    So? Are your legs the same size as a sz.28? No, they're larger, but the increase in waist size should translate to a proportional change in other measurements as well

    Hey, blame the jean manufacturer. I have 22" thighs from my powerlifting days and they still don't quite fill out the Rockers in a size 36 waist. If I sized down to a 34 waist, I don't think they would close on me, but the rest of the leg would probably be OK (the knee might not be comfortable at that point though).

    i don't know what you're getting at. moo isn't as skinny as some of the 20 year old asians like you and me? im pretty sure that 6" in the waist in moo's jeans isn't corresponding to a proportionally longer/wider leg, which makes his jeans not look or fit as slim.

    Exactly.

    You are wrong in assuming that the proportions are the same across all sizes.

    That said, nice chicken legs notwithit! Look how thirsty you are, too.

    I caught shit on SZ for this but style DOES NOT stop at the neckline.
    Definitely agree here...that's quite puzzling they weren't receptive to those ideas. Pretty much no one on there has a babyface, lol

    Exactly.


    Um, you mean 22" diameter then, right? Or you meant calves instead of thighs? Or, this is a joke?

    HOW TO BOOT TUCK:

    Pants must be skintight or have a sharp taper. Basically the key to a successful tuck is to make it look like that is the only possible way your outfit can go. A good test for aesthetic sucess is to ask yourself if you have to constantly re-tuck? if the answer is yes, it's probably not working It can be done with looser pants but they would need to be a very thin drapey material. '

    The taller the boots the better, esp. if they have some volume. Horseback style boots or the iconic rick ones make for good boot tucks.

    This is generally not going to work with blue jeans or any heavy material. It is also imperative that the rest of the outfit be relatively simple. Skintight going in to a tuck gives you a little more leeway as the silhouette won't be quite so severe as a tuck with slightly bloused pants.

    As always look to designers who have done this successfully and make sure you do it with confidence and swagger. Like most more adventurous looke this will work much better for you if you are a) tall and skinny or b) Asian with long hair (and skinny) Boot tuck is one of those things that veers dangerously close to "If you have to ask it's not for you."

    Personally I do the boot tuck, esp if I'm wearing skintight jeans but much more often I will wear cropped pants if I wanna do boots - much the same effect and easier to pull off IMHO.


    This borders on bullshit. Asian with long hair?!

    Like most of what makes a fit appealing, it's all about proportions. The majority of those buying into the look are too short or too squat and the resultant fit is off. Or, less importantly, your photography skills suck dick.

    A slim silhouette is key.

    It's okay Gordon Freeman, sometimes you have to wear the suit you wore to work one day for the rest of your life.

    Taller boots is a good point...I'm not well versed on higher cut models for those of us with moderate peasant status. Tips welcome.

    what I wore today and used as my mc streetwear thing, already got a bunch of hate for it (I thought it was pretty conservative, guess I'm out of touch [​IMG])

    ^^^ Fit is great. "Out of touch" with the MC crowd is probably not necessarily a bad thing.... not really feeling the wallet chain tho
