Have you seen this? Make Your Own Jeans

What is one of the hardest things to shop for? Bathing suits of course, but second to that is jeans! Imagine if you could have your own custom made pair without it costing an arm and a leg -- wouldn't that be fabulous? Well, now you can at Makeyourownjeans.com.

A number of years ago Levi's did this, but the options were very limited, but now on Makeyourownjeans.com you get so many options it is actually overwhelming. The jeans are made using 7 different measurements that you provide. You choose the type of denim, including options for stretch, weight, and color. You can also personalize them even more by choosing embroidery, buttons, rivets, pockets, patches, rips, washes, and thread color. Like I said, the number of choices is overwhelming.

And most of the jeans cost around $50!

I haven't ordered my own pair yet, but that is only because I have to do all the measuring stuff and I can't decide what I want. I will let you know what I think when I do order.

The only criticism is for the site itself. They desperately need the help of traciedesigns!

I am intrigued...Do post about your purchase!

Such karma! I can't believe that on the very day I was searching online for corduroy jeans in colors other than black and gray, you put this up on your blog. Not only can I get blue ones, but they'll be the best-fitting pair of cords I've ever owned. Now, to find a measuring tape...

Do you think if I sent them my old jeans (AKA best jeans ever) they could just deconstruct them and rebuild?

Looking forward to seeing how yours turn out!

Sara- I will duly report back as soon as I find my measuring tape.

Emily- Excellent! Let me know if you order.

Becky- They basically do exactly that because you provide the measurements based on pants you own. You can also send them all kinds of specific notes.

Wow. I just bought pants the other day, and they're at the tailor getting about 6" taken off. Whilst dropping them off, I couldn't help but think how unfair it is that men's pants come in a length size and not women's. We're supposed to be smarter--how come our pants sizes are so archaic?

Oh, and yes re: the design--they definitely need help in that department. But all is forgiven, because hello? Custom jeans??!
