two weeks pass...

Fellas, where can I get chino shorts w a v short inseam, 5" or less? So far I've found Chubbies, J Crew, and J Crew Factory, the Chubbies are 4" which is great but idk how I feel abt stretch khaki and also they are S/M/L/XL instead of actual waist sizes

I suppose I could get longer shorts and get them hemmed but I want them snug in the thigh and not loosey-goosey

Warmed Regards, (Stevie D(eux)), Monday, 10 May 2021 16:26 (one month ago) link

You could roll em up! That's what I do

Tracer Hand, Monday, 10 May 2021 16:27 (one month ago) link

Ya, this is what I've done for like a decade, but I want to see if I can manage to find a clean non-cuffed leg that is still profanely short.

the tailor at the dry cleaners where i get stuff hemmed can also take in the inseam. i recently accidentally bought some insanely wide legged carhartts (due to covid no try on policy at thrift stores) and got em fixed for p cheap

Stevie I'm seeing you wearing some of those, like, shorts that Stefan Edberg used to wear to play tennis

Tracer Hand, Monday, 10 May 2021 17:27 (one month ago) link

I love short shorts and a full sleeve top on a man, it's my favourite silhouette

still dont think that qualifies as short shorts, maybe if youre tall idk

lag∞n, Monday, 10 May 2021 22:32 (one month ago) link

Yeah short shorts are 2-3" inseam

I think Ralph Lauren Andrew shorts are 5" but they're pleated with a high waist, you're probably looking for a slimmer fit.

Adoration of the Mogwai (Deflatormouse), Tuesday, 11 May 2021 04:51 (one month ago) link

Honestly it's not hard to find what you're looking for, I have a lot of them, but I think i mostly got em secondhand

Feel like it's time I treated myself some new jeans. Jeans range massively in price and the fashionable cut of jeans seems to change every few years.
Ordering online for jeans feels hazardous as I know that in the past I've had to try on at least 5 pairs in a shop before finding one that fits just right.
My last pair was a nice charcoal pair from Replay and before that I got a nice blue pair from a company called Neuw (both purchased fairly cheaply at TK Maxx for about £40-£50).

But yeah, without wanting to spend a small fortune, what are people digging these days? Especially interested in jeans available in the UK for under a ton.

I need to find casual pants that are not jeans, I've been in a real jeans rut, but anything else feels like I'm dressing up when I want to just keep it chill

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 14:17 (one month ago) link

Yep, I feel a bit like that. Especially since I live in a very boho area where even wearing a shirt makes me feel like Little Lord Fauntleroy.

i like han kjobenhavn jeans

lag∞n, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 14:32 (one month ago) link

the cuts really don't change that much. pedal pusher style short legs have been popular for a little while, looser cuts, but all the old straight-leg and skinny styles are still very much available. i will probably wear 510s or 511s til the day i die.

Topman is good for trousers imo Moodles. Lots of cuts and styles. something like this for instance - https://www.asos.com/topman/topman-tapered-trousers-in-stone-cord/prd/21896431?colourwayid=60307597&cid=30222

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 14:40 (one month ago) link

ah I forgot you're in the US Moodles

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 14:42 (one month ago) link

I would not ever front as a fashionable man but: I don't like jeans. I feel fine in chinos year-round, no matter the setting. Banana Republic or Gap or even (gasp) Land's End. No Dockers tho - I am a dad but I'm not THAT daddish.

ngl, part of my hesitancy with lighter colored pants is that I'm certain I'll end up getting spaghetti sauce on them or something similar

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Wednesday, 12 May 2021 14:51 (one month ago) link

definitely a consideration

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 15:11 (one month ago) link

dark chinos are the way to go imo. i went on a testing spree the other year looking for non-low-rise, non-skinny cheap chinos and landed on everlane athletic cut and lands end "knockaround," tho those have a little stretch in the fabric that reduces longevity

adam, Wednesday, 12 May 2021 17:49 (one month ago) link

I wore some black Levis branded chinos a bunch this past winter, liked 'em.

I must protest:

"Designer" shirts which are 100% viscose. Can any living human wear viscose without actually wanting to die?

four weeks pass...

Man, I just got two hemp shirts from Marine Layer after seeing their targeted ads for years, and it just feels like the algorithm is too damn good. They exactly hit the sweet spot of "I'm a dad, but I still want to look cool, but I also don't want to look like I'm trying really hard to pretend not to be a dad." And they have the perfect fit for my still tries to stay in shape but a little soft dad bod.
