I don't know about anyone else out there in personal style land, but being tall and somewhat slender, I have the hardest time finding cute quality jeans that hit my ankle and coats/jackets/long sleeved shirts that hit my wrist. I've had this problem since I started high school and it hasn't gotten that much easier in my wonder years. I have extremely long arms (27 inches to be exact) and a 36 inch inseam (mama long legs is one of my many monikers). That being said, imagine my delight when I came across a website called Make Your Own Jeans. *

Make Your Own Jeans allows you to customize your jeans from the rooter to the tooter. Whether you're sky high tall or prettily petite, Make Your Own Jeans tailor makes your jeans to fit you like a glove. The best thing about this company/website, is that they also deliver up custom made leather jackets. Can you freaking believe that!?! I cannot tell you how many times I have left a store disappointed because the cute leather jackets I eyed and tried didn't fit me right. Now with my discovery, I can have a jacket made to fit my long lean arms right to the wrist. I am squealing right now because I am so freaking happy, lol.

Another great thing (as if you need more) is the customization process itself. When customizing your jeans, you can choose a jegging fit, loose fit, bootcut fit, etc. You can choose premium or regular denim, there are loads of washes and whiskering effects to choose from and you can even have custom pocket embroidering, studs and other bells and whistles. You can even have a pair of your own jeans cloned! Seriously, if you live in the United States, Make your Own Jeans will pay the shipping costs to ship your jeans to them so they can make replica jeans! Just imagine the possibilities. I am so amped...can you tell, lol. I'm already designing my first leather jacket and planning on designing at least 5 pairs of jeans...a girl can never have too many pairs of jeans after all, lol. So whether you're tall, small anywhere else in the fit spectrum, check out Make Your Own'll be glad you did. I know I am :-)

Cool! I love the post...I had no idea you could custom make jeans!!! I gotta start! I love the jackets can also custom design jackets at this site
They have varsity jackets, work jackets, and some soft shell ones for skiing & stuff. I think I am going to start only wearing custom stuff :) Have a good one!
