    I have always been a supporter of the stack but I think I may be changing my ways. I am just getting sick of the stacked look....a little bit is okay but when inseams are 34-36" long its a bit much. Anyone else havin this prob.?

    I am actually contemplating hemming my denim, not to a point where they dont stack at all but maybe just a bit less.. basically came to the realization when I was trying on my new NDG that arrived today and decided to roll the legs under to see what they'd look like a bit shorter. I am so afraid of not liking them after they're hemmed though, its a hard decision.

    I like the way it looks, but to each his own.

    stacking looks stupid. hem a pair of jeans you don't like or buy something cheap in a smaller length and see if you like it.

    Cuff>Stack IMO but if I'm not going to cuff, I'd just get the right inseam.

    I'm 6ft and usually a 32 length, but if I want a little bit of stack I go with 34.

    Fit pics? A 38-40" inseam doesn't seem all that bad.

    Stacking on skinny jeans, always. No stacking looks gay as fuck with tight jeans, and a clean break on regular jeans makes you look like you're wearing highwaters when you sit down. I avoid dealing with the connundrum of wide hems by only buying skinny jeans.

    +1, stacking gives that distinguishable look that separates it from girls' jeans. It adds some masculine character.

    I'd only stack on skinny jeans too. It looks better on tapered leg jeans.

    Stacking is what makes them not girl jeans? Wow.
