It was a truthful comment about the forum. People just aren't learning much. Much copying of trends instead, in this case slim-fit. (Interesting as to why slim-fit is so desired. It's probably more than just conformity.)
Adding slightly to the pants width wouldn't make them wide-legged. Even if the legs were less bowed, the pictured cut wouldn't be flattering, bringing out hips that are relatively wide (should have said yesterday, add to the hips measurement). And pelvic tilt with a normal-sized behind also suggests against slim-fit. That probably is contributing to the rise issue, yes, but ultimately the whole seat is too small. (Sorry for the visual this produced) If the cheeks are clearly defined or there's a shelf from the side, the seat is too small. (Here's where an actual tailor could step in to estimate how much could be salvaged via alterations, though it almost definitely wouldn't be worthwhile.) The pants aren't horrible, but if this forum were functionally optimally (educating and guiding more), they would have turned out better. (The MIC site already had an article that would have warned against slim-fit in this case.) Anyway, rather than estimating new measurements for a remake, it might make sense to send the pictures to the maker, who if competent ought to be able to calculate adjustments based on that and the original measurements.
This is better, thanks, and I agree with most of what you said. When I say slim fit, I'm probably using the terminology in a misleading way, and has nothing to do with anything I learned on SF. As a matter of fact, if you look at the MC WAYWRN thread, there's nobody there wearing anything really slim. I think people on SF (especially the MC side) stopped advocating too-slim stuff a few years ago. What I meant to say is that I'm looking for something flattering without being too baggy, but it's pretty clear that I hold most of my weight in my butt/hip/thigh area. I'm 6'4" and weigh 195, so I'm not overweight or anything like that at all, but I am thicker in that specific area, so I'm always hesitant to just but bigger pants because I don't want it to throw off the rest of my physique. I think these should be let out in the seat a bit and add a little bit of fullness from the thigh to the knee. They're not that slim from the knee down as it is, and I could probably reduce the inseam a bit. I have an email in to the maker as well, so I'm waiting for a response from them. I agree they don't look awful, and again the robo-pose really exaggerates the fit issues, but I'd like to work on cleaning up the remaining issues I still have.
