1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Denimheads would caution to only chain-stitch denim hems. Especially when re-attaching the original hem.

    "reattaching" the original hem?

    I personally find the chain stitch unnecessary, but I know/have spoken to "experts" who scoff at the idea of having a hem finished any other way. Never really asked opinions on jeans that didn't come with the original hem chain stitched...


    It becomes more important (or necessary) with pre-washed/treated jeans, where the hem may have some fraying or discoloration that won't be consistent if you simply hem, fold and stitch the new length. On raw denim it's less of a big deal. However, my denim tailor "re-attaches" all "original hems" on every pair of denim they tailor. Basically they remove the bottom at the original fold/stitch and then restitch it to the bottom of newly hemmed jean.

    I understand, and I like a chain stitch (there's a lot of chain stitching in the rest of the jeans), but in this case I wanted to keep the 'un-chain-stitched' original hem, to keep/get the nice wearing effect of the hem, like the jeans on the bottom in the pic below; the jeans on top have a new hem and don't age as nice.

    Unless you are going to be using them for riding the knee patches are a bit ridiculous, no?

    They're actually on the inside of the leg, inside thigh, which is even more ridiculous, imho. Hence the self-loathing.

    Probably good for being on your Vespa zipping around Italia perhaps.

    A girl can get away with wearing those pants. A guy wearing those, that isn't riding something or someone, is going to look foolish.
