I never had to taper any of my jeans before, only hem, but I would take extra measures in sending it to Selfedge or something. How loose is the thighs, maybe a hot soak will help, you heard anyone needing taper on Shearers since they are already really slim.

I've soaked them like three times already lol, the thigh is hopeless. I may just have really skinny thighs I'm not sure.

I just got a 30 because it was a trade, I'm happy with the way everything else fits except for the thighs haha. I'm a true 30 so maybe a 28 or 29 would have been better

Ohh ok, well just to let you know, Shearers are known to be roomier in the thighs and then tapered knee down.

How so? Sydney always models all the jeans perfectly, from the pic I can see that the thigh is roomier than other models. I always check all measurements of a pair, since I know exactly what I want, I usually have perfect fits.

@midnite these are just slightly too baggy on the thigh for my liking, because I'm a really skinny guy

They look pretty baggy all around, think you should go for a different pair tbh.

I had a deal on plndr so I decided to gamble on a pair of Mishka's raw selvage Alexei's. I think all inseams on Mishka denim is 34? For regular jeans I wear 30 so I was wondering what do I do. Should I get it hemmed? If so, to what length? I also couldn't find any info on whether it's sanforized or not so I can soak them. (I'm an amateur)

get it hemmed if you feel that it's too long. I'm pretty sure it's sanforized or it should say un-sanforized if it is. No need to soak. But hem about 1" longer than what you normally wear as most denim will shrink a little bit

Does getting it hemmed effect the quality or look?

I'm looking to pick up a new pair of raws as my Deep Indigos which I've had and loved have started to blow in the crotch and will be ushered into semi-retirement.

Deciding between the Japan Heritage or Indigo/Indigo in SkinnyGuy fits or the Skinny Straight Japan Blue 101 (Momotaro). Price range is about the same, but want something different from the Deep Indigo fade/feel.

Thoughts? Maybe something completely different? A pair of Momotaros perhaps?

how would it effect the quality? think about it ! If the pants are straight leg then no, it wont effect the look. If jeans are tapered the hem wont be as small but would still look pretty similar to being unhemed.

Does tapering just the inseam part of the jeans make it look weird?

I don't think you full understand how tapering works, you can't just make the leg opening smaller, in order to taper, they need to cut the line.

Yeah if it's only between those I would go with momos. If you aren't just limiting yourself to those then check out some
of the other brands for out there in the same price point. What kind of denim you looking for?
