I've run into the same problem. My tailor, who is excellent, suggested that I forget about the european style hem and just hem them. Here's why: Really, the only detailing that you'll be losing is the stone wash and frayed bottoms. I wear my jeans long, so the bottoms will become frayed within a matter of days. Plus, they'll be naturally frayed - and that's kind of the point, isn't it? He uses the same color thread on the hem, and you can't tell the difference. But, if it's a question of a few dollars, and the eurohem makes you feel better, you might as well just do that.
