    Are these pants too tight/slim? A few pics.

    A little bit of pocket flare, but just a little. The left pocket (right on the picture) is worse. It looks like it needs to be pressed. Still an indicator they might be too tight.[​IMG]
    I think it's a nice profile. I'm not sure whether that's the back pocket bunching up or the shirt.

    Sorry for the bad lighting. I'm not at home.

    Not too slim.

    I would advise having them shortened though. [​IMG]

    I'd try pressing them and then trying them on again. It does look like they may be a bit too snug in the hip though. You REALLY need to get the length of those pants shortened.

    I'm sure he knows they're too long, and is just trying to decide whether or not to return them before having them tailored. Notice they also still have tags.

    A bit high waisted, but hopefully I can pull it off despite being young. I think they'll look better with a belt.

    After years of dressing like a cretin, I am finally searching out clothes that actually fit me so the input is certainly appreciated.

    I am indeed aware that they are unhemmed. arc got it right, just trying to decide whether to keep them.

    The look a touch snug around the crouch but as long as they feel comfortable to you when standing and sitting i'd say there a fine fit.

    They are probably a touch snug in the seat which can cause that pocket opening. Its not terribly noticeable, though in an ideal world your pockets would sit flat.

    The Pants look fine in the front and side, but the backside picture looks too tight. Maybe it is because you are twisting to take the picture but it looks like it is riding up like a thong.

    I think the pants is too slim if it is like that even when you stand normally.

    Thanks for the input. I'll make sure to check for that.

    I agree with JamesX that front side is ok, but in the limit on the backside, but still nice looking pants.

    I wonder if getting the waist let out 1/2"-3/4" might let me wear them an inch lower and thus correct a lot of the issues raised in this thread. Thoughts?
