What are the best jeans (and casual pants if you care to share) for a guy with no butt but a growing gut? I found some threads that covered this, but were years old (guessing their advice was out of date). I don't mind spending for comfort, but i'm also not a label whore. TY. Appreciate specific recommendations.

I'm not sure but I'll research it for you..

I'm guessing that it will the classic Levi's, Wrangler, Lee etc that will fit you best.

Anything with a bit of stretch will also be more comfortable on your waistline.

Some high end designers also do soft lighter weight pants or jeans with pleated fronts that will be comfortable and flatter you more if you don't mind spending.

Lots of brands will be ok if you just size up on your regular size..

Hope this helps..smile.gif

Hi I recently got a good deal on a pair of apc petit standards from a member on here. They fit like perfect now so I'm worried that they will stretch and get to big. They are a 33. Should I resell them and just go buy 32s? Or would it be ok to take them to a good tailor to be altered? I just really don't wanna go thru the hassle of selling them and ordering 32s, blah blah blah. Should I just get the waist and legs slightly taken in?

If they fit perfectly just be thankful that you got a great deal and get out and enjoy them!smile.gif

If they fit perfectly now, maybe they won't Stretch too much - too tight jeans on a guy (or a girl) can affect your fertility.

If he wants children one day it's not worth risking that just to wear the tightest jeans possible!smile.gif

SO.......long story short, my jeans got ironed !

 

So now a few pairs have a line going down and the mark doesnt seem to come off even after washing.

 

Anyway to save it?

post #20112 of 20762

I am starting a new job in Boston and the dress code is casual. Denim is allowed and that is what most people were wearing when I visited. I would like to buy some quality jeans that are fashionable but understated. I bought a pair of Joe's Jeans relaxed straight in dark blue. The material is a tad thin and stretchy. They fit me very well. I also have some 7 for all mankind that I got for $5 at goodwill that fit great. They are a little tighter, but comfortable. I don't want 5 pairs of the same jeans and I'm trying to get the opinions of people that have a better sense of style than me (that would be about everyone). Here are some guidelines:

 

Dark blue
No cuffs
No fraying
No fading

 

Thanks!

were they brand new and unworn? or did the guy wear them a bit before he sold them? if they're already worn, then they may not stretch out too much anymore. if brand new, then expect some stretch. it also depends on what fit perfectly means for you. are they pretty snug or do you have some room all around? it'll only stretch in areas on of tension so if they're pretty snug then it'll stretch a fair amount (again assuming they haven't been worn already) but if you have some room in the waist, thighs and knees then it won't stretch as much.

Just buy jeans with an inseam which is much too long, and then roll it up 2 or 3 times to the right length - it's called "cuffing"

Hope that helps!smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif
