    any where I have ever got jeans hemmed, they have been fucked up.

    I gave up on it. I was getting tired of wasting money.

    Local italian suit maker. He did my jeans for $13 even.

    Just make sure you tell them to not iron them (no press) or else they will for sure. I remember someone on sufu had a pair of jeans that he had hemmed, and they pressed a huge crease down each leg. Looked funny as hell, he was so pissed.

    what bottom thing? you mean like the yellow/orange thread that leaves like half an inch of denim at the bottom?

    That's like part of hemming denim, I'm pretty sure they'll put it there. Take in a shitty pair of jeans if you're that worried.

    Any decent place will cut off the bottom hem, take off the excess material and sew the hem back on.

    the eurohem?

    that's what good places do

    they hem the original hem back up onto the garment, then cut off the excess, then the old hem flaps over

    just be careful how much you take off. if you hem too much, when you go to wash the ankle will ride up too high, thus being ruined. happened to me, 150 down the drain

    You're much better off leaving it a bit longer. Also, I would recommend measuring it yourself, I have a feeling that if you went in and had them measure you they wouldn't compensate for inseam shrinkage.


    For instance, go in and just say "I want 3 inches taken off" or w/e

    well, when you factor in the one inch+ shrinkage of the inseam, he has a pair of denim that is hemmed like some suit pants. with no break.

    two different styles.

    OHHH...i thought you meant they hemmed them and then you washed and washed and washed...and they ended up at the sole. which would seem to be good for me.

    i guess they shrank an itch and you were an inch higher than what i thought you had.
