    are there any other straight-leg/large cut jeans that folks would recommend? I ordered a pair of 36 APC anglaise jeans online 3 months ago, but they were sold out and still have not restocked. any other jeans you would recommend? looking for a nice unwashed solid selvege pair that I can break in from start to finish.

    I'm 6'4, 210. usually I sport a '38 for added leg and ass room.

    gracias.

    Get a pair of Corpus Fine jeans, a full size up from what you are used to. They tend to size small at the waist, although they stretch out significantly. Stevenalan.com carries them. So does Stel's. I think Stel's carries larger sizes, and I can ask them to do measurements and have them shipped to you if you need.

    There's also the Rescue which replaced the Anglaise, if Corpus isn't in your budget.

    Actually, given your height, the Rescue might be a better bet. The Corpus "long" has an inseam about 34", probably too short for you. The Rescue inseam is a 35", at least.

    this will probably be the last comment I make before labelled pariah but...

    what if I like my jeans baggy? <onset of shame> my favorite cut in jeans and trousers is the superwide straight down leg, which I believe is sometimes called 'drainpipe' leg. is that correct? I bought a pair of WE jeans that were cut perfectly, but are far from selvedge.

    The G-Star Low loose would probably work for you. Not my favorite brand by far; but the cut would probably work for you, and some of the washes are decent. Also try the Diesel Yokees.
