jean fit: just right or too much

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was wondering, should I be able to pull off my jeans with the zipper/button on? My jeans pull off just barely. Does this mean I need a shorter waist size? or is this a proper fit. My jeans are designed midwaist. They fit fine, but if I put alot of stuff in my pockets, they do sag.

Jeans tend to stretch, so I'd say that if they're sagging now, they'll be falling off later.

Unless, of course, you're going for the baggy look.

Yes, you need smaller pants. That is not a proper fit unless you are a sack of shit.

The jeans cognoscenti hold that they should be tight fitting. It is reputed that cowboys bought the tightest fittin raw jeans and then soaked them while wearing them. This was to avoid extra fabric that could catch on something while on a horse.
All the designers are showing tight fitting pants now. Baggy seems the way of past fashion.

Yes, they are too baggy.

Current fashion dictates that jeans should not be loose and comfortable. Instead they should be tightly adhering to a properly shorn set of jewels, and should ideally squeeze out every last ounce of your manhood. Consider women's jeans if men's jeans do not give you the proper look.

do they look good? If so then it's the right size.

I would say if they fall off your ass while walking around, they are too big, unless you are going for "sag" at which point they are too small. They dont need to be ball crushing tight, but you should be able to walk without pulling your pants up all the time. If they are loose enough your mom would yell at you to pull up your pants, get a smaller size.

Another problem with them being that loose is your friends can easily pants you, so make sure to wear clean underpants.

Thanks for all your input. Some of the responces have been helpful and others have been witty.
I lost some weight since the last time i bought the jeans, so i guess its not fashionable for me to wear them. However, I measured my waist and i measured the jeans, my waist is 31in and the jeans are 35in. The jean has 31 printed on them. Am I measuring them wrong? These are GAP jeans btw. Sorry if this comes as a newbie question?

I would disagree with this. I've seen collections going both ways. One thing that is certain is that jeans are not major parts of lots and lots of upcoming designer collections. Streetwear doesn't take all it's cues from the catwalks anyway, and vice versa. However, mainstream designers, with very few exceptions, are usually following rather than leading street fashion.

Indeed, S/S 07 are going for a more relaxed fit. I'm not talking about denim, though.
