Jonathan is in his early 50's, stands at 5'2", and weighs in at 140 pounds. He has an athletic build because he has broad shoulders and an above average sized waist, but thin legs. That's why he looks great in our form fitting, slim-tapered fit pants. He's a great reference for sizing since he has an odd numbered true waist size (31) - how he deviates from his normal size in each of our pants will tell you how they run on the waist and inseam length.  

JON

He wears a 30" waist on the Jon 2.0 Performance Pants because they run pretty true to size after we corrected the original fit on version 1.0.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he wears a 25" inseam since at 5'2" that is the optimal length.

XAVIER

He sizes down to a 30" waist on the Xavier since the fabric is stretchy and fits his 31" waist easily.

 

KINGSTON

He sizes down to a 30" waist on the Kingston jeans since those jeans have a ton of stretch to them. The Xtreme stretch waistband will stretch almost 2 inches easily! He prefers a skinnier fit and by sizing down, he achieves that. If he went with a 32" waist, they would fit looser on the leg.

SIMON

He sized up to a 32" on the Simon since they run tight and require at least a one size up adjustment.

JOGGER

He sizes down to a 30" waist on the Jogger since they have a stretchy elastic waist.

Chayim is in his mid 20's, stands at 5'3", and weighs in at 145 pounds. He leads a very active lifestyle and enjoys biking, surfing, boxing and working out. His build is slim with slightly broad shoulders and a slim waistline. He's a great reference for younger, slimmer guys who want a slim and streamlined look. He wears his pants slightly below the hip and so he could wear a 25" inseam when given the option, though the 26" inseam fits well with a half-break. He wears an Extra Small in our tees and sweatshirts, but a Small in our button downs because he needs to account for his larger biceps and shoulders (boxing pays off!).

JON

He wears a 30" waist on the Jon Performance Pants as they run true to size. These sleek pants look great with low-profile shoes like sneakers and dress loafers.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he wears his typical waist size but takes a 25" inseam since at his height, that is the optimal length.

XAVIER

He wears a 30" waist on the Xavier. The Xavier is very stretchy, but not as much as the Kingston so he doesn't need to wear a belt.

KINGSTON

He goes with a 28" waist on the Kingston jeans because he is thin and the Kingston stretches a lot even in the waist. He even needs a belt at times to keep them up!

SIMON

He sizes up to a 32" waist on the Simon since they run very tight throughout.

JOGGER

He wears a 30" waist on the Jogger and has some room on the waist since the elastic waistband stretches.

Frankie is in his early 20's, stands at 5'4", and weighs in at 140 pounds. He has a slim build because he has a thin waistline with thin legs and narrow shoulders. He looks great in our jeans because they are form fitting and have a taper that fits close to his body and makes him look taller. Stylistically, Frankie likes his jeans short, that is to sit high above his ankles to show off his shoes. This "cropped" look is a modern and trendy look that give shorter guys a heightened look.  

JON

He wears his normal 30" waist on the Jon Pants because they run true to size. They're extremely stretchy throughout the body of the pants but don't give as much on the waist, so size up if between sizes.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he wears a size 30" since they are a bit less stretchy than the Kingston and Xavier.

XAVIER

He wears a 30" waist on the Xavier.

KINGSTON

He sizes down to a 30" waist on the Kingston jeans - since they have a ton of stretch, he likes to wear a belt to give them a more secure feel. If between sizes, we usually recommend sizing down, unless you have larger calves and quads.

SIMON

He wears a size 30" in the Simon chino since they fit a tad looser than our jeans but still have stretch so they're comfortable on the waist.  

JOGGER

He buys a 30" waist on the Jogger since they have a stretchy elastic waist.

Bennett in his mid 20's, stands at 5'5", and weighs in at 145 pounds. He has an athletic build because he has broad shoulders relative to an average sized waist, and average sized legs. He looks particularly great in our shirts because the slim fit shirts show off his muscular torso. He enjoys playing guitar and needs pants that are stretchy comfortable, but most importantly stylish! His favorite pants are the Jon Performance Pants in blue, and the Kingston Xtreme Stretch Jeans in Gray.  

JON

He goes with a 30" waist on the Jon Pants because they run true to size. He also has skinny legs, so the Jons look great as is. If you have thicker legs, sizing up may be better.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he wears size 31" on the waist because although stretchy, the 31" fits better on the thighs and legs for him.

