I hate buying jeans, and I haven't bought a pair in over 3 years. Well as luck would have it, out of my 3 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs ripped in the seat from wear and tear.
Part of why I hate buying jeans is that I am petite, with muscular legs, and a little waist (size 0-2). Most jeans in my size fit me in the waist but then the thighs are uncomfortably snug. But if I buy them a size up, they're just too big in the waist but then fit in the thigh, but I'm not sure if they can get tailored in the waist and rear area (I am also cursed with a tiny butt).
Since I'm short (5'0'), I also have a hard time with the petite/ankle length. This less of an issue, but still annoying.
So where do you get your jeans?
