    Just wondering if anyone knew how much it generally costs to get jeans tailored? I've got 2 pairs of jeans that are size 32 long and I need them shortened to 30 long. Any ideas?

    Most do it for about 10 bucks.

    the thing is, they might not look right at the end is what i noticed, but i could be wrong.

    as in the folding in all the way at the bottom.. i think some may just simply do a straight cut almost. i don't know.

    It really depends on who does it. My mom bought my some diesel jeans that were too long and I took them to a local dry cleaner.

    They did a good job, and the change wouldn't have been noticeable if they were able to get the same color stitch thread (the diesels have a thread that changes color as it goes down the leg). It only cost about $10.

    Too bad I gained 30 lbs and now they're tight. :(

    If you don't ask them to keep the original hem, they'll make one for you but it looks like absolute shit. Make sure to request the original hem.

    alright, what is the "hem"?

    because i asked a tailor to do this once, (shorten my jeans) and it looks like all they did was fold the fabric inside a little, take a gold/yellow thread (looked retarded) and sew in and out but that is NOT at all what the bottom of my jeans look like normally. They are faded and have more of a bending between the segments (little squares) letting you know this is where the jean ends. :hs:

    Truth.

    I took my Paper denims to One Hour Martinizing in Las Vegas and they quoted me $14 to hem my jeans with the original hem because of the yellow stitching on the bottom. I knocked them down to $12 and it came out perfect.

    When I bought my Sevens at Saks a few years back :ugh: they wanted $25 for the original hem and I said no thanks. Their tailor did a shitty job and I ended up returning them at a different location :ugh:
