    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.

    I think they look great stacked. Give it some time and I think you'll really start to like the look

    how's the denim on these jeans?

    are they going to shrink or does Levis sanforize their rigid denim?

    Don't cuff, wear them as the designer intended them to lay.

    The denim is really nice. Has a good indigo color and a bit of slubbiness to it. I'm pretty sure all their rigid denim is sanforized.

    *btw, I did an accurate measure with a tape and the inseam on a 32 length is actually 38"

    I know this is premium denim compared to "plebeian" denim, but what is the fit of the stacked skinnys(skinnies?) compared to the 514? I have a pair of 514s, but i am looking for a raw equivalent. Also, how true to size are the skinnys?
