This may be true of the straight leg, but I'm wearing a pair of 33 slim fits right now, (I have a pair of 32" that are slimmer through the seat, but prefer the 33's, which are slouchy and imo, look better, and the hem is maybe 7.1", on a wide day. (The 32's are not much smaller in the hem.) And they are fairly tight on the calves. Actually, last time I went through SFO, I had to get secondary screening because there was no way the jeans were getting anywhere close to being able to be lifted high enough to see the knee brace I need to wear if I am going to be walking around all day. I offered to just drop trou and save everyone some time, but they demurred.

Also, and honestly speaking as a guy who is about a 32, a really small hem makes guys who are not super skinny look like Tweedledee. Up to my size, if you are taller, a really small hem may look okay, but it's marginal. if you are a 36 or something, I dunno.

fwiw, I think that the Triple works have a great cut. In terms of most flattering, for me, it is the RRL slim fits - the quality of the denim and the make is not in the same league, however.

my sweatpants are also falling apart. however, all my other isaora gear (which I have quite a bit of) is exceptionally made and holding up well. does suck though. seems like their newer stuff is poorly constructed.

what are those

I like my Manduka, I sweat so much I have to use a mat anyways or I'm slip and slide all over the place.
Mostly the thickness is nice I can be on my knees and not get distracted by any pain.


Admittedly I'm pretty fat right now, haven't worked out or practiced on a mat in about 3 months.

I like icebreaker shorts for work outs, lots of run to move around and comfortable.

Do any designers make black trousers(?) that are not of khaki or denim material and are not dress specific, and under $200?

Lol, I had a similar experience:

Saw too many Canadian geese walking around
1800 dollar overcoats and 300+ dollar knits at club Monaco.
It had me questioning who their clientele was and if people actually buy this stuff? I mean, right across from CM is holt renfrew so I'm sure if one wants to spend money they'll end up there.
Take us on Sf for example, if we want to buy something we'll check out the usual suspects (lncc,corner,porter...). Ms007 brought up the fact that we don't really bother exploring other designers and he's kinda right..

I think it's just the try hardness of everyone in the city (to be fair, I've always lived out in the country so I'm biased), but it just seems like everyone tries hard to look like a yuppie.
Lots of my friends work/live in Toronto, and I visit them a lot, but none seem to be like that.

Jet: yes, 339 for a cable cashmere sweater. 100$ more than in the states, couldn't believe it. I had just copped a Schneider Sisian earlier in the week for 250. So many J.Crew dads drooling over fair isles and chambray ties.

About why people spend so much at the mall: it's just easier and safe. On SF, we put in a lot of effort for our clothing: we research items, scour the Internet to find them in our size, and take a risk ordering things that we've never tried on. Most people just don't want to put in the effort. Fine with me, but laziness gets you ripped off.

terrible on the jcrew

i'm just going to pretend nobody mentioned lululemon so we can move forward, didn't know that shit moved eastward so fast

lululemon inversion pants i.e. best yoga pants and they're great for climbing.  My usual fit for cycling to and doing sports is hanes grey melange tee, those pants or my outlier climbers, old beater CPs, outlier vest and red beater beanie.

About the manduka, I had one for a while, gave it to an ex and she loves it, but I sweat like a pig iand the lulu mat has zero cushion but it is super sticky.  I actually think this topic doesn't get the attention it deserves since I'm climbing, going to yoga or the gym every day, and I'm sure other are too.

^^Don't worry big fella, no one's getting off on lululemon like people got their premature rocks off on hmmmm or what-have-you. Just want some breathable threads that show off my hockey thighs for when I go do yoga alongside the suburban moms over break. I'm sure you know how it is.

@smash, I would definitely love to find good, stylish yoga/athletic clothes too. If Gyakusou is a thing, I'm sure someone else is doing something similar for other athletic practices.

My girlfriend got me a pair of nike running tights a couple of months ago and I have been living in those + isaora drop crotch shorts, plus nike vest, flyknits and cloak jacket. I should take a picture, it looks ridiculous.

I've been mostly wearing loungewear lately too, since I don't have anywhere to go/school's out/it's cold and miserable outside.

It's weird to look homeless and also know that you're wearing $2,000+ worth of threads at the same time
