Do you hem your jeans

post #1 of 14

Guys

First post here so big hello to everyone!

Wanted to find out what you all do for jeans which are too long (BTW, I am 6ft 1 size 32/33), specifically those pre-washed which has that nice worn/ fading at the bottom hem. Do you alter them to the right length, fold them or let it bunch up at the bottom?

currently, I let it bunch up but would like it to be right length but hate to lose the wearing/ fading at the hem.

Welcome to the Steez. I don't. I like my jeans unfooled-around-with. That is my way, what is yours?

I'd suggest a Eurohem if you would like to keep the original distressing on the hem.

As for heming pants I'm 5'5 and have never found a pair of pants off the rack that have fit me in length; so the answer is yes I hem all my pants.

Went back to the shop I bought my jeans from and they said they could do a cut and sew back on the hem. Saw some samples of other customers who had done it but not picked up their jeans yet. Looks quite authentic so giving it a try.

Ready in next 2-3 days. let's hope it turns out well.

It really depends on the pants, because a lot fot ime I like to have a worn look on the ends (if there already isn't) so not hemming them helps.

some denim makers will chain stitch the hems for you originally so it is official, just shorter.

I changed my mind, from my previous comment. I wore some unhemmed pants today and realzied how annoying they are, because they always get in the way and make me feel like I am going to trip so now I saw hem them.

Where did you get your jeans that they were willing to do the Euro/California/original hem?

I've gotten my jeans hemmed in this way before. But that's because the jeans were pre-distressed. I've had pair chainstitch hemmed (at Blue in Green) on a pair of raw jeans I'd soaked to get the shrinkage out of the way.

I don't know how necessary chain-stitching is these days. I think most non-premium jeans don't do them anymore anyway.

can someone get a pic of a chainstitched hem compared to a non-chain stitched hem?

To answer the question succinctly: Yes, always. No exceptions.

normally never, but I did for my Crates. Hopefully they wont shrink too much when I get around to washing them
