i would avoid that place on 3rd. it's now called denim revival. i had them hem my jeans and specifically requested chain stitching and also requested to have the excess fabric preserved (for future repair work). of course they jeans weren't hemmed correctly because they just used a regular single stitch and the excess fabric was thrown away. i will never go there again.
denim doctors on beverly and martel are excellent. they hemmed my jeans perfectly and also remembered to keep the extra fabric. i highly recommend them and their service is fast and friendly.
