Why don't MC guys taper thier pants? Even a slight taper makes the world of difference.
Most of them are, by our standards, fat. There are a few trim fellows over in MC that are supremely steezy (a few that come to mind: yfyf, maomao, parker, sterling gillette, gshen, IST66). No coincidence that they usually wear tapered pants.
And yes, it can be taken simply as an observation. It also can be taken as a veiled insult, in which case the insulted person is partially admitting that some cliches connected to being american may apply to him. However it can also be taken as criticism. In which case the addressed person may reflect, how he himself or his statement was taken by the other person.
DonÂ´t forget: Even if someone directly insults you. It is your choice to feel insulted, or be amused by it.

An 10.5-11 inch rise comes to a bit below my navel, which is where i'd ideally like the waist on my jeans to sit.
You've got your nomenclature mixed up. What you think is a "high rise jean" is in fact called a "low rise jean." Rise refers to the measurement from the bottom of your crotch (roughly your taint) to the top of your waist band, in the front it's called "front rise" and in the back, "rear rise." Generally only the front rise is mentioned and if which rise is not specified, assume a measurement refers to the front rise.
