    Where can I get a REALLY cheap pair of jeans? Under £10. They don't have to look nice, I just want to turn them into shorts.

    Cheapest possible, thanks!

    You will have to endure the hell that is known as shopping at Primark.

    I love clothes, but not so much as to have them slave laboured over.

    Charity shops are a good bet, although the fits are never usually flattering!

    Or eBay, but you've gotta be careful with all the measurements and stuff! =/

    Tesco or Penneys/Primark would probably be your best bet.

    I have no know how tbh xD I just saw someone on lookbook who'd just chopped off the bottom of his jeans with scissors, to make them into shorts. No sewing or anything involved haha :yes:

    Meh, they're just paying the going rate, you can't really blame them. If they didn't, the families would be homeless.

    kk, thanks, although I think I'll buy them from a shop (not a charity shop) to get the right cut.


    Thanks guys, I'll try and rep you all now.

    Oh I know what you mean, I've seen quite a few guys on lookbook who've done that. My advice is to rip them NOT cut them, as cutting will leave a jagged but essentially straight edge and will look rubbish.

    My advice, try ripping the bottom of them first to get a feel for how they look when ripped, that way you're not screwed if it doesn't look good because you'll need to cut them off at the right length anyway :yep:

    I am afraid I have to second this.
    Otherwise: 1) Tesco 2) Asda
    and also, go look through some stuff on sale! If it doesn't have to fit immaculately because you are turning them into shorts this will be brilliant, you can pick up the flares that nobody wants (that would make brilliant shorts)

    good luck!
