If the front waistband of your pants droops downward (so that the waistband is kind of curved instead of straight across), does that mean you need a smaller waist size?

Hey, guys. Just a quick question.

This is how my suit pants fall. Do these need a hem/taper?

Thanks!

Around here we subscribe to the "if you can't say anything nice..." policy.

I really don't ever put them away for good. I do not subscribe to or understand rules about retiring colors because of the season. While I understand putting away different fabrics (i.e. I won't wear a linen or fresco suit in the dead of winter), putting away colors because they are not "season appropriate" seems dumb to me.

I wore my Reds last night actually, with coffee-colored suede tassels, a pale blue pencil strip button-up and a brown v neck sweater. The looks was completely acceptable and garnered many comments. Then again, my circle of friends is definitely the preppy-at-all-times group.

Yes, they are far too long.

I've done the raw hardcore Japanese denim thing for a few years and I'm over it. I'm looking for jeans that are more MC casual and less workwear. This almost entirely comes down to fit. Can anyone recommend a straight or tapered leg fit?

Tailor around Durham/RTP. I need one!

Leather dye. It's specific for this application. Google is your friend.

Does PRL run small? For as long as I can remember I was a 38 suit size, but I was just at a Ralph Lauren store, and the sales rep and instore manager all said I was a 40R after the 38R PRL was a bit too small for me. Thanks!

What's your budget?

First I would say APC new standard and then just wash them.

cheap end - levis 501 or gap straight. Both are nearly identical in measurements, with the gap straight having a lower rise. Closer to the APCs.

Heritage makers: Levis, 501 or 514. Lee Regular. Wrangler 13 MWZ (cowboy cut), or the 938 MWZ, which is a slimmer version. All should be available in some form of raw, Lee and Wrangler are Sanforized. Levis aren't.
