So, you have even less of an excuse for this kind of post than I do
please keep reporting moo's shitposting
In re. the Gray caridgan. I think it is a little bit of a challenging fit, yes.
It's a very chunky knit, but also a trim and short cut. Seems as if chunky and oversized more frequently go together. I discussed getting the next size up with Greg at NMWA, our friendly Gray stockist, but he recommended against it, which I think was sound advice.
I do like it, so I will try to post a few photos buttoned differently and also worn open. It may ultimately not be the most flattering fit for me. But it sure is cozy.
I suspect it will look fine unbuttoned, or with just the bottom button undone. One of my Inverallan's was a little snug and wore better that way until it stretched a little.

Looking good Frank...Nice sweater..........I wonder how the sweater looks open.
On the Big Johns, do you expect the waist to stretch? Did you size down a size as some denim companies with their denim advise or go close to your waist size...Thanks.
i'm curious how many people have me ignored
Those jeans... What are they??
FWIW, I'm a 30 in most stuff and take a 29 in Big Johns (at least, I found a 28 to be too small and a 30 to be too big, so I'm admittedly making an assumption here).
Sadly, they do not appear to be Our Legacy 70s wash.
Thanks. I'll definitely post something with the sweater open.
I did look at all the measurements for these, not just the waist, and ended up with 32s (edit: as a 34US/50EU in most cases with about a 35 inch measured waist). There does seem to be a little stretch in the waist already, though the started out being comfortable everywhere.
Early going, but I feel as if the fit in this size is right for me. And the cut appeals too.
First pair of raw denim I bought a few years back I went with the sales guy's advice (different brand) that I should barely be able to get them on and buttoned and those were never, ever comfortable for me. Maybe it was the cut in part, but they were just plain too tight. That was a learning for me.
@cyc wid it Rick Owens if you just don't give a fuck, Margiela casual pants otherwise (best pants for small waist-hip I've found so far). Surprisingly, CCP also fits well due to the longer-ish rise, but that's a whole nother can of worms. APC NS + get tailor to taper, for jeans
Apc petit standard
@cyc wid it I like my Zams and 511s
I don't have any specific suggestions, but almost all of my pants are high-rise (or drop-crotch, it's the same thing ) with loose thighs and a sharp taper. KK Attachment, BBS, Label Under Construction, Jun Hashimoto, Devoa, Zam Barrett, Abasi + Rosborough, Individual Sentiments, etc. etc. all have made something or other fitting the criteria. It's hard to give recommendations for something like this online because sometimes it looks good and sometimes it looks like a diaper. Just look for a high rise and a sharp taper below the knee - comfy and sharp.
