The length is a little long on me as I like to wear my jeans with a very small cuff a little above the ankle. So currently the legs are all draped weird and bunched around the knee and ankle. Will hemming help the rest of the leg settle as I'm going for a no break look?
As I said the thighs are a little tight now but I want them to stay around where the currently are and not stretch much. I want a clean no break and no bulging/giant ruffles on the leg look. Will this get messed up as I wear them?
Please help me out with this before I go crazy wondering if I got the right ones. Thanks!

i read back over this thread when buying my ps and i think synthese sized his pretty much this way. They look good on him, so you should be ok, especially if you wear them with a belt. if there's little/no tension on the waistband i don't see why it would stretch. the consensus also seems to be that the thighs dont stretch out that much anyway.

Really? Is this the expectation I should have for higher end jeans? I can understand with basic Levis and that genre, but should I really just say WTF and not give a shit that one leg was sewn correctly and the other wasn't? This is all about how it is sewn. Sewing 101 here. Is the bias of the denim going the right way? I have plenty of jeans that don't have this issue so why should I just accept it with these?

It's not sewn incorrectly. I'm pretty sure many people have the leg twist going on. Its because the denim is stiff and conforms to your movement. You can try to occasionally adjust it back and it will help this "problem". I've had HUGE leg twist on my dior's and there is nothing wrong with the stitching.

In fact, I think you won't experience leg twist with cheaper jeans, only ones with better denim.

I sized down one from my regular waist. Two horrible photos follow -- just wanted to get these up on a whim.
Okay...too tight? Warning: XXX (Click to show)

They look good. The only concern I would have is that you only sized down one. I imagine you measured your waist where you wear your jeans and then subtracted one? If that's what you did most people size down considerably more, 3-4, to account for vanity sizing and stretching.

I haven't owned by black selvage petits very long, but they seem to stretch more and quicker than the raw indigos. I'm glad I sized down 4.

We can't really predict exactly how much they'll stretch. That will depend on your waist size, how you wear them, how often you wear them, etc. Best way to limit the amount they'll stretch in the waist is to always wear a belt with them. Unless you really wear them hard, I wouldn't expect a lot of stretching, as you only sized down 2, which accounts for their vanity increase so there shouldn't be too much tension in the waist leading to a lot of stretching.

You can hem them to get rid of the stacks, but make sure to test it out to get a rough idea of what they'll look like. That's important since they are tapered, and taking anything off can change the ook of the jeans. Fold how much you want off into the jeans, put on a pair of shoes, and see how you like the look. Good luck.

jesus you sized down 4???

2-3 is the norm for NS, 1-2 for PS
post #8527 of 12858
It's not weird. down 2 for vanity, down 2 more for stretch.
It's really not that hard. Get the size you can barely button up.

^ You need to be skinny as fuck otherwise it's not going to end well.
post #8529 of 12858
I sized down 4 with my PS and they fit perfect now that they're broken in.

I'm not seeing how this would make a difference.

It baffles me that people are able to size down 4 in petite standards. Have to be skeptical if people know their actual waist size - I just don't understand how it would be physically possible to size down four and still button them (or even the second to last button). For me, sizing down from a 29 to a 28 is ball crushing tight. I would size down to a 27 in NS.

buyer beware if you're considering doing this in my humble opinion. Though if you do decide to...post pics thumbs-up.gif...and more power to you I guess.
post #8532 of 12858
yeah im a true 29 and go down 3 in NS to a 26 for indigo and black selvedge. i dont own PS but almost bought one in France this spring and would have taken 2 down to 27.

in all 3 of these instances, i could not button top button. out of 4 buttons i could normally button bottom 2, with third barely or not able to until at least a 10-15 min struggle and the top button after an extended wear like a day or two

4 seems impossible to me
post #8533 of 12858
Strange. True 30 waist here. I wear a 26 ps and 27 nc.
A 28 ps would be loose to start, 27 buttons easily, 26 is tight at first, stretches to be perfect.
You guys must have more junk in the trunk. teacha.gif
post #8534 of 12858
wow yeah i must have more of a badonkadonk ... i guess my actual waist is skinny but have bigger thighs for my size or something. but are you wearing your jawns right at your waist and not slightly down to like your hipboneish level?

are you sure your a 30 waist? thats crazy!
post #8535 of 12858
Unless the tape measure lies. I don't really sag at all.
But yeah for real, I feel like all size discussion could be ended by everyone just getting the size they can barely button at first. If another part is excruciatingly tight (thighs or calves or something) it's probably not the right cut for you.
