When it comes to choosing perfect jeans, sometimes there’s just no real substitute for trying on several different pairs until you find the right one. However, there are a few tricks you can employ the next time you go shopping that might just assist in narrowing down your search.
First, you should probably already have a general idea of what size your waistline is. You can do what most people end up doing at some point in their lives to achieve this: go to stores and try some pants on. This process helps so that, in the future, whenever you need to buy jeans, you will have a good understanding of what works for you.
What happens if you have a size that you like, but there are slight changes in the manufacturing process or design process that might make a size 36 men’s at one store actually a size 34 at another? Well, here are 3 easy tricks that might help you the next time you go shopping.
Step 1: Using Your Arm For Size: The trick is to take your elbow and hand, make a fist, then slide it into the top of the jeans with the clasp closed shut. If your elbow and hand fit with ease, then the jeans might be a good size for you. If your arm is too loose inside or too tight inside this gap, chances are that the jeans might not be the right fit.
Step 2: Measuring With Your Neck: To do this, button up the jeans then use the waist to wrap them around your neck. If the material overlaps too much it might be too big for you. If the material doesn’t touch at all, then it might be too small.
Step 3: Measuring The Hips With Your Shoulders: Another method you could employ in your search for the perfect pair of jeans is to measure the waist against your shoulders. If the waistline on the jeans is roughly the same as the length of your shoulders, it should fit pretty well. If it’s smaller or larger, this will probably indicate that the jeans will either be too loose or too tight.
All in all these tips should assist you the next time you go to buy a pair of jeans, and quite possibly might even save you some time shopping!
