    gmledbet, do you have a very long torso?
    The chinos seem to sit very low.
    Also their cut is not to my taste, there is a lot of room, erw ... between ... your legs.
    I think a fuller thigh and a less tapered leg would do you a compliment, the way they fit at the moment make you look super skinny imo.

    Batesy, buddy, I appreciate you making an effort, but these half assed camera angles show us nothing and invite even less. You really can't tell shit except for color.

    Louis XIV, I was actually thinking that as well, very unproportional. Maybe it was the camera angle. I actually am very skinny, 6'3" 130 pounds here.

    It's very tumblr'esque - cutting edge.

    Unfortunately my barracuta doesn't have the awesome double zip.

    Wow, that's indeed very skinny.
    I am 5'8 and 135 pounds and have a hard time finding well fitting clothes.
    Am really surprised the shirt looks good on you.
    What size do you wear in the JCrew chinos?
    Could you wear them higher?
    If not so, maybe a higher rise pant would improve the overall impression.

    SVB is incredibly tall and fairly skinny, good person to ask/emulate if you're trying not to look like a beanpole. I'm in a similar situation, but not to the same degree. Cuffed pants or full break, thick belts, and always wearing my jacket are my little tricks.

    The pants are 28X32's. I definitely could wear them higher, they were kind of low for this picture.

    I agree.

    It is taken to new heights (?) by the good old boys down home. They starch their jeans as well.

    shudder.
