    $760, and still probably the best price/value around.

    ^overpriced, but if fit is good, it's black and grey straight leg denim with nothing obnoxious on them nor in a bootcut. Can't really go wrong....

    sorry but a sloppy, wide straight leg denim is certainly worse than a well-cut bootcut denim.

    IDK about the black, but the grey said a hem of 8.25". Depending on his build, a tapered pant leg may not look good on him. Those definitely wouldn't fit into a 'sloppy, wide straight leg' in my opinion. There's tons of Japanese denim companies that make a straight leg that's looser and with a larger hem. It's not 'sloppy' it just looks better on some bigger guys paired with boots.


    If guy isn't more of an athletic/big guy, then yeah, I definitely agree and a much more tailored pant would be better.

    I am muscular but have a skinny frame. Only about 5'10" 160lbs. My thighs and butt are very muscular though, and I was told because of that straight leg is my best bet.

    The grey ones have a slight wash but they are fairly plain. The black ones are waxed. I thought they looked nice.... If you guys recommend a different brand or pair I should get please feel free to tell me. I'll take a pic with both on.

    Straight leg can still be tapered though. I'm a muscular guy as well and my pair of raw denim is about 12.25" in the thigh, but tapers down to about 7.75" at the hem. If you like them and they fit you well (legs, ass, waist) then keep them. I know I had a really hard time finding a pair to fit me in those areas. You can always tailor from the knee down to your liking.

    Unless you live in the boonies, your best bet is to just go out and try on a bunch of jeans...jeans are hard to order online until you have some comparison info. It took me about 6 months of buying maybe 5 pairs of jeans before I discovered that RRL slim fits are the golden fit for me. Go to Nordstrom Rack, Barneys Outlet, COOP and whatever you else you have around. Your other option is to just suck it up and buy like 8 pairs of diff jeans online from places with good return policy.

    Potentially super-creepy moment: You weren't at a wedding at the Cornell Plantations on Sunday, were you?
