    I need some new jeans pretty badly & have a really hard time finding a pair I truly like the fit of. I'm fairly tall (6'1"), long muscular/athletic legs.

    I can NOT stand baggy jeans & can NOT stand tight jeans...I need something right in the middle, slightly loose in the thighs. I'm kinda feeling the straight leg look, since almost all of my current jeans are bootcut.

    I know the best thing to do is go to the store & try a bunch on, but I did that all this past weekend at several different stores.....they were all either too tight (like skin tight) or too baggy.

    My favorite pair of jeans I own are a pair of Lucky Brand that I got on clearance a few years ago, but they don't make that style/cut anymore.....I tried on several Lucky's this weekend & they were all too baggy (relaxed straight).

    I'd like to spend under $100 too....& no, i do not want A&F.

    the stuff in there isn't specific to what i need.......most of those jeans are $200 jeans, i dont want to spend that. plus, i think most here like the tighter fit jeans...i can't do those b/c of my legs being on the muscular side.

    I'm really digging this pair of Lucky's, but they're $150 & classified as Relaxed. The classic vintage straight doesn't have as many washes.....some of the washes are too plain too.

    dude are you fucking joking? why the fuck do you continue to make these fucking posts?
    there is a denim crew thread in there just ask your question about it and you will get answers
    do you think you should make a special post just for you because you are a baller?
    oh wait...


    also go to nordstrom rack

    kind of contradicts your name, no?



    also, you deserve every non-serious response, such as Baited's, you get in StyleLab... you should have asked in the denim thread

    you made your bed. either drop your fucking attitude or suck it up when people give you shit.

    you have made far and beyond more posts than anyone else, about "do you think this is still cool?", "do you guys like polo?", "are these jeans i just got at abercrombie cool?" seeking approval is not the same as seeking an opinion. the fact that every single person in this sub forum could recognize you as that abercrombie kid even before there was a sub forum should let you know which side of that scale you're on.

    as for suggestions, www.thedenimbar.com get some APC's. they are verry near 100 shipped after you put style4um for the coupon code.

    Hey. I would recommend checking out Lord & Taylor. They have a pretty abundant selection of jeans, and I know their having some huge sales now. Picking out the best jeans is such a hassle, I know this. Just keep looking.

    Do this.

    denimbaronline.com

    APC Rescues. (size down, they're serious. Go to www.contextclothing.com and find the rescues. They have the exact measurements, size down 2 sizes from the measured waist that is given (i.e. a 31 is a 33.5 inch waist, so if you're normally a 35 or 36 get the rescues in a 31, because they stretch a TON, the measured values are the sizes when new, waist and thighs will losen up a bit)
    The APC new standards are the skinnier jeans, but it sounds like you want rescues, basically a slightly looser thigh, but still a straight cut down.

    Gap is having a sale right now. You could also go to Ross. They have Lucky and 7 there sometimes.
