    That's the question I have asked over on SW&D in the N&F denim thread. They feel too large but I don't want to part with them if I can make them work.

    I am thinking of tossing them into a hot water wash followed by a tumble in the dryer.

    I'd do a hot water soak in the bathtub and throw in a few large pots of boiling water. No joke.

    They look like they really fit where it counts (up top), though. If you want to lost the MegaMan vibe, it looks like a simple slim below the knee job would do wonders. :slayer:

    ^ This. The jeans would look so much better with a slight taper .

    Dig, I am a fan of yours.

    However, this outfit makes you appear to be 4 feet tall.

    Slim Guy? Should've gone with Weird Guy, if that's the case.

    Large leg opening + sleek chukkas makes for bad proportions. I'm guessing these are around 9 inches flat, I am correct? Go for 8.25 to 8.5. Like Vox here: [​IMG]

    I need a link on how to do this or maybe just do it like the picture, above! :lol:

    Doesn't that eliminate the creasing from stacking? I dunno. :confused:

    Well THAT'S not good. :uhoh: I'm already vertically challenged and I feel certain there will not be any further growth spurts in an upwardly direction.

    I copped what they had. There was no other choice that day.

    Thanks for all the help, gents.

    Never in a million years could I wear something like this. But, this looks great. Every detail is just right--stylish, casual, comfortable. What a great jacket.
