Slim or Baggy fit

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Hello Guys

What's the major preference out there? Slim Fit or Baggy fit jeans.

Thanks

Both have their place, but most of us prefer slim. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being painted-on tight and 10 being diaper-ass baggy, I'd say the ideal range for most of us is about 3-7.

This may already be obvious to many, but I prefer baggy. I find baggy jeans more comfortable, more relaxed, more in tune with my 'denim philosophy', more likely to be respected(I've childhood trauma of being taunted for tapered pants), and less threatening to my already tottering manhood.

Definitely baggy jeans are more "democratic" in that more people can look good in them. They also have the advantage of pairing well with both fitted and looser tops. The skinny jean-loose top combination is tricky and tends to make the wearer look like a chicken (fat body supported by skinny legs). Mainly because of that added versatility, my go-to jeans are baggy. Of course, quite a few people here wear only fitted clothes all the time, so that would explain why slim is more popular.

I'm siding with baggy. Not baggy with tapered legs, of course, but more of a stovepipe effect.

Slim: 3-5 on Brian's scale.

I like to wear skinny jeans baggy. Seriously, like sizing up on my Acnes.

Slim...2-5 on Brian's scale. The baggiest jean I like is the Regular Ralf or a classic 501 cut

Antifit, slightly baggy. Probably a 6 on Brian's scale.

I also like doing that, my acnes are 2 size up actually. I like how it falls but you gotta wear a belt.

I do this too (my latest 5EP straight downs and Corpus Fines are like this). Anti-fit all the way.

Anti-fit is a great term. Makes me feel good good good....

I like the term "relaxed. That's a pretty democratic term. All my favorite jeans are what I'd call relaxed. Far from slim, but not baggy (ie RB1, Rogan Originals).

My baggiest jeans are the nudie RR, I'm on 3-5 on the scale I guess.
