    @audog I’ll go ahead and answer for you. Railcar Fine Goods in Monrovia, CA does a good chain stitch hem. It’s $25 a pair plus shipping which I find to be the same every where else I’ve looked. Some charge $35 but include shipping. Best deal is having it done when you buy the pair which is not an option with several makers. Railcar gets it done in 2 business days.

    Thanks. Did you mark them yourself or just give them measurement?

    @SonnyUte here is also a good place for hemming. They just don’t advertise doing it quickly.

    If you do it online, you will be asked how many inches in 0.5 inch increments.

    They have a measurement guide (how to) on their website. Since I already knew what I wanted, I just told them the length. When you fill out the order form and pay, it is all on there, and they have a record, so I guess match up the order with the measurements when they get the pants.

    By the way, mine came with the flat waxed laces. Yours seem to be un-waxed. Can’t wait for more pics.

    Yeah I wasn’t sure which they would send. I may switch to waxed.
