Seeing as how lots of people think the type of jeans we wear on styleforum are girl jeans, stacking makes it distinguishable from female jeans. I don't see any girls stacking, do you?

I make my imaginary girlfriend stack her jeans.

I see girls wearing (dark) jeans with stacking all the time. Hell, even my female Signals and Systems professor stacks her denim. Girls with stacking and ballerina flats is way hot.

So...girl jeans, but longer? That's more or less what you've said.

Stack. I'm 5'9" and wear 34L, meaning I get 2-3 breaks. I don't think having a stack the size of jesus is a beneficial thing, but showing off your socks whenever you sit down is definitely not steezy. No need for a 5'2" guy to seek out a 40" inseam, but there is also no reason for a 5'9" guy to wear a 32" (which would be my "no break" inseam while wearing boots) And it is kind of true about girl jeans, I know quite a few girls who are about the same size as me (as in, 5'7-5'10" and probably between 120-130lbs) who complain about not being able to find jeans in their size. I keep telling them that they need to hit up some Naked and Famous or Nudie but they are all afraid of spending that much on jeans, especially dry ones. *sigh* I fight the good fight, even though I lose.

Have you gentlemen forgotten your ABCs?

A always, B be, C cuffing. Always be cuffing.

I'm 5'9" with relatively long legs, and I find that 32.5" provides a normal "jean break" (i.e., about 1.5" more than my inseam on proper wool pants), which I prefer for wider hemmed jeans worn with boots. For my slimmer jeans worn with Chucks or sleek dress shoes, I prefer a 33-34" inseam for more stacking. Anything more than that looks very goofy on me.

No stacks for me. I often wear wider hem pants, and stacking isnt much of an option, but imo it can look rather sloppy and dated on slimmer hems aswell. A "little" is ok though.

women around here who wear dark blue denim do stack might not be dry denim though. funny thing is i rarely see any guys in dry denim or with stacks.

I was wearing some diors the other day and thought that I looked stupid at 5'10" and 36-37 inseam. I am pretty sure I'm hemming them to 34 soon.

I don't like the look on myself, so don't stack. But I wear slim (514) not skinny (511) jeans and usually with boots.

I have BSP's in which have an 8.25 leg opening. I'm only 5'8 and usually have a 30 inseam. They are not super tight on me and the leg opening isn't small enough for a ton of stacking. I think I'm going to get them hemmed to a 33.5. What do you think?

I like stacking my jeans. IMO I think cuffing looks ugly.

I like the stacks but not over excessive...
