Excuse our wasted expressions.


I love the colors you choose.

I know how you guys feel about dressing for women, but I asked a female friend and she said they're too short.

I think I'll try to get rid of them. They were only 50 bucks here on SF though; learned what I need to buy next.

You would think they would be more comfortable if you wore them at your true waist unless they were overly tight and you couldn't get them over your hips, I suppose. You're probably right to get jeans that have longer inseam because it will be more versatile. What size do you wear? There's probably some deals to be had.

I can fit comfortably into a 33 into NEW jeans; of course they always stretch though (I've also got about 20 pounds of fat to lose). Those were 31 in length so I'm thinking a 33 would probably work best? I'd like my next pair of raw denim to be a nicer pair-- like APC or KMW or something; so I want to nail this down perfect this time. And I think I may be confused about what my "true waist" is. Those are as low as I can go without having my pubes show. I can't go higher obviously either.

Your true waist is 2" above your navel, or where you might wear dress pants with a belt. Most people here wear jeans at their hips, basically where they would sit if you'd wear them w/o a belt. You might want to get new standards or rescues, as I think that would be the easiest jean for you to wear, it's a pretty flattering cut on essentially everyone. Get Rescues in 30 or NS in 31. The inseam on them will be like 35" so you can either let them stack or have them hemmed.

Don't buy new denim yet then. Lose the 20 lbs and then buy them, both as a reward for losing the pounds and so that you don't have jeans that are stretched two sizes too big for you. Chances are though, you'll only go down one waist size. I would get a pair of Nudie RRDS to start out. They're a regular fit and all you have to do is size down one from your regular jean size.

You look like a fairly slim guy, though your shirt isn't exactly skin tight so if you have a gut we can't see it. I would check out your BMI to see if you even need to lose weight...

I do have a gut. I hide my fat well due to my body type/height. Most of it is in my thighs and stomach.

Thanks for the tips; I'll try to lose the weight first, but I'm impatient.

I'd recommend going with a pair of APC NS as well. I am a 33 inch true waist and my pair of 31 New Standards fits well. They were pretty tight when I first bought them, but after 5 months of wearing and a cold and hot soak they fit well. And finally, at $140 you really can't go wrong. Read up on the forums and I'm sure you'll find a pair - theres a thread on here regarding the 10 best jeans that you may want to read (The New Standards are on the list BTW).

I don't necessarily think you need to lose the weight before you get new jeans because if you get NS sized down two and go down one waist size, it will be a nice slouchy jean and you can always get more denim later. You're kidding yourself if you think you'll stop at buying one pair of jeans in any case. NS are pretty versatile jeans and can be used for any occasion anyways.

Glad you said that, because don't think I could wait a couple of months to start upgrading my wardrobe.

I'm sorry that but looks absolutely dreadful on you. The combination looks like a Jackson Pollock painting when you're wearing it all together, and the fit is atrocious. You, sir, are a sartorial abortion.

Just nice comfy T-shirt and jeans while doing some work around the house tonight. BR Uniqlo AE This is the Trogolodyte Homonculus shirt I got today. It needs to be ironed but its very comfortable and I like the shade.

What is the grammatical reasoning behind using "pant" instead of "pants?"

thanks again for the comments on the rb6s. here they are again today. i wore another penguin shirt, but it got splashed while cooking. so, i'm just in a tee, which some may favor over my polo(s).

Conservation of electrons. But by discussing it we have now thrown that completely out the window.
