post #11281 of 11974
I don't want to keep sparking long discussions on my wears; especially in this thread. I want to look like braidkid and this guy, And lets leave it at that. I won't post my 'offensive' mall brand fits any more. Great life studies by the way, Will.

It's not a bad thing if you're learning from them. Keep posting your fits so we can see the evolution of your style.

True, the current clothes worn to accomplish that proportion lean in the A&F direction, but if he did drop the pre-fade and the multi-screened shirt, having some clean denim and a simple shirt, he may be boring to most, but he would satisfy the style gods here and maintain the slightly baggy jeans.

Most young men in the US wear their jeans larger than their true fit by 1-2 sizes, ostensibly to avoid looking gay, this is what I mean by the A&F look. Quoting the imitable LAGuy, wearing clothes that fit doesn't make you gay.

But it doesn't look like he's wearing jeans that are too big, the cut of them is just "relaxed bootcut" or something.

I know in one of his pictures he was wearing cole haan's, which is a downgrade from edmond's unless I'm mistaken.

Have a look at RM

It's somewhat difficult to tell in that picture because he's wearing them at his true waist with a faux tuck, but I think if he wore them at his true waist, they'd be falling off because they would be too big.

I think it's 10 years of defining my taste level, taking tentative note of others and being comfortable in my own skin. Some may say "10 years for that, a ratty tee and jeans". I prefer "Stealth Wealth". I have a good job; a great wife and a comfortable income, I now understand I have nothing to prove to anyone but myself. At the age of 22 living and working in Manhattan I thought I knew it all and presumed certain ways of dressing, behaving and socializing would add credence to my being. After 10 years of refining those traits I'm in a comfortable place. In 10 years I'll realize how wrong I am now.

They are too big in the waist, but what you see in the thigh is 100% thigh practically. I have very thick thighs so I have to buy a larger size. I'm still very confused about what raw denim fit I should be looking for. I just randomly ordered some cheap raw denim on SF that I thought would fit and I figure I'll go from there.

Some jeans that have a fair amount of room in the top block, but are still slim through the leg, include most 501 inspired jeans such as the 5EP Straight Down Zip or Low Down Boot, most Earnest Sewn jeans, including the Fulton, Rotton, and Hutch, APCs, such as New Standard and potentially the rescue although I might avoid that one because it is cut pretty full through the lower leg, and Nudies such as the Straight Sven or Regular Ralf. Also keep in mind that if you wore your jeans on your hips rather than at your true waist (i.e. slouched them lower) they would be more relaxed in the thigh because your thighs would be at a thicker part of the jean (if you know what I'm saying)

I think men are developing serious self-image problems like women in thinking that they are 1-2 sizes smaller than they actually are. They don't want to be a 34" waist so they'll squeeze into slim 32"s and likewise a size 50 suit jacket is "gigantic" and they MUST wear a 46-48.
It's not about the size on the tag...it's about having the approrpriate fit to your body type and having the clothes drape as they were made to.
A guy wearing size 28 jeans and a 46 jacket and a guy wearing size 34 jeans and a 52 jacket will stylistically both look the same if that is in fact their correct size/measurments. But, I gurantee that whichever has the prettier face is going to "look better" than the other.

I fully agree that there are vanity sizing issues, and I think it's ridiculous that some designers are doing the same thing as women's designers and making the measurements for each size bigger. I wear M in some designers and it is baggy (RL) and XXL in some and they are slim (Band of Outsiders) That said, I don't think most men outside of this forum and SuFu wear clothes that are too tight on a regular basis.

Something like this is far more indicative of normal wear:
