I don't know if they would look good cuffed or not, or if they would stack nicely. I usually wear plain low coat shoes, like plimsolls or adidas sambas. I would like a slimmer look also, so should i size down in the waist? ( my waist is about a 30)
Don't size down, Ande Whall is TIGHT and runs completely true to size. You shouldn't need to size down for slimness, grifters are a very slim cut, I was a little worried they might have too much slack somewhere in them, but this is the fit I ended up with: (My natural waist is about 28", with the rise of the jeans though, where they sit is 29", and I'm wearing a 29x34, I could JUST button them up when I first put them on) http://img390.imageshack.us/img390/9...ftasideqn5.jpg
Which has loosened up JUST a little bit in the thighs, but still fairly snug, in the few days of wearing them, I love the fit. Sizing down on Ande's is not a good idea, I tried to wear 28x34 rakers and it was a disaster. I couldn't button them up... Cut was phenomenal though, probably absolutely perfect for someone with no ass.
