They should also not be skinny fit jeans. Boot fit or straight fit jeans would be best.
Jack Torrance Axe

The axe you use should have a long handle if you want to be movie accurate. While you could use a real axe we would suggest, for safety, that you use one of the many replica prop axes that are available.
