    Hey guys, every time I try on a paper of raw denim they look silly because I have pointy knees. If I'm standing still they look fine but then when I walk or sit they look like they are sitting at a right angle because they are stiff and only touching the end of my knees. Sounds like a silly issue but it's really annoying. Does anyone else have this issue?

    I got a pair of skinny Nom De Guerre's off here a year or so ago, in grey (not raw), and because they were more supple they looked great. They conformed to my legs is I moved so it didn't look weird.

    Here's my question: Is this an issue with the weight of material? Or is it something to do with how broken in the NDGs were? Thanks for your help and any advice will be appreciated.

    Best,
    pointy in portland

    Unless you plan on filing them down, I suggest that you embrace your pointy knees.

    If you don't want them to stick out (pun intended), wear pants or denim made with thicker material.

    Btw, can you post pic of said knees?
