    What is the slimmest fit jeans dior makes? I tried a pair of really slim ones and they literally fit skin tight, I have a pair of dior 19cms and some raf black coated skinnys and they looked baggy in comparison. They must have had like a 12cm leg opening. They were also substantially more then most dior jeans at about $700, either way I want them.

    17.5, 19, and 21 are the different Dior cuts. Each is the hem measurement for a tagged 32 and go up/down .5cm every 2 sizes. MiJ also affects the fit, it tends to be slimmer than the MiI stuff

    So what jeans are recommeneded in terms of quality/price ratio. not skinny , not baggy, just comfortably fitted (boot cut?) pair of jeans.
    Whodini posted this slightly above your post:
    For that price range, by the way, Uniqlo is your best bet. You won't begin to see a change in "quality" until you pass the $200 level.
    I haven't broken in every SF-approved denim brand, but from handling different denim I'd definitely agree with who. It's basically two-tiered: the "entry designer" denim (nicer Uniqlo, APC, 3six, Crate, N&F) and true designer denim (5EP, RRL, KMW, Spurr, Jean Shop etc).

    I should really know the answer to this question but I guess I need some help. I am looking for a pair of jeans that are straight fit, not tapered, with no arcruates on the back pockets and does not exceed $200.

    I am thinking the IH634, APC Rescue, Nudie Straight Sven cut(but don't want rescues or Nudies)
    I can't get used to tapered jeans with work boots and I just got a pair of Thorogoods. I know it works on some people but I am not feeling it yet. Thanks.

    Funny that you should mention the 3sixteens. I just picked up a pair yesterday hoping that they would fit the bill but they are pretty much the same as APC New Standards. Maybe I should try a larger size?

    Can anyone comment on the sizing of Corpus jeans or how much they'll stretch? I'm looking at the Rye Slim in khaki, just not sure what size to get.

    I just got a pair of Thorogood x Epaulet boots. My main pair right now are APC NS which are slim and taper. I think tapered jeans look kind of odd with chunky workboots. So I am going for something a bit more relaxed with a wider leg opening. I don't want baggy just more straight. Ironheart 634s would be ideal but I don't have the cash right now.

    APC Hipsters work for me with boots, though they're a little lowrise compared to my 634s.

    you really dont have many options under 200 if those 3sixteens aren't working out for you. the SL isn't a tapered leg, though, are you thinking about the ST series?

    I just checked to be sure. I definitely got the SL-100x and according to both my measurements and the measurements on Selfedge they do in fact taper slightly; about 1 inch. I really like the fit of the model on SE website. Maybe I sized down too much.
