Yeah I find tailors are expensive in TO, even the crappy mall ones. She quoted me like 22 bucks on the phone to shorten a shirt sleeves... Going to see her after work

There's a thread that deals with alterations for suits in T.O., but no mention of jeans. I've been buying some better quality denim recently. I have a pair of really nice Spurr, a pair of KMW 2010 that are fairly decent, with Iron Heart and a Nudie Straight Sven on the way. I want to know if anyone has a reco for a tailor who can alter them for length and maybe get one pair tapered. Go easy on me, I'm new to selvedge and nice denim in general. Do these need to be 'chainstitched' when the alteration is done? Also, my usual tailor always asks me if I want the 'original hem' on my jeans, but always makes me feel like I should say 'no, don't worry about it'. Don't really know what 'original hem' means, but I have a feeling it would be harder for her....
Hemming a jean or trousers is like $10. And why don't you just buy the right cut and length to begin with instead of making life difficult?
Original hem? It means that your sewing girl doesn't want to open it up and just tacks down the new length
Chain stitch on jeans? These are JEANS not a Savill [sic] Row suit
