Before your jeans go under the knife you’ll want to make sure the shoes you measure with are the shoes you’re planning to pair with the jeans (or at the least, a similar heel/lack of heel). This will take the guess work out of figuring out the measurement you’ll be happiest with.

When you take in your jeans to get hemmed (for instance, via our Denim Therapy expert hemming service!) be sure to bring a pair of shoes with you to wear when getting measured.

We think you probably don’t need much persuading when it comes to buying a perfect pair of jeans, but buying two pairs? These days people’s purse strings are tighter than ever, but here’s why it might not be such a bad idea to stock up when you find “the one”:
“When you find a pair of jeans you love, buy two.
Tailor one to wear with flats, and keep the other long enoguh to wear with heels. Here’s why: With heels, your jeans’ hem should just skim the floor—this elongates your legs. But if you wear that same pair with flats, you’ll end up stepping on (and tearing up) the bottoms, and the look will be more schlumpy than chic.” (Via LuckyMag).
We have only two things to say, and we’ll leave the decision making to you. First, you could also cuff your jeans when you wear them with flats. Everyone knows the perfect cuff can be as noteworthy as an accessory on its own. Secondly, if you do tear the hems up, you know where to go for your expert denim repair!
Wear your jeans, if only around the house, before you have them hemmed. It’s important to see how much they’ll be bunching up around the waist/behind the knees before you hem them too short! And remember, if you’re in a hemming-pinch, Denim Therapy offers professional hemming services. Need additional help with your hem length? Check out our hem-length guide.
