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.

Well. That's the reason. Original hems are only "necessary" when you want a prewashed/distressed jean shortened and want to maintain the look of the hem (fraying/destroyed/artificial roping) . Not if you want to shorten raw denim or if you want to cuff.

Thanks for clearing that up. So just tell my tailor to hem it as close to the original as possible?

Thanks but I'm going to try another local reputable tailor instead. Just not comfortable enough to send me denim out to get hemmed.

Pictures of the tapered unbranded (221/201?) would be appreciated. When I compare the measurements of the skinny 33 to the tapered 32/31, I get confused. If I had looked at solely the "waist" measurements, then I should be able to size down to even a 31 (my "true" size). But I remember trying on the skinny jeans, and I could not even get the buttons closed until I tried on the 33. That seems to suggest I should go with a pair that has the same waist measurements as those. The tapered 31 is roomier than skinny 33 in every measurement except waist, which is one inch smaller, and Im worried that I will run into the same problem if I order the 31; namely, that I wont be able to button them or risk blowing out a button or stretch a hole. On the other hand, the tapered 32 are listed as having a waist one inch bigger than the skinny 33, so Im worried that I will end up with a waist too big. There are no stores around me that stock the tapered fit, so as a result I have to order online (probably from UO as they offer free shipping and returns) and play the numbers game.

 

 

My question is this: do you guys think I should just bite the bullet and buy a 31, or should I go with a 32?

 

Can anyone who owns/has tried both pairs comment on the difference in roominess/fit between the two?

 

I feel stuck now because the gap jeans now have a week's worth of wear and stretch in them, and I feel their measurements will not be of any use now.

I think even blue owl isn't even able to do them due to their thickness

My local dry cleaners was able to do my NF elephant 2's so I would assume most people shouldn't have trouble finding a spot to do the UB 21oz.

But for hemming, just take them in and tell the person you want your jeans hemmed to what ever length..don't say anything about original hem. I dont even know why some of you would mention that.
post #885 of 1449
yes, dont mention original hem ^
