    Hi, My mom just purchased a pair of Authentic Dsquared Whykiki Aloha jeans in Italy for me that fit great around the waist, but the inseam is 1-2" short. Is it possible to just add denim to the end of the jeans???. I would then roll the hem of the jeans back up to hide the stitching. Would it be possible to do this???. I don't know if this sounds insane, but was just curious if it was an option???.

    Wait, you want to lengthen your jeans so you can cuff them?

    Nope, not really possible. The best that you can do is to undo the hem completely, or undo it completely, and then just fold it up once to make a very short hem. You'll get about 1 or 1/2 inches with the former and latter, respectively.

    Just tuck your thumbs inside the waistband on both hips and pull downwards gently until your cuffs brush the top of your shoes. Then remove your thumbs. With a cigar-cutter. Cauterize with gunpowder. Bandage. Repeat.
