Doooooo it. Someone else did them and it looks awesome. Then again blue owl is making a tapered grand indigo soon.

He got it to 11 thigh 7.8 knee 6.9 hem. Pretty much a new cure fit

For what tagged size are those measurements?

I'd generally agree with you here, but the grand indigo fabric seems very unique as well as the zimbabwe cotton.  I don't know of too many other denims that are like it.  Getting them tapered isn't that big of a deal, I'm actually going to get my 702s tapered this weekend.  I love the fabric and details of Momo's enough to get them tapered instead of just grabbing another indigo/black or indigo weft denim.  Plus I want to be 100% happy and confident in my fit if they are going to be my go to jean for the next 702 days!  So I don't think tapering is a big deal if you like the rest of the denim enough, changing the pink inseam on the other hand, I didn't even know that was possible, that's a bit much.

Wasn't really a choice the tailor said it was too much work to add the pink thread again. I love the thread, but if it's got to go to fit me better I understand. I figured he would be able to keep it, guess not. I got the Momo's because of the color and the cotton it's so damn soft. What jean would people suggest I get then? Something with the same dark dye and Zimbabwe cotton.

When is Jay stocking the grand indigo?

Do it. I had the exact same pair altered, for I suffer from your skinny leg affliction as well. I'm very pleased with the results.

exactly!
most of the peeps that opted on tapering are fussy about fit & "drape"
ironically, most ended up selling down the line anyway cuz they weren't satisfied how they turned out.

simplify your life__ get the jeans you like on the getgo

in addition to the above comment_ i don't think there's any shortcut for a proper tailoring.

either, the tailor rips out the entire pink inseam topstitch, do the hem taper & topstich the entire inseam w/different color thread
... or leave the inseam without topstitching after the taper.

anything short of that, you got a half-ass pink line floating from the crotch__ that doesn't go all the way down eek.gif

No the tailor is going to rip the entire thing he just didn't want to add the thread again because he said it was too much work to find the correct thread. He wasn't just going to rip half of it out.

This looks like it's kind of split.

Cool, might take me 1.5 years to get there, but good to know it is posisble. How many washes/soaks you have?

One cold soak at the beginning, and maybe 4 cold washes. I'll try to put up some pics this weekend.

Thanks man.

If the tailor isn't willing to do the job you requested for... take it else where. Like I know for a fact Steven over at Ralicar would do the job to spec and preserve the chain stitch as well.
post #2069 of 3320
Well it might be a challenge to some of the tailors and if you keep insisting on it they might jack up the price to get it done.

Yeah he said he would do it it's just going to be 60, but apparently he is the best tailor in Milwaukee.
