I agree, jeans don't tailor well. I did take a few docker type denim pants in for altering and felt like it was a waste of $14/pr. They just didn't look "right". They fit, but the look was weird. Now my business casual slacks worked out great so I guess it depends upon the cut/fabric.

I agree, consignment stores and thrift stores have really increased my wardrobe while loosing weight. I spent my money on quality slacks for work but for casual pants I shop at a local thrift store. Jeans were never more than $4.99 pr and I found several pairs over the months to keep me happy like Lee, Levi', Tummy Tuck and even found some Lucky jeans (not cheap around my part of town) there.

When I hit my goal weight (9.6lbs to go) and maintain it for 6 months, I fully intend to go to the mall and throw down some serious cash on a great fitting pair of jeans. Maybe even one of those "custom' places that will make them to your actual measurements.

Call a local tailor in your area and ask them (I've never had this done before).

But if you want to buy some really good cheap jeans, you can try certain thrift stores...I know, I know they are used clothing, but you'd be surprise in the jeans section of the store that most of the jeans had never been worn before. 4 of my jeans still had the old department store tags on them (so whoever bought them, never wore them and donated them to the thrift store). You'd be surprised, trust me!
