I think they look great stacked. Give it some time and I think you'll really start to like the look

how's the denim on these jeans?

are they going to shrink or does Levis sanforize their rigid denim?

Don't cuff, wear them as the designer intended them to lay.

The denim is really nice. Has a good indigo color and a bit of slubbiness to it. I'm pretty sure all their rigid denim is sanforized.

*btw, I did an accurate measure with a tape and the inseam on a 32 length is actually 38"

I know this is premium denim compared to "plebeian" denim, but what is the fit of the stacked skinnys(skinnies?) compared to the 514? I have a pair of 514s, but i am looking for a raw equivalent. Also, how true to size are the skinnys?

I think they look awesome as you have them, too. Bunching looks very different on skinny jeans, I don't think it looks as good on more relaxed jeans, maybe there's too much fabric. That's a look I'd love to pull off, but these damn thighs just won't allow it.
If you're thighs are too muscular, then just starve yourself a little so your body starts using your leg muscles as fuel and will start burning the leg muscle off. If it's just fat, then just exercise.

it is skinnier than 514s. They run true to size as well, which the 514s arent (my 2 pairs of 514are size 30, whereas my Skinny is 32). the Skinnies are about .5" smaller throughout the leg than 514. They aren't skin tight at all tho, which is good.

the rise seems pretty low. I agree you should keep them bunching like that. Is this a Paul Smith shirt?

the rise is pretty low. Not as low as the Offender (too low) but lower than any other Levis I've seen. Yep, that is a Paul Smith shirt. good eye.

How do you guys decide when to hem and when to cuff? I have three pairs of jeans, all unwashed, that are just too long. But I keep hearing all this anti-hemming, pro bunching/cuffing talk. I read one thread where someone had pants hemed and regretted it. Do you follow any rules? What's funny is if these pants came in my preferred inseam to begin with, I would never say "Geez, I wish they were longer."

When i feel like wearing them cuffed, i will, but most of the time since i'm wearing hi-tops i let them stack. My jeans are slim enough not to run under my shoes, anyway. But if i were wearing mocs, for example, i might cuff them just for a more casual (or sloppy, if you like ) look.Hemming problems by and large only arise because the hem was poorly done, i believe, or the material taken in was too much.
