Anyone find that the tapered fit crotch area sits weird? I just got a pair and they fit perfectly everywhere, but the crotch just looks strange which is making me return them.

I'm a true 33" waist. According to the Blueowl measurements, the skinnys run true to size, so I thought I should get a size 33. How come so many people here recommend sizing up? Are the Blueowl measurements inaccurate?

 

What is the actual inseam on the skinnys? Blueowl says 36", Urban Outfitters says 34", and Context Clothing says 33.75".

go with the 28 they are a tap slimmer than the NS and the taper at the leg is more like a straight leg, which I think is what your looking for.

they are closer to a 36 maybe even a 35.5 I usually wear a 29.5 inseam or a 30 and had to take roughly 5inches of the bottom these run kinda like the N&f models. I say stick to that sizing SG= Skinny Straight, WG=Straight Taper, SG= Straight leg 

hope this helps.

Inseam is 36" I believe, loooooong.
I think I took off like 4" + a taper.

I went with skinny, true to size. Fits well

We ship worldwide and always use USPS Priority. To Canada, USPS will hand off to Canada Post, packages typcially take 7-10 days.

Unbranded inseams are inconsistent and depend upon the production run. Typically the skinny will be 35.5"-36". Straight and Tapered fits are usually 34.5"-35.5". If you need a specific inseam we can either look over our stock and find a specific length, or hem it to a shorter length at no charge.

I ordered a 33 Skinny and a 32 Skinny. The 32 fits great in the waist but is super tight around the thighs. The 33 fits great in the thights but is a little lose around the waist. I'm not sure which pair to keep. Are these jeans likely to ever stretch out in the thigh area or is that unlikely? Also, I've been working out and planning to put on about 10-12 more pounds so I'm not sure if I should go for the 32 or 33.

Go with the 33 and wear a belt you will be a lot happier in the end. From my experience they will stretch, but not much, slowly and over time. Post fit pics

Self Edge has a Union Special which is worth bragging about and will give your hem that rope effect once it fades, that is not to say other machines wont but they will most likely not be as sexy as the US. stirpot.gif

Correct, Union Specials aren't the only machines that can chainstitch, but "sexy as the US?" smh

Lockstitches rope, too, as it's not either/or when it comes to differentiating it with the chainstitch.

Frankly, I don't see the purpose in spending $25+, or essentially 25-50% the value of the jeans, to have something specially done. The brand is bargain-basement so if the point in purchase is "savings," the act implies being penny-wise, pound-foolish in some respect.

To each their own.

To be perfectly honest I agree. I assumed having a chain stitch would cost $15 maximum (because honestly anything more than that is absurd). A regular hem costs maximum 10 dollars, so I figured 5 dollars wasn't all that much more. No, i'm not going to pay $25 for a hem because that is really abusive. And they say there is a 2-3 day turnaround, which is also a bit crazy as a good tailor can have you come back in 20 minutes.

Again, if i can get it done for 15, i'll gladly do it, but anything more than that is highway robbery; if this were getting cuff buttons cut into my new Isaia suit and I had to choose between handswen button holes and machine made ones, considering the price I paid for the suit, then i would go pay the extra cash and have it done by hand. On a pair of jeans, no, sorry.
