Thanks neph93!

Now I need some cuffing advice from you guys. They're hemmed to a good length for just a single cuff which is what I was after. Do you like to iron them to help them stay in place? or any other tricks?

@Trc22 I don't iron cuffs as I have found from experience that it accelerates wear on the crease lines. I now simply fold the cuffs in place when I wear them and unfold the cuffs when not wearing them. I find the exact position of the cuffs changes ever so slightly which negates wear on a single cuff fold line.

What @den1mhead said. Exactly what I do, and I've had now issue with wear on cuffs. I would also advise that the hem of the cuff sits just an inch or so above the laces of laced footwear, just to minimise the risk of additional friction.

You might also notice prolonged (minimal) shrinkage in length over multiple washes, so consider that when chuffing.

Thanks guys! After just two days of wear these are breaking in so nicely, and are amazingly comfy. I can tell they’re only going to get better.

Any cuffing will leave a mark/stress/holes on the fold....

Hmmm... better no cuffs in the future!?

No cuffs... different look, but seems to work too?

Looks very good. Just the right amount of stacking.

Sorry if this has been discussed before, but my size 36” 634’s have developed a lot of excess material along the outside edge of the thighs.  These ‘wings’ have been getting gradually worse this past year to the point now where I am no longer wearing them because of the way they look.  Just wondered if this was common, if they could be altered at all or if not then is there a better cut that would suit my frame more?
Current measurements: waist:18”, front rise:11”, back rise:16”, leg opening (level with crutch seam):13 3/4”, leg width at the knee:10”, hem:9 1/4”.   Any advice much appreciated.

They do look a little big on you. I wouldn’t say this was a common issue. All denim stretches with use but we’re talking an inch or so in the waist, half an inch in the thigh etc. I’d suggest this was a combination of stretch and weightloss. Have you lost weight?

I suggest you have a look at the 888 or 666 cuts. The 888 is regular fitting but tapered. The 666 is slim and straight.

neph93 - Many thanks for the advice, yes I have lost some weight recently.  Do you think the jeans would recover, if I gave them a hot wash, or is this amount of stretch permanent once it happens?  I’m assuming having the having the excess material removed and the seams re sewn would either not be possible or just too costly? Thanks again for the help.

I've had my 634s taken in for precisely that reason,and it worked out great,only cost $50. First time I neglected to tell them which seam to take up the slack from and they removed the selvedge side. A nice hot wash will help,and they should not stretch out as much as they had previously,as you are not putting as much pressure on the denim,because you've lost weight.

Jett129 - That’s great news, I don’t mind paying if it means I will wear them again.  Just to confirm, is the seam on the inside or the outside of the leg unpicked? Also, could any tailor do the work or does it need to go to a heavy denim specialist?
