Hey so I'm 5'5' 135lbs with a 30'' waist and 20'' thighs. I think I'm going to pick up some 15 oz size 29 skinny guys. I'm pretty sure the inseam is going to be too long for me. This will be my first raw denim, so I was just wondering if I need to soak N&F or something before getting them hemmed so they don't get jacked up over time. Also, is there anything in particular I should look out for when looking for a tailor to hem them? And what do I need to have in mind when getting them hemmed?
Yes you will need to get them hemmed, certain stores will hem them for free, or some will hem with chain stitching for around 25 bucks. I would try out the weird guy fit if you are 5'5, tapered jeans look better on shorter people, and they have more room in the thigh, and have shorter inseams. I'm 5'7 and don't have to hem WG, but there is no way not to hem SG.
