    alternatively you could go to blue in green - they probably do chainstitching there also.

    They specialize in the original hem and will deliver to you so it's not a problem if you cannot find a local tailor that can do the original hem.

    45 RPM will deliver?? I work in midtown and I'm really interested in having them hem a pair of jeans that I just bought.. but there is no location near me. However, if they would deliver that would be great.

    Yeah. I figured that out after I posted my reply. I think I'm just gonna try 45rpm it sounds like they know what they're doing.

    Way late, but I figured I'd say it anyway. I'd go with BiG, if I were you or anyone in your situation. Went to 45RPM and although they'll chainstitch, they won't switch the thread. It's the same color thread as the ones on their jeans, which is a burnt orange. BiG will change the color thread to match (as closely as possible) the ones on the jeans. The posts above were awhile ago and they've since gotten their machine.

    guys so where exactly is BiG?

    Also I am new to the forum and had no idea that it is possible to shorten jeans so they still look like the original ones at the bottom!

    I currently have some jeans that are long on me and as a result of me constantly stepping on them at the back they are now stringy and slightly ripped at the bottom. Since they are still long is it possible for me to take it to one of these places so they will just cut it off and make it the correct size and they will look as good as new???
    I am in the LI/NYC are. Thanks in advance.

    If you read this thread, I'm guessing you know that the reason for the original/Euro/California hem is that the jeans have a certain wear to them that would make just hemming them look weird (no wear or fade at the hem).

    Also, if you're going for a chainstitch hem, you should make sure that it's going to be the right length by either
    a) soaking to get that shrinkage out of the way
    b) getting one wash jeans or
    c) making sure your jeans are sanforized

    Okay, now BIG:

    thanks. So chainstitching will make the current jeans that I have that are all worn out to threads on the bottom pretty much look like new at BiG?

    Also will they measure them there how much they have to take off. Should I wear the sneakers that I wear most often with them?
