    I also stand with Sir Frank.

    My denim (not BJ) get that weird bunchiness in the crotch too. I've always thought it was because the rise isn't a good fit for me. I'm going to try a looser pair with a higher rise next and see what happens. Maybe BJ regular straight.

    Yeah, the problem is, with a higher rise comes different issues. Jeans are tough.

    Really though, the BJs are great. I am really excited about putting some wear into them.

    They are not meant to be worn higher, they are meant to be worn with a slightly dropped crotch. That is very likely the reason for the bunching. Just fwiw.

    Yeah, I am not concerned--I had them pulled down in that second picture. The more I look at the picture though, I really like the look of the slim tapered. Kind of surprised TBH.

    I wanted to pop back in and say that the Valstar Parka is perfect. I snapped up a navy one from last year that was on b&s and my only somewhat negative thought was that the shortness made it seem a little more sporty as opposed to an all-occasion coat. This year's model addresses that perfectly.

    I'm reservedly looking forward to see what you can possibly do to entice me to get another next year...

    This may be a silly question, but I picked up the LBM basketweave coat from the Dapper Monday sale, and I'm wondering if I should keep the little boutonniere decoration on it or not?
