If they fit my slightly larger than desirable waist, the next consideration is do I wear them as wide legged as Nigel intended or do I get the legs tapered.
The Selvedge Workwear pants feel a bit strange in cut when you first wear them - They have a dungaree 1930's jean workwear cut with a low crotch (am I allowed to say 'Crotch' in polite circles) OK - saggy arse ! which, when you look down on them when you are wearing them look strange, particularly when they are new and the fabric is stiff.
They are roomy - my 30 inch waist ones came in at 33 inch
My advice is to try them and look at them in the mirror with a bit of distance to get a proper idea of how they look, then give them lots of wear which really breaks them in as you would dry denim.
let us know how you get on and we want photos
oh and definitely wear them with braces but experiment - Nigel has some new ones out with an embossed logo in the leather or dare I say it, some ones from Levi Vintage/Originals
