The Flat Head 3012 is a great jean with a straight leg and solid taper but is 14.5 ounces, which is relatively heavy but probably not what you're looking for. Try Momotaro 0201 Once Washed at 15.7 ounces or 0701s at the same weight, Warehouse 660s are great jeans but 14 ounces wouldn't necessarily be considered "heavy", Samurai S5000vx which are 17 ounces unsanforized, so they'll get heavier after their initial soak, Studio D'Artisan SD-103 at 15 ounces unsanforized, Oni Denim - Blue Fit at 18 ounces and Low Tension 20oz Secret Denim Tapered Leg. All heavyweight options, should contain your dick and balls problem and no APCs or 3Sixteens.  

I SO wish all of these great denims came in a 23" waist!!!!

Even when I can source great Japanese denim, I have to get it custom made or tailored!!

Currently it's too hot for even me to wear heavyweight, so I'm rotating PBJ purple face and my lovely 3x1 Biker jeans....usually hate stretch denim but these are lovely.

You guys have such a great selection of amazing jeans to choose from - can't understand why girls would want to wear 7 for all Mankind etc, or even worse jeggings!

Men's clothes are much nicer than women's - unless you're curvy and can wear sexy dresses and high heel stilettos, which I can't because of the osteoporosis in my spine and hips..

I hope insomb can find some great jeans in that impressive selection!smile.gif

Looking for recs for a new pair of denim. I would prefer selvedge, but they don't have to be. I would prefer raw, but they don't have to be. They do need to have a high(er) rise, roomy in the thighs, and a pretty aggressive taper through the knees and the leg opening.

Currently I have a pair of APC NS, but the low rise (low to me anyways) and snugness in the thighs makes them too uncomfortable for me. I also have a pair of KMW 1950. The rise is nice, but these are too baggy. I'm looking for something that it sort of in between the two.

ROFLMAO!

You sir, should size accordingly, instead of sizing down on a cut that does not suit you.

Yeah, well I must have read at least a thousand times to size down two, including from APC themselves, and it's supposedly a "straight cut"...couldn't get used to it. Tried Momotaros, love them.

The board says a lot of crazy, messed up things. I would think genital discomfort would've tipped you off immediately.

Are you a moron? Everyone sizes down 2 on APC NS.

What's up everybody?

 

 

New to the forum.

 

I'm a pretty stocky dude (5'9" 250lbs 40,42"-Waist 30"-Inseam, Fullback build, Large Thighs)

 

I'm growing out of my old wardrobe and I'm looking for a new denim.

 

Just feel like Levi 501s and 569s aren't cutting it for me anymore, need something different that would be better for me.

 

Any cut and brand suggestions are welcome.

 

From straight to relaxed to loose that is.

So? A pair of jeans fits if the cut is appropriate for your physique/build. Sizing down because every one says so doesn't make a jean that doesn't suit your build, fit better.

Well said!

My mom is tiny like me (150cm!), but very curvy- I'm more Twiggy!

She looks great in boot cut or relaxed fit, as does my sister, who is taller but the exact same build..whereas I would look like a golf club in boot cut jeans!

Lots of fit pics on the forum look like guys have sized down too much - no wonder you all get crotch blow out so often haha!!!

Seriously though, instead of blindly following fashion, especially with jeans, it's really important to get both cut and size right for your own body, not the body you want lol:)

I'm not denim expert, but honestly, at that waist size your options are going to be pretty limited. I have a pair of Kicking Mule Workshops in the 1950 fit, size 36. They could have easily accomodated a size 38 waist (I had the waist taken in), maybe a size 40. If you're on the border between 40 and 42 you may have to stick with levis.

Generally right, but occasionally BiG and SE carry models that go up to size 40"(at a much higher price than Levi's of course!!!)smile.gif

True, but mostly at an increased price than the normal sizes. Guess this has to do with special ordering bigger sizes. You could always opt to measure your best fitting jeans (waist, front rise, backrise, thigh, knee, hem, inseam length, especially the first three since these make up how the topblock fit according to your waist. E.g. If you have a short front rise, the waist normally is larger since the jean sits lower on your upper body) and then send the measurements to either SE, BiG or BO (or any other retailer) with the request to recommend a fitting pair based on the measurements you've given. I'm sure either Kiya, Gordon or Jay can help you out.
