    Jeans fit you good, but of course there's nothing wrong with having a pair of tapered jeans in your wardrobe. Since you have three pairs with the same cut, maybe have one of them tapered?

    I'm 5'7" so I know that feel, broham.

    I wouldn't really advise to go have your straights tapered__ personally, I don't mess around w/ the cut, cuz from experience, my jawns get fucked up every time I opt for alteration.

    Keep what u got, next time, just try out some midrise, slim-tapered__ not skinny![​IMG]

    I feel uncomfortable wearing low rise jeans so I got these Lee 101z's recently, sized down ~2 sizes. I'm quite happy with the fit. The leg is pretty short but I have another pair on it's way with a longer inseam (Lee Archives Japan 1952). The ones in the pic are Made in Turkey. I seem to be unable to stand straight, I guess that is due to my wonky physique.

    ..Just got my 101z 1952 Lee Archives Japan pair and the fit is quite different: the waist and the seat are a bit looser and the legs are a lot looser. These are definitely more "straight regular" while the Made in Turkey ones are more like "slim straight" or even "skinny straight".

    Edit: I just read that these Lee Archives Japan 101z's shrink a lot even though they are sanforized. I think I have some soaking to do get a slightly slimmer look.
