Thanks, guys. I'm afraid that my lack of fit pic posting has led to an increase in the size of my upper frontal mass. Back to teh manorexia for Dig. plain.gif

What I wore today:

 

 

 

And, with more than a bit of trepidation, and what I know you're all looking forward too (if only to enjoy ripping it to pieces! devil.gif ), here's what I picked up from being hemmed:

 

 

Feel free to give an absolutely honest critique on the jeans fit (although be aware that the specific shirt & jacket are just what I happened to be wearing anyway, though I did swap the shoes for a more appropriate boot). Whether it's deemed good or bad, this will be my last experiment trying to get a pair of jeans that looks OK. From my position of ignorance, I will say that I prefer how this pair looks in the mirror to any of the other attempts I've made, and actually, they feel a hell of a lot more comfortable to wear around the waist/thigh, which is quite strange considering they both sit lower and are heavier/stiffer & more tapered than previous pairs. They've actually naturally settled even a touch lower since I took the photos (maybe about half an inch or so further down), but I can't be bothered to retake the pics.

pre-distressing is bad and the rise is too low to tuck a shirt in. stop trying to wear them like trousers - they aren't.

just to humor me - take a picture with shirt untucked, roll the hem twice, and pull the pants down lower on your hips an inch.

Holdfast...oh my.

Out of curiosity, I just took the belt off to see whether they can shuffle down any lower; the combination of the jeans' waist circumference and my hips mean that the waistband literally cannot be pushed down any further. Physics prevents it. :)

 

As mentioned above though, they are now about 0.5" lower than pictured, as they did settle a bit as I've been moving around since then.

Are they pre-distressed? I didn't even notice, lol. Looking at the photos, I suppose they are, very slightly! Funnily enough, the photos do exaggerate this aspect though, compared to what I see in the mirror IRL, even now I know it's there. Maybe the processing I did to the pics showed it up more? Don't know.

 

In the interests of education, what's the issue with pre-distressing? Is it the specific pre-distressing on these jeans, or a philosophical objection to pre-distressing in general, similar to how some guys prefer shoes with no artificial patination and others like the kind of artificial vintage effects you see with, say, Berluti?

 

I wear jeans approximately once a month, at most, so I think waiting for natural distressing is a bit of a non-starter in my life. :)

 

BTW, how can the rise be low enough to mean no tucking in of shirts, and at the same time, also need pushing down a further inch as per your first post? I really don't understand!

I live to entertain! :D

 

As I said, it's my last experiment with denim, so it would be unfair not to share the results with an expectant world, even if it's a fail. The IgNoble Prize awaits!

Doc, that's the wrong cut for you. Try the 514's. They're the midpoint between the 501's and the 511's. Will give you a larger rise and a bit more room in the thigh/crotch. Also, get the length a size longer.
