    did you size up or something?

    i sized down one and i have a bit of a tighter fit... the lower leg on mine seems more tapered (size 30)

    I bought true to size (34). They might look less tapered because they are hemmed to have minimal break.

    Here's a pic i took a few days ago of the AJs that shows a little better idea of the leg opening width... I think the fact that the denim is super rigid makes it look like they're not super tapered. They're definitely not as slim through the calf than my mics or RRLs but they're not bootcut by any means.

    If you like the feel of the jeans then it's fine... are they too tight?

    you know, the proportions are just wacky on this picture. your neck measures slightly bigger than your thigh on the screen. it looks like you photoshopped the whole thing together from cobbled body parts.

    After getting these hemmed, I really like them. I think the fit is great and the jeans are very comfortable and dressy even with the contrast stitching.

    Hehe, that's because of the camera angle, my neck is somewhat smaller than my thigh in reality (18" < 26") but not that much smaller in diameter I guess when you consider the fact that thighs are less circular.

    yeah, i know. but you still look like rob liefeld drew you. all you need is a metal breastplate and some big weapons.

    no the fit feels good. maybe the waist hasn't stretched out yet as much as I'd want
    but ive only worn them for 2 weeks

    have yours stretched out?

    Not too much because they weren't really tight in the first place. I haven't worn them that much really maybe 4 times total, but I doubt they'll stretch too much.

    exactly what i think but alot more comfortable imo, less low rise and more room in thighs makes me happy. since it is basically a regular ralph top with a slim jim bottom.

    You look like you're standing in front of a circus mirror even though you are not.

    Drizzt, have your average joes shrunk at all? I'm planning on purchasing a pair of black selvage average joes, but am afraid of them shrinking too much. My RRDS, which I bought at 31/32 seem to have shrunk about an inch. 31/32 is a perfect length for me, and any shorter would be bad. [​IMG]
