Whoa. I see from your Buy & Sell post that these run really large. So please don't get those 34/30's. I think I'll buy your 32's if your measurements are accurate

Question is: did you kop? Second question is who actually buys these ultra-distressed items at full retail? Is there someone walking around Hollywood in these?
post #3246 of 21193
they are in my posession who buys at full retail? i don't know, my income doesn't allow for that privelege. i suspect wealthy LA types and possibly some japanese. heavy distressing is an OG ura-hara style and is still popular (e.g. Hysteric Glamour, NBHD, Fragment x Levi's, etc.)

i need to get some of my RRL jeans and chinos hemmed. do u guys recommend getting a euro hem or chain stitch? i was doing a little research, as i didnt know what either alteration was exactly. i understand what a euro hem is now (the cuff looks exactly the same after the hem), but still a little confused about a chain stitch... what do u guys do when you need alterations?
post #3248 of 21193
Chainstitching is popular on jeans because it enhances the roping effect. Google image it and you'll see what it is. Its when the hem fades like a rope. Anyway, a regular lock stitch can achieve the same effect. The chainstitch works because of the way the machine pulls on the fabric or some such techno mumbo jambo. Basically, if you can get a lock stitch machine to do the same thing, you'll get the same result. And to add more food for thought, eventually the lock stitch will develop some roping, but to what extent depends upon more factors than I can handle. So, in answer to your question. For chinos, it doesn't matter IMO. Get whatever the manufacturer put on it if you can. Otherwise, decide whether or not you actually want to hunt down someone with a Union XXXXXX whatever machine just for a chain stitch.

A chain-stitching service preserves rather than enhances the twined rope effect. Stick the term in google images as phx suggests. Vintage and decent vintage-style jeans have ornamental chain-stitched hems. The hems of modern mass-produced jeans are lock-stitched, which is strong and plain. If you want to shorten your jeans and keep them chain-stitched, somebody has to do them on an old machine. Far as the US goes, Self Edge have Union Specials and offer the service.

Deez: The Euro hem uses a technique that preserves the original hem from the manufacturer. It works great and is much easier to have done than finding a chain stitch service. Costs about 1-2 $ more but worth it.

has anything been marked down yet?

thanks for all the tips guys. i did do some more research on the interwebz and found that lock stitching is better than chain stitching. so... for both chinos and denim, if i get them euro hemmed, will i be in good shape?
