Get the 34 and have the waist and/or seat taken in. It's an easy operation. I've got big legs as well and the best solution I've found is sizing up and having it taken in.

Since taking in pants at the waist by no more than 2 inches is usually relatively easy to accomplish without major problems, my guess would be to start with the size 34, and reduce it down to size as needed.

hmmm ok thanks for the help guys! ill probably go with the 34 then. Although right now Im 170 and i want to lose 10-15 more pounds, how do you think that will affect my lower half? I run about 30 miles a week for weight loss.

Around how much does it cost to undo cuffs from a trouser? I just got a trouser hemmed and cuffed and I'm not sure if I like cuffs. I don't think they will undo the cuffs free of charge, right? If it costs too much I might just stick with cuffs.

Also to consider, if I undo the cuffs they will need to change the hem to more of a slant finish?
post #18231 of 33013

Generally it's a few dollars more than getting it hemmed in the first place...which shouldn't have cost very much.

 

As far as the slant...I think that requires a bit more expertise, so probably more money.

Hard to say without knowing your fat distribution and genetics. If you tend to store fat in your lower body, you could drop another couple inches. Could be hips, thighs, waist, wherever you tend to hold fat. Some guys get the gut and losing weight doesn't affect their pant size much (if they're wearing lower rise pants anyway).

Going to sell one of them, just not sure which to keep.

I would always choose an Alden over an AE.

Anyone in NY can repair this small hole left sleeve? My pants need to be rehemmed (it's too long) so there will be extra fabric to reweave the jacket:

I'm looking for a jacket very similar to this. Anyone have any leads?

So I'm looking for a car coat or a topcoat. My only long jacket is a trench and I'd like to have something to wear out at night to dinner and to work on on cold, dry days. I can't really decide if either of the following would be versatile for both. (Like would either of them look stupid at night?) I tend to wear a lot of charcoal trousers and my suits are generally charcoal.

Why would you think that?

Personally I'd like the first better but neither is going to look stupid

Light colored coat at night- I would think it would stick out too much. But I get a bit neurotic about crap like that so it's good to be told that it works fine. Thanks!

this is a long shot...

found this tie in a photo here http://ruffledblog.com/galleries/bohemian-artist-wedding-ideas/?nggpage=4&pid=77747

trying to find it or something similar. Yibei has similar design but they're.. just not as nice.

 

thanks
