    I have a pair of jeans that I picked up from Banana Republic for $30 on sale, but they fit a tad too long. It's the same length I usually get, 34, but these seem to be much longer than that (they are a relaxed fit, so maybe that's why they run a bit longer?). They are super soft and comfortable, so I would like to keep them if I can get them hemmed relatively cheaply.

    Any ideas if this can be done and how much the cost would be?

    I have mine done with the tricky hem, and it's usually about $12 per pair, $7 without the tricky hem.

    just make sure you go to an actual tailor, not someone who occasionally does stuff
