I think we can all agree the denim fit o meter is very palpably swinging away from slim/skinny fit. Get out that slim straight/regular leg denim, friends. Increase your ideal leg opening by 1/2 an inch at least.

Actually I think there's still space for the 7 inch leg opening but it has to be acheived by a strong taper near the end rather than drainpipe skinniness all the way down.

I remember when I thought my New Standards were way too baggy. Now I'm looking for parachute jeans.

I'm still not on board with the huge jeans thing. I don't mind oversized sweats, wool pants, trousers or any of that, but denim is too heavy to look good hanging that loose imo. I'd advise anyone thinking about buying really big jeans to stop and think about Jncos for a minute before pulling out your wallet :mrgreen:

@heckawheel Ok, Levi's Red. Still don't like the way loose jeans look.

I think trouser fit is one of the things people get most defensive about in life.

I think it's neat that the entire gamut of leg-hugging, tapered, and super relaxed can all co-exist. I sure as hell will get defensive like @bela said if wearing jeans with any sort of slimness makes me a square.

Love the roomy thigh, high rise, smaller leg opening thing that's been going on though. Fits my body shape. Any jeans that really fit that look?

I found a really ancient pair of LL Bean jeans that were so faded they looked almost acid-washed. If they were 2 inches smaller in the waist they would have been perfect. :C High waist, relatively slim leg. 30/34 is a hard place to be sometimes.

Got a free pair of raws from Heebee Co... now I feel obligated to wear them. My plan is to machine wash them normally. Idgaf, I fart too much to keep them unwashed.

After a few months of letting them sit around and wearing Uniqlo jeggings, I had a local tailor repair my APCs. They fixed the crotch blowouts and redid the hem for $14. Not a bad deal.

I missed wearing raws. I missed the slightly looser fit of these and I certainly missed the fades that already came in after just 5 months.

feel like I want the impressive fades of apc, the brand identity of levi's, and the fit of ??? (still figuring this part out......)

tried on a pair of PS's sized down 2 when I was in NY and was shocked at tight they were throughout. these are extremely popular jeans & I have an average slim build, so I didn't expect to dislike the fit so much. they must stretch a ton everywhere (even in the thigh) right?

I'm working on a pair or Jiberish x Momotaro jeans right now, suspecting I'll give them a first wash soon. Unfortunately, they fit a bit tighter now than when I got them, not sure if it's the beer or the deadlifts. Hopefully they wont shrink too much.

Just got my first pair of straight cut jeans since I was probably 12 or so. I can't bring myself to wear them without cuffing to the point in which they don't get baggy, or just pinrolling them.

I don't think the wide hems are for me unless it's cropped. Though I like baggy that tapers to a tight ankle. I would be curious about a wide j-shape though, especially if the curves were particularly extreme.

I've had my APC Kanyes since christmas and they're an alright jean. Designed by the man himself.

I feel that he literally designed them for himself and people with his body type only.

It's incredibly minimal, really stripped of all detail, no arcs, patch, rivets, 5th pocket and blank fly buttons. Very very simple design, I think the cut needs work though it's stacks are quite lacking and I think if I had shorter legs it would be better (32" inseam)

A very skinny cut although not skin tight, extremely wide waist (my pair is a 27 and im between a 28 and 29 but the waist is around 30"+ and extremely wide on me, always have to wear a belt) which I've read is so it's easier to sag.

Details like that are what leads me to the conclusion that he designed them for himself as stuff like that really lends itself to his body type.

Fades are alright I guess not proper quick but a nice contrast, will probably wash at the end of this month to mark 6 months of wear.

Currently have my JB0716's,Tellason JGMs (16oz), and my UB121s.

JB's aren't really fading too much which is what I wanted. The JGMs are just for daily wear, these aren't known for fading which is what I like. And the UB121s fade like fucking crazy and I just use those for skating around or when its cold af at school.

I think when people get 2+ years on their jeans and have super syk fadez or w/e they look really trashy. From a hobby stand point they're cool and all but I can't see myself wearing faded to hell jeans day in and day out. That's why I love the JB's and the tellasons, they're really subtle.

Looking to getting some Oni's for their texture. Then rounding out my rotation with the BOM008's in August.

I feel like Onis/Momos/JBs/Tellason/UB is a solid rotation and I'm hoping I don't feel the need to add to my collection after that. I'll have a pretty good selection, some solid black/black, some good texture, some indigo/indigo, some heavy weight, and some regular old indigo/white mid weights.

I may have found the pair of jeans I've been looking for.

Image

So after this post i spotted some W)taps jeans on the cheap. They were a little bit bigger than my usual measurements but I decided to try my luck. I was a little worried about wtaps' notoriously short inseams but i'm not particularly tall so I pulled the trigger.

Here are some fit pics:

Image

Image

The inseam is a bit shorter than what I was looking for and I'm not entirely sure if I'm down with them 100%, but I do really like them.

Maybe it's just because I love W)taps, but these jeans have some seriously cool details-I'll leave some pics in the spoiler.

I agree with the sentiment of looser shirts and bigger shoes, just snapped this pic real quick, wasn't so much of a fit.

Normally wear these with some big tees and af1s 8)

What are people's thoughts on Gustin? Looking for a cheap pair of raws and would rather not do Unbranded.

Also open to other suggestions.

What's the general consensus on sizing? Do you size down? I know many people do to accommodate for stretch, but does anyone have any experience with going TTS?

I got a pair of Rogue Territories and they fit very well but I'm not sure if I should keep them, since the waist isn't really snug.

i size up and washed hot w my diors and they fit great now.

i think tts is usually a safe bet for most jeans. (tts meaning your normal size, not your actual size since jeans, measured tend to be between 1-2 inches larger in the waist than tagged)
