    What are some terms that one should know in order to get what you want done correctly?

    I've had such bad luck with tailoring jeans over multiple tailors. Take a shoddy pair you don't cherish much first and see how they do.

    Nordstrom 18 dollars to put the original hem back on. That's where I tailor my jeans and I like it.

    nordstrom's tailors are generally pretty good with suits and such; i'd imagine they do comparable work with jeans
