Would go with a less deep indigo, though as long as it's distinguishable from my APCs.

My APC's are size 31 and the rise is about 10.5. I wouldn't go with less of a rise than about 10.25. I don't want skinny. I have short legs with thicker thighs.

Trying to stay around or under $200.

I'm considering Epaulet's Wilshire grey. Would consider Gustin's current Italy Black offering. Also Rogue Territory Stanton in tonal navy or black warp tonal.

Would love any other suggestions or reviews of those products. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Have never owned them but Gustins have a very strong following, if that helps:)

This is coming from someone with 3 pairs of Iron Hearts and a pair of flat heads. The cut of the 19cm is so on point and the made in Japan denim has lasted me 5 years with no blowouts or wear through (however the crotch seems to be starting to give way now, and I wore them everyday for about a year and a half then they got semi retired and get worn about once a week). Hedi probably uses the same fabric source for is MIJ denim for Saint Laurent as he did when he was at Dior, or similar. The only difference is the inseam. SL is 35 inches whereas Diors are 38, not exactly sure on the sizing since he has seemed to go with a slimmer taper with the SL cuts, but you cannot go wrong with a pair of MIJ Dior Homme Raw 19cms. Never tried on SL's but I am sure the fit is on point. I would just be sure to stick to the Made in Japan versions, selvage or not, they are of much higher quality.

Despite your high recommendations for MIJ Dior Homme jeans, I'm sure a lot of the price comes from being "Dior"
Personally I'd go with a real Japanese brand FWIW:)

Yes, a lot of the price comes from the name, but the fit is on point and the quality of denim is solid, it isn't selvage, but that doesn't mean its poorly made denim. Plus what brands discussed on here don't profit from their name and exclusivity? It's not solely high fashion that does this, cult brands with cult followings will demand premiums because there is a market for them. Yes, most can back up the premiums they ask with reasons, such as fabric sourcing and craftsmanship, but so can European fashion houses. At the end of the day, they're still profiting off their reputable name. Supply and demand.

I agree up to a point..

But having worked for both Valentino and Saint Laurent in my early 20s I know what the markups are - I think you'll find them much higher than SE or Big

I have problems with finding jeans that fit me due to squats. I have large thighs, large butt and narrow waist. If I find a pair of jeans that fit in the thighs and leg opening, then the jeans would be very roomy in the waist. I just bought a pair of jeans which satisfy all the criteria except for the latter. I'm thinking about going MTM (Luxire) to find the best fit. 

 

How do I tweak the measurements to fit my waist based on the said jeans? Could I just put all the measurements from my jeans but reduce the waist? Would the jeans come out disproportional?

Try Rogue Territory Stantons

Stantons don't have anything special going for them in that regard. Their thigh measurement per size is just about the same as a Momotaro 701
post #20679 of 20759

somets are the only ones i've found that have much wider thigh to knee and hem measurements.

who does a good low straight with some taper cut? thinking something like the somet 003 or rrl low straight but with more taper below the knee

beyond that, looking for something black and washed, and more 'luxe' than super slubby (along the lines of somets or DH). tried the john elliott 'cast' in their black washed model recently and was seriously underwhelmed

Saint Laurent Paris or DH (MIJ)...for both. Low rise, slim taper cut. RRL, coming from personal experience, is a very straight cut, no taper. DH fits similar in the thighs and tapers amazingly well (talking about 19cm, only size I will own). Somets or Dior Hommes... I don't think those two brands have ever been put in the same sentence before. That is most likely the first time that has ever been done in the history of the world. Congratulations.

A low straight cut with a taper? You know that a fit which features a taper normally isn't a straight cut and straight cuts do not taper, hence the name straight cut.
In other words, you are asking for something that doesn't exist. A tapered fit is a tapered fit.

I realize that (RRL low straight is a straight cut), which is why I'm asking for a straight cut with some taper (like the straightness through the knee, but want a bit more taper)

Defensive post is defensive. Your request wasn't very clearly phrased, for what it's worth.

There are skinny tapers, straight tapers, wide tapers etc... there are so many different variations of tapered cuts of jeans, what in the hell are you talking about? Jeans aren't just called "tapered," there's something called the top block of the jean that needs to be described as well. This area can be skinny, slim, straight, full, wide etc... I can't tell, was this a serious post?
