I found deep navy to be limiting if one isn't pairing it with something lighter, but I guess that's obvious

 

Is the slim pants trend dying out? I like how tapered ankles show off the shoes...

Hi, I've been searching for some info regarding the raf Simons sneakers sizing, l'm interested in buying a pair of Raf velcros, but not sure about the sizing as I read that they either fit TTS, half a size big or a full size big..

The pair i'm interested in is size 40. I usually wear tts (MMM GAT = 41, Lanvin / KVA = 40)... Can someone confirm if Raf Velcros in size 40 would fit me? thanx in advance.

I'm looking for a quality black t-shirt that will go with black jeans and will look stylish (more movie star and less Hanes t-shirt). Suggestions? Price range starts at $25 and I'd like to keep it less than $100 max in general.

Hmm. Just trying to imagine that right now, but not sure if it would settle things.

I'm not tall by any means, but I'm a tad taller than average (6' or 6'1), and the majority of my height comes from my legs, with a slightly shorter torso. My ass is high, so if I get a low rise, I imagine it would be sitting mid ass as opposed to on top/waist. Or am I mistaken here?

If it helps, often when I sit down in jeans/pants that are a tad loose and don't wear a belt, the underside (back) would slide down, exposing crack if I didn't wear proper boxer-briefs and some top that covered that area.

I'm the same height with the same build. If I wear jeans with anything more than an 11" rise, they sag down with a lot of room below the crotch and in the back. Every pair of jeans I wear will sit at the same spot, which is my natural waistline, if you're tall and have long legs, you probably have a lower than usual natural waistline, as is in my case, or else proportions will look off. A mid to low rise means your pants will fit better at the crotch. A mid to high rise means, with the waist sitting at the same height on your body, the extra length of your jeans will fall below your crotch and ass and create sag, which is what you're trying to avoid. It restricts movement especially when the fabric is rigid.

is there any euro to US proxy services?
post #15879 of 16552

On that note, does anyone know of any proxies for Korean orders? Thanks.

One of my suit jackets (of admittedly poor quality) looks considerably worse after only two trips to the drycleaners, presumably because it's a glue job, but the trousers to go with it are perfectly fine. I was wondering if it was a faux pas to wear the orphaned trousers or if they will be easy to distinguish from stand-alone slacks. They're a medium grey glen plaid, and I kind of like check wool slacks on their own. I was planning on getting some Prince of Wales pants to fulfill this role. I don't really want to look like a chump who's wearing a pair of pants without the cheap jacket but I kind of like the look of them.

Does anyone know where I could find buttons like the ones on this Visvim jacket? I'm looking to modify a vintage painters jacket I have.

Thought more about it and it seems you guys may be on the right track. Realised that I've mainly tried mid-rise denim. Any ideas on what I should go out and try on next in regards to low-rise raw denim ideal for someone with thick thighs (cycling and fencing) and fairly thin legs below the knees? I understand I won't find the ideal fit, and will most likely have to take them to get tapered below the knees, so that isn't the biggest issue. Anything in the ~200 range should do the trick.

what are your true waist and thigh measurements? Waist as in where your pants would normally sit, and thigh at right below the buttocks, should be the thickest part of your leg.

Can anybody point me to some brands that make a cuffed short? I don't really know the correct term, harem? Sarouel? Like a baggy short (not necessarily drop crotch) with a cuff/abrupt taper around the knee?
See it a lot on runways (damir, RO, Geller, Plokhov, Public School, KVA even DVN) but have never really found them for sale. And yes I've looked at all those brands and not found any.
Thanks
