My WeirdGuys flare out too much below the knee. Is it possible to get a pair of jeans tapered below the knee to cut out some flare? Has anyone done this with N&F jeans?

Sure, but if you want to keep the selvedge edge you must ask your tailor to taper from the inseam only. Or if you don't care about the selvedge edge at the bottom, then you can tell them to taper evenly from the outseam and inseam. If you don't wear a cuff or roll then I'd taper from both sides.

I want an extremely breathable denim suited for hot weather. Lightweight is probably a good idea, but my focus is on breathability. I was thinking about the linen blends until I saw the painters.

Any suggestion between the two, or any alternatives? I wear a 29 in wg elephant 2, want to stay around the same shape with a major cut on the inseam.

I do care about the selvedge edge because I usually cuff my jeans. Is it more difficult for a tailor to taper from the inseam only?

you really find WG to flare too much?  care to post a fit pic?  do you have the right size?

 

i don't mean to offend, I'm just really surprised that you think they flare too much.  Curious what your ideal fit is.

These are the Naked And Famous Redcore Jeans. They fit like a socket.

The painter denim is the obvious choice for you. Its 5oz denim. My friends swear by them!

It can be done. I find it more even if you taper from both seams, but you had better ask a good tailor what they can do. What city are you in?
