WTF is up with all the new cuts of jeans?? Its like everytime i try to go cop some denim all the jeans are cut like skinny jeans. I grew up in the baggy jean era, but obviously im not trying to rock them old joints.

Its like a nigga damn near need a tailor just to buy some jeans. There seem to be only nuthugging skinny-type cuts.

Im not with the denim leotard look, so what options do i got? Buy em a couple sizes bigger? Is there a certain cut thats relaxed? IM this close to actually hiring a tailor for real.

Summer just past so i was mostly rocking cargo shorts.

**mods** would of posted in FF, but lets be honest, its dead. So please let this breathe for a min.

    True shit. Skinny jeans fuckin' up the market.

    Can barely find any jeans nowadays that's not "regular" or "straight leg".

    Never thought I'd miss Rocawear jeans but this skinny jean movement is makin' a nigga do just that..

    I asked the lil gay nigga @ Macys and he basically said all the urban lines have basically switched to Euro styles except for LRG and Sean John.

    Im the type that cares more about comfort over brand name when it comes to jeans. But they aint leaving a nigga no options

    In that case, buy LRG and Sean John jeans.

    Well u got True's (Billy cut), Diesel's (Zathan cut), Cult of Individuality's (Haagan relaxed cut).. these are all bootcut relaxed jeans that should be fitted enough for u but not really "tight" or anything, and u can always size up 1 if u aint comfy.

    They bootcut so they'll go over ur kicks and not squeeze ur ankles and shit... but if u dont wanna spend upwards of $180 on jeans or whatever there's always Levi's (527 cut).. u could just size up 1 on those cuz they might be a bit tight to you.. but yeah.

    Get the basics w Levi's
    Just get straight cut (501)
    Or if u wanna slim down a lil get slim-straight (514)

    Then u can get the premium denims later which have more designs and washes

    Kat, as big of a CB fan you're im surprised u didnt realize I only troll/talk shit in Donkey and the PowderRoom (which has become an ext of Donkey), oh and the FF when im shittin on Cap B.. Other than that I stay on topic in any other forum I post in and very rarely partake in any fuckery. True story.

    Appreciate it my dude. So bootcut is the most relaxed fit? Im trying to get my knowledge of the fits up so i can just cop online,the easy way

    Yeah, bootcut sounds like what ur lookin for.. although they are diff kinds of Bootcut jeans, regular and slim, I usually go with slim but u might prefer regular.. like I said if u want sumn affordable and practical, go with Levis 527's, thats slim bootcut, but they have a relaxed fit bootcut as well, dont know the style number tho.. but just ask and they'll tell you. Plus Levi's is sold everywhere so im sure ur Macy's a have em.. or u could check the Levi's website as well.

    you are probably shopping somewhere weird. Every department store carries ALL styles of Jeans. you can't go wrong w/ Levi's. just look at the # and the tag and they tell you right fucking there what style they are. i get the 559's or 569's both of those are loose fitting. i also got a couple of Nautica jeans that i really like. both are loose fit. Pretty much any brand that isn't jnco or whatever michael Jordan wears is gonna have a regular sized jean and call it "loose fit"....i don't even fuck with anything that says "relaxed fit" because i can't relax in them at all.

    LOL! WTF! express to me is the worst place to shop. But I am 6'2" 230 So that shit aint made for me.

    Levi's and Sean John. I forgot the kind that shrink fit but I get those two sizes too big. They shrink down but not around the waist alot. So I have my mother in law take in the waist.

    But watch out for Glamour sizing. Glamour sizing is when it is really a XXL but they label it a XL (tall) or something like that. Most business casual places do that. Dockers are true to fit. American Rag and Buffalo usually have some straight leg jeans online (Macys.com) but not in stores. LEVI outlet stores are the best place to get a great deal on Jeans too.

    MAN YO BEST BET IS TO GO TO MACYS OR WHOEVER SELLS A LARGE VARIETY OF LEVIS AND TRY THEM.. THEY GO MANY DIFFERENT CUTTS, SO YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM THERE

    This...if you are in the woods just go to Levis.com. They range from super skinny to relaxed.
