First of all, can we hem skinny jeans or would it look weird?
and second, would it look weird if I hem these particular pair of jeans because if you look at the wash there is a slight fading detail?







TIA

How high would you hem them? To the ankle would look fine to me, I've done that before.

it's too long for me so I have to hem it to around my ankles. it's not alot but I was wondering if the coloring/fading would look too "off"

the wash has fading but it's nothing very prominent so i don't think it will look 'off' if you hem it up. if it helps, you could have the tailor shorten it but reattach the original hem so the jeans don't look obviously altered.

I've hemmed jeans very similar to that. I had to take up the jeans a fair bit though because I'm a real shortie :P What I did was ask the tailor to taper the jeans to keep the original shape (yup that gives you a hint how long those jeans were). Worked out very well! Enjoy your jeans...
