Yes that is exactly what happens when I sit down. They haven't been washed yet so they may still shrink. Deciding on returning them for a size bigger or keeping them.

The jeans look fine, but should go up an inch in size. They're also a bit long, but you can roll them up. If you got 32x34 then try 33x34 or 33x32. As you wear them, they will stretch a bit, but not so much in the thigh area. Mostly around the crotch, seat and waist. Wash them in cold water and hang them out to dry (don't put them in the dryer) and they will only shrink back to their original size. I don't really like the sneakers you linked to. They're too casual. Just get the Topsiders in the natural leather color. You really can't go wrong with those. They look good with anything, they're a bit dressier than sneakers, and they're not expensive.

Grammar lessons may serve you better than clothing, if you're applying to college.

I'm just not a fan of the Topsiders for everyday use. Getting them for work is a different story but everyday use it just wouldn't be practical for me. I ride a BMX bike everywhere so I need something that's snug and has some traction.

The Five Ten Ba5ics would look nice and I do believe they would go with most clothing items. You've pointed me in the right direction so I value your input on the shoes and the outfits I posted earlier.

For riding a BMX bike, those sneakers will do just fine. I ride a vintage 3-speed with a chainguard, so I can wear any shoes I want.

This guys tie is hanging way too low, it should not go past the belt buckle.

Ended up getting another pair of 511's but this time in 34/34. Right size in the legs but not a size to big in the waist and to long in the legs. Before I return em...Do they shrink when you them?

I think you are just making a case for the bowtie.

Has anyone told this guy to go lurk on SW&D for two months yet? Because that's what he should do.
