Simple Questions – ASK AND ANSWER HERE!- August 31
This thread is for simple style questions that don’t warrant their own thread (although we strongly suggest checking the sidebar and the wiki before posting!). Fit checks and “How’d I do” questions are a great use of this thread (although they can also go in the daily Outfit Feedback & Fit Check thread). Other example questions:Could someone take the chest measurement for a small J.Crew oxford?Is there a place with full measurements for Naked & Famous jeans?What slim-fitting green cords do you recommend?Where do I find a military surplus peacoat online?If you’re asking for suggestions for a specific kind of clothing/accessory, state what your budget is.Important: Downvotes are strongly discouraged in this thread. Sorting by new is strongly encouraged.

Thursday Discussion: Discontent

Thursday Discussion: Discontent
We’ve done several “contentedness” threads but we’ve never done discontent, so here goes.Every six months or so I feel the urge to throw out all of my old clothes and buy an entirely new wardrobe. I look at stuff that I LOVED just a few months ago and can’t stand it. I want to make radical changes (well probably not actually radical – but going from all black to adding a splash of color feels radical to me) and completely change my style.Sometimes the feeling passes if I wait long enough and sometimes I give into it and sell stuff. Often, I regret selling something a few months later when my tastes have circled back. I don’t know if it’s boredom or dissatisfaction or what, but it’s definitely frustrating.Does anyone else experience feelings like that? How do you fight it? What do you think is at the root of it?Are you bored for another reason? Dissatisfied with your wardrobe? Tell me about it, I’m here to listen.

I’ve tried a bunch of jeans and I still can’t find ones with a good taper and room in the thighs.

I’ve tried a bunch of jeans and I still can’t find ones with a good taper and room in the thighs.
Hi all! I’ve started to pay more attention to what I wear and I think it’s time for me to get a new pair of jeans. I’m currently wearing Levi’s 541’s in 30×30. My main problem with them is that they have no taper and a big leg opening although they are perfect for my thighs. I have been lifting a lot over the past year, so I need jeans with room in the thighs. After perusing this sub for a while, I went to a Macy’s and tried some of the Levi’s that were recommended. But, nothing was giving me enough room in the thighs.The 512 slim tapers I tried in 30×30 were way too tight around the thighs. And the ones I tried in 33×30 were also very tight around the thighs.The 502 regular tapers I tried in 32X30 fit almost exactly like the jeans I have right now. The 502 regular taper in 30×30 fit quiet well, but I feel like the leg opening is too large and it might be a bit too tight around the thighs (I don’t quite remember exactly how I felt about these when I tried them on).I have heard about the 508, but they weren’t available and apparently are out of production.General Info: I have thighs that are 23” around the middle, and they will get bigger with time. And for reference, I want jeans that fit like these pants fit on this guy: https://www.instagram.com/p/BXlG54PFuim/?taken-by=rexwoodbury. And on most days, I’ll be wearing them with white Adidas Sambas and a t-shirt.Any recommendations for any jeans that might be a what I’m looking for would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot to everyone that replies or reads!

Lets talk about the amazonbasics backpack
So 2 days ago there was a thread where someone asked about the most fashionable yet functional backpacks. I was scrolling through the recommendations and saw this comment with 85 upvotes where they said that this bag is really good. So I ordered it immediately as I always had a good experience with recommendations here on MFA.20 Euros sounds too good to be true right? And it is to be honest not really good..Dont get me wrong. I guess that you cant ask for more if you are paying 20 euros.But you cant call it a “steal”. This really feels like you only payed 20 euros for it.It is not a good deal if you really want a good bag for a good price.It fits awfull in my opinion and it also is not fashionable.On pictures it looks not that bad but this bagpack sags and is not really holding in shape.Also the “AmazonBasics” logo on the shoulderstrap is ugly.Better wait for a sale and get yourself an easpack that costs roughly 30-40 euros or even cheaper that fits right and has good quality.
