My 15 yo son loves the way I dress, especially my EG stuff. I've already handed over a few Japanese cut shirts from momotaro that are tight in the chest. I've also mostly persuaded him that Edwin's EU brand and Carhartt WIP are good vfm until he starts earning a living.

We disagree about streetwear hoodies, t shirts and sneakers, needless to say.

He's more than come around on music, too. He's a pretty serious guitarist and can lay down some SRV licks as well as John Prine and even some Wes Montgomery. No prefab pop/rap at all...
My kid is 17 and I've been hands-off with him about clothes and music, but I wonder how he will figure out how to dress later in life given that (at least where I live) they all just wear workout clothes. In contrast, we were all trying to look like mods from Quadrophenia when I was 13.

God damn. You f*ckers have got me itching for flared denim all of a sudden. :fu:
Not very hard considering Kapital seems to have a bunch. I'd love to try their "bootcut" model myself.

The rat flare ones? Yeah, they seem nice alright.
I dunno they apparently have a cut called "bootcut" (written on the tag) which sounds promising but I've only found the items of groiled so I dunno, going to a large store in Tokyo or whatever would definitely solve my problem.

Sorry if this has been asked before but Patagonia baggies: size up, down or TTS? I’ve read anything from “fits huge” to “best size up”. Thanks!

So..... I tried on a pair of vintage Levi's 517s today. At first I really liked what I saw in the mirror. Then my gf told me I was way too hippy (not the cool kind of hippie, but rather that I apparently have too much hips, hips that of course don't lie) for flared denim and that it made me look like a woman. After looking hard in the mirror for a while and contemplating the big questions of jawnz and life, I agreed.

Itch scratched.

All I wanted was to look as cool as @Chaconne... :violin:

Thanks, man! Maybe one day try a different day use cut? No expert but maybe if the sit lower on the hips or have a bit more room in the thigh it might alleviate the problem?

I find that with flared denim, especially vintage cuts, the flare is too abrupt and look dated. I like when it is more gradual rather than super tight then a huge bell below the knees.

I've seen both of you guys. You are some straight hips having mofos.

Get relatively large straight legs instead?

Well I can not deny that. Both my hips and my booty are straight and flat. I sometimes wish I had more junk in the trunk at least.
