Hi, I purchased two pairs at Macys the other day. I've never worn them before and have a question about how they are supposed to look on the bottom. Should they be completely straight with no slack or "excess" jean bunched up on the bottom??? (kinda like a leg warmer look) TIA

yes, they should fit tight all the way down to the ankle.
I can't find a pair of skinny jeans in any store.
I looked at macy's. What brand did you find?

They can be cut both ways. Google images of "skinny jean". I have grey ones that I wear bunchy with flats but if I put something on with a heel they look straiter (not a short leg thing just the way they are) I personally prefer to cuff the skinny jeans that are slouchy to make them shorter and thicken the ankle area. I don't cuff them up & out like farmer style. But reverese as if you were going to hem them.

If they bunch up then it's probably too long. You can try getting them hemmed.

I bought a pair at Macy's too. They're my favorite by Calvin Klein.

The bunching is a "style"

I found a great pair at Ann Taylor Loft awhile ago. They are popular, so hard to find. Check online and see if you can try them on in a nearby store.

Yeah, for some reason when she said "bunching" I was thinking a lot of bunching like leg warmers.

I'm short, so mine will always bunch

Beats walking on the hems of your jeans like I had to when flared bottoms were in style!
