anyways, I don't really like how the 501's look on me. They seem too baggy and not tapered well? I've never tried wearing skinny jeans. It just doesn't seem like my style and seems uncomfortable but after reading the last few pages, maybe I will try it. I don't want "skinny" jeans, more so I want "fitted" jeans. I don't mind sagging a little either. So ya, any suggestions on what I should try?
And any thoughts on the sizing considering my size? I will definitely go try them on but I want to get an idea.
If 36 waist fits you, then thats your waist. No need to compare it to what others wear.
501s are straight fit, so of course they won't be tapered.
Fitted jeans can be achieved in many ways.
Either by sizing down (which you dont want to do) or by changing models.
If you want something tapered, check out 521 (slim tapered) or 520 (tapered).
They can be found Levis.com or in most department store (Kohls, Belk, Macy, JC Penny... etc).
They have a tapered effect from the thigh to the ankles.
Slouchy, lower rise for that semi-saggy look.
Roomier in the thigh area, but as it goes down, it slims down.
While youre at the store, look for 513 (slim) or 511 skinny.
If these are too skinny for your liking, try sizing up 1, and it may fit better for you.
