i got quoted 52.50 (prolly plus tax) for crotch repair and a slight restitching on the side seams for a pair of APC new standards.
-_- what to do. is basically my one pair of jeans
I'm guessing you're using a mail-it-in denim repair service? If that price turns you off, you could bring some denim swatches to your neighborhood tailor and ask them to do a patch up job using those swatches. Would cost a fifth your quoted price, and they'd likely do a good job.
