Question of the Week: How to Keep Jeans Tucked Into Boots

Every winter I think about how annoying it is to keep jeans tucked into my boots, and despite efforts to tuck my jeans into my socks, they never really stay quite the way I want them to.

I always toy with the idea of crafting something stirrup-like, but never get around to it. This year I decided to search the web for some solutions to keep my jeans from bunching at my knees, and wow, I can't believe I didn't do this earlier. There are so many to choose from! I'll start with the most expensive and work my way down.
Stirrups ($25 + approx. $6-7 S&H)
These seem to be the most well-designed with two clips on each side. I'm not sure how much of a difference it actually makes, but it seems like they would provide some extra strength in keeping jeans down.

Jean Grabbers ($9.99 + $2.95 S&H)
Pink cameo, tiger stripe, floral. I'm not really a fan of any of the patterns, but I think they could get the job done.

Jean Straps ($9.99 + $2-3 S&H)
I've read a few reviews about these. They're apparently really comfortable, but the clamps only work if your jeans are thin. If your jeans are thicker, these might not be a good option, especially if you have to fold them up.

Pants Down ($8.00 + $2.00 S&H)
This Canadian eBay store sells pant clips in a variety of colors and patterns. Pants Down also accepts special requests and can customize your straps to be longer or shorter than the standard size.
Jodphur Pant Clips ($2.99 + $6.95 S&H)
These pant clips are from an equestrian supply store. These are the cheapest option, and from what I've read, it sounds like they work just as well as the others. The shipping cost is kind of high for such a small item, but you can always place an order with a friend or if you're a little behind on your gift giving, you can place an order for your friends.

If you're tried any of these or have other suggestions, please leave a comment!

Genius!! I was about to buy a shoe horn and attempt to tuck in my jeans every so often but this looks like a better alternative.

Hi Lani!!

I like to use what I have. So when I know I'm not going to take my boots off (at someone's house, etc), I wear socks over my jeans. Sure it sounds weird, but hey, it works =)
