Are you sure you're talking about denim with deeper front pockets?  I didn't notice RRL, LVC or APC having front pockets that were any deeper than Levi's.

@t2ohoh I have a 6+ and have never ran into any problems whatsoever. If you're wearing a jacket put it in jacket pocket. If you're wearing pants or shorts they will fit in front pockets, and if you're wearing jeans either hold it or put it in front pocket and deal with it. Or you can buy a man bag.

Obviously, if I'm wearing a jacket, that's where I put my 6 Plus, but it's already May.  Jacket weather is coming to an end for the season.  A bag isn't the answer.  I have one for my camera, but I like having my iPhone against my body so I can feel it vibrate when I get a call.  I'm just shocked that wanting deeper pockets than the girlie pockets they're putting in men's jeans these days seems like a difficult thing to find.  It's sad that the options seem to be either ugly baggy jeans or good looking jeans with tiny front pockets.  I have to assume there are some brands that use deeper pockets, which is why I asked.

 

The funny thing is, I was at Nordstrom today going through their denim to see if any had deeper pockets, and two different female sales assistants came over to ask if I needed help.  When I explained that I was checking the pockets to see if any were deep enough for my 6 Plus when I sit, both women started complaining about tiny pockets in women's jeans...  so, clearly I'm not the only one who wants deeper pockets.  I'm not talking about crazy deep.  I just want pockets maybe 2 or 3 inches deeper.  The current Gap Straight Fit jeans have pockets that are almost perfect (such a shame the washes are lame).  I just want the phone to fit deep enough to be able to sit down.

 

Surely, somebody makes stylish denim with pockets deep enough to hold an iPhone 6 Plus while sitting.  I've read that Levi's is considering making deeper pockets to accommodate today's larger smartphones.  So, who knows...  maybe next year or the year after we'll get them.

My pair of Pure Blue Japan XX-18oz-015 have the deepest pockets out of any pair of jeans I own. I have some Samurai and APC's. If you can find a pair of those to check the pocket, i'd recommend them.

A tailor may be able to make pockets deeper.

Can someone who is experienced with 3sixteen explain all their cuts?

I am looking for a pair that is mid rise looser in the thighs with a taper to the opening - kind of like a Naked and Famous Weird Guy but better....hahahah

the SL model is the slim straight and the ST models are the slim tapered. Honestly, measure your best fitting pair of denim and compare them to the fit guide on the Blue Owl Workshop site, this will give you a better idea as to which fit is best for you.

Question for those who have hemmed and tapered their selvedge. I have new Sanforized pair i want to experiment with by tapering a bit below the knee. I also want to try and wear without washing/soaking for a change- I usuallly always wash/soak even sanforized denim. But would like to see if wearing right out of the box affects fades etc.

So would you wear for a few weeks/months then wash/soak and proceed to hem and taper? or

Taper now and wear for a few months; wash and hem post wash to account for shrinkage?

Taper and chain stitch now and allow about an inch to account for any shrinkage later?

Theres probably no accepted practice but these are an experiment Thanks

I have no experience with tapering my jeans but when I bought my 3sixteen shadow selvedge from BOW I had them hemmed to my specificatations and figured in shrinkage. But, the 3sixteens are sanforized so I'm not expecting too much shrinkage, if at all

I have tried all types of jeans over the years. Just went back to a normal pair of 501's and couldn't be happier, plus they were in the sale. Wont be messing around with designer jeans any more me thinks.

Hi all,

I'm coming from the MC section. I'm upgrading my selection of jeans and request your help. I dress pretty conservatively in terms of fit - think Vox with a bit more waist suppression and more break(slight break with 1.75 cuffs). I wear my jeans like my dress trousers for the most part - 1-2" below my navel with a long-enough rise. I'm currently wearing Levi's 541's("athletic" fit) in 31/32x34 because I have large quads/hams and a prominent seat. I'm 6'1" and wear a 12D US.

 

I'm looking for nicer jeans that accommodate larger thighs and seat but with a 9" opening or so, but is not roomy in the calves. Do y'all have any recs? Basically a Levi's 541 Fit with a larger leg opening. I'm not into the skinny look. Something contoured like the below from JeffD as opposed to a straight fit(that's the only thing I can think of that has a 9" opening):

You'd probably be happiest with the ST cut. Take a pair of jeans you have which fit you as you'd like in the thighs. Measure them (using measuring guides at Self Edge, Blue Owl Workshop, or where ever else you are consider buying them) and find the size that fits you correctly in the thighs. Then check the other measurements to see if the waist, rise, and hem opening are to your liking.

Albam jeans have absurdly deep pockets

New DH denim from yoox arrived today. Should I keep it? I have no idea how Dior Denim is supposed to fit.

 

 

 

 

Secondly, it says Dior Japan on the label. Is this some inferior quality Japan-only line or a new tag? I have not seen this anywhere yet.

post #21015 of 21424
Yet another noob question. I just picked up a pair of Samurai 24oz LHT the fit snug around the waist (semi uncomfortable) this is pre soak I was worried if I soak them they will become too small and possibly impossible to wear. Just trying to make sure I don't waste my money and can exchange them.
