    I'm wearing a pair from @Todd Shelton right now. The custom fit process allowed me to get my all-time favorite fitting jeans on my first try. I'm looking forward to replicating this fit in a few of the fabrics.

    Shocked I hadn't heard of Todd shelton before this. I have been buying either lucky 363, which have a nice rise or a fit replicated based on 363 from luxire. But recent turnaround time from luxire was so bad, I'd love to find a better option and a local option would be even better. I am looking forward to stopping in at todd Shelton the next time business takes me across the Hudson.

    @Eli Curt that's actually not a bad look at all. The white shirt is a good choice and is under-utilized with jeans. I agree that those glasses don't look good.

    I like those statement glasses. Refuse to blend into your surroundings, Eli.

    I like they way they allow for customization but don't go overboard on options. Which options did you go for?

    I contacted Todd and gave him information about what I was looking for in a pair of jeans. Todd asked some questions and then sent me a fit kit with two pairs of jeans to try on. Neither fit particularly well. In fact, both were terrible if we were A/B testing. But the point wasn’t to fit into one of these jeans well, the point was to test certain points and figure out what would fit well. I tried them both on, took some photos, sent some notes with the photos and let Todd figure out the fit to match my initially stated goals. In my waist size, I went with a ¾” higher rise, one of the more relaxed top blocks, a normal knee, and a slightly slimmer leg opening.

    They are black jeans I ordered to fill a gap in my closet, so I didn’t expect to put them into heavy rotation, but I have found myself wearing them way more than they deserve from a stylistic perspective and I will be ordering a pair of Pro Dark Originals shortly.

    I know everyone is different but what did you select for the upper block?

    I’m a regular-lean ish body time (6ft, 185, 34 waist, not chubby but not overly skinny). I figure basic would work, but one mans slim not skinny is another’s “my thighs can’t breathe in these, they’re so tight”. I’m looking for a slim-ish look, not baggy but not tight.

    Maybe the trial service would be helpful for you

    My fit is the Relaxed upper block. But 100% anyone that is going to buy from Todd Shelton should go through the fitting process. I have literally hundreds of pairs of pants, and I am very handy with a tailor's tape, and I know my measurements well and I still think the best fit came from going through this process.

    I want to highlight that @sugarbutch has never played guitar for StyFo meetups, ever.

    But I did invite folks to see my band (in which I play drums, so I guess that doesn't really address your point...)
