    I actually like this one better UC... can see the different tones of blue and textures of the materials. Is everything denim or is that first layer shirt linen or something? Anyway it looks great... keep wearing those jeans! :)

    After yesterday's attempt at casual which I feel went something like when a Wall Street finance guy goes on vacation in Montana and tries to blend in with the locals, I figured I'd try out that scandinavian blue/grey/brown palette.

    Sorry for the stare of doom, most of these were taken before I'd ingested my first litre of tea this morning. pants and shirt still need a little tailoring, but I dont think they're terrible.

    Tailor the pants - make them slimmer all the way down. Then tailor the shirt-sleeves. Then it will be your best post in history. [​IMG]

    I can see you looking like Steve McQueen a year down the road - both because of your aesthetic direction and your face/body structure.

    NYR, nice color combinations! your casual outfits are at a much higher caliber than your suits/formal stuff.

    Thank you :) I hate boot cut, slimmer and stacked or slimmer and hemmed?

    Well, they don't look like jeans, so I'd say you could go with stacks or no break - just depends on the context in which you plan to wear them. In the context of the fit you just posted, I think they'd look good with about 3/4 in. removed. Whatever - it's your call.

    Also, I think they should be tapered. They look bootcut as it is.[​IMG]

    *****edit*****

    For reference, I recently had a pair of chinos slimmed and tapered. Before that, they fit exactly like yours do. They have some stacking now, which I like, but I'm not sure if you should go for something this slim or this tapered or this stacked. Maybe you could have your pants altered in stages, because once the fabric has been cut you can't go back and change it.

    Anyhow... here they are:

    Lol, I'd meant I hated that they WERE bootcut. I'm thinking something like what you've got those altered to is about the fit I want, maybe a tiny bit less stacking. Tailor's pretty smart, I'm sure she'll do right by them.

    I'll say it again - not to press buttons, but just really - tailoring denim?

    Being originally an SW&D-er, this makes no sense to me. There are SO many options out there that I can't fathom needing to tailor denim, especially bringing in a boot cut. Buy something that suits you. I guarantee you'll be happier with it.

    Not trying to be a dick here,

    A) Its not denim. I only own one pair of jeans, these are not those.

    B) It costs 15 bucks to alter. That I can (kinda) afford. A new pair would run me 100. I bought jeans a month ago on forum advice, that I couldn't really afford, and had the fit critiqued to the point I'm wondering why I bothered. It gets kinda tiring hearing "buy better clothes" when I'm working my ass off and hustling whatever I can on the side to pay for the gas to get to classes.

    A) My bad - read through the thread too fast

    B) This is understandable. I work and do school too, so understand that.
