^with my regular unbranded, apc jeans, and LVC505 I've never had an issue with staining car interior

It's fabric, not leather if that makes a difference

Hmmm that's not good I think. If it's more than normal, then that could mean there is still a lot of excess indigo. You could give them a soak and try to get some of it out.

And another option is getting back to your first question! :P Did anybody else have the same problem?

I haven't noticed unusual transfer but then again most of my chairs I sit in are dark colored. These are pretty abrasive and they do fade faster than most jeans iv owned. Not sure if that translates to ur worry. Give it a test run on something u don't care about maybe even intentionally rubbing ur butt on it to see if it'll leave any die behind. This should also get rid of any of the loose die

A guy rushes in to see a doctor as his right ball has turned blue. The doctor rushes him into the operating room and removes the testicle. Weeks later, he goes back to the doctor as his left testicle is also turning blue. He has that one removed as well. Two weeks later, he rushes back to the doctor, saying "Now my dick is blue as well!" The doctor says, "Wait a minute, do you wear a lot of raw denim?"

Apparently a pair of reverse fades by N&F [10/10]

Just took some pictures of the some jeans I got done over the weekend.

I'm guess I need to find another tailor...





Unbranded UB301





Shorten and tapered

Lol do u live-in my town...yes we both need a new tailor
post #863 of 1527
Ah man. It looks horrible when a tailor does that. Should have made a brand new hem after cutting the fabric, instead of re-attaching it.
post #864 of 1527
have him undo the hem and unfold whats left there. maybe if he makes a small hem he can still save it.

Any who has them or jeans that are similar in terms off indigo rubbing off/fading qualities have any issues with staining light car interior?

Since the denim seems to be very abrasive I'm concerned about staining a tan car interior

I have a tan leather interior and have seen some serious indigo transfer. Think about it all the slight movements and the heat generated in your lower body. The majority can be cleaned off with a leather cleaner except the seams of the seat.

Well I did tell him I want to keep the original hem. Maybe that's is why it's like that. Luckily I didn't get him to do my new APC & N&F denims

Unfortunately a majority of these tailors do not know how to keep the original hem or keep the selvedge looking clean without making the jeans look like frankenstein jeans. When I asked my guy if he knew how to do it and actually showed him what I wanted he still came up with that atrocious job. I mean it's so obvious not one person on this earth regardless if they love or know what selvedge is would think that looks right. I'm still burning inside from seeing wha he had done.



In other news I just bought the beige selvedge chino's in a 34 and requested to have em hemmed to a 32. Looking forward to something different from denim as iv become known in my office as Denim Dan

Where are you getting it hemmed this time?

Do most of you just give your tailor your inseam measurement or do you try on your denim and have the tailor measure from there?

@matryx and dirty denim: ... Actually that IS the original hem! They cut away the necessary length and the ‘original’ hem stays on it’s place. In this video here you can see exactly what he did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giOkJUcc2wg The only difference is that his woman didn't cut excess fabric. Your taylor did.

 

What you want and what you should ask for in the future is: A new, chainstitched hem, that looks exactly the same as the original. And the most important question is: Can you do this!?

Maybe your taylors did it this way because they didn't have the machines to create a chainstitch?? Try asking him that.
