Agree with 1950's. Probably perfect.

I sort of like the idea of a repro-cut but don't want something too anti-fit boxy. Does anyone have any good repro suggestions for something slimmish, sort of in between a 501 cut , and the slim tapered look of my KMW's?

I had sort of thought LVC 505's maybe, or Leepros. I really am just not sure. I realize a person with 3500 posts shouldn't be asking such simple silly questions but hell what do you do.

Have you looked at Somet's? Maybe 003's or 008's.

Could anyone tell me, out of curiousity, how the Levis 501 fit compares to Gap's Standard fit jeans, in terms of rise, looseness, etc? Also, are there are Levis that fit like the 527s but without the bootcut? I used to wear nothing but 527s, but I grew sick of the bootcut leg opening a year ago or so.

^So that's me in NS and NC, respectively. The NS are 28, the NC are 30, but I wore them with a belt so they only stretched to the size a 29 normally would. You guys think SExSC06's would be a good fit, maybe looser than the NC but a little slimmer than the NS? What size would I want for that type of fit? All this unsanforized bidnis is confusing.

Do you think they're worth about $100? I'm looking at a white pair... PS - Are white jeans just a bad idea? like faddy, or just for summer. PPS - should white denim be looser then normal indigo?
Also - What do the RB15's fit like?? how would a 28 in rb15 compare to the above slim jim or new cure in a 28? Thanks

Yup!

i don't think he'll be into lowrises__ even mid-lows for that matter. for his vitals, he'd need repro or near-repro cuts with front rises no lower than 11", blank pockets [or toned down trims&arcs]. i suggest :: Sugarcane models are always a staple :: Warehouse DDs :: Fullcount has a WWII with a heavier 15.7oz Zimbabwe :: Samurai 510 cuts :: PBJ 003 for an adventure in texture__ man, you only live once!

sort of, it seemed like Somets were pretty close to my kmw's... but its just hard because on sites like context KMW's look way more tapered than what I feel they look like on me. I really just need a long weekend to travel/try 10-15 different brands styles on. I was supposed to go to Madisson WI a couple months back... maybe we could head up there again so I could hit up Context. I dunno.

I really wish that Superfuture wasn't so weird, so I could do a little more research there. Everytime I try to post the textbox dissappears. I don't know if I got neg-repped too much, my computer/browser sucks, superfuture sucks... or some combination of all 3 things.

I'm actually tempted to buy an ironheart and then forget about every other brands out there.

I would suggest Lvc 1947. Cant go wrong with them at any age imo.
post #4965 of 21424
I could give you a ton of suggestions if you were 46, but at 47, I just don't know.
