THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

Recommended Posts

No not cruel at all!

What would be 'cruel' is buying him a pair of STF in size 29  tell him it stands for 'Stretch to Fit' and watch him struggle for a few days while you do your best to look heart broken..

Some time later...........

"Oh! what a pity"

"I'll have to chuck them in the wash before i send them back"

"Oh no! ive put them on a 'hot wash' by 'mistake' and they've shrunk"

"Y'know? these might just fit me"

He's relieved, you get a new pair of jeans...everyones happy! ..don't feel bad we've all done it :)

Ironheart maybe? Standard inseam was around 36“ when i got my last pair of them. 634 or 666 are slimmer versions of 501s in heavy denim, mostly in the top block.

thank you!  I am definitely considering those.  I think I like iron heart's back pockets better than the rogue territory jeans I was looking at earlier.

I'm also always on the lookout for raw denim jeans that have a 29-30" waist with 12" or bigger thighs, and a low rise.  33 inch or longer inseam. But that's for me, not for him :)

 and I prefer to buy already used/faded jeans for me (but I prefer to buy new for him)

it's's really difficult to stay in "shopping for him" mode :D

Hello in the USA,  looking for recommendations for a black high rise straight or slim straight. NOT a relax taper.  Need a FR of at least 12” for a 35.5-36. 
First thought is the LF NYC Black Maria greaser but they are  out of stock and the thighs on my indigo pair are pretty wide.

The new SC for self edge pair look interesting but they are definitely pricy....

thanks

The Mister Freedom 44 is a high rise straight cut that comes in black. It's dyed black though so black  all the way through rather than lighter on the inside.

TCB, and Indigifera also have good options

(Dawson, too, but if the Self Edge Cane’s are pricey for you those’ll def. be a no-go)
