I found Taylor Stich to be better for this.

Not a real big fan of their styling, from what I've seen...

In what way? Not so much into the whole cali skater thing, but their jeans tend to look just like any other mid-range selvedge to me.

The nudie's just appeal more to me.

Yeah if you are looking for a non raw and treated denim similar to the nudies then brands like Taylor stitch and a lot of the denim brands discussed here won't have what you're looking for.

Well, unfortunately the Nudie's didn't work. I like the jeans a lot, they're just far too tight around my thighs. I'm by no means large, about 5'11 180 but I couldn't imagine anyone over 150lbs being able to comfortably sit down in these jeans. Any other recommendations for brands that would fit someone around the legs that lifts? My fiance is in NYC for the weekend, so if possible I could have her grab a pair if someone can give me something I can view online first.

anybody have any experience with Rising Sun jeans? quality, fit, worth it at 50% off? Thx!
post #19510 of 20783

Rising Sun makes some good product, made in the good ol' USA.  Nice trim, heavier fabric and attention to detail like the old Levi's.

 

I personally like the Straight Razor fit, more like a slim straight.

 

I assume they are roughly $300 retail... so at $150 probably not a bad deal if you're looking for that nostalgic, tough jean for your wardrobe IMO.

Based on the measurements they look similar to the Nudie's I'm going to return. I am a 33 waist in dress slacks, so I went with a 34 in the nudies. I guess I could go up to a 36 and hope the thighs have more room, but I'd have to rely on a tailor getting them down to a 34 waist. I have never tailored a pair of jeans before - what is reasonable here?

you do know depending on the denim the thigh area could stretch a little to a lot. why do you think a pair of denim that might fit the way you exactly want fit all loose after a year or more?

They aren't going to stretch this much - they're too tight from the knee up. I'm also not going to bank $200 on that.

This might sound like a very odd question and I am not so sure it has come up before. I am looking for a denim brand, or model or whatever that looks good with guys with knocked knees. I wear a bespoke suit everyday and my tailor corrects my trousers for this issue by essentially creating my trousers with a shorter outseam relative to the inseam, or another way to look at it is pulling the extra fabric that buckles on the sides of my knees up into the waistband so that it falls straight down and doesn't create that \ / silhouette. Clearly, I am not asking for skinny jeans but rather a straight leg cut. My girlfriend is making me go hiking, and to these things called "barbecues" this summer and I have to get jeans. Does anybody know of a style that I can wear that my legs won't look wonky? Unfortunately I won't be wearing them enough to warrant bespoke ones so I figured I would ask the denim experts before trying on everything under the sun. Thanks a bunch.

^ I'm not dismissing the fact that it concerns you, but honestly just asking if it will make that much of a difference in a pair of jeans? If you find something affordable and comfy with a bit of room they will probably stack a little or you can just cuff them. Jeans don't wear like proper trousers so a "less exact" fit is probably more forgiving. Do you not ever wear jeans or have any others? I personally don't know of a particular brand whose original cut would compensate for this... have you tried on anything that fits reasonably well the outseam notwithstanding?
