My G-Star Jeans? Too big? Or fine?

Hey guys, I just recently got new jeans.

G-Star Raw Jeans. Straight Fit. Size 30W. 32L.

I was wondering what you guys think of them? I'm worried they look a bit to big on me.
I'm a skinny asian guy.


I don't think these jeans come in a smaller size... Should I return them? I paid about $240 canadian for them.


I know, I know, my curtains look nasty.. I'm getting them replaced soon. These are just temporary.

Give me some feedback! Please and thanks! It would greatly appreciated.

They look fine to me though I would like them shorter.

Check out our Streetwear forum (next one down).

I bought the exact same jeans this past weekend in a size 33 x 32. But I weight 180lbs. These jeans are meant to be rather fitting, if not tight, because as the raw denim experts over at the Streetwear will tell you, the jeans will stretch with wear. They do look a bit long too.

If you have access to a G-Star store, I believe they carry raw denim in a slim fit. You should try those, if you can't get a hold of a smaller than 30 size. The slims were too tight for me, and the relaxed fit look fine if I were 8-10 years younger. Since you're smaller and skinnier than I am, you should go for a smaller size or cut, if you don't want the baggy look. But if you like the baggy look, then they're fine. Although, I think the point of buying raw denim is that the jeans will mold and contour to your body such that the creasing effects will naturally occur from that process. If they are too baggy, then I wouldn't think (although I'm not expert) that you won't get the natural wear effect that is expected with raw denim.

That's raw denim? The color does not look uniform.

You might be right z. I just quickly assumed they were raw since he said G Star Raw Denim, but I should know that's how G Star refers to all of their jeans, not necessarily that this particular pair is raw denim. My bad.

In that case, Excellence, they look okay, not great. I still think you can get a better fit with slim fitting jeans or a smaller size. If you want to be sexy, get jeans that fit a little better.

They probably could look okay, if that's how you like your jeans to fit (looseness-wise). You should try cuffing them though because they are definitely too long. Take up about 2-3" of the length and they will probably look all right.

A bit too wide at the leg opening, unless you get them hemmed, maybe.

$240 for G-star, though? Where are you from? If Vancouver, I'd return the G-stars and go to Dutil and check out what they have. Or go to your local Holt Renfrew, Nudies should be around that price as well. For $240 you got a BUNCH of better options.

I bought these at a store called Zoam, in Toronto.
The fit I have are Radar Straight jeans.
The store I bought them from only has in store credit.

They carry only a few brands. I might check out Holt Renfrew later on after I get my G-Stars returned or get a new style/size.

While I agree that you could probably do better at that price point, I think they would be fine if you hemmed them a bit...

Speaking of the OP photo, I'd agree that they are in need of some hemming and look rather normal/underwhelming for that price. Speaking of the non-OP photo, while I don't think I could pull it off I do like the look of the anti-fit. Not $200+ like, but like.
