I’m not very wity when it comes to naming my posts…oh well, I’ll work on that.
I don’t like how the 501′s fit straight off the rack as I find the fit to be too full. My issue with the slimmer versions are that they end up being too tight in seat and through the thighs. I really want a pair of selvedge, but I have yet to find a pair that fits without needing alteration. The way the seam is on them, makes it difficult to alter. Anyone have any ideas?
I got these slimmed up from about 2″ about my knee down to the bottom. I also had them hemmed. In the picture, it looks like it puckers out above my knee, but that was because I had been sitting all day, so material had bunched up. It generally doesn’t do that.
