Why does Gap need to take a perfectly good pair of black skinny jeans and fuck them up: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do...d=1&pid=772246

Really guys? you would have had my money otherwise.

Tried the white wash straight. Fucking aweful, it had those ugly black seams and the extra low rise is uncomfortable as hell.

LOL yeah took me a sec too.

So annoyed. I just got a pair of the skinnys in today (28x32) and they are like an inch too big in the waist. I've been the same size since high school, but it seems like a 28 waist size in jeans just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Would be nice if I could find some jeans that fit for less than $200...

Levi's 514/511/510 cuts don't work for you?

Most of them don't come in my size and I'm specifically trying to find some dark jeans right now. I'm not even aiming for the skinny jean look, just trying to find some nicer looking jeans that fit me.

Wich Jean has a slimmer fit? The autentics or the straights?

Levi's run about an inch smaller in the waist than Gap jeans of the equivalent size. I don't know how the Gap Skinny cut compares to their others/to Levi's, but I'd be surprised if neither the 514 or 511 would work for you. Even though the waist is a little large, how do the Skinny jeans fit through the seat/thigh? http://www.amazon.com/Levis-Straight...7326792&sr=1-1 Tumbled Rigid available in 28x32. You could even go to the extreme and buy shrink-to-fits: http://www.amazon.com/Levis-Mens-Shr...7326916&sr=1-2 And these are just the Levi's options. I'm sure you'd be able to find solid alternatives for even less than $100.

The Straight fit is either a little slimmer, or identical with a lower rise. On me, the thighs of the Straight cut seem to fit tighter but that could be due to the rise.

The authentic fit actually has the narrower thighs but identical rise. The Gap website outlines the details of each fit. edit: Oops you're right. i was thinking of Std, not Straight. It goes Skinny, Straight, Boot, Authentic, Standard in order of general slimmitude.

They're also listed, from left to right, "Skinny" to "Loose": Skinny, Straight, Boot, Authentic, and were listed as such before there was a "Skinny" fit. In practice, I can fit more easily into size 29 Authentics than size 29 Straights. I own a pair of size 29 Straights and size 28 Standards, and while both are listed online as being "straight through the leg," the Straight has a slimmer thigh than the Standards, even at a size larger. Finally, the Authentic is described as the "perfect hybrid" between the Standard and Straight fits. You can also look at the fit pictures -- while I can't confirm that the same fit model is used for all of them, it simply looks like the Straight fit is slimmer. Also, doesn't it seem like the Authentic fit was altered with the new models (the one with the straight line stitching across the back pockets) to be a little more relaxed? I e-mailed Gap about whether the fit has changed since it was first introduced, and they told me: "Although we don't have specifics on any proportion changes, it would not be unusual if they aren't slightly different from their original introduction."

So I went to the Levi's store and bought a pair of shrink-to-fits. The waist size goes down fine, but they are just too baggy in the hips/thighs. I tried on the slim straights and it was the same story. I'm not looking for the jeans to be tight, I just have really small thighs and legs.

The Gap Skinny's fit fine in the legs, but the waist makes me worry. If the waist doesn't stretch I can probably get by with them with a belt and it not be obvious. I just wonder if I would be better off returning them and just getting something else.

Yeah, so it sounds like you've got a pretty slim build. Were you able to try the 511's? Even a size up they're way too tight for me, whereas size 29 514's are pretty much just right on my legs. I myself haven't even tried the 510's, because the 511's are skin tight and definitely not what I'm looking for. Edit: Because the Gap Skinny's have a larger waist on you, they probably won't stretch very much more if at all. But I'd try to find jeans that fit, as opposed to throwing on a belt.

i wouldn't give up on STFs quite yet. They will accommodate most, if not all bodies, no matter how oddly malformed your body is. Btw, those jeans are baggy initially but after a soak/wash they shrink 10%, which means your inseam and waist will shrink quite a bit. If you want a leaner fit, just make sure you go true to size for the waistband and go 2+ inches for the inseam.
