Sorry to come atch'yall with a total noob question, but here is my quandry:
I find myself having to wear chinos and trousers more often these days. I prefer a half-break and relatively slim leg opening. My footwear collection consists mostly of side-zip boots. Whenever I sit down, I tend to cross and uncross my legs, and the hems of my pants rise up above the opening of my boots. When I stand up, the trouser hems sometimes fail to fall back into place neatly around the shaft of the boots, sometimes sitting partially on top of or inside of them.
Is there a way around this? I suppose I could wear trousers with a wider hem, but my boots are, for the most part, relatively sleek. Do I just need to suck it up and wear lace-up shoes instead of boots?
Thanks in advance for any insight and advice. I'm still getting used to not being able to wear raw denim every day of the week.
Have you tried cuffing your trousers instead of plain hemming them? I find that the additional weight of a cuff helps them fall back more easily in place.
