    Do not hem those. Do not. If you are going to hem them, sell them instead, at least then someone else can use them. If you hem them you will ruin them and then you'll end up wanting to sell them in a few months anyway but they'll be ruined. Then I'll open up a thread in B&S titled "Geller Plum Jeans" and see that you hemmed them and be forced to come to wherever that snowy locale might be and decapitate you.

    If you trade them for the gradients, same thing applies there.

    I almost had an aneurysm recently opening a thread in B&S where someone was selling his Dauphins which had been hemmed to a 30 inseam. Fuck. You.

    It always annoys me when people do that. I'm like [​IMG] I would totally have bought those if you hadn't maimed them; if you were going to do that, best be sure you want to KEEP them!

    Same thing with Diors. Like why are you buying Diors if you want them short hemmed.

    should I kop...

    some new footwear (suede bucks)

    or a +j military jacket?

    Right now my footwear is white vans and ll bean boots and my outerwear consists of an ll bean wool overshirt, an oversized gap utility jacket, and my snowboarding jacket which I rarely wear casually.

    I considered hemming because I'm like a 29-30 inseam and they look really silly stacked 35", but I'll probably either trade or sell.

    Don't buy suede bucks, I already told you about that. That shit is going to date so rapidly. +J sounds like a better option, but on the other hand have you considered not buying a military jacket? What about a cool blazer or something? I just don't like how shapeless most military jackets are.

    eh, I don't see myself wearing a blazer that often though and I'm trying to limit my purchases to stuff that I'm going to wear more than once a week, at least. The only thing with buying more outerwear is that it is almost the time of year where I won't be wearing it anyway (how heavy is the +j military jacket?). If you don't like bucks, what kind of footwear do you like? For reference I'm a big fan of the kvc/scott/mf aesthetic.

    this right here. Don't be a fucker and screw up your shit xM. I am the same inseam wise. I just go with the stacks, tuck, cuff, or cuff inward.

    For something closer to the mf look, I Rachel Comey oxfords, like the Derringer or Mateba. Maybe Paul Smith if you can find something you like. What would you be wearing your shoes with?

    Thanks for the advice guys, even if it was needlessly hostile.
