Hi, I just bought a pair of H&M Sliq jeans. I want to know if they are raw or not. There look like the ones in this picture:
They came with a tag that says: "There are Two lessons you should learn about newborn jeans: 1. Dark denim might make a white sofa blue. 2. You can expect 5% shrinkage."
Alright so they a little bit long on the inseam (maybe 2" too long). I was wondering what would be the best way to "shrink" these jeans. And should I wash these regularly? ...
I think there should be a thread devoted to tailoring/alterations.
Anyway.... how much would tapering a pair of jeans generally cost?
Oh, and feel free to post some before and after pics of different alteration jobs to educate the public.
I have already shrunken 501XX that have excess material just below the bum/top of thighs. I also think the rise a bit high. How would I go about fixing this? Is there an tailor option that shorten rise (from the crotch), tighten thighs, and reduce butt fabric? Anyone know what needs to be done?

And a very good price! Where was that?
how often did you wear them? And how often did you wash them?
