    Too large of cuffs, but I'm nitpicking.

    jeans aren't good, and you shouldn't try to wear jeans like trousers. would look much better with a normal pant. i also think you'd benefit from sizing down on everything - you have a skinny frame, show it off!

    I'd have to disagree. the jeans are slim regular cut and shouldn't be any tighter for his age or frame and the shoulder seam on his shirt fits, too. I actually don't see substantial extra yardage of fabric anywhere.

    the leg opening is too big on the jeans and the pants in general. and again, you can't wear jeans like trousers.. just makes you look like a dork. holdfast i remember you dabbling in jeans awhile ago - id stuck to trousers if thats how you want to wear em.

    I believe that's due to the length of the rise and the fullness of the legs. Perhaps compounded by the manner in which he's wearing them.

    Agree on the jeans. No one should look like that while wearing them. It´s a very strange fit... in a bad way.

    Not a personal fan of those boots, but I like this a lot - the '66 501 looks like a great cut for you

    Rob, how many rolls on the cuffs of the 501's and what's the height on them?

    Just two rolls, and about an inch on the cuff, very small compared to some of my other fits.

    It's piling on at this point, but I don't like the jeans either. Jeans should look beat up and lived in. Very few people in MC wear them well.

    Holdfast - noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!

    You rock those suits we normally see you in, but please never do this again. Those denims are dad jeans of the worst kind worn a la Simon Cowell, but strangely the shirt looks almost like kid's clothing. Shoes are also not really making it.
