For a guy, yes. I don't think I need to explain really, other than to say I just like them. So help me.

What I'm really looking for is basically just jeans that don't have flamboyant designs on the rear pockets. For example trendy brands like Levis, AE, Abecrombie, etc, have those signature pocket designs you can spot from a mile away. I love the way all of those jeans look, but I don't want to go for the flashy pockets. lol It seems like it's hard to find jeans that don't have flashy pockets.

Old Navy Womens The Diva Boot Cut Jeans is more like what I'm looking for if that gives you an idea. Something with that current look and wash, low rise, all around snug fit, in a boot cut or straight leg preferably. I like the Old Navy ones because the back pockets are plain, but it's not a deal breaker to have something on the pocket, so long as it isn't distinct and extra girly. I like all sorts of darker and lighter blues. I also like those really deep washes that have the stitching that really pops. I know that kinda contradicts what I said about "flashiness", but that sort of stuff I'm totally fine with. lol

Someone told me if flashy pockets is not what I want, then stop looking in juniors. I dunno tho, I definitely don't want "mom jeans". lol

Have you tried Lucky Brand Jeans? I've fallen in love with them. I have no butt and these look great on me! They have some fairly "Plain Jane" looking pockets, too. They have many different styles to choose from. Good luck!

I also like the looks of the womens jeans. As a man, I also have no butt, yet I would like to find "better" fitting jeans, since all jeans made for men seem to have extra material in the butt area. How can you determine which size to buy without trying on serveral different sizes?? I wear a size 33 jean in mens. Any help would be appreciated.

About a 17 in Juniors, 14 in a guesstimate.

Most jeans like I listed, are in Juniors sizes.

See that's what all the size scales would have you believe, but with most brands if I bought a 17 I could probably fit two of me in them. I try to go by what the waist actually measures. I find most of the time sizes 6/7/8 depending on the brand to measure about 30/31 around the waist and I go for those because most of them are made with some spandex to give that tight form fitting look.

I know my size, and I do not have anywhere close to a 33 inch one with a 33 inch waist, will wear anything close to a juniors 7.

I"m the same as you and I wear a size 10L in women's and a size 11L in a juniors. You still need to try them on. Sometimes a size 12 fits better.

You should try a women's size 10 or juniors size 11. I like the new levi's curve ID Jeans. The slight curve boot cut fits good and doesn't have any fancy pocket design.

Asuigeneris, what I'm saying is for me a 31 is usually perfect in guys jeans. A lot of times in juniors depending on the brand, sizes like 6, 7, or 8 usually measure as 31 around the waist. So it just seemed to me that the idea of 17 (if they even make that) doesn't sound right for a 33 inch waist. That sounds way big.

...a 6 or 8 wouldn't technically be in juniors.

Juniors sizes run in odd numbers.

...if you look at this, a juniors 17 is a 28 inch waist.

Though honestly that is not as accurate, as it should be.

...but still gives you an idea.

Well, I've notice some deviate from that rule. Like Hydraulic, they do sizes like "6/7", and "8/9", as do Areopostale and I'm sure other brands. Anyhow, the actual size given by each will vary some brand by brand, nothing is really concrete in my experience, and it's hard to say when they're a "vanity size" or not. So I stick with my handy-dandy tape measure, as it tells no lies.

Take for example, these AE jeans which are a size 14 (uh-oh, not an odd number). If they measure 18 1/2" lying flat, then they're like a 37 inch waist, way too big for a guy who is a 33.

I recently "discovered" Mossimo jeans, sold at Target. Very nice jeans. I like.

A size 14 is just a different type of sizing...that would be Misses.

Sam Fisher says:
Speaking of Mossimo, a size 9 is often a 32" waist. :)

Asuigeneris1 says:
...manufactures sizes are all different, that's pretty well known.

Mossimo is pretty low end, so their sizes are going to be off.

Get and use a TAPE measure.
Find out what your critical measurements are using well fitting clothing that you like
WAIST (not at navel unless wearing a kilt - usually somewhere south of that think LOW RISE)
RISE (distance from bottom crotch seam to top of front waist band)
LENGTH (INSEAM OR HEM - distance from bottom crotch seam to bottom of pant leg)

Now when shopping take your measurements and tape measure and size up your selection before
taking it into the fitting room. Might take a size either size of what you measure to save time.

If he is "out" shopping then it would seem he would have no issues...he seems to want to shop online perhaps.

...and I thought it was more about not having flashy pockets. o.0

Either way, Misses tend to not run as low-rise as Juniors...Juniors would be pretty odd fitting on a guy it would seem to me.

...most would barely cover up the goods.

Go to the shoe site They have a denim boutique that is just fantastic. Everything from skinny jeans to boot to flares in a variety of washes with just enough spandex to keep their fit with great inseams and all sold by waist size for 39.95 a pair. Not a mom jean in the bunch!

I never asked about measurements or sizes, I've got that down pretty well. What I was originally asking about was just jeans that have no bright designs sewn to the rear pockets.

Sam where in the Sam hill have you been in the past couple months ?

Glad you got the measurement thing down pat and can eyeball
yourself into what fits.

Now - - -
Ah ha jeans with NO BLING !
And so you don't want to look like a matador at a bull fight !
Well just avoid the young womens stuff.
Stick with the basic Lee's; Levi's; etc.
Look in the mature womens section but then you will not
find the trendy skinny tight pants leggings or jeggings.
The jeans you want are out there you just have to adjust to
where you are looking.
And bear in mind that jeans with all the silvery metal BLING
are apt to be more expensive.

I buy my Gloria Vanderbilt jeans at Kohl's and Herberger's.
Basic blues and some colors with just a trace of non-contrasting
stitching. These do not fit like skinny jeans but then if I want
something that slim and tight I just wear tights; leggings or jeggings.
With most of these there are no pockets and therefore NO BLING.
Well what do I do with all my man stuff that went into pockets before ?
Simply use a fanny (bum) bag or carry a clutch/purse with shoulder

I've been around. I didn't know you were waiting for me to respond?!

Anyway, I know that plain pocket jeans exist in younger women's sections. Take my example, Old Navy. They've got some pretty stylish ones and the pockets are bare/bling free.

Sam -
I was not awaiting a reply but just noticed that the last time you posted in this forum was late August.
I came across this Amazon forum rather recently but have been posting quite regularly at this other forum LINK:

I sign kss - Kilt/Skirt/Skort

And yes Old Navy has the generic blandness (NO BLING) jeans as well as Macy;s JCPenney; Target and a host
of others.
These are most apt to be found hanging up or laid out on a counter or rack off the main aisle.
There was a heavy trend for the BLING pocketed jean and pants this year and these were front and center.
Like all fashionable stuff it comes and it goes just like HEM lines go up and down and has nothing to do with the Stock Market.
Note all the BLING does not do any favors to a washing machine better to hand wash and line dry.
