1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    @cyc wid it

    Those Momo may not fit you the best, this is called cut (pattern). You cannot simply size down if the cut does not suit you.

    The taper suits your build, this is called silhouette

    If you want to hem the inseam, you can but I think it looks fine. Will be better after the denim settles. Everyone has their own preference

    Someone mentioned higher rise bottoms, this is called proportions and FWIW the oversized top helps keep both ends balanced IMO. Some other points to take note is your shoulders, which makes a 19cm taper suitable.

    This is what I think from looking at a photo. IMO I think everything looks fine. Some members say size down probably do the the bunching that is around your knee down. However, keep in mind the denim is still new, unworn, and not laundered.

    Yes I know what you mean by pattern, if I had to I would recut the whole leg. The fabric is worth the money and risk IMO. As far as proportion issues, I do struggle with it. Even though I've been nursing a shoulder injury for over a month, I'm not shrinking much more anytime soon and I have a longer torso. Super easy for me to look top heavy. I've got plenty of chunkier knits now, but that doesn't solve my bottom half issues. I've tried a variety of cuts (besides super slim and super full) and still haven't quite figured it out.

    What do you feel wrong with the bottom half in that photo? I think it looks fine. If you tapered it anymore I think that is when you run into your top heavy problem. You should stick with this cut.

    :( this shouldn't be so hard. I mean with some settling I'm sure it will look "ok" as is, but "ok" doesn't cut it. Breezy gets away with much cleaner and slimmer bottom halves I dunno.

    And yet it is. I had two pairs slimmed down this week (to 6.5" and 7") -- they still look sloppy. :facepalm:

    I guess it's not exactly clear to me what fit you're looking for on the lower half

    these look mostly fine, though perhaps would have sized down one due to the excess fabric in the thighs moreso than excess in the calves. they're also a bit long (you've got stacking everywhere), so should prob hem as well

    Can't size down anymore for waist sanity, these don't stretch like APC.

    If I knew what would look best I would just buy/alter to make it so...

    Could be differences in build and general style.

    I vote for challenge #1––a lot of people could participate and I know that some (Parker, Synth, YohjiCrew, the list goes on) could spin it in really interesting ways. But I may be biased.

    yeah, i think that's right. #1 it is.

    (btw, nice fit-- the boots keep looking better and better with more wear.)

    thanks to everyone else who also responded.
