For straight legged jeans, does it make sense to stack? Or simply, can it be done? Also, does it depends on the type of denim (regular vs. raw)? Assuming you can stack on straight leg, how can you keep it from unraveling?

Thanks for your assistance.

You don't really purposely stack. It just happens when your inseams are long. Its a big misconception that people think you actually have to do something to stack the jeans. You just wear em.

zig zag stitch over the threads

An obscure question. Is it difficult to maintain the selvedge line when you get a tailor to put in a taper? I find it very difficult to get slim denim for my waist size, so I thought tapering may be the best bet. Looking for hem's of between 8 - 8.5 inches, not easy. 8.5 is my go to for a straight leg, but I'd like to get some taken to 8.25, to change things up abit. Hopefully its not a specialty job and I can get it done locally.

Tell the tailor to take it down on the inseam rather than the outseam. It's doable.

That's what other people have said. Wouldn't it be uneven then... Or did I just 3D approximation fail..

People have done it before with successful results. Maybe you're just Aust-, uh, retarded?

Hey, that's a half truth! Honest to God, when I was born, the OBGYN registrar said to my mother that I was retarded. Honest to God. This post is probably going to haunt me.

Quoted for future reference. Question is, when you were born did the doctor slap you or your mom?

Neither, but my grandmother went ape. Hell hath no fury like a family matriarch with a retarded grandson. FYI, they were wrong. I'm just fat, ATM atleast.

Fat doesn't = retard?

looking to get some APC rescues, but a lil confused about what size. i'm a 34 comfortably, maybe a 33.5ish actual. on context, looks like i should get a 32 on farinelli looks like i should get a 31. any thoughts? also, where is the cheapest online place to get it from atm. 155 is the going rate, but some of the sites offer discounts for sf members. doesn't look like much off. incidentally 5 ft 8-9" 158#ish about 30" inseam, want rescues, b/c i have a relatively large seat

What are some good 1947 brands, in terms of quality? I just bought a pair of Levis 1947, and they fit me well, but want to get 1 or 2 more, but not the same brand. Thx!
