I just picked up a pair of PDC's real cheap, but it's about 2-3 inches too long. I'm going to get them hemmed tomorrow, and after searching older posts I know to ask them to use the original hem. My main question is: how long I should ask the tailor to make the legs? Obviously jeans shouldn't be hemmed as short as a pair of slacks, but I will go in wearing a pair of low-cut sneakers and was just curious as to how low they should fall. Also, should I ask them to leave any extra room for shrinkage? I would have washed them beforehand, but I plan on leaving them untouched and ebaying them in case it turns out that hemming them is going to be more trouble than its worth or screw up the styling of the jeans. Thanks.
