    Perhaps. It's been my understanding that KMWs don't shrink a whole lot; less than an inch in length. But since I'm a 32 inseam, even that one inch of shrinkage would probably make a 32 inseam too short for me. That was my rationale when sizing up, anyway.

    I should also mention I haven't seen a 33/32 1980 on any of the sites that carry KMW, which is another reason why I just went with the 33/34. Sizing down in the waist wasn't a very viable option either, since I don't like to cut the circulation off in my balls in the name of JAWNZ.

    I understand why people don't like the cuff, but it can be your friend. Maybe reconsider? Would solve your problem very easily.

    Does anyone have a pair of 36/34 Levi's Capital E Hesher bootcut jeans? I am looking for the exact measurements of this pair because I'm going to order a pair online.

    Thanks!

    That's pretty dope, but why would you spend $50 (more if you have to ship them, etc) to do that? If you didn't like the zip in the first place, imo copping the jeans period was a bad decision...

    Yeah, I think the guy on the phone said a lot of people just pay for three buttons since zipper jeans already have a button at the top. So that's about 40 bucks with shipping....I didn't fully realize my hatred for zipper jeans until they broke and my local place could not get the new zipper to stay up.

    Hey guys i am looking for a dark pair of denim.....not sure if i want to jump into the whole raw denim scene just yet.... but i wouldn't mind....

    can you please recommend me a pair of DARK RINSE wash jeans or similar to that

    My only requirement is to have a 9" leg opening.........

    Thanks in Advance!


    Edit: sorry about that looking for size 31 and a straight leg style jean

    Edit: also i just want plain pockets and nothing too fancy just a plain pair of dark jeans for dressing up... i am looking for something that looks like the APC Rescues with a bigger leg opening and maybe darker, simple style......thanks for the suggestion guys, keep them coming

    ^ We can't really recommend anything based on just a leg opening unless you also give us a size.

    ^^I would recommend the Rag & Bone RB11 (I'm pretty sure the leg opening on a 31 is 9"). I believe shopfarinellis carries these in the lightweight streaky denim, which is perfect for summer.

    If you hem, don't take much off, but I would say don't hem and embrace the CUFF! EMBRACE THE BEAUTIFUL CUFF!

    Anyone own the H&M sliq raw denim? I just picked up a pair. I am debating wether to soak or just wear them.
