Nothing wrong with an unprovoked opinion, that's why we're here right? ^_^
I'll try to get an updated fit pic today if I decide to wear them, you're saying you'd go for one less cuff but bigger?
I think they'd be ideal with about 2 inches taken off the inseam.

First day wearing the 43's and I feel like they're almost too baggy.  Front looks good, back (top block) looks really big.

I've seen your fit pics across a few different threads, have to say those fit you the best. Really good fit, don't worry bout the saggy ass, that's just how FW fit.

Thanks! The saggy butt has already my girlfriend calling me “diaper butt” so that’s cool. :o

The diaper butt is always an issue with vintage cuts 

they’re not flattering to the backside

True, my CSF have the same issue but it’s not as exaggerated since the hips are slimmer.

Yea my FW 1947 have crazy hip flare since they’re still pretty new. 

It just makes the saggy bottom even worse. Need to break them in. Haha 

Honestly out of all my denim Roy, WH Ranch, Wrangler, Left Field, etc 

My wife says that the wrangler and Mister Freedom are really the only ones that look good from the back....haha

Deadlifting should help.

Nah. Been lifting for years. It’s just the cut of the jeans. Haha

Now that I look in the mirror, the diaper butt is more pronounced when I’m standing up normally. But I really don’t mind it or hip flare; I just embrace the repro look. B)

Very nice mate , was your pair that convinced me to buy a pair years ago ..... but then conners convinced me to sell them , if I'm honest I kind of regret it because they were lovely jeans

It’s not out yet it seems; I’d contact your favorite FW stockist and see if/when they’ll be getting them in, price, colors, etc.

The 661ZXX, AFAIK; before that it was the 1951 601XX.

Of the top of my head, it goes, from straightest to slimmest:

1947 -> 1943 -> 1951 -> 661ZXX
