What Ever Happened to High-Rise Jeans for Men? - Page 3
Styleforum Top Picks
30 have 11" front rise, 15" back...29 has 11" front rise, 14" back.
Where are you guys wearing your jeans that you need such high rises?
I like 10-11" I am short though but I don't think that has anything to do with it...the rise is the difference between inseam and outseam.
I tried on, then bought, a pair of Wrangler's Original fit jeans, and they fit the bill of being a highwaisted skinny jean. The waist came up above my navel, and they're a snug to tight fit in the seat and thighs. Plus, they're under 20 bucks. Pair them with a white tee and you'll feel like James Dean. Leave all the low rise jeans for the fat chicks to wear. (sorry all you fat chicks out there)
I bought a pair of Imperial Brand Shearer jeans recently. They have a 12"+ rise. Loving these jeans and my mate's fades on the Imperial Cattleman (low rise version of these jeans) were outstanding.

The black Shearer's are currently on sale at Half Sleeve, but will only ship sale items within Australia. They are based in Sydney: http://store.halfsleeve.net/product/imperial-brand-clothing-shearer-black
I'm about 5'9 wearing size 34 Shearer's, so the 12.7" rise is a little excessive on me. Obviously I'm not tucking my shirt in or showing off a bet.
