    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I really like 5ep jeans too and I havd the same problem: there fit doesn't suit my body type(6'3'' 210lbs. soccer player), they feel wa too tight all over for the waist size. I wish they'd come out with something with a bit more of a comfortable fit, for us non-slim guys.

    Really? I don't think the 5EP cuts (especially the straight) are slim at all. Though, at 6'3" there's no way the inseam would work out for you anyway :p

    Wow, surprising comments. I bought the 33", and I'm really a 34"+, and they were slightly baggy on me. I have pretty muscular thighs, and I had no problem with the fit, whereas what I really consider slimmer jeans (like the bootcut ola) I literally had to squeeze into. For reference, I'm 5' 10", 180 lbs.

    I have the one wash straight downs.

    I wear 34 to 36 depending on the jean and the cut. I wear 34s in PDCs and Sevens and 36 in Bootcut OLAs, I was going for the 36s because I thought they were really slim but if they're not it should be OK.

    The Straight downs will fit you. You probaly tried on the bootcut. However, as someone else posted, with a standard 32/33 inseam, no way they would fit in the leg anyway.

    My 5ep were a size 29 and fit like a relaxed 30. I'm sure they would have stretched out to a 31 with ease if they were tighter on me.

    Yeah, I've tried the low boot and vinatge cut(light ones at active endeavors) and both were too tight and fitted for my taste. I was under the impression the straights were tighter than the low boots for some reason. If the straights are a bit looser, anti-fit I may have to have a go on them then, thanks for clearing that up[​IMG]

    help! i want to snag one of the 5EP's from steven alan, but I dont know what size. I wear a 34 nudie regular ralph and it is a tad bit to loose. Should I get the 33's or 34's?

    in response to twinn885-get the 33's. as for jomak, why don't you look into a larger cut jean. I went to the store the other day thinking that I wanted a pair of slim style jeans (6'3, 190, 33-34 waist) I couldn't fit into any style the patient salesgirl gave me. she snuk in a pair of meltin pot morgans (check their website for specs) and they fit me like a slim cut would on a smaller guy-if you're a 34-36, you might not even like they way you look in a raw straightleg. I tried on the nudie straight sven's yesterday and they looked good I'm buying a 33. or, go with what everyone else said at the begining and get the apc's..but get the straight leg (aka new rescues)

    Thanks for teh advice but -- 1. ALL SALES ARE FINAL and 2. I actually like the slim look of them.

    If for everyone else they were loose and for me they were tighter then I'm just fatter than y'all -- no biggie!! But after 2 days of wear i can take stairs 2 at a time again, i can pinch about 1/4" in my thigh the seat is relaxing. I don't mind them one bit. I know they will continue to loosen up in all the tight fitting areas so they are a work in progress and it's kinda fun. My chucks look like skis on me though but that comes with the 'non-bootcut' territory. All in all I am happy with them - will get som Svens or Resuces on my next go 'round. I am the type that likes to have lots of cuts/washes in my closet to choose from - i am not like some who religiously wear ONE type of jean.

    As far as these 5EPs go, they are pretty tight, I would say almost the same as bootcut OLAs. I can fit into them but they will take awhile to stretch out to be comfortable enough to wear, but I sorta like that type of fit, because it ends up fitting perfectly, many jeans I buy end up being too loose in the waist and in other places. The only problem for me is that I have muscular calves and it sometimes is a tight fit there, but these seem fine.
