hey guys.......derek, my name is derrick..haha.. well here is where I get most my jeans: - Sean John - Nautica - Tommy Hillfiger - Diesel I find that Sean John has really stylish jeans, but are more 'urban'. I think they are all basically the same. With jeans that are bigger, you have to low ride them a bit, because the measurement is wider near the bottom. If you pull them up, you will notice more space. All I use is basically a belt, and it holds pretty well. But what I notice is that even if the waist of the jeans are just 1 or 2 inches bigger, it makes you look like a punk, wearing really baggy pants. It's noticable. I advise that if you want to look clean cut, get jeans that fit. It's noticeable really depending on your style. If you want to lean towarsd the GQ look, for sure get jeans that fit. If you want to look more casual, 1 or 2 inches doesn't matter much.
