    Hey Everyone,

    So I'm onto my second round of scrounging to find stuff that fits. I was REALLY disappointed I went into Diesel and there was nothing that fit the shortest they have is 30 in length which is a tad too long.

    I'm looking for a 28x29 or 29x29 really for jeans. I couldn't find much, I'm looking to drop anywhere from $150-300 for a single nice pair then about $50-100 for a pair or two of mediocrely nice ( which I might just buy whatever.. )

    Shoes, I have a pair of Dr. Martins right now but I'm looking to upgrade. I tried some on @ Aldo in Canada but all they had for dress shoes that I liked were non-lace which just felt really weird. So something that has laces, not too shiny, and not pointy? Maybe I should shop around this probably shouldn't be that hard to find.

    Watches is another thing, I need to get one preferably nice can drop around $100-200 on a watch something classy, needs to be adjustable to a fairly small wrist. Maybe a leather band underneath it to help fit but not necessary.

    Thanks!

    first, get rid of the doc martens because theyre reminiscent of catholic schoolboys' shoes.

    .

    Buy a pair of jeans that fit you well and get them hemmed.

    I own a pair of imperials and so far they are being altered to fit my body.

    I'm kinda nervous of doing that... they're so expensive :noes:. I should get a recommended tailor then to make sure I don't end up with duds.

    ok I'll toss the Docs... what's hot these days? Or just something nice...

    what kind of cut do you prefer for denim

    as for watches, for that price, you can get a decent Gucci/Kennith Cole watch at any dept store

    Don't really have a style I guess, little trendy? Kinda I mean I don't set out to do anything in particular.. normally have a pair of jeans, decent shoes, about 50/50 either wearing just tshirt or shirt with collar + outer "jacket".

    Sometimes wear a knitted wool hat with a small bill.

    I also need a good winter jacket.. got a peacoat but it's pretty heavy duty

    for most premium denim you'll have to look to hemming.

    when you said nothing at Diesel fit, in what respect did you mean?

    I'm pretty used to a low rise slim boot.

    Keeps them from being too baggy but also so it's not like it can't go over the shoe a decent amount. I'm up for dropping the boot cut.

    Particular store I went to only had 29x30, 30 is like an inch or two too long. They also didn't have anything with a slimmer leg. Lemme see if I can get pic.

    I wear my jeans as soon as i'm out of the gym. (After a nice shower of course)

    Everyday. Sometimes I sleep with them.
