thanks. so are all these roughly the same in terms of quality?

I don't have any first hand experience with any of these jeans. There is a thread called something like "I Have a Jean" where they would probably know more. Also search the forum for the brands, I believe Raleigh and LVC have their own threads. I've heard good reviews on Raleigh. LVC might be more of what you're looking for as you like the Levi's 514 fit.

Hi everyone,

 

I am new to the fashion community and learning new things every day. I have a very noobie question here; How should jeans fit? And I don't mean after you shrink your denim if its unsanforized, etc. I mean how should jeans fit once they are worn in and all. One inch of space from the waist? Snug fit? I apologize for not having all the technical terms here, but as I said, I am new!

 

Thanks for any feedback,

 

Sidney Savage

^ They should just fit you.  And by this I mean within 20 or so wears, the jeans shouldn't be too tight or snug anywhere.  You'll know by looking in a mirror and wearing the jeans if they fit.  I have blanket lined jeans that have more than an inch of space in the waist but fit in the thighs, calves,  and crotch perfectly and thus fit me.  There's a happy medium between too small and too large and that's what you want to find.

 

@M. Charles: I have no experience with Raleigh but I'd say go check them out if you can try them on.  Remember with raw denim the waist is going to stretch out so if you can button all the buttons and it doesn't feel painted on, you're golden.  I like LVC but I only have the rider pants.  They do use Cone Mills denim but most of it is made in Turkey unless specified made in USA.

i prefer american made similar to levis 514 in fit.

I just bought a pair from these guys http://taylorstitch.com/ and the jeans are awesome. Free shipping both ways and great service. $128-$145 handmade in the USA with Japanese selvedge denim, whaaat?

Can recommend Left Field, Taylor Stitch, Imogene + Willie, and Stronghold as well.

has anyone done group buys here from "larger" bootmakers like chippewa, red wing or thorogood?

what do you guys think of this brown leather bomber jacket:

is this jacket suitable for a 27 y/o wearing it with denim jeans or chinos and dark brown chukka style boots/boat shoes ?

initially i was looking for a black leather bomber jacket, but i realized you can't wear a black jacket with brown footwear and as i dot't like black footwear unless its shoes with my work suit, i was thinking this bomber jacket would go well with my dark brown chukka style boots/boa shoes + a casual shirt

 

or is it best to get a black leather bomber jacket with black footwear>?

 

do leather bomber jackets go well with OCBD plain shirts? its seems to much of a formal/casual clash?

 

 

- would be worn casually in the evenings and weekends - out with girlfriend or friends, cinema, restaurants, pubs/bars, shopping, etc

 

ay thoughts?

What do you guys think of these? I'm debating on this, when I tried them on they were super comfortable. However the design is a little different from most shoes which is why I'm hesitant.

looks like a nice, casual jacket. depends on how it fits though.

The key is to avoid looking middle-aged so you want a trim fit.

New Question:

I always have a tough time figuring out the inseem that I want. I want to avoid pants that are too short (like if my socks are showing-- way too short). I used to buy slimmer pants with a smaller leg opening so I was able to buy them a little long, and they would stack a little on the bottom. Now I've gotten more into straight fit pants, but the problem with that is the leg opening is sometimes big enough that it will drag under the shoe. What now? I don't want to go too short, but since they won't stack-- I can't go too long.

An obvious fix would be cuffing the pants. I don't personally mind how it looks with khakis or jeans, but is it a fashion faux pas? And are there any other tricks to avoid dragging?

I know what they are. Hemming would make it shorter and thats not what I want-- because I'd inevitably decide later that it's too short. Tapering will make the opening smaller, and I like more of a 16.5 inch opening.

I, for one, have no idea what you're asking. What's wrong with hemming them to a slight break? If you want them to stack without stepping on them, you need a taper.
