    Well, I've been wearing them the past couple of days now. I'm pretty comfortable in them and think I'm satisfied with them. Today, just hanging round the house and running a few errands:

    Not up to SW&D standards, I'm sure, but I think a lot better looking than my previous jeans and I'm happy with where I've got.

    Thanks for all the help guys. You've really helped! [​IMG]


    Characteristic late, necessary commentary:
    They'd look better, maybe up to Streetwear standards, if more tapered (lower leg) and not cuffed. Also, the cuffs probably don't go with the tee shirt (or dreaded visible undershirt) and cardigan combination.

    They're very patient with us too. I think it's all a ploy to get us to take our pants off, but still... [​IMG]

    I should rename the thread S&W Critiques of MC Denim. It has indeed become more helpful than I'd imagined.

    Tapered isn't for everyone and I think cuffed can look great with a boot. There are plenty of great examples of both in SW&D. PS. Just a small warning about the cuff, in case you want to also want to wear them uncuffed, the fold from the cuff can become worn in and form a permanent line fairly quickly.

    Are you printing out SF and then smoking it?

    Cuffed straight leg denim can be the bomb:

    Plus, if you mix in any Thom Browne with denim, cuff those suckers.

    Just my luck to follow Vox...

    (Cross post from WAYWN) I picked these up over the weekend from the outlets--I like the fit. What do you think? They're Gap, Low-Rise Straight Fit.

    Hah! Now, I follow you.

    I think those look really good...maybe just a tad long.

    What would be a good length for non-stackers? I usually have mine done so that the rear is about the top of the heel of my shoes when I am standing. What do you think?

    Generally, I think that works, L. I feel that a length that looks good varies a bit with how narrow the legs are.

    Agreed. The more narrow ones have to be a tad shorter to avoid too much break.
