What is your personal gripe with jeans shopping?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm curious what issues people have with shopping for jeans. Is it fit, price, selection, style, etc? For me, if it fits my waist, it's too tight on my thighs and butt. (I'm little in the middle but I got much back). I'm curious what your personal pain points are when shopping for jeans!

When it comes to online shopoing my biggest gripe is that the product doesn't match the photos. Diesel are bastards for doing this!
Grest topic and welcome!

My primary concern/gripe is length. In stores, I usually find that it is selection, usually stores have a limited variety and usually just trendier washes/styles, not as many classic washes or cuts.

Though I do all my denim shopping online these days, my biggest gripe (as both a buyer and seller) is inconsistency in sizing. Without precise measurements, sizing is pretty much a crapshoot, which is why I came up with the numerical sizing formulas that take brand associations out of the equation ("I'm a tts 29 in 7FAM but a tts 30 in Paige"--but how can two different sizes both be true "fit" sizes? It's much easier to use numbers only and just say that, yes, a lot of the time, older Paige runs smaller than your numerical reference size.)

When denim isn't pre-shrunk! Hate finding that "perfect" fit then ruining it with a single wash.

I agree with Phukette on the product and image match. I am afraid of getting something totally different as what's described on the website. So to me product description has to be precise and correct in order for me to get convinced on buying.

Another gripe I have is the way some (amateur) sellers try to describe inseams..."I'm 5'4 and these fit me perfectly!" Newsflash: People have different leg lengths even at the same height. If I tried to pull that, saying that I'm 5'6 and they are perfect with flats, I'd be thrown off Ebay after too many SNAD claims, because I've met maybe one person my height with an inseam shorter than mine. (Most people my height need at least 2 more inches in the inseam) Such sellers act surprised when I point this out and ask for an inseam measurement.

It happens to me a lot that the colour doesn't match with the colour on the image and the lenght. But I've been a fan of Levi's jeans for years and now I know exactly my size. So most of the time the size is right when I buy jeans online. And for the webshop where I usually purchase my jeans I almost always find discount codes online on this site - also for free shipping so when I have to send everything back, it won't cost me anything. I actually never order anything online without free shopping, it happens to often that I have to send the whole package back :(
