Just bought a pair of Moschino medium wash jeans. Theyre cut pretty slim (very similar to dress pants) and because theyre darker, I can wear them dressier to dinner and stuff. Anyway, Ill probably only wear these with shoes or loafers, so I was wondering how long they should be. should I have them hemmed like dress pants, or leave them a bit longer with a slight break because theyre still jeans (even though theyre dressier). Thanks ahead of time!

Take them to a tailor that specializes in denim, and they will recommend the proper length.

If you want to wear them in lieu of dress pants, the must fit like dress pants. Do not make them cut longer, just take them to a tailor who knows what he or she is doing, and have them altered there.

Be weary of over-compensating with your jeans, because it might (read: will) look odd.
