Who has a pair of these on this board ? Just wondering also what jeans you where with them. I find my lvc are to narrow at the cuff and make italias look like canoes since they are such a narrow trainer

Pretty much any jean. I find them really slim, so usually wear mine with my APC new standards, but I would wear them with 5EP bootcuts or Corpus Tals as well. As long as the opening on the jean is not too big, they'll look fine.

Do you not find they look really long and clownish with new standards ? What size feet do you have ?

I have size 11US feet. No, I don;t find them clownish. The shoes are slim. They have a low, narrow silhouette, they go with narrowing jeans. It might be my personal bias re. silhouettes, however. And who wants to have dainty looking feet?

I have a pair of b/w Italias made of kangaroo leather. I think they look a bit different from the ones currently on sale. I just love them, still I wear them infrequently to go easy on them. Just look at the soft leather's crinkles! (I know, the picture's a bit overexposed, but I hope it'll do.)
Btw: They're size 13 and I think I do look clownish wearing them with tighter pants.

Those black ones are ok but italias look much better with the gum sole imo
