View Full Version : Length Help!
14th December 2005, 18:24
I am wanting to get some BO's and the only deal i have found is a 28x34 but i usually wear jeans in a 28x30. I was wanting to hem the jeans but then I was scared the shrinkage is going to make it too short? Anyone have any suggestions?

You could hem them to like a 31 length, so when you wash them they will shrink to the right size. I doubt they would shrink a whole inch or more; however, if that's a possiblity, hem them to a 32 length.

definitely be careful about length...i just got a pair of Slim Jim from a used clothing store, and they're marked 34 inch length, but they definitely fit like a 30 inch inseam.....i'm guessing the guy that had them before me washed them really hot or something, b/c the waist is 31 but fits more like a 30.
so yeah, i'd make sure you leave room for shrinkage, and be careful when you do wash them to stretch out the legs to keep them from losing too much length.
thought about trying roll-ups? i used to hate them, but they look so good with nudies...

I just bought a pair of Olas in a 32 inseam. My measured inseam is preferably 29. I'm considering having them hemmed to a 30 inseam. I own a pair of RRDS and I sport the cuffs, so I don't want to do the same thing with my Olas. If I hem them to a 30 inseam, you guys think I will be alright after the first wash? Anybody had any experience with this?

to 180-184 cm I always would buy 34 length, all above a 36 length. they really shrink like hell in length.
