Would be great but I'm in Canada and the shipping will not be worth it.

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.

yes, dont mention original hem ^

"Original hem" is one of those phrases you just can't say around a tailor. It's like saying BOMB at an airport.

I am normally a 27 in APC Petit Standard. I was wondering how big the Unbranded UB101 28 is compared to the APC 27?
