I have bought a pair of tellason ladbroke grove jeans, tried them on and thought they would be fine when rolled up but now think they are maybe 1-2 inchs too long, would taking them to a tailor be wise, had my first thing tailored at a turkish place and they did a fantastic job but am not sure because they are selvedge and unwashed or worn

Give them a quick dunk in the bath, see how much they lose in the length then decide

son of a stag off brick lane did a great job chainstitching some LVC for me if you decide they're too long, think it was £20

slim jeans are for fag-gots

Shane, those Lee 101s look decent, you know how they size / if they stretch much or at all?

Cheers. I would've had a look at those Jigsaws, but the smallest they do is a 30 waist (and that's out of stock) and I'm generally a 28 or 29 (which is why the Lee look a good bet)

I find Lee 101 fit big and any stretching comes back in after a wash

Mill my idea of slim jeans isn't calf hugging to be honest, when I think 'slim' I just think fitted in the seat and the thighs. I think Lee 101 riders are generally like that, normally hae about 7.5" leg opening which is ideal (for a 32 waist). You can get slim / straight & slim / tapered - whatever you fancy really.
Not sure I believe that anthropologist - Orange label Levis for example in the early 60s were very slim, with a very small leg opening. Things ebb and flow.
