Hey all. I need to get a pair of RB6s hemmed and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a tailor in NYC (preferably but not necessarily midtown area)? Thanks!

45 use to do chainstitching for $10? not sure if it's still offered or that cheap.
And I don't know if BIG does it for jeans not from them.

45rpm is $20+tax now. BiG is $10 and it will be faster than 45rpm.

And*"” BiG supposedly will try and match the original thread on the hem. 45rpm will only use their color thread.

But not in midtown. Worth the trip, though

) but 45rpm will try to match the color of the thread. I only used them on one pair but it was a black thread so not much matching there.

I gotta tellya, that just upsets me hearing that, pm. So that means the saleslady was just being lazy with me when I went there.
