I don't know, I like them the way they look. I don't want a smaller opening for sure; as Drizzt said my feet are huge and look awkward very easily.

LD, probably sacrilegious to say it here with those specific jeans, but I'd have them hemmed with an inch or two extra in the inseam so you could stack or have a much smaller cuff. Otherwise, they fit you rather well. I like your fit as it looks like a Saturday afternoon with the stealthbeast jeans to give you internet respect. Well done.

Razuel,

One way to assess how they will look is to roll the jeans up an inch inside the jean (the opposite of a cuff) and see what you think. I don't think hemming them an inch or so will make the fit look worse, and it will probably clean it up a bit, however, it looks good the way it is, as well.

+1, can people please stop projecting their "well dressed youngster = ungrateful asshole" stereotypes on socal2nyc, I doubt he's trying to tell people to be richer or else he'll denigrate them, just that dressing in traditional menswear isn't only for middle-age people.

Thanks Fumma,
I got lashed at on the GQ/men.style forum for telling soemone that if they have to piss and moan about an 8% increase in Louis Vuitton prices they probably shouldn't be buying it.

Of course they went off about how I'm a snob and should get over it because I didn't earn my money and blah blah blah.

I was like DUDE I didn't say a single thing about myself being able to afford it and you can't, I was saying that when it comes to LUXURY goods if you have to worry about a price increase equal to sales tax you probably need to reevaluate your finances and spending...it's not like we're talking about gas, heating or groceries.

I agree. When it comes to luxury clothes/shoes esp.....let's get real, complaining about the price of a $600 shoe going up to $650 is pretty pathetic, as if those shoes were essential to your daily survival.

See, this is what I've been wishing that you would do. Its shows more of your legs and doesn't make your upper body look massive. Just that bit of waist showing and cutting the line makes a huge difference IMHO. I think this is a great look for you. Tuck away!

Heh, I might try to pull off this look once in awhile, but I'll prolly still mostly roll untucked because I just feel this look is just a pair of grey trousers away from business casual... Maybe I'll have to do something with more unusual details to avoid that if I'm going to try to wear it more.

I agree 100%, the proportions here are excellent (comparatively or not). More Daniel Craig than Hogan Knows Best, a very flattering look for you I think.

Also, I have to say that Braidkid consistently inspires me with the quality of his fits. Maybe this is just the lament of someone with an awkwardly disproportionate frame, but him and Sauce are undoubtedly the most impressively consistent purveyors of the mythical "perfect fit".

drizzt, I agree with berlin_report.

As I told you before I have the same problem with my chest to hips proportion. and It is true, tucking in and wearing higher rise trousers helps you a lot.

A more fitted jacket with waist suppresion and higher gorge also will do wonders.

lighten it up with a more colorful ( not plain ) shirt open collared and some neckwear ( not a tie )
