Hoping for a little help on this project. Wanting to acquire a pair of these, perhaps tomorrow. I also want to try out APCs but I happened to be near a Holt Renfrew this afternoon after I skipped out on work early. Tried on 32/34 Slim Jims. I normally wear a 33 or 34 so I am happy with the 32, based on what I read, and will try on a 31 if I can find one, for fun. 32 was very tight and constricting but not painful when standing, and I could move around a fair bit, so I felt like I was on the right track. My main concern is the size of my quads. I have relatively large legs due to all the awesome exercises and extreme sporting activities I participate in. I do know that the jeans are unlikely to expand much in that area. So my question is more about how the jeans look on me. Would like opinions. And I recognize that it would have been better if I'd put my shoes back on, but they're just oxfords so I'm not sure how much it would have added. Questions, again: -Do they look good overall? -Do they look okay in the quad/thigh area? -Should I make a real effort to try on APCs before pulling the trigger? -Would I be happier with another, less extreme Nudie (such as Narrow Boot or Even Steven - I know I don't want Average Joe)?
