    I wear pants from Helmut Lang, Costume National, Jil Sander, and YSL RG. None of them are "streetwear" though.

    I have a pair of grey twill Cloak pants with interesting hammered brass snap buttoning details from F/W 2004 that are supposed to fit this criterion, although I wear them sort of loose.

    the slimmest non-denim lower-than-normal-rise trousers I own are from Paul Smith, Moschino, Dolce & Gabanna. Not technically streetwear but I wear them in a 'dressy streetwear' context

    In addition to the labels mentioned, Andrew Mackenzie has made some really low, slim trousers.

    I kind of disagree here. I think streetwear has a lot of different substyles within it, some of which are wearing urban, edgy suits and trousers from the likes of Helmut, Raf, etc., while at the same time there are those with just as much a desire for edginess who wear Rogan, Engineered Garments, etc... I say this because I wear both types - on the "street" or not.

    If you can't wear it skateboarding, is it really streetwear? [​IMG]

    yea totally. I think of my suit collection as "streetwear" since I don't own a single "business environment appropriate" suit. It's all for Lock n Loll!!

    There are some nice looking moleskin ones from surface to air on yoox. I am trying to convince myself not to buy them.

    Your kidding me, right? I've never seen so many pairs of 46Eu or pants in my life (approx 29 waist), nor 28 waist jeans...

    In general,

    Eu50 = 33-34 (Depending on brand)
    Eu48 = 31-32
    Eu46 = 29-31

    I'm still confused. Say I pick a pair of dress pants that says 36(US), what size is that relating to jeans?
