don't hem them. Hemmed jeans look bad.... unless you have like 27" legs and a 30" hem is giving you a bit of stacking.

Also, it wouldn't cost much. 10 bucks?

Don't hem them? He is saying he normally buys jeans in a 30 inseam. If he likes a 30 inseam and a jean comes in a 34 (or god forbid, 38) then why shouldn't he hem them?

It all depends on your actual inseam. Some people have long legs some short, but hemming them should cost you some where in the realm of 2-3 hundred dollars.

So hem them then. I just think most people who hem their jeans him way too much, but I shouldn't judge what you are doing since I don't know.

Anyway, hemming is a relatively painless operation that can be done at any alteration place for a few bucks.

Way to miss the joke, guys.

And nothing looks more terrible than an inseam two inches too long!

Why would hemming jeans make them look any different than when they came from the factory?... besides being shorter. I can understand chain stitching but the vast majority of jeans don't have that.
