That's... exactly what my avatar is.

post #19187 of 20698

In the past I have worn a size 30 in J Crew's 484 fit. I bought a pair of lightly worn Baldwin Henleys in size 30 off ebay and they were a little more lose than I would like...definitely have to wear a belt with them.

 

I purchased a pair of the Henleys direct from Baldwin in a size 29. I wore them yesterday for the first time and they are TIGHT. The legs have the fit I want and the waist isn't TOO bad, but the seat and yoke are very tight. They squeeze my hips uncomfortably and did not loosen up enough after 10 hours of wear, although they have stretched slightly in the waist...to the point that they are easier to button than when I first tried them on. The triple stitching on the yoke seems to be what is bothering me the most.

 

So my question, will these stretch much in the seat and most importantly the yoke? I know I do not want a size 30 as I have tried them on and see what they will stretch to, but these 29's just seem so incredibly tight....to the extent that they even left marks on my hips. The fabric is definitely still very stiff, so my hope is that when it softens the pliability will make them more comfortable, but is it really possible for a pair of jeans that are currently uncomfortable to wear will stretch out enough that they are "perfect"? I would like to not have to wear a belt, but I would also like my hips to not feel as if they are being squeezed in a vice all day.

 

Thanks for any help.

Perhaps that model/brand isn't right for you. Sounds like your between sizes. Look for a different cut?

hmmm, ok so I have skinny thighs and am used to slim cuts like Nudie Thin Finns or Slim Jims... I just bought Dior 19cm's and sized down 1 (waist 30 inches, normally a 28 pant, bought them in a 27). Now, the waist is a little loose, the thigh is quite loose, and the hem is 6.5 which sounds narrow but they don't stack nicely at all. Ie they actually feel quite loose after 2-3 wears. Nobody would look at them and say they're 'loose' but I've seen this cut worn on other people (or the 17.5cm) and my understanding is tehy're supposed ot be almost skintight. There's quite a baggy bulge right under the pockets in the back too.

Question - do I taper them from the crotch down by a half inch so they fit the same as my APC PS's or just sell and go for the 17.5cm fit instead? I bought these Dior's for a great price which is the only reason I'd normally be able to afford them, I doubt I'll find the 17.5's at the same price

Looking for a new pair of jeans. My last pair (Unbranded) measurements were:

Size 28 (28" waist, 8.75" rise, 10" thigh, 7.4" knee, 36" inseam, 6.8" leg opening)

What's something w. similar fit? A bit skinnier in leg opening.

Perhaps something from Flat Head, Strike Gold or Ironhearts?

I'm a 32 waist and I fit really well in the LVC 1955 size 30. The only thing is if the thigh was a little looser and the front rise a little higher, but otherwise they are the best fitting pants I've ever had. I believe they measured 32" waist, 12" rise, 12" thigh.

 

I fit pretty well in a LVC 1966 size 30, although the top block is a little too tight.

 

Would anyone know what size I would be in the Sugar Cane 1966 or Sugar Cane 1955?

Thoughts on buying new jawns while going through weight loss? Just wait it out until I hit my target weight, or be impatient now and cut my losses when they don't fit later?

Depends on how much weight you have to lose, but in general, I'd say wait it out.

I wear a 34 waist now, when I get back down to where I want to be its 32. Thinking about getting a pair now and getting 32s. Probably my best chance of getting something Ill like in both scenarios.

How fast do you plan on losing weight? Are you going to stay there? Gain muscle? etc.

 

There's a lot of variables. For people that lift especially, since bodies are always changing.

Targeting fat (low carb). I do lift but I don't expect crazy gains.

I've gained like 30 pounds or so but I've only gone from a 32 to a 34.

I can only wear Levi's 569 jeans comfortable since I need the space and would like to know do any manufacturers make selvedge jeans in a similar fit?  All I can find are slim bootcut and normal.  Thanks for your help in advance.

That also gives you some motivation, and a benchmark to shoot for . . .
