Jeans for a skinny lanky person

August 23, 2012 @ 12:32:57
Aight so I run into issues allllllll the time with jeans. I'm too skinny and too tall to get a size of jeans that fit. They are either to big in the waist and long enough or vice versa. I'm 5'10" and need like a 28x32 or something like that but its almost impossible for me to find. Anyone have any suggestions of companies or anything that may carry this awkard ass size?

Suit yourself

Not sure if you like drop crotch, but check out I Love Ugly.
The zespy pants are pretty long, and the waist has drawstring, so you can easily tighten it.
If you don't like drop crotch, they also have the jonty pants, more like normal pants, pretty long as well, but without the drawstring to tighten the waist.

@footyadd id drop a ton of loot on bringing my shit to a tailor before i bought some chick jeans like a little bitch.

You worried that your "homies" will mock you for it? Who the fuck cares man, I have 2 pairs of girls jeans... Do I give a fuck? No. If they fit well and look good then what the fuck does it matter?

Not even a stupid suggestion, some brands have girl sizes (size 30 and below), sometimes they're just the same as guy jeans, just smaller sizes.

nah mang I don't give a fuck what my homies will think of what i wear. i personally just don't want to buy chick jeans.

Why though? Easy solve to your problem....

Lmao how is buying girl jeans the solution unless you want some tight ass shit with a weird fit on the ass? They are sown for women, and that doesen't mean they fit someone skinny that means they fit female curves.

28x32 is a standard ass size dude, i see it all the time in stores. Below 30 waist and 34 length is hard, but almost all companies make them, the stores just dont order because they aren't as sought after. You can always ask them to call up the supplier and see if they can get a pair for you.

What you said is for the most part, wrong. I work in a clothing store and let me tell you, the jeans are not sewn to fit a girls curves. They are made in the exact same way as a pair of male jeans.

28x32s are pretty common.

What i said is correct, you standing at the desk in a clothing store changes nothing. I worked directly for the brand norse projects (not just store work) for a couple of years and that doesen't mean i know about how jeans are sewn. But keep believing what you want.

Check out some APC's or Nudies

If you buy a pair of Nudies, generally you should size up in the waist, so you should be easily able to find a pair of 30x32's. If they're a bit big you can always get them tailored or just wear a belt.

Levi's 511s. Can easily be found at Levis outlets and places like Winner's, Marshall's, etc. for $20-30. 28x32s are usually on clearance too because no one buys 'em.

If you're lanky, slim-fit can be too baggy looking, so go for skinny cuts. Super skinny(ie. Levis 510) are too tight, unless you're punk or still a teenager.

Unisex cuts are good, they're often slim enough for lanky dudes. Some girls' jeans are entirely passable and have traditional crotch size, but there are tonnes of male jeans out there that are slim/skinny these days that you don't _have_ to go this route.

Cheap Monday have some cheap offerings out there. I just 'debrand' them by taking the patch off the rear as I hate their logo. They aren't the best denim, but the price is comparable to H&M and the quality is much better than H&M. If you wanna spend a bit more, a lot of my friends swear by Naked and Famous, which are cheaper than most other raw/selvedge denim. Nudies are alright, but they aren't worth retail, so I'd only cop if they were clearance/close-out.

If you really can't find it, you should go to tailor and custom clothing.

cheap bracelets

I feel your pain. Nudie 'Thin Finns' are the best fitting pair of jeans I've found in a long time, also might want to try Levis 519. Definitely go somewhere where you could try them on first though, perhaps Urban Outfitters.

Just get some 511s. You really cant go wrong with them.
September 20, 2012 @ 14:43:27
What sort of style do you want though?

Feelin like a young simba, I can't wait to be the king.

I'm just looking for something more slim fit but i don't want any skin tight bull shit. i also have a hard time rationalizing with dropping a ton of loot on jeans especially ones that don't fit well.
