Aren't most models significantly taller than average? I imagine that shoe size also scales accordingly.

Yeah, true, but that might not account for the people from the other forum. The thread was a few pages long and some of the guys were saying/complaining that they even have size 13 or 14 feet, which seems unusual. I don't see a reason why they would lie either.

Took my mom and aunt out around LA today and stopped in a few places they wanted to go to. First was br at the mall and it's laughable how nothing has changed and they still sell the same shit (saw that mad men b52s collection). Literally nothing in there I would wear and it's amazing they're still in business. Also checked out bloomingdales and nordstrom, nothing but junk there too. Racks and racks of nothing but garbage. How is anyone supposed to dress when their choices are so shitty. I'd rather dress in all uniqlo for a fraction of the cost and be infinitely more fly. Or just buy tees and oxfords, some apcs and a pair of cps, call it a day.

what's considered "stylish" (both on here and just in general) =/= what's popular among retail chains and what they would have you believe looks good.

The problem is that the masses consume what is presented to them. It's either mall shit or louis vuitton in their eyes. It also has to do with their buys but if they bought some sf approved lines well and people were exposed to well designed garments i don't have any doubt they would sell. The problem also lies in educating the consumer and merchandising which are both key.

Yes. I've got a half dozen pairs of 511 and they are all over the place. The whites are fine, but some of the others esp the treated versions are funky. Not every one, so it seems that some of the washes/treatments might f@ck up the fit. Still, they are a pretty nice jean for the price. The cut works for me.

Part of the problem is that if you are buying for a nationwide chain, your options actually become more limited. You need to find suppliers that have reliable supply chains and can also produce in the volume you need, and also meet strict shipping deadlines. In addition, the lines have to have good marketing and PR, because you can't necessarily rely on sales associates to know much about small brands, much less properly merchandise them or educate the customer.

The other issue is pricepoints. Everything we talk about here is exorbitantly expensive for the majority of customers.

Damnit, I was just wondering about this. That one Style Inspiration tumblr is like Synthese bingo; and every time those white 511s popped up they looked so much better than mine.

It's a total crapshoot. My white pair definitely fit the "best" out of any that I own. DL, are you (I assume you are) taking the same size in all of them? The last time I went in I just grabbed a few of the same pair and tried them all, but that is mostly because actual inseam length seems to vary greatly. My black pair look fairly normal, but I've tried others that have a pretty weird rise/crotch. The blue pair that I need to replace is also the only pair I have that has ever shrunk permanently. Not entirely sure what goes on over there. Like parker said, though, they fit well enough for the price, if you can deal with the anti-fit thing (size down, everyone!)

I think it's great that everyone else is buying crappy clothes.

Is it?


I have a couple friend who wear A&F and it seems like it's priced close if not over what most SF SW&D brands.
