I'm not a fan of thigh flare, they look ok, nothing special.

they look really baggy around your butt. maybe you need to size down? are they loose on your waist?

Yup. Wear shoes first of all.

Thigh flares are brutal.

You need to size down or find a new brand/cut. That fit is not good from what I can see.

It might be helpful to us if you posted what brand/cut your jeans are and what the tagged size is. Otherwise, I'd agree that they are too big and that you should have sized down at least one size.

i think it help if you said what brand and cut it is. so maybe we get a idea of what the inteded fit is supposed to be. i imagine those are dry at least and brand new right? dry denim changes form after wearing who knows they might look better after a few wears or maybe it was a brand that calls for a soak.

anyhow i don't think the fit looks bad a lot of people here are more towards really slim jeans. i don't have a problem with that i own a lot of slim pairs but i know its also good to have a couple of true straight legs too.

lets just hope it wasn't a brand that stretches out a lot.

Next time just quote your old post in the denim thread... this doesn't deserve its own thread.

Pockets are too big and look like they're too big all around (problem with sizing). Too much hip flare (problem with the cut) and he might want to use heavier denim because it looks really flimsy.

More of a taper from the knee down would be more flattering, but that's just my preference.
