Fit applies not to actual measurements but the net effect of the look. You can have bell bottoms that "fit" right? But because of the flare of the leg, the overall aesthetic is affected. Note that a "1 inch" difference across a hem opening is actually 2" (you need to double it for the actual circumference). If you're aware a certain cut of pants has a wider leg opening, wouldn't that affect your purchase decision so that you opt for one that is a straight leg or tapered leg (or not purchase at all)? You don't need to go bespoke or spend tons of money to get the look you're going for.
i do not entirely disagree. i do pay attention to the general idea of things like leg opening. i would certainly not wear bell bottoms. i am saying merely that i think these particular pants have bottoms that are well within the range of looking fine. could they look EVEN BETTER ZOMG ELEVENTY NINER AND A HALF!!!!??? sure. there are few people here that post anything that could not be better in some way. i am in no way claiming to be in the better league of posters here in any regard, except maybe for not being a dick. all i am saying is that i have a point where i say to myself, this is good enough for now. the hems of my pants fall into that category.
the most important part is to be happy and not like like total crap. i think i have accomplished that much. more than that is striving for an even higher level of perfection, like gravy. im looking in that direction, but one thing at a time.
there is literally no correlation between the two, hence i will not even attempt to address the comment.
caseyfud, do you have a wife, children, job, and house to look after? I'm not saying Stitchy shouldn't be pickier about some of the details of fit, but you need to consider that "close enough" may be what he has time for. Or maybe he just hates shopping in stores. Who knows? In any case, that inch of hem is not the most pressing area for improvement.
SB gets it.
also, yes, i do not have the time out of the house/work to go to stores, nor are there any stores in bmore worth going to.
what he's trying to say (albeit poorly) is that if you're already taking the time to post here, take pictures of yourselves and purchase expensive clothing, you might as well bother to pay attention to the details anyway -- you've already opened the door, you might as well walk in.
for goodness sake, im a not saying i do not want to pay attention to details, or "walk in the door. " im saying i have priorities in where i focus my attentions. its not likei can decide to have certain things like exact size leg openings, and they magically happen. that would require finding a entire new selection of pants. considering the larger issues, and other areas that could use improvement, i think this falls pretty low on the totem pole. but more importantly, considering that the leg opening an all my pants falls well within the acceptable range imo, and had i been wearing different shoes, likely it would be a non issue, i really am not super concerned about this.
i think we have different priorities.
