    Do it. I had the exact same pair altered, for I suffer from your skinny leg affliction as well. I'm very pleased with the results.

    exactly!
    most of the peeps that opted on tapering are fussy about fit & "drape"
    ironically, most ended up selling down the line anyway cuz they weren't satisfied how they turned out.

    simplify your life__ get the jeans you like on the getgo


    in addition to the above comment_ i don't think there's any shortcut for a proper tailoring.

    either, the tailor rips out the entire pink inseam topstitch, do the hem taper & topstich the entire inseam w/different color thread
    ... or leave the inseam without topstitching after the taper.

    anything short of that, you got a half-ass pink line floating from the crotch__ that doesn't go all the way down :eek:

    No the tailor is going to rip the entire thing he just didn't want to add the thread again because he said it was too much work to find the correct thread. He wasn't just going to rip half of it out.

    This looks like it's kind of split.

    One cold soak at the beginning, and maybe 4 cold washes. I'll try to put up some pics this weekend.

    If the tailor isn't willing to do the job you requested for... take it else where. Like I know for a fact Steven over at Ralicar would do the job to spec and preserve the chain stitch as well.

    Well it might be a challenge to some of the tailors and if you keep insisting on it they might jack up the price to get it done.

    Yeah he said he would do it it's just going to be 60, but apparently he is the best tailor in Milwaukee.

    Railcar charges 55 for tapering so I guess that's normal. Hope it goes well, post pics when you get them back!

    I'm looking for a pair of Momotaros to replace my APC New Standards (slim straight, not skinny). I've done some searching but wondering if anyone has a recommendation on a similar cut in Momotaro. Right now I'm considering the 0705 onewash from Blue in Green. Thanks in advance!

    *I'm only 5'7'', my APCs are size 27

    This would sound right. Probably need a 30 or so, but hard to say.

    How fitted are your APCs and is it the new or old measurements? Assuming old, you'd probably be good with a 29 or 30.

    Check Blue Owl, they are a momotaro dealer and a SF sponsored store here, nothing against blue and green but give some love to SF vendors!

    I only sized down one on my APC's but seems like most guys go 2 sizes, unless of course you have a monster sized hog like CalTex

    Well I bought them 2 years ago so I assume old sizing. They fit a little too tight in the thighs but otherwise perfect. I normally wear a size 28, and I sized down because I was told they would stretch out (and they definitely did, but I'm assuming that since the Momotaros are a thicker denim, they'd stretch less)

    I will indeed check out Blue Owl, do we get any discount...half joking...but do we?

    Does anyone have both APC New Standards and Momotaro 0705--what are the differences in cut, if any?

    Thank you all for the input! [​IMG]

    Having tried both, I would venture that the 705 is cut slimmer overall than the New Standard (not comparing tag sizes, but when measurements are matched up), although the basics of them both being a "slim-straight" style jean is about the same. FWIW as a 34-waist, I manage a 33 NS and a 36 705, for thighs sake. Hem on NS might be a bit smaller, but not totally sure.
