Crate vs. Farinelli: The Official Jeans Thread - Page 106

I think jet will like that one.
post #1577 of 2680
hello everyone.
Whodini has posted pics of the two best ways to repair the grundeholes.
I go with the glue. It is the cleanest and will last basically last forever. we can paint the glue to match.
The holes will just about be completely unseen.
I am so sorry this has happened. I hope you find this acceptable.
I will also offer a credit for everyone who bought or buys the jean for a future purchase.
Needless to say that cutter and factory will not be getting any of my business.

It is fair to say 98% of the people who bought the jeans were from SF.
Thank you for your support and again I can't believe to tell you how sorry I am for this.
Best,
Mauro

I think I'm a bit confused. Are we sending these back? It seems kind of dumb to ship something across the country to fix a few holes that either I or some local place could do properly. I was just about ready to fix it myself when Mauro said not to wear the jeans.

My grundleholes are behind the pockets and took some looking to find. I have a 36 so the placement may be different by sizing.

I am going to glue them but I do not see if they would ever grow. This is just a precaution because I red on the interweb that the sky is falling.

shit, if it's just a matter of gluing a patch over the hole it seems easy enough as a DIY assuming the supplies can be mailed.

I would just spend the $2 for the denim glue and fix them myself rather than shipping them round trip to DC for them to do it. Besides that way you have the glue for any other jean booboos you may experience.

I think the touch of glue will work just fine. But am I supposed to ship these back to you Mauro? And are you saying you'll offer a credit even if I don't return the jeans? Thanks for getting on the problem, we all appreciate it.

Mail? It is summer. I wait until mid day and look for asphalt with tar bubbling up. I takes a bit and smooth it on the inside of the grundlehole. I likes the smell.

Got mine today, PM'd you Mauro. Grundleholes are not a big deal at all, will fix them myself... shipping these across the continent 3 times at $40.00 a shot is just burning money for no real reason. No stitching issues to speak of, can't see any reason the rivets would be a problem... everything looks good. The denim is most excellent, I wish I had 5 pair made of this stuff.
post #1586 of 2680
Can I change the subject? I'm going to get these hemmed.... I know I know I should just stack, but I'm too short and I'm not super stoked about the look. Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there anything I should tell my tailor? Does anyone have any recommendations for a place in either Minneapolis, MN or Madison, WI?

I think the best way to handle the patch is to have everyone PM whodini his address and he'll personally come to your house, glue in hand, and fix your shit
post #1588 of 2680
Any tailor can hem jeans. It's about the easiest possible thing for them to do. Just make sure you're clear about how long you want them and do NOT make them too short, because you'll never get another pair.
post #1589 of 2680
hemming raw is a little iffy pre-wash, but if you really have to do it, go an extra .5 inch longer than what your tailor measures. what about cuffing?

What happened to the personal ass wiping? Bait and switch!
