• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I paid 600$ for both with a discount code. I’m just trying to get what I paid for. Even with 10% off that’d only be 77$ off at full retail you’d still pay 700$ For both With that discount. So for both you get like 177 off I think that’s a good deal. I think there sold out too idk. The nimbus retails for 398 and 378 for washed graphite. Plus they’re already hemmed which that in its own cost upwards of 20-30$ Anyways will delete the post later. Dm if interested. Ty
I feel ya.. but from my understanding the moment you make alterations to your piece of clothing, you lose its value by a lot. It doesn’t matter who altered them unless it was JE himself. No one is going to pay near retail for altered jeans. I would rather spend the extra $50 on a brand new pair and take it to a tailor myself or even buy a used pair which is around ~$200 these days.

The fact that you’re selling them right after you got it hemmed just tells me that it didn’t come out right which sucks cause I’ve been there.

dont mean to burst your bubble or anything but someone has to tell ya... sorry bro but you have to accept that massive L and sell it for way under.

I agree with this. I know I personally just automatically move on from any listing that states the item was tailored. At least 1 of my friends has the same mentality as I've sent him some listings, but he immediately loses interest on ones that are tailored.

What’s the best way to raw hem your denim? I want to do it to my pair of obsidians - looking to make it look like the hem on the skittles

I was going to point you to the BST thread, but you already posted this there. This isn't the right place for this, also as others have said, no one is going to buy them at that price.

Maybe the price is good? Scrolls further... almost retail.

Bundled pricing could be good. Sees...$600.

Edit: Joking aside, just post them on Grailed and see if anyone will bite. You never know. Take a look at the comps while you’re there and maybe adjust pricing. Sucks to lose money but that’s the risk when you alter clothing.

Im losing interest as well, direction of brand is absolutely changing. Wish I grabbed more gear back in the day, it was like they couldn't miss and price was on point

A skittles AE would be ridiculous. Maybe they will bring back some classic feels sometime soon
I haven’t even checked this forum in weeks cuz the stuff they’re putting out is terrible lol. They’re going in an awful direction. How many cargo pants/ jackets do we need?

youve altered them aswell.

you won’t even get 75 bucks for them. You’re better off throwing them away.
