I was thinking he's got big shoulders and arms, but the rest of him is very lanky. Not sure if going one size up would do the trick.

I agree. I think one size up would be too big. It would look better if the tank were a little longer, though that may just be a preference thing. It's a good fit overall.

actually, i wish it was one size up myself, its kinda short and very fitted as is. Its an old Nudie tank (style is called bosse) from maybe 2005 or 2006 and i have another one in a different print that is a size larger... i like the fit of that one better but the print isnt nearly as good.

Tank is ugly as sin and two sizes too small.

Sizing down is the first step. Moccasin socks provide friction and reduce the perception of slippage. Alternatively, you can use slip sole inserts (personal preference) for extra grip without any flashing of uhmm...socks.

I've tried many "true" no-show moccasin socks and they are annoyingly high maintenance -- keep slipping off. angry.gif Slip soles keeps my shoes smelling good without me having to constantly adjusting my socks.

I went down half a size for those loafers, and that did the trick.

It gives you knee bags like none I have ever seen as well. Maybe taper them from the knee down to take out some of the bags and the looseness around the ankle?

Spoilered all the comments so my post doesn't take up three screens worth of scrolling. I'm kinda surprised that slim, raw denim would be so controversial. laugh.gif

Jeans are SExDBxSxS12s from Self Edge. They're contest jeans, and I've pretty much signed on to wear them until next April.

I wouldn't necessarily call the top block or thighs tight - I've got these sagged completely below my hipbones and a few inches to pinch on the legs - and the leg opening is 7.5" according to the measurements chart. I think the stacks probably make the jeans appear wider below the knee, because there isn't a huge amount of taper I could add to these guys (a hem below 7" is difficult for my size 12 feet to get through). I bought TTS at a 30, and I'm sure I could've sized down to a 29 (although I'm glad I didn't). As it is, I can take them off without unbuttoning them.

All my qualifying statements aside, thanks for the feedback. These are definitely stiff, fairly heavy jeans - 22 oz. - and not what you'd call summer pants. The knee bags are probably particularly awful because it's been a minute since I've washed them. I think there's a decent chance that these would mesh better with my summer fits with better fades (they're ridiculously stubborn about holding onto their indigo), and yeah, I'd probably change things up if I hadn't signed up for the contest.

Also, jwied tank is awesome and hilarious (not sure I'd wear it, but whatever), and @ Nosu3, the tank is BDG (urban outfitter's house brand) "PE Tank". Total plebe status, but I like them a lot. Curved hem, and the tri-blend material feels better than most 100% cotton tanks I own. My only qualm is that they could be a little bit longer.

+1 to jet comment re that tank, that fucker is nasty looking.


Lel many good pics lately; hope you are having fun; I packed 2 pairs of decent shoes (jil derbs and cps) for my current trip and was happy that I did. The rest of my clothes are basically trash that happens to fit okay, but I really didn't want to forgo decent shoes.

Glad you got those ss11 shorts Ivwri, they look great on you. I need a pair + a pair of the non-cuff shorts (the viscose/linen blend are beautiful!).

Thanks guys. Really like the feel of them and pocket placement (as always) is divine happy.gif

The non-cuff shorts actually look pretty nice from what I've seen of them. Lemme know if you find a second one in a size 4! biggrin.gif

jwied: Yeah I think definitely go a size up on that top. A part of me does like that pattern though.

Great pics Lel!

as i said, its mainly the heaviness/stiffness that i felt was throwing things off.

And, well said about the tank, thats how i look at it too. Cant wear it without feeling a little tounge-in-cheek, in a good way.
