Pants Annoy Me

One of the things that I absolutely cannot stand are pants that are hemmed incorrectly.  Maybe I'm just picky, or maybe it's because I used to work at a tailoring store, but pants that are hemmed incorrectly are the bane of my existence. If I took the amount of time I spent staring at pant hems (hot spots include the library, subway, restaurants, and the mall) I could probably knit a blanket for every homeless person there is in Canada. 

 Top 4 Pant Peeves
  1. Jeans that are hemmed with the wrong color thread
  2. Jeans that are hemmed using the invisible stitch (What would posess you to do this? Have you ever bought jeans that were hemmed using the invisible stitch?)
  3. People who don't even bother hemming their jeans and just folds the excess fabric under. (That's the same method of how a kid cleans up their room, out of sight, out of mind.)
  4. When suit pants are too long/short (I know you young boys like to wear your pants down low and have it all baggy like you just came out of a rap video, but all it makes me want to do is cut off the excess fabric and hang myself with it)

All 4 of these pant hem lengths are acceptable for suit pants though I personally find No Break absolutely horrendous. They're short enough as it is, by the time you sit down for lunch they magically become capris.
