    Are you supposed to tuck your jeans into your boots to show off, or is that only for girls?

    I went to Mervyn's "Going out of business" Sale and picked up a pair of 501 STF for $27. They only had 32x36. I need a 30x30. Will I be able to shrink it that much?

    How much can they shrink. Looks like I'll have to sell them.

    ^ They will shrink to your waist size. They won't in length though, but you can have them hemmed at any tailor/alteration shop.


    Won't be much of a deal when all is said and done though.

    Are jeans fairly easy to hem? I can get that done for free.

    Based on measurements from Crate, the leg opening on those should actually be 8.5".

    I just got a pair of 19cm MIJs that are 31w but they've quickly stretched to the point where I could easily take an inch off them and still be quite comfortable. So my question is this; are there certain methods to minimize future stretching in the waist or any simply fixes I might not know about? I know they'll be fine once I wash them and everything but that's a ways off. Thanks for your replies.

    Does anyone have experience with Cheap Monday Autobahns? One site has them 1 inch smaller than tagged on the waist and another has them being 3 inches bigger on the waist than what the tag says.

    So I've been wanting a pair of nice black skinny jeans that would be good with an Italien stlye pair of boots and/or Chucks.. I usually wear Levi 511's in a 30x30 but I would like somthing tighter around the legs with less baggage. I've been looking into possibly levi 510s probably in a 31x30(I dont want them quite skin tight).
    What do you guys suggest?
