WI(want to)W: the new jeans

After yesterday's jeans question, I had an inspiration and went back to get one size bigger in the regular length so they'd sit lower on my hips. (The long length was a bit too long without cutting it, and the regular length are a lot cheaper than the long length, also, so I'm a little biased towards making them work if I can.) So, do these work? I haven't cut the tags yet and I'm not thrilled with today's outfit - I think I should ditch the belt, for one thing.

(thrifted Helmut Lang cardigan, Fluevog oxfords in photos 1+2 because I need to walk a lot today, Sixtyseven vince knockoffs in 3+4)

    Great idea -- I think it works! Baggy/slouchy without being overwhelming.

    To me they're a yay. You could argue they're a teeny but short based in where they look to fall on your shoe in pic 2 but I think fit wise they're good.

    Man, I don't know why I am so undecided about these stupid jeans! Thanks for the feedback yesterday and today.

    I say keep

    Decided! I kept the longer, smaller pair. Very happy with today's outfit now. Of course I'm sure they'll go on sale online tomorrow or something.

    If they do go on sale you can get a price adjustment, I think. :)
