Shortened while keeping the original hem:

Not for me, unfortunately, but what a gift to give. Hopefully they fit.

The caps are pretty creased (even though the seller's statement about having been worn once looks spot on).  Doubt I can get those out, but from the last shape it looks like those lengthy caps would crease anyway.

Denimheads would caution to only chain-stitch denim hems. Especially when re-attaching the original hem.

But they weren't stain-stiched to begin with...

"reattaching" the original hem?

I personally find the chain stitch unnecessary, but I know/have spoken to "experts" who scoff at the idea of having a hem finished any other way. Never really asked opinions on jeans that didn't come with the original hem chain stitched...

It becomes more important (or necessary) with pre-washed/treated jeans, where the hem may have some fraying or discoloration that won't be consistent if you simply hem, fold and stitch the new length. On raw denim it's less of a big deal. However, my denim tailor "re-attaches" all "original hems" on every pair of denim they tailor. Basically they remove the bottom at the original fold/stitch and then restitch it to the bottom of newly hemmed jean.

I understand, and I like a chain stitch (there's a lot of chain stitching in the rest of the jeans), but in this case I wanted to keep the 'un-chain-stitched' original hem, to keep/get the nice wearing effect of the hem, like the jeans on the bottom in the pic below; the jeans on top have a new hem and don't age as nice.

Unless you are going to be using them for riding the knee patches are a bit ridiculous, no?

They're actually on the inside of the leg, inside thigh, which is even more ridiculous, imho.  Hence the self-loathing.
