36.5 Waist (Jeans are a 34)
11 Front rise
16 Back rise
12.5 Upper thigh
9 Knee
8 Leg opening
32.5 Inseam

Thanks in advance to anyone who can recommend some options!

Any slim / straight leg jean will work for you. APC NS, RRL Low Straights, N&F slim guy, Tellason Ankara for the sub $200 options, plenty more if you want to pay a bit more

Thanks.

On some Edwins like Edwin Sen you can receive fast and strong fadings if really seldom washed. Similar like Nudies jeans. The fabric of Edwin Sen is thinner.
Most Irton Hearts are made out of heavy weight cotton and are slow fading pants

So, I want a fit like this: http://i.imgur.com/yaoAs.jpg. I don't want them to stack too much at the bottom but I don't want them to be too short either. I just want a nice tapered fit like in the picture above.

I recently got a pair of 3Sixteens hemmed and they ended up too short. They are about an inch above the bottom of my foot with no shoes on and they just look weird when I'm wearing them. For my next pair, how long should they be after getting them hemmed for a fit like the ones above? What should I tell the tailor regarding the break?

A couple inches longer than whatever you have currently? Maybe 4 depending on how you plan on cuffing them?
post #16790 of 20548
I'm a 28" waist and a 32" leg - so on the small side. The problem is I would like to cuff some jeans, but a 34" leg cuffed will make the jeans to small. I don't know of any designers that do a 28/34 - So I thought I'd ask if any of you do?

Also what brands do good quality raw denim in size 28/32 for around £150?

Thanks,
IDH

IDH -  Naked and Famous Skinny Guy cut has about a 37" length, would that be good for you? You can always find good deals too specially around now with all the sales.

I've seen a lot of Made and Crafted jeans in department stores, and IMO, from the models that I've seen, the denim quality of Made and Crafted is much lower than LVC. The construction quality is a notch or two below as well.

Just looked on their website and the jeans look REALLY baggy and bunched up around the ankle, thats not really a look I like. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Anyone else have any other suggestions for me? Even if they are 28/32 raw denim.

Thanks.

after reading that guys post i was thinking the same thing but didn't bother writing it.
post #16797 of 20548
I suppose, I didn't think of that. Thanks
post #16798 of 20548
My go -to jeans lately have been a pair of RRL slim boot cut. While I love the way they fit, I'd like to try something with a higher rise and a slightly looser fit...preferably straight leg or slightly boot cut. Can anyone make any suggestions?
post #16799 of 20548
hey guys - more or less a jeans noob here looking to buy a decent pair of selvedge blue denim. I'm relatively skinny 5'11"/140pounds with 30" waist but relatively muscular thighs. Budget is $100-200, with a fit thats not too skinny. Any specific brand/style recommendations? Thanks in advance.

at 5"11 and 140lbs if you say muscular thighs all your weight must be there or something because at that weight and height you must be slim
