high compared to a lot of other jeans back pockets. No one except for Kevin Costner and people who you might suspect...

What is the preference on the forum ? I am finding myself getting into higher rise denim right now like Lvc but i guess it depends on the situation. Slimmish legs and a higher rise seems to make me look taller which is good and obviously they're alot more comfortable than low rise on the hips.
Quote: Originally Posted by gorgekko I know the rule proscribes wearing black with brown but I do it occasionally and I think, if done properly, can look fantastic. That said, what colour are the pants? Casual outfit? And why are you trying to match your shoes to your coat/jacket? Not sure what color pants yet as i have a few to choose from. I am curious though as to whether i should pay attention to matching my shoes with my jacket / coat....
Just for a casual outfit i'd like to know if Dark brown leather footwear would be ok with a black jacket / coat ? Does it matter about matching shoes and jacket / coat in a casual setting ?

In any case please post pics up wearing them as i'm interested in buying these. Is the bootcut subtle or big ?

Their extremely low profile makes them really look out of proportion except with the narrowest leg openings, imo. Didnt John Lennon wear his with flares ? Anyway i see...
Just came across these and seem drawn to them. What do you guys think about them and more importantly what would they look good with ?
