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 :(

Aside from fit, are you aware of what 'raw' and 'selvege' are?

I have been searching and searching and im struggling to find jeans that I want so im hoping maybe someone on here could point me in the direction of some brands to check out.


I want some tapered, selvedge jeans that have a mid/dirty wash, with an inseam of 35, but 34 could be an option.


I can find a few which are a light wash but that isn't what I want right now. im looking for something similar in wash to the below pair on the left


if anyone could help I would be forever in your debt

Ok, this has been bugging me for a while. Nobody says pant, trouser, Pajama, or boxer so why say jean?

Wore N&F for a few years. Still think they are great jeans but less attracted to them due to how colorful they are. 


Right now just looking for a really basic, high-quality raw denim dark indigo brand.

Bought APC New Standard in washed black. Like the fit a lot, but would like jeans to be more deep rich black (like Acne "stay cash"). What jeans would anyone recommend with similar fit as APC new standard but in deep black color?

Looking for a lighter washed, summer denim (nothing above 14 oz) in straight (but still tapered) fit. I'm 6', 170lbs, size 31 waist.

Currently have Rogue Territory SK (Indigo) and Stanton (Black), both size 29. Love both pairs, but want something lighter and washed for summer and with a more relaxed fit. Here's the SK''s:

Tried Geller's 5 year wash in a slim straight fit, but fit wasn't quite right and the wash was too close to acid/stonewash. See below.

I've looked at John Elliott, but their sizing is weird. Don't like any of Ervell's washes this season. Never had good luck with Acne/Nudie/etc.

Other suggestions?

Hello,  I'm new to the denim world.  But I have a hard time finding jeans and spent hundreds of dollar trying to find the right pair and still came up short.  


I would like to find a nice tapered denim, with  room in the thighs and pretty tight around my calves .  I'm 6'2 and 220 pounds,  I have massive legs,  I train as a weightlifter.


I'm desperate !!!!

Hey guys, I have been struggling to find the right pairs of jeans and would really appreciate some pointers or direction.


First pair of jeans:

I'm looking for a black denim, one that is not raw (trying to avoid as much fading/dye transfer as possible) but is selvedge, slim with a slightly tapered leg, mid/normal raise, and fits a 28 inch waist after the break-in period - if it has one.


Second pair of jeans:

The second pair is similar to the first - as far as fit goes. The main difference is that as far as color goes, I'm looking for something very dark but still a blue denim. Need it to be selvedge. I'm a bit more flexible in regards to whether raw or washed ( although I prefer something that is not going to transfer much dye). Must be mid/normal rise and fit a 28 inch waist after the break-in period - if it has one. 


Hopefully someone can shed some light on this matter...

How do you get a more lighter stonewashed look out of your jeans?  I have a few pairs of raw jeans and i am wanting a more lighter pair out of one of them.

The size 28 waist is about an inch too big according to the flat measurements.

Hey guys, I purchased a pair of Pure Blue Japan XX-18oz-015 while I was in Japan. Just wanted some thoughts on the fit, I have been thinking I should hem then as they are a bit long. Should I keep the stacks? Or hem them up so they look a little neater? Thanks for your thoughts guys!


post #20985 of 21470

Yes, they are too long. You would look nicer if you hemmed them.
