    So i picked up the Skinny Stacked Levis Capital E in a 32 inseam, which actually measures to about 36"

    i normally cuff my jeans to have no break on the shoe, but I thought I'd try something different with these and keep them long, but do they look *too* long, to where I should hem them to a true 32" inseam?

    They are meant to be kept long, and bunched up ('stacked') at the bottoms on top of your shoe like that.

    They look good, but I wouldn't cuff 'em.

    I think they are lookin good. The cuff is just the right size. What did those jeans run you? Where did you pick them up at?

    cuffs are about .75"...cost $138 from the Levi's store in LA. I really dig the extra tall belt loops as some of my belts (like the one I am wearing) barely fit into standard jean beltloops.

    a hair over 2". It's a 1940s tooled belt with the original buckle and paloma cross pattern studding around it. I can barely get it into my Nudies and it won't fit at all in APC or Julian Red.

    I think they look awesome as you have them, too. Bunching looks very different on skinny jeans, I don't think it looks as good on more relaxed jeans, maybe there's too much fabric. That's a look I'd love to pull off, but these damn thighs just won't allow it.

    Good look but I'm not sure I'd cuff them if I wanted them to stay this long. Come to think of it my APC are cuffed and unaltered and I like the look. I'm assuming your new jeans will get some creases and look slightly less bunched in a few days so keep them like that.

    do they come that long because they're supposed to shrink to a smaller leg? I need to find me a pair of looooooong jeans without paying the price for dior. my APCs are just barely long enough, but when I bought them I was hoping they'd stack a little bit more.

    Get Smart, the small cuff with the wrinkled bottom looks great, IMO.
