JE = John Elliot. I would ask this question in the JE thread. They are very knowledgable on denim and would be able to answer your question.

Looking at their denim, I would say they are definitely sanforized. Are you buying a pair of raw/dry denim or prewashed/distressed? Raws will definitely stretch, especially in the waist (an inch or so), so if you plan on not washing them for a while, I would take this into consideration. But yes, especially if your buying a pair with tonal stitching, having the waist tailored shouldn't be an issue at all, they'll be able to match the thread color close enough that it won't be noticeable. Also though, if you soak them in hot water for about 45 minutes before you wear them, you will get some shrinkage. Don't agitate them, just let them soak, and you won't lose any indigo. After that let them hang dry, and then see if you still need to get them tailored. But yea, their forum may be able to help you a little more on the sizing, but just general fyi.

They'll stretch about an inch in the waist, so if you can get them buttoned up all the way then they should be fine. Just gonna have to deal with an uncomfortable week or so, but if everything else fits well, then you should keep them.

Hi,

I need formal jeans. It means they should be soild both in texture and color. No excessive wrinkles - it means they should not bee too loose or too long.

I need two colors - middle blue and middle or light grey.

Now I have old ZARA (both blue and grey) which are great in its formality (can be worn with a dress shirt), sit well and not expensive at the same time but their new models are sort of tight in the croth area, so new models don't fit well. GAP has too casual jeans. UNIQLO jeans are also pretty casual. H&M jeans are in the same niche.

Where else should I seek for?

It somewhat depends on how long you go without washing them, and also how hot and how long you soak or wash them for. The hotter the water, the more the shrinkage, and if you wash, the more agitation the more the water penetrates the jeans and this will cause for increase shrinkage as well, but regardless of all of that, they will shrink back down to the original size at most. However they will quickly stretch back out again, so it won't be a big issue. Glad I can help.

What's your price range? Naked and Famous offers a million different color ways and will work as formal jeans due to their lack of detailing, however they are around $160 I believe, so they may be more than your willing to spend.

Check out Gustin. Best bang for the buck IMHO!

Hey could anyone recommend a lightweight, light washed denim that's skinnier and needs to have an inseam of 36+. I am willing to spend but I just don't wanna pay like 500$. Maybe 300$ limit? Can also be distressed but not required.

They are the cheapest that still are of decent quality, unlike Gap for example. I looked at Gustin and I would second elimmie's opinion. It looks like their product is of much higher quality than Unbranded's and is around the same price, however there is a waiting period to actually get your jeans, because I believe they take orders before they are actually produced. If you want it now, and you're on a budget, then just go with Unbranded, if your willing to wait, I would go for Gustin.

I would look for a pre-owned pair of Dior Homme's on ebay. They have a 38 inch inseam, and the 19cm model is the perfect slim cut and I believe the weight of their denim is 13.5 ounces, so its a great summer weight. They offer a plethora of different washes and distresses, so I am sure you will be able to find a light wash you like. A new pair will be far more than 300 (anywhere from 450-800+), thats why I recommend you finding a pre-owned pair. I can't think of another denim company out there that produces denim that is washed with an inseam longer than 36 inches. There are numerous raws that are that long, or shrink to that size but I can't think of any these companies that would offer light washed or distressed denim. 

 

Just found a washed pair right now http://www.ebay.com/itm/DIOR-HOMME-HEDI-SLIMANE-ICONIC-19CM-HEM-JEANS-/201090997086?pt=UK_Men_s_Jeans&hash=item2ed1f51b5e  ... no over the top distressing or washed design, just light blue denim that has the look of a really well worn pair of jeans (also there's a crotch repair, so maybe that can be your distressing).
