    I don't like the ultra high button stance. Or the snap buttons.

    Need some advice...

    what are the alternatives to Dockers that are washable, no ironing, and comfortable that are more on the dressy side?

    thx,
    cindy

    I am about to have a wallet blowout in my back pocket, and someone suggested to me that I put some clear nail polish on the inside of the pocket to reinforce it and keep it from blowing out. Has anyone ever heard of doing this/ tried it? It seems like it should work, but I want to check around before I put nail polish on a pair of $160 jeans.

    If you're thinking about reinforcing your pocket, you should look at iron-on cloth patches. They work wonders.

    I tried that jacket on at Barneys Co-Op and I don't remember much about it. I'm not sure if it had zippers or not. I believe the fit was decent, but I prefer things to have zippers than snaps.

    My suggestion: call one of the Steven Alan shops. I've found the SA's there to be helpful and they should answer any questions.

    How can I iron a patch on inside of my back pocket?

    You don't. They're sticky.

    ahhh, thanks guys.
    You can either leave them in their stick state or stick them inside and iron over the pocket. All you're looking for is a little bit of heat to set it.

    Find some scrap denim and sew it in. The only way to repair denim is with more denim.

    I generally love Steven Alan stuff but I wasn't a huge fan of that jacket. Too stiff, and I'd prefer button-through buttons or a zip.

    Thinking about getting some Corpus jeans. How does Corpus slim straight fit? If my true waist is 34-35 (wear 33 in NS but mostly 34) - should I go for 34?

    I really like the look of the Crate Dobbs fit. I am just apprehensive about the pockets, i keep my hands in my pockets 87% of the time. Will i be able to fit my hands into the pocket up to my wrists? I realize to some something like this might seem trivial, but because this would be my first large denim purchase its kind of a big deal.

    Also, the only affiliate which carries Crate is out. Are there any other resources for someone looking to buy crate? I've checked back at their website periodically and unless there is some trick to getting beyond the title screen there is nothing there.

    thx

    How drastic would it be ...

    I've been dying to find a pair of selvage RB11's. I've found a 32x34, which are too long for me. What if I bought them and gave them a serious hem job? Would that fuck up the cut?
