BOM006 tapered. Jay recommended I skip the initial soak and give them a week or so to settle.

@cyc wid it

Those Momo may not fit you the best, this is called cut (pattern). You cannot simply size down if the cut does not suit you.

The taper suits your build, this is called silhouette

If you want to hem the inseam, you can but I think it looks fine. Will be better after the denim settles. Everyone has their own preference

Someone mentioned higher rise bottoms, this is called proportions and FWIW the oversized top helps keep both ends balanced IMO. Some other points to take note is your shoulders, which makes a 19cm taper suitable.

This is what I think from looking at a photo. IMO I think everything looks fine. Some members say size down probably do the the bunching that is around your knee down. However, keep in mind the denim is still new, unworn, and not laundered.

Yes I know what you mean by pattern, if I had to I would recut the whole leg. The fabric is worth the money and risk IMO. As far as proportion issues, I do struggle with it. Even though I've been nursing a shoulder injury for over a month, I'm not shrinking much more anytime soon and I have a longer torso. Super easy for me to look top heavy. I've got plenty of chunkier knits now, but that doesn't solve my bottom half issues. I've tried a variety of cuts (besides super slim and super full) and still haven't quite figured it out.

What do you feel wrong with the bottom half in that photo? I think it looks fine. If you tapered it anymore I think that is when you run into your top heavy problem. You should stick with this cut.

Lol @ grizzly bear's advice. Looks fine cyc. Don't think too much about it.

frown.gif this shouldn't be so hard. I mean with some settling I'm sure it will look "ok" as is, but "ok" doesn't cut it. Breezy gets away with much cleaner and slimmer bottom halves I dunno.
post #109177 of 117677
And yet it is. I had two pairs slimmed down this week (to 6.5" and 7") -- they still look sloppy. facepalm.gif

I guess it's not exactly clear to me what fit you're looking for on the lower half

these look mostly fine, though perhaps would have sized down one due to the excess fabric in the thighs moreso than excess in the calves. they're also a bit long (you've got stacking everywhere), so should prob hem as well
post #109179 of 117677
Can't size down anymore for waist sanity, these don't stretch like APC.

If I knew what would look best I would just buy/alter to make it so...
post #109180 of 117677
everything stretches, just not 3in in the waist like apcs. take it you tried a size down and didn't work?

1. militarism. this category could be interpreted in a wide variety of ways, since so much of men's fashion has been adapted from military wear. reference the ww1 colonel with the shiny boots, the pilot with the oversized ma-1, or the guerrilla fighting the techno-fascist forces of evil in the year 2099. this last possibility could also be used for category #2:

2. thriving post-apocalypse. this category might seem to favor those with "darker" garments in their closet, but i think that with some creativity even the stodgiest cm-er could excel. perhaps you're the mayor of a broken city of survivors. how will you style your glen plaid suit with that fur coat you just found in the abandoned mansion? and will it successfully conceal your shotgun? i wouldn't want this to shade too far into cos-play, but i think it could be fun to see what ideas/references people come up with (and remember, emphasis on thriving post-apocalypse).

3. garments with history. incorporate a (some) garment(s) that has a notable history. this can either be because it is unusually old-- whether it was passed down from your grandfather or discovered at a thrift store-- or because it has (and you would be willing to share) some personal story behind it. that is to say, the history can be just in the garment or in your particular relationship to the garment (or both). i imagine that some entries would incorporate the best features of posts from the contentedness thread.

thoughts?
Love the ideas 1 and 2 (like many others!) when do we start? smile.gif

Could be differences in build and general style.

I vote for challenge #1––a lot of people could participate and I know that some (Parker, Synth, YohjiCrew, the list goes on) could spin it in really interesting ways. But I may be biased.

Still on the fence about 5-zip.
