post #105841 of 109053
I seem to again be going down the rabbit hole of skinny jeans. The skinnier you try, the skinnier you buy. The last pair I bought was really skinny. At a cruise, a female friend complimented them, and I made some comment on how they're basically almost women's jeans. We switched jeans, and there was basically no difference.

Eh nothing wrong with skinny jeans in the right fit imo, it's nice to have some variety and different pants to change between.

No way it will ever the only thing I wear though.

 

Speaking of pants, anyone have any ideas for a cropped wool/cotton pair with heavy drop-crotch?
Obvious choice are the comme de garcons ones, but the diaper effect on those when worn is just too much for me.

The rise on my old APC's is stupid low, the uniqlo things (straight and skinny or whatever) are tight in the wrong places, old Helmuts are just too tight (and the rise is also too low), and the pair of Margiela denim, while comfy, is a size too big in the waist (that was the idea, but still). Only "jeans" I have that really fit great are Cloak microcord trousers. Cloak greasers are good, too, but neither pair are denim.

I mentioned trying on a pair of Dior raws for the first time a couple weeks ago - fairly certain I'll just end up with a pair, because they really seemed perfect for the kind of jeans I like to wear. Anyone looking to get rid of a size 33, hit me up.

If you are just looking for a higher rise with some taper, and don't want to spend a ton, I'd check out APC Petit New Standard. I picked up a pair last month in Sz 31 and its been great(maximum style regression reached) They have a 6.75" hem 10" rise and an 11.5" thigh. Theyre pretty loose in the waist but I don't care because they're pretty comfy everywhere else. I also wear a 31/32 in DH.

I tried some on a few weeks back - couldn't really tell the difference between them and my petit standards. Rise not noticeably higher, at least. But thanks!

Re cropped drop crotch: check out CAMO.

I can't believe the uniqlos are tight for you -- I wear them twice and they fall off without a belt. they have spandex in them I think?

33 Diors are going to be jabba the hut huge after a few wears.

Wear a belt and sling them super low of your hips.

Indigo jeans rule.  To appreciate them, you have to be a nerd though, and necessarily a repro nerd, but definitely a textiles neard.  It's all about the details, the treatments (indigo warp threads that have been painted black? Pretty awesome.  Black weft to accompany a super dark indigo warp?  The result is actually slightly "brighter" than you'd expect but it fades to dark indigo and white.  If you just get standard, not very interesting, indigo jeans, then yeah, of course they are going to be boring.  

 

Can't stand stretch in my jeans.

i really want a spiked belt sup @LA Guy

Studded = Balenciaga.  It's sorta their thing.  I'm not as sure about spiked.  I think Lanvin, which also does a cool, very crisp, buckle, did a good one a few seasons back.  Um, have you looked, and I hesistate to say this, Saint Laurent Paris?

I think that the most interesting looks now are....

big coat, slim pants
slim coat, big pants
slim pants, big sole shoes (I really like this for some reason)

that sort of thing. It avoids that 90's big fuckin everything look which should stay in the grave but breaks from the all slim look we have been seeing for a while.

I still like the all slim thing but yay for change sometimes.

No, don't do the oversized coat with skinny pants.  If you go to tradeshows and fashion shows, you will see that ALL the cool kids do it, and accordingly, hate it.  I call it the Pitti silhouette, and yes, it translates into "streetwear" as well.  Slim coat/jacket with baggy pants - I've always loved that Akido style silhouette.

Thx for the tip, but looking for something more *cool japanese streetwear*-esque. So way more cropped, way more drop-crotch and some thinner fabric

(which basically is describing the cdg ones, but ugh they bunch so much)

Yeah that's it. I got some black brushed cotton drop ride pants by then from Need Supply about 6 months ago and they're pretty great. It's not an extreme drop and the hem lands right at the ankle.

Yikes, TOJ has a reddit thread about their issues. Temple of Jawnz - Still legit or turned shady?

Looks like Thurston Bros are gonna be getting more business.
