Ok, we dug deep!  Here are some really cool (& unheard) ideas for taking care of your jeans.

“If you don’t have time to try on jeans in the store, try the Neck Method: You can determine your size by placing the waistline of the jeans around the diameter of your neck. If the waistline of the pant comfortably meets at back of your neck, then the jeans will fit.”— Sarah Ahmed, C

When getting jeans shortened, always ask your tailor to reattach the original hem.

It may cost extra, but it’s worth it.  *I’ve also seen a how-to on Pinterest for this one!


Fold jeans like a pro: Lay jeans on a flat surface, fold in half from left to right. Grab the stacked jean legs and fold them in half so the hem of the jeans lines up with the waistband. Fold the jeans in half one more time.


Freeze jeans inside a plastic bag for two days to zap odor without running them through the washing machine.
