    you could try pbj as they're pretty tight in the thighs, but stretch out eventually. i also hear bootcut ola is pretty tight in thighs too

    find a pair that fits your thighs well and measure from the crotch inseam (whatever that joint seam is called, sorry for my lack of sartorial knowledge) to the outseam in which the tape is perpendicular to the outseam and you can compare that measurement to other jeans that are from styleforum's affiliates. though don't expect the thighs to not stretch unless you plan on keeping your legs straight forever

    now my turn

    does anyone have any experience with sda's d-1336?
    and what's the difference between their 2xx denim and their 3xx denim?

    So I live in Chicago and was unfortunately caught in kind of a snowstorm while I was walking outside in my ~2 week old New Cures. I don't seem to have lost much indigo, but the denim doesn't feel quite as rigid as it did before it got snow on.

    I wasn't planning on starching, but after this, I think I might. First of all, is having denim (somewhat) heavily snowed/rained upon bad for fading? Also, what kind of starch do you recommend using? Just the regular spay-on starch from the grocery store? Finally, is it ok to only starch at the whiskers & honeycombs, or would that end up making the denim look weird?

    no sneakers, eh? when you say casual, I'm assuming you're also ruling out all dress shoes/boots? what about sneakers that aren't athletically inspired or "dress" shoes/boots with a generally informal vibe? check out common projects and apc for the sneakers or paul smith for the dress shoes.

    any tips on my previous question?

    wmmk,

    You'll be fine. Stop worrying about your jeans.

    I am looking for a jean that has a slim thigh with a more generous leg opening (by generous I mean more straight or slight boot then a taper). This seems to be the ideal fit for my strange body shape. I have a few pairs of slim jims that fit me very close to how I like them but unless I size down uncomfortably the thighs still end up baggy. Not to seem fixated on nudie but I noticed they have a new narrow boot fit which I would like to try on but almost seems a parody in the extreme of what I am looking for. Anyone have any ideas?
    I own a pair which I will recommend to you.. slimmer thigh.. very slight bootcut. Lovely.. [​IMG] http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...id=28&vmcchk=1 I got a size 31 in these.. and I am a 30 in Regular ralfs for some reference..

    Just trying to get some opinions ... left leg shows the jeans as they are, and I've folded the inseam by 2.5" on the right to show what the stacking would look like if I had the jeans hemmed by 2.5"... [​IMG] Which one looks better? Left (unhemmed) or right (shortened)?

    What are some denims that fit similar to the Ande Whall Cougar's that will tend to stay dark? Here's a size chart for the Cougar's since I know not many people here have them [​IMG]

    SKULL 5010XX 6x6 RAW
    are these supposed to shrink to the same measurements as one wash, or have they actually created two different cuts (Raw) and (one-wash)... cause I hot soaked these things for 2 hours, didn't shirnk too much

    I would suggest the nudie straight sven. Slim in the thigh and more generous leg opening.

    they are sanforized so they aren't supposed to shrink much. i've hear some guys say they can get 2 inches or so shrinkage from the inseam though

    Don't worry about it; I've walked through blizzards and worse all the time. They'd eventually get less rigid anyway.
