And by high rise, I mean where you would wear slacks not 70's bell bottoms. I like to tuck in my collared shirts and having a well form fitting look head to toe. Feels like I can't find high rise jeans under $100 anywhere.

I'm looking at Levi's 511 but they sit below the waist. Quite uncomfortable in the you know where region. They fit fine if I don't want to wear them higher. 501's and 541's are too baggy for my liking. I don't like skinny jeans but I do like slim / almost taper jeans.

I'm a thinner dude, 5'10, 175. Typically wear large tops (mediums are too tight, larges are too baggy) and medium bottoms if that helps (skinny pants are too tight on my thighs).

I don't know of any manufacturers that are cutting jeans the way you describe. It's the same with women's jeans. If the cut is to the natural waistline the legs are baggy. The only solution is to buy the baggy leg jeans and take them to someone that can do expert alterations and trim the legs down to how you want them. Yah, you end up paying double the price but unless you have someone to help you do the alterations yourself that is the only option I see. Good luck.

Do you have a long torso? I have a short torso and very long legs, but my son is just the opposite. When we drive the other's vehicle, we have to fiddle around with the seat and mirrors. If you used to be able to buy jeans which fit to your liking, then there may have been a master pattern update.

Why does it have to be high rise? Can't you just find a longer length. The problem with high rise is that the average man does not have a flat enough stomach to pull that off effectively. Some men, myself included, just look better in slacks because denim does not do anything to make me look thinner. If anything is just shows off the issues I have.

Yea I typically wear 33 x 30. I've been getting 33 x 32 but it doesn't fit as well. I have shorter legs vs my torso.

You may have to suck it up and buy the more expensive jeans if that's what it takes to get a good fit. I'd also suggest that when you find jeans that fit well, buy several pairs. As soon as you find something perfect they have a tendency to do away with it.

I finally gave up on Levi's as they all seem (even "relaxed fit" or "baggy") to be cut too skimpy in the crotch. For me, Lee jeans fit better in that area.


I never have any trouble keeping my shirts tucked into jeans.
