So ok then, I should not worry about stretching length. So I can feel free to hem them if I feel that the 34 length stacking is too much?

I should post a picture already....

Hem away. I'd leave about half an inch of extra length; that much may shrink in the first wash. If not, it's not like half an inch is a big deal. If it shrinks a little more than that (which I find unlikely), you can always pull on the legs when wet to stretch them a little.

If anything, you'll find that as you wear them more, the legs will seem slightly shorter as the honeycombs form behind the knees. It's not a very large effect, though.

Unwritten rule of this thread - it's only about the jeans.

Ok I apologize in advance for the poor quality pics but I was in a rush to decide on these New Standards.

I have been a bootcut purist for a long time and I wanted some advice on both the overall cut (I know its only a jeans shot) and the length of the jeans (not used to stacking or cuffing).

I welcome your constructive comments.

I usually prefer stacked to cuffed, myself, but it is a personal preference. Ultimately you are the one who has to wear these jeans, so if you aren't comfortable you could always exchange them for a pair of Rescues. I don't think they look bad at all, and with a sleeker shoe they'd look great.

How tight do they fit around the waist? It looks like they may be too big after stretching...

Thank you. I tried on the Rescues because I am more comfortable with a larger leg opening, but after the NSs they seemed like they would end up being a baggy jean. I am def not into that. What do think about the rescues in general?

Ruscues aren't my style. I've got some New Standards and I kind of dig the fit. Here's a pic of them fully stretched with over 3 months wear:


I sized down 2 for a perfect fit.
post #1365 of 13582
im thinking about getting a pair of NS...can anyone compare the fit to KMW 1980s, PBJ-005s, and thin finns

i own all of the above. i'd ideally like something slimmer than the 1980s and something with a taper (in contrast to the pbjs). i like the slimness of my finns (size 30)..should i go w/ the new cures instead? i heard those are super tight
