I hate how the leg joins the thigs on the photo.. it is less awkward in RL, problem is my legs are a bit crooked, this is especially noticeable when standing still and facing front.
Here is another picture:
The problem with hemming could be one of two things. It could be that the jeans look different rolled than hemmed, so a good rolled length isn't a good hemmed length. Or, it could be that you have a bad tailor.
I've had many pairs of jeans hemmed, and IME they always look different than I had expected once I get them back.
Go ahead and soak - you'll barely lose any indigo. I soak or wash my jeans every couple of months (inside out), and the shrinkage helps the fades (tighter jeans = more fades).
I'm thinking of getting the "lightweight jeans". I'm usually a 30. but Barneys only has 28. I assume these aren't raw denim ... so am i still suppose to size down?
