FWIW, i just got my rescues back from Jaime's in the north bay (SF) and they did a pretty damn good job. i dropped off 4 shirts to get darted with the jeans so i don't know what the chainstitching costs, but the grand total was $61, so that's pretty good either way..

okay, so here's the deal. i live in d.c., mauro says there's no capable chainstitchers for miles, and well, of course i believe him.

called BiG and they said they don't chainstitch outside jeans. i'll be in NY mon-wed next week, so what are my options, and how much am i looking at to get them shipped back to me?

Only walk-ins.. It's $15 each pair, then $10 to mail them to you if you're not local.

Fwok. I'm in Boston, so that's a long walk.

You guys give such great service that I would happily mail stuff cross continent if you would accept it.

I recommend taking a plane. It would be the most expensive chain stitch ever, but at least you'd get it done right.
