    Had a pair of these delivered this morning and already packed them back up to return. Nothing against them just very "blah".

    hey ian... looks pretty good to me. don't chop though. wear them a bunch of times. wash/air dry. wear a few more times. then decide. imo jeans need some amount of break to look good. unless your cuffing, then no break.

    Ian, if you're going to wear shirts untucked, I recommend a much shorter hem. You want to lengthen the apparent line of your legs.

    Thanks guys! I just x-posted on NF thread and got the same response on a shorter shirt - I'll def hunt for some shorter lengths.

    I'm a newb with jeans so I appreciate the tip, Parker! These are my first "real" pair aside from the dad jeans I posted awhile back that got a few "burn it" comments :lol:

    I like that length as is.

    I just started breaking in a pair of US made selvedge 501 STF's. I hot soaked to shrink and now need em hemmed. Can any tailor do this? Can anyone recommend a Boston area tailor that's experienced w/selvedge denim?

    you have a long torso/short leg build, worked out too much to make yourself top heavy, and you wear lower raise pants/jeans while pulling ur shirts out. looks pretty bad no matter how things fit.

    tuck your shirts in or make it shoulder; uncuff the jeans or make the cuff even taller.

    just my 2c

    Ian definitely needs at least one inch chopped off, and even 2" would be fine, as you could go with a cuff that is less tall, a good recommendation for someone of your height.. having a big cuff at the bottom accentuates the shorter legs

    Size up in polo. Shoulder and chest look too tight

    Ian, if you want to do cuffs on those jeans, chopping off an inch and wearing them with a cuff that's half the current height would look much better.
