Thanks ezru. Yes, i had the realization that my Flatheads were just downright too tight. These MWoC are slim, but I think i've found a good compromise between slim and skin-tight. And as the stacks start to settle I think the upper-lower-leg will get some volume and the proportions will be spot on.
Just to help you guys out a little... People with kids (especially girls) usually don't find jokes about looking like a sex offender funny. There's your "How to Interact Properly with Other People" advice for the day. And thanks for confirming that this is the worst fucking thread on here.
Didn't realize cuffing made you look shorter. Good to know.
I think we're in the same boat heigh-wise. Nowadays I cuff up maybe .25" if I want some visual break between jeans and shoes. In any case, the cuff in your photo is distracting from the sleek all-black look.
