Okay, first post in this thread, featuring lots of images. I'm 5'11" and 160 lb, and I wear 32x32 in j.crew, Banana, and other non-vanity sized mens pants, though such pants tend to be baggy in the ass and thigh except for the new j.crew urban slim fit. Below are my jeans from oldest to newest. Fit and fade critiques welcome. I have a desk job so fading these is a very long-term project. Also, I never photographed my ass before but it looks like my pants have a tendency to wedge right up in there. Have I been walking around looking like this my whole life? I hope it's just my awkward attempts to pose for the camera timer.APC New Standard
30x34. Maybe 3.5 years old, 8-10 washes. My go-to pair.Styleforum x Five Easy Pieces
(SFx5EP) lot 001, 31x34. From around 2006 or 2007. One cold soak when new, one recent wash when they got a little too greasy for comfort.Iron Heart 634S
, 32x34. Maybe a year and a half old, no washes. They are apparently not in any hurry to fade. I really like these with my Alden AF53 boots on a cold day.Eternal 811
one wash, 33x36. One year, no washes. About 90% of the fading so far happened in one weekend when I wore these to move about 2000 lb of bricks and sand from the driveway to the backyard and then built a terraced garden bed. 33 waist was the smallest I could fit on in the store, but I still think they're a size too big as they've stretched out and seem a bit baggy overall.Pure Blue Japan XX-005
one wash, 31x35.5. They arrived yesterday and this is my first time wearing them. Thighs are a bit on the sausage-casing side but I'm hoping they stretch out just enough to be a slim, but not skin-tight, fit.
I can't believe how long it took me to put this post together.
