Is it supposed to feel this way? or will it stretch out.
I'm abit worried that i might get a split/rip on the out seam if i wear it too much. Just wanted to know if this is normal.
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!
Thanks for the reply!
Are you prices you quoted the retail prices in Japan?
Also, i sent you a PM.
Hey, all good! Hopefully I was able to help. I'm not sure on the retail prices in Japan sorry! I will have to discover those when i'm over there. But i'd be expecting them to be in mid $300 mark still. Retail prices here in Australia for Japanese denim is pretty crazy, looking at about $400 for a pair of Samurai's down here.
Hey guys, I'm pretty new to the whole "fashion" and "style" scene, but I've been wanting to dress nicer and thought this would be a good place for some information.
I have a question about jeans; basically all my life I have just been buying the "straight leg" cut jeans; which style of jeans do you guys prefer? Been reading a lot of fashion articles and looks like "skinny" and "slim" cuts are the most fashionable, is that what y'all recommend?
I always wore straight because they felt comfortable, but I am due for some new jeans and want my next pair to be in the right direction. Slim and skinny looks like they would be really tight (especially around the crotch area)...between slim and skinny is either one more comfortable as far as giving you some wiggle room? Which one is less tight?
I'm excited to get a pair of jeans with a different style because I notice with my straight leg jeans, I always had to get a tailor to sew the bottoms because they would drag under my shoes...Also hoping with slim/skinny jeans they will sit right on top of my shoes so I can show of my shoes as well.
So which cut do you guys recommend? Slim, skinny, or what? Another reason I have been getting straight is because I'm pretty short and feel like skinny jeans would look off on me, and always figured that dark wash straight jeans were "classic".
I gotta say though that my latest pair of dark wash straight jeans, hemmed at the bottom by a tailor have been pretty great. they have a nice shape and fit to them, and when I put on my shoes I pull the tongue up over the bottom of the jean and it seems to fall nicely and have a good fit. Is that good or a tacky thing to do?
I would also like to know because when you google "skinny jeans men" you get a bunch of memes and pics making fun of guys in skinny jeans and calling it gay :S
I also feel like they give a cleaner look especially if you want to show off your shoes, so would slim be a good middle ground? The more I look at my straight leg jeans now the more I feel like they look messy :(
IMO Slight Striaght is the best cut becuase it gives the perfect balance between fashion and comfort. And its the best looking overall imo, I like how its comfortable through the thigh but then gets narrow towards the feet so your sneakers don't get hidden. The top half of the jeans are pretty miuch like regular straight jeans, so your crotch and etc won't feel tight, they are just as comfortable as regular jeans, and you get the nice aesthetics below the knees of a slim jean.
Jeans and sneakers are both important and if you get them right you will be looking amazing.
