I usually wear Klaxon Howl denim which has a 12" rise so suddenly putting on something with a 9.5" rise feels so weird.

High rise jeans are suspect patch[1].gif Just don't try to tuck a shirt into them and you won't be disappointed. RRL makes some seriously nice jeans for what it's worth. I find their shirts to be cheap and not even close to justify the retail cost, but the jeans are nice. If they fit, you really should keep them and try branching out in your denim.

I guess for the price I paid I cant go wrong keeping them.

Sorry if I was unclear. I meant don't try tucking into the RRLs. Low rise are no tuck for sure, looks bad 98% of the time.

Yea thats why I wear jeans with a higher rise most of the time since I tuck my shirts in quite often. These ones are definitely a no tuck kind of pants but they are quite comfortable.

Easy way to find out: Buy a ticket to anywhere on American Airlines this week. Board the plane. Drinks optional. Sit back. Read the airline's complimentary magazine cover to cover. Have the peanuts and a club soda. Contemplate your newfound insights. You have the answer you seek. Zen.

I've got 2 pair of RRL selvedge and they're my favorite jeans ever. You can get them under $100 on eBay if you're vigilant and lucky

I saw it at Salvation Army. I thought you guys would get a kick out of it.

Cross post. Most of what I'm wearing was heavily discounted rather than thrifted.

Nothing terribly exciting today...

collar on the sweater seams a little high in the pic, but I like the casual fit
