Because hemming is considered a minor alteration. The procedure is the same whether you're cutting 2 or 10 cm from the length. As long as they taper the legs a little, there won't be any difference in fit. I kind of can't believe you've never had to hem your jeans before.

I only had one pair of jeans hemmed in my life.
Did not go well.
I'm a firm believer that people shouldn't buy clothes that don't fit and then alter them. They should fit from the get go.
Unless of course, we're talking about making something from scratch like a tailored suit.

Anyway, that's just my point of view. Sorry if it sounds ridiculous to some.

It is slightly ridiculous when talking about hemming, but I see your point. Obviously you're entitled to your opinion.

How do you really, truly expect this work? You're just one example. Think about the guy who has a 38" inseam or the other guy who has a 26" inseam or maybe even the guy who has a 32" inseam but likes his pants to have a 28" inseam? The combinations are crazy to think about and for any designer to put out something for everyone, it's just insane. You would never sell that many and the production costs would be nuts, not to mention the space you would need in a stock room and on the sales floor! There's a reason tailors exist and it's not for poor plebs who can't seem to find clothes that "fit them." Tailors make clothes fit people, properly. Very very rarely do clothes fit most people off the racks, unless you're somewhat close in build to that specific designer's fit model.

The same thing could also be said for shoes. Some people with wide feet, narrow feet, higher arches, flat feet, etc.

Diesel and Nudie for instance do jeans with 3 different inseams. 30", 32" and 34". That probably covers 90 % of people. Unless you're a midget or a giant. Seems reasonable to me.

Never had a problem finding shoes that fit me.

Most luxury and/or artisanal brands don't do that. You've been around since 2011 puzzled.gif

Which is a shame.

For perspective, people on these types of threads are a little higher end than Diesel and Dsquared, so the idea of having clothes tailored is only natural. That's part of the process, and dare I say art of style and fashion.

Diesel is complete crap of course. I was just using it as an example of a brand that does different inseams.
Dsquared clothes however are more or less in the same price range as ysl.

ill try to bring this thread back a bit. also saw the new nashville shirt today. it's the same fabric as the fw15 nashville, just with the white. it wasn't different enough for me to justify buying it. i prefer the red/black shadow plaid's reference to the fw13 stuff as well. but still, beautiful shirt. will sell fast for sure.

How did you like the new raw hem jeans therattler? How did they compare to other jeans you have in size and fit if you don't mind? Relative to AW 15 mid waist and AW 13 raw black / indigo if you could. Cheers. 

post #12568 of 14968

so my aw13s are a size 29, and i tried on a 28. they were tight in the waist, about an inch higher maybe, but would be perfect after they stretched out. i would say that they were as skinny as the aw13s before i washed them, so after a wash they would be identical. i don't have the mid 15's, but compared to my 15 D02's they were the same size, but definitely skinnier. when i buy them, i'll probably take them up, and take them in only a touch because i have super skinny calves.

 

i hadn't actually tried on a mid waist before, but i think they will look great with a shirt tucked in and a blazer. they made my proportions look better. and anyways, i've definitely come around to the raw hems. tailored with no break (like on the palladium runway) they'll be badass with any of the boots, but still nice enough to be dressed up at the office etc. was really impressed.

Thanks a lot, that's good to hear. I was concerned they might be like the SS 16 ones which were pretty loose. I can't wait for mine now. The online store still hasn't shipped mine even though they've had other sizes in stock for nearly a week (I guess my size is yet to arrive - or they've forgotten my pre-order). I also take 29 in AW 13 raw D02s which are about as skinny as I like to go, but I can also work with a looser fit so I think a 29 will be good for me. I don't want to go down as I generally find that while the legs fit okay, the waist band is usually too small in 28 and I've never had much luck with waist bands stretching out.

So for those who have a pair , would you compare Wyatt sizing similar to CP sizing?
