    They can but I like jean stacking, I don't like the "MC Casual" hemmed jean look.

    I see. Well, in that case, I think your stacking goes up too much. It's almost indistinguishable from the regular knee folds. I'm not sure what's considered the right amount of stacking in MC, but in my uneducated opinion it doesn't look right. I'd still get them hemmed a little bit. Overall, your fits are great, though!

    Fair enough, I may get them hemmed 1" and tapered a little to compensate.

    Hehe... well, it was those or light blue. I ran out of pastel colored socks. Doing laundry today! I had to walk all day, so I dared not go sans socks. (my ankles are closer to being light blue thank pink. as a redhead, not only can't I tan, but apparently I can't even donate my sperm)

    Stacking looks good to me; as long as the jeans have a small leg opening, it looks intentional, or the way they were meant to be worn, no?

    (Also: wat jeans?)

    Sweet, was just about to order a boatload of zara pants, now that they opened their web store. Their waxed jeans look nice as well.

    Their waxed jeans are not nearly as nice as they were 2-3 years ago. They're a lot thinner and they don't taper. The tapering is the biggest thing, so find a tailor who can work with them and you'll be okay.

    Hm...good to know. No one ever seems to provide measurements. Slimming would cost about $20 a pair, bringing the total to $100. Still might order a test pair.

    I bought two jeans (one lemon yellow, another purple) in Zara for $12 each on sale. Probably the best value pants I ever found in stores. The fit is excellent.

    Eason you should do what I do and push the stacks more down to the shoe. Looks much better that way.

    I maybe missing something here, but what is the idea of stacking(rumpling excess fabric), is it a fashion thing? Don't people buy them in the correct length?

    this is one of those things that I just don't get, sorry. it must be a generational thing, or I am just not hip enough.

    I've seen a few of our middle school students with this look on Sundays when they don't have to wear uniform. To me it looks like their pants are too long. It's better than sagging, which I thought was an awful fashion.
