You guys have given me a lot of good ideas. I'm totally into the OSB, Red Wing, and Wolverine 1000miles. In a fit of impulse yesterday I ordered Clark's desert boots for now since they're cheap and seem to be good shoes for the warmer seasons. Once I go to school I'm going to check out Independence and try on some OSB's to figure out my forever boot. Any other stores that might have Red Wing/1000 Miles/Alden type boots in Chi?
Back to thread topic:
I'm noticing a 'shelf' of bunched material directly under the knees of my jeans when I stand. There's a lot of extra inseam on my skinny guys and I was hoping the stacks would eat it all up but the bagginess looks odd to me. I read in an interview with the Blue Owl guy that wearing the jeans while they are wet/drying can cause it, so would it shrink back after another wash?
I haven't had any alterations done yet, but what helps with this issue? Tapering the leg from the knee down or getting the inseam hemmed shorter? I can post a pic when I get home from work to make things clearer.

I've decided to say f*** it to not washing jeans and see what happens to the precious fades when you treat pants like a normal person. I'm not cool enough to hang with the seasoned denim enthusiasts. It scares me to think about people who say they haven't washed jeans in 3 years... maybe if there were custom-cedar-manikin-leg-shoe-tree contraptions for jeans i could try.
