I'm wearing Dojo's today...keep them on or leave in closet?

I've always been a fan of the Dojo's and own a couple pairs but never wore them. But since I took a good majority of the embroidery off the back pockets of one I want to wear them.

I'd like some opinions of whether or not this is an okay look or should these go back in the closet. I took some pictures of myself but since I am deficient in taking self-portraits...don't hesitate to ask for more fit pics.

Thanks in advance!

They look ok to me apart of being kind of tight in between legs and in the crotch area

Of course I know that. Hence, I took the stitching off the backs of the pockets as it appeared too "feminine" to me. However, I do like the fit of them and I do like that the legs widen out unlike a pair of flares. I own some Paige Laurel Canyons, too.

I came from that generation in the mid-90's where wearing wide-leg jeans was all the rage. Remember that?

I also recall them being worn half way down the ass and very loose throughout. Definitely not snug on the balls.

Either way is no beuno imo.

Those look 70s not 90s. If you are trying to say they fit like jnco you are way off.

I don't have anything against dudes in chick jeans but those just don't work.

There are some men that can pull it off very well. I think with other brands (like TR for example) there are pairs that are definitely more unisex looking. But Dojo's are not one of those pairs. Leave it to the womenz.

It pops up here time to time

Eta: about jnco


OP, I don't know if removing the embroidery was the best way to go. You could have color filled them or just bought nyd dojos with blue pockets.

This comes across as assuming that I have some sort of fetish or something like that. I hope that's not that you're trying to convey.

The Dojos are going back in the closet.

I apologize. I texted these pictures to the ex and she didn't like them either. I do like the fit better as the bootcut (mens) on me tend to be slightly loose. I considered trying skinny jeans but I do hold true in the belief that it doesn't work for everyone. Maybe I'll post some pictures again to see if it's an okay fit.

I saw once that there's a critique thread...where did that one go?

Again, I do apologize for taking your comment out of context.

It is all good! Amber posted the link to that. we tend to go off in right field and cut up, but do not take it like that. I am pretty forward and honest......sometimes it does come across rude, but that is why I say so.

I'm sorry, I don't like them either. If you like the way the legs of Dojos fit, though, have you tried the "Tripster" cut?

Sorry dude for all the negative comments, probably not what you wanted to hear. If you like them, than wear them.


And what is JNCO?
Maybe I am super old, but my generation had Edwins, Z cavaricci, and some kind of parachutte/Mc Hammer pants that I can't seem to remember the name of (see? I am old)
