My current favorite jeans are thrifted ($5.50), they are a good strong denim, they are the pERFECT LENGTH, I altered them from a low/medium rise to a realLY high rise, plus three darts, one on both the sides and the back. You can get these things for cheap if you have a good eye in thrift stores and arr handy with a needle!
