    That's absolutely wonderful to hear! Glad to know that some celebrities still dress the best that they can.

    I saw the movie over the weekend and really enjoyed it. It was cool to know that one of our members made the main character's clothes!

    Keep this quiet please but I have it on good authority that Hanks has signed on for the long awaited Carrot Top biopic.

    44 chest and a 30 waist? Funny question - how the heck did you buy suits? Limited to separates I assume?

    Most modern slacks, and even jeans, are a mid rise. There are some with a very short rise (jeans seem to be the biggest offender with this), that look horrible, as you point out.

    However, a mid rise (which is still modern, and not a more classic style), looks better on slim/fit men. A longer rise looks better on men with a little extra padding in the mid section. In my humble opinion.

    I wore lots of sport coat and odd trouser combinations. Suits were MTM's, generally with sack coat/jacket designs. ;)

    Mid-rise equals no man’s land that cannot be pulled up high enough and inevitably go down, resulting in ubiquitous saggy crotch.

    Unfortunately, many men are not as slim/fit as they seem to believe

    ^^Well, truth be known,
    we realize the extent of our growth in girth, we just don't want to admit it! LOL. ;)

    Ok, at the risk of exposing a house that needs some cleaning (and some removal of markers from children), this is how I am dressed today, not doing much other than running some errands. I'm in jeans that are a mid rise, do not fall down, and do not show my junk. I cannot see that I need a higher rise than this.

    For reference, I am 170 on the dot, 5'10, 40 years old. Chest is around 40in, waist is around 32in.

    Okay a newb question. How do we define mid-rise vs high-rise? Is it in relation to the navel/natural waist? Or are we talking specific rise measurements (outseam less inseam)?

    A 10.5” rise hits right at my navel. I like 10.5”-11” rises. I have two 12” rise flannels that I wear with sweaters as they seem a little high uncovered.

    So is something at the navel mid or high?
