I have a jean...(The Ultimate Jean Thread For Beginners) - ask questions here. - Page 1397

I've worn my unbranded for 3 months now, and I can say that they are great, but uniqlo are also great cheaper alternatives. Found them better than most at or above their price range (well if I factor in having bought them on sale). Highly recommend them. I've ordered another pair of Unbranded but tbh if I was short on money Uniqlo is better value for sure, though admittedly they don't have as many choices for fit.

Just looked at their sizing as I too am looking for a little less ball crushing slim fit.  Their thigh measurement is about the same as every other slim fit.  Their rise is a bit more.  

 

Let us know how these work out.  Was even considering the democratic fit on these for a comfortable pair, although I prefer the slim measurements on the leg.  Democratic looks better in the thigh.

I've been wearing them for a few days and they're working out great. It seems like they're cut to be a little (for lack of a better/actual word) blousier in the seat and crotch compared to most slim fit jeans, which wouldn't necessarily be reflected in the measurements. It's comfortable. The thighs on down are pretty trim, which is exactly what I was looking for. They're also well-made for the (low) price. I recommend them.

Ok, I'm trying to help my brother find some decent denim with a wider leg opening, and I'm specifically trying to steer him away from some of the recent also-rans that are cropping up (he was looking at these http://www.cultofindividuality.com/hagen-relaxed-in-dry/#.VNODG2h4otw for example).

Thus far, I've made the following recommendations:

- LVC 1947s
- Rogue Territory Stantons
- Left Field Greasers
- Tellason Ankaras
- 3Sixteen SLs

Any other suggestions, ideally < $200 (I don't think he's gonna shell out for Samurai 510s or Iron Heart 634s)? N&F straight guys seem like an obvious choice, but I feel like the options above are all a little nicer. United Stock Dry Goods doesn't make anything with a wider leg opening, right?

RGT Stantons are still relatively slim.  I have 3sixteen SL's and RGT Stantons and the Stantons are a fair amount slimmer all over.  I'd prob knock them off your list.

 

How wide of a leg opening are you looking for?

post #20946 of 21424
He's probably looking for close to 9", although I'm trying to argue him down to 8.5" or so.
post #20947 of 21424

unless he's a bigger guy i think you can cross the 3sixteens and RGT off the list. i don't know much about the others listed.

 

3sixteen SL - size 30 leg approx. 7.5"

rgt slub stanton - size 29 - approx. 7.25"

Yeah, he's around a 34.

I'm interested to know about Acne Ace cash, but it seems that isnt really skinny either.  I'm kind of talking about this: mens-skinny-jeans_header.jpg

I broke down and tried on a pair of skinny jeans from Zara (I hate that place).  I know their quality is deplorable but wow did those fit great.  I went up from a 28" to a 29" in waist and they fit kind of like the black pair shown above.  Really liked them.

Imogene+willie has a cut called Hank that sounds like it would work. I just got a pair of Bartons and the denim is nice and they're well constructed. I tried the hank but it was too big for me.

My phone is being a bitch and I can't link them. The model on the site is sized down too far IMO but the measurements and sizing advise are there.

Good call on both of those. Many thanks.

Here's the Barton after 4 days. I sized down from 32 to 31. Per their advice a 30 would be "normal" and this is "looser" but I think that's a little too snug.

Ignore the shirt...

Nice fit on those. Agreed that the model looks terribad online. Sized down too far, worn too high on the waist. Bad news overall.

I'll be in Tokyo come March, and i've set aside a shopping session in the famous Isetan in shinjuku.


Can someone point me to a few brands to watch out for?

 

Given that im looking for a good pair of dark indigo jeans, and my budget is just below 250 USD.

 

Also, what kind of cut should i be going for, straight or tapered, especially given that i have huge chunky thighs, but my build is average/athletic. 

 

I'm interested in this question also. I'm heading over in April. As for brands to look out for i'd suggest Momotaro, Samurai, Sugar cane, Skull Jeans, Studio D'Artisan. I'm only familiar with Samurai and Momotaro, I haven't had a chance to try the other brands, but have seen them in person and they look quality.

 

I own 2 pair of Samurai, 710x and s003jp. the s003jp is the slimmest fit samurai offers, and I personally prefer these. I'm selling my 710's as I prefer the more slim fit of the s003jp. I know your budget is 250 USD but try get up to the 300 - 350 mark. The quality of Samurai and Momotaro are totally worth it.

 

As for your build I'd try the 710x they are a slim jean without going too slim. Should have plenty of room in the thigh. I sized true to size, could probably have gone down one for a more slim fit. For the Momotaro's probably try the 0705SP they are also a slimmer fit, but if you go true to size shouldn't be overly slim.

 

Just walk around and try on as many pairs as you can find, this is what i'm intending to do. There are so many great brands out there, and many more i've never heard of. So try many, and buy what you think fits you the best. I personally am going to be getting some Momotaro's when I head over, their denim is amazing! Have fun!
