Denim Jacket for Tall Guy

Question from TC:

I just wanted some clarity on how denim jackets should fit. I’m 6’1 210 lbs. I recently bought a denim(M). I do not like baggy clothes. It fits nicely(snug)but was wondering if I should have gone one size up.

fade in raw denim

You’ve convinced me its time to step it up and invest in some quality denim. I’ve started to do some research on some of the “denim head” sites and learned that over time (sometimes as quickly as one year) high contrast “whiskers” can develop. At what point do these whiskers become inappropriate for casual wear? Can the denim have “too much contrast” for use with a sport coat?

Jean suggestions for relaxed thigh without being baggy

First off, hello everyone. It’s my first post here so I hope I put it in the correct spot…

I’ve recently destroyed several old pairs of jeans that served me well for quite a few years, but now that I’m trying to replace them I’m having a hard time finding options that fit me. I have a 30″ waist but a fairly muscular thigh region (soccer player) so most jeans are super tight fitting through there. (Levi’s 505s, for example, will fit perfectly around the waist but are so tight through the thigh I can’t even slide my fingers into the pockets). I’ve tried on Levis 550s, termed “relaxed tapered” which were much closer but still not quite there. Their 559’s, loose straight, great in the thigh but quite baggy around the ankles.
The 562s (“loose tapered”) look like they could work but they are a button fly–something I’d like to avoid.

Are there any options for builds such as mine? I’d prefer dark wash/contrast stitched as it best fits my wardrobe.


Raw Denim Bleeding?

Does anyone here have experience with raw denim? I was looking into purchasing a pair of Naked and Famous jeans, but I am particularly concerned about the indigo bleeding. How bad should I expect it to be? Does it happen constantly, or only when the jeans are wet? Does it eventually stop?

Thank you all for the help!
