    Please be as honest as you can. I'm in search of the perfect pair of jeans.

    Thanks!

    Not "perfect" but they work.

    Please elaborate! Is it the butt? Are they too big there?

    I don't like skinny looking jeans, and have big thighs.

    Thanks for your help man.

    the jeans fit fine but the back pocket stitching is ugly, your belt is ugly, your shirt is passable but what's with the messed up collar, and you seem like a total turd for posting a new thread just to ask if your jeans fit not to mention bumping it after only 8 hours of inactivity

    and your shoes have no laces?

    Yeah, really don't need a new thread. They fit fine, but I wouldn't say there's anything "perfect" about them. Entirely subjective, but I feel like it's harder to get a really nice fit with baggier jeans because they don't conform to your body with time, like slimmer jeans tend to.

    Any way of removing it without fucking them up?

    Agreed

    Yes, they're a little too tight, and it's not noticeable when I'm standing. I will take them to the store to stretch them a little.

    Thanks for your honest advice.

    Sorry about the new thread. I get no response in those "question/answers" threads.

    Can you please give me one example? Do you think the butt is too baggy? Are they long enough? I think the front part of the jeans fits nicely, but feel like the butt area is a bit too baby. Do you agree?

    Not a big fan of skinny jeans. Where I come from, it's frowned upon. Besides, I'm an old man. Skinny jeans, IM(humble)O is for younger people & artists.

    Thanks again guys, and if you could give me specific criticism I would appreciate it.

    It looks alright.
    But since they'll stretch (more in the waist, only a bit in the thighs), it looks like you could wear one size smaller for a more contoured fit.
    You also seem to still have some space in your thighs.
    I have a similar problem with a number of jeans, when the waist fits, the thighs are often quite tight. The other problem is that they're a bit too baggy.

    I took some better pics with the pants a little more high on the waist. What do you guys think? Still too baggy on the butt?

    alright old man i'm gonna be honest:

    the jeans are OK, but size down one size in the low straights if you can still button them. they should be tight but they will stretch out comfortably. I think you should be able to based on the fit pics but try it on and if it works then flip these on ebay - i'm sure you can do it easily. What size are they anyway?

    The back pocket stitching can be removed easily using a seam ripper. Do it at once coz the pockets are ugly as fuck, while the denim quality is good.

    Get rid of your ugly belt, try to work out so u can stay in good shape/health.

    avoid buying shoes that are too tight, its uncomfortable and ridiculous. The shortfall from perfection will haunt your dreams as time goes on.

    you keep asking about the butt, it does look kinda weird but I think it's cause the pockets look far apart, first thing I noticed.

    Go down one size or try a different fit or give up on RRL jeans all together.

    They are size 36x34. The guys at the RRL store hemmed them and now the inseam measures 31.5".

    When I first tried them on the measurements were as follows:

    Waist: 19"
    Thigh: 12.5"
    Front rise: 11"
    Back rise: 15.75"

    After wearing them a couple of days, these are the measurements:


    Waist: 19.25"
    Thigh: 13.25"
    Front rise: 11.5"
    Back rise: 16.5"

    Amazing how much these stretch!

    I called RL and asked for the measurements of the 34x34, and they said:

    Thigh: 10.5"
    Front rise: 11"
    Back rise: 15"

    Obviously, the thigh measurement is too small for me, even if it stretches.

    They sell 35's on the website, but they're out of stock at the moment.

    Any more thoughts guys? I really appreciate all the comments.
