Meh. It's an entirely different context. I'm not sure I'd want to rock tapered trou in the office.

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.

Uh, jeans with a higher rise? Seems pretty self-explanatory. Nudie High Kais, Imperial Shearers.

I'm thinking specifically of about a 501 rise, so maybe that's more like mid-rise. Still, hard to find even that in a skinny jean.

that may be part of it. Taper does not look good on fat people.

I can see why you wouldn't want to look too sharp at some very conservative firms, but at most offices I don't think it is a problem.

High-rise refers to a high (large) rise measurement, not the position of the crotch seam.

Yes? What did I say that implied otherwise?

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.

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.

Don´t forget: Even if someone directly insults you. It is your choice to feel insulted, or be amused by it.

print this out, and put it in a box. In five years, open the box and read how fucking dumb you are

You were saying that girl jeans have high rises, they have very low rises... And fwiw 10.5-11 is mid, not high, rise

Now's a good time to blow a page discussing what color shoes to wear with white casual pants.

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.

Honestly I believe tan suede would be optimal, but I don't own a pair at the moment.

I have a pair of Margiela white summery cotton trousers, I can wear them with:

-Cognac zip boots
-chocolate chukkas
-white Repettos (need to drop by the store and get new ones)
-dirty white mmm perforated leather boots
-white mmm sneakers (high or low)

In other words I avoid black and go for browns and whites.
