Q&A MENS: Straight vs Bootcut at 6’3?

Question:  So, I am a 25 year old guy.  6’3 around 205 and fairly fit.  I am trying to upgrade my denim a bit and had a fairly simple question.
I am used to wearing bootcut jeans, but as I have done some research it seems like I am mostly reading where a guy should go straight leg.  That has led me to be really interested in a few pairs of Hudsons.  particularly the Renshaw (regular straight leg) and the Langport (slim straight).
I’m not really used to wearing straight leg jeans, and I want something that will really fit well and be versatile.  So, I was wondering if you would recommend either of those jeans for me or if I should stick to bootcut and maybe go with a pair of hudson slim bootcuts?
Any help you can give would be appreciated, although I know you’re busy, so no worries.
ps.  love the site…just recently found it and it’s awesome!
ButtTherapist ANSWER: busy- well, you caught me during my relocation to the big apple… I am still chewing! Go for a lean easy straight leg for a night out first! I know you have light beat up jeans that are relaxed and easily worn with flip flops in the summer.  As a SWF I still prefer men to be wearing a jean that is masculine and not grabbing the back of the thigh. I would suggest based on your height and age to get a couple new pairs to throw into the closet.

Jackson, I hope this was a little helpful- all these denim brands make a 36 inseam so no worries on the length just make sure you specify what you need. Always know that the waist can be taken in by any tailor for under $20.00* bucks. Build a collection of Light, medium, dark, dressy (mercer wash w/ selvage) and a fun pair before you start duplicating washes. I would play around with some G-star and maybe a pair of PRPS.. they are fun and beautifully constructed jeans. Thank you for posting and following my denim world.. glad to have you in it!
Good luck and keep me posted!
All my denim love,