XAVIER

He sizes down to a 30" waist on the Xavier since the fabric is stretchy and the 32 would be too baggy for his liking (they aren't offered in 31").

KINGSTON

He wears a 30" waist on the Kingston jeans since that's his natural waist size and the Kingston has more than enough stretch to accommodate his athletic build.

SIMON

He wears a 30" on the Simon 2.0 since although they aren't as stretchy as our jeans, they run a tad looser on the leg.

JOGGER

He wears a 30" waist on the Jogger since they have a stretchy elastic waist

Samson is in his mid 20's, stands at 5'6", and weighs in at 175 pounds. He has an athletic build because he has broad shoulders and an above average sized waist, and muscular quads/thighs. As a bodybuilder, he needs something that is stretchy all over, especially because he has big quads and calves. Notice how he has to size up 2 waist sizes in the Jon because it runs particularly tight on the thighs, though it is still tapered enough to give him the slimming look he's after. The Kingston jeans are also a must for Sampson because they accommodate his beefier lower body.

JON

He sizes up to a 34" waist on the Jon Pants because they run slightly small on the waist and Sampson needs the extra room for his thighs.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he also wears a 33" on the Bruce just for that bit of extra room in the quads.

XAVIER

He sizes down to a 32" waist on the Xavier since the fabric is stretchy and it fits similarly to the Kingston.

KINGSTON

He wears a 32" waist on the Kingston jeans since they have enough stretch for his build and the tapered legs look great on him, giving him a masculine V shape.

SIMON

He sized up to a 32" on the Simon 2.0 since they don't have a ton of stretch and fit better than the 30" waist.

JOGGER

He wears a 32" waist on the Jogger since they have a stretchy elastic waist and went with a 26" inseam because they look great and show off his shoes.

Elie is in his mid 40's, stands at 5'7", and weighs in at 175 pounds. He has a brawny build because he has a bit of a belly and wears his pants below his hips. Yet, he still has a relatively slim legs as his natural build is closer to athletic, but quarantine snacking hasn't done him any favors! His weight tends to fluctuate and he tends to reach for something stretchy, which comes in handy so he can stick with one size regardless of how much he ate that week! Elie is also a MASSIVE jeans guy (which explains our extensive jeans collection) and so he doesn't wear our chinos on a daily basis. His favorite is the Xavier Raw Wash because the dark color is flattering and slimming, and can be dressed up or down easily - plus, it has a ton of stretch!

JON

He sizes up to a 36" waist on the Jon Pants because they run slightly tight on the waist and thighs, though the fabric is stretchy throughout.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he also wear a 36" waist because they don't stretch as much as the Kingston and he prefers the room he gets on the the 36" compared to the 34" waist.

XAVIER

He wears a 34" waist on the Xavier because they stretch, he prefers the extra room in the thighs and waist.

KINGSTON

He sizes down to a 34" waist on the Kingston jeans since they have so much stretch. The waist can stretch almost 2 inches!

SIMON

He doesn't like wearing chinos! (But he would wear 36" waist)

JOGGER

He sizes down to a 34" waist on the Jogger since they have a stretchy elastic waist and fit him perfectly on the legs and thighs. Since we don't carry a 27" inseam on the jogger, he went with the 26" because he rather them a tad short than bunching.

That's why our tapered pants look perfectly proportional on him.

Gabriel is in his mid 20's, stands at 5"9, and weighs in at 175 pounds. He has an average build because his shoulders, waist, and legs are proportional to his height and weight. He prefers to have his pants to have no break in the leg. Also note that although he is 5'9" he wears a 28" inseam. Most guys coming to our site are used to wearing 30" inseams think they will fit a 28" inseam. But in reality they may actually fit the 27" inseam (or shorter) better. He also prefers the Bruce Jeans and has been wearing his blue Bruce Jeans for over a year, and they've faded beautifully over time.

BRUCE

For the Bruce, he wears his true waist size of 32" as they are a true to size fit Jean.

JOGGER

He wears a 32" on the jogger, although he could wear a 30" since the waistband is very stretchy - however, the 30" waist has tighter fitting legs and the 32" fits better on the calves.
