Hi all,

I am embarking in the quest for the perfect pair of jeans.
I am 5'11, athletic build, muscular and somehow shorter than average legs.

So I am having two problems here:

1. finding jeans that I can actually fit in, and
2. with a flattering fit, that elongates the figure.
I tried a few on and the 3Sixteen CT-100x seem to be the best fit so far.

In general however, what are the tips to make legs look thinner/longer with jeans?

Thanks all!

Hey, good question. To look thinner/longer, you'll need a reduce excess fabric all the way down the leg - so finding a jean that fits somewhat closely from seat to thigh to knee, etc will be important. Next you'll need to make sure your inseam length is dialed in, not too much break/excess length. And finally, I think a darker jean will help you look thinner/longer. If I can help further, let me know, happy to help.

U need slim-fit pants with either a medium or full break over low-profile shoes.
