Finding a tailor with a proper double-chainstitch machine set up for denim hems is rare. Suggest sending them to Self Edge, Blue in Green or Blue Owl for a proper job.

Second sentence, incorrect. The roping is the result of fabric movement; even on jeans hemmed with a 43200G, the look after wash is different from the look before wash. If you chainstitch washed jeansm on which the bulk of the shrinkage and hence fabric movement has already taken place, you won't get yer proper, hardcore roping.
Second this. Denim shrink cycles/stitch pull and fabric movement both create the roping.

Take measurements properly off the jeans and then look at size charts. There are many options.

TTS is recommended on 811s. I was pleased. But since 35 isn't available, suggest the 34. There's plenty of stretch in them, and they're a forgiving fit for a slim cut.
