Oh no! They're too long?! Are you too far from a Diesel store to go try them on? I've gotten several of my Diesels hemmed. Seems like there's a taboo against doing that, but it's worked just fine for me in the past.

By "both washes" I assume you're talking about 8AR & 8FC?

Yeah, i'm too far from a diesel store to try them on. But i AM moving back to Tampa very soon, which i am very excited about =D

I have had Diesels hemmed but i really don't like to have Zathans or any boot cut jeans from diesel hemmed. I might have the 8FC hemmed cause the hems on those are pretty basic, but the 8AR hem is too nice to get rid of.

And, yes, by 'both washes' i meant 8AR and 8FC.

I always go with a "tricky hem" that preserves the original leg opening. It's never let me down, and if I gave you the Pepsi challenge, you'd be hard pressed to identify the original. Recently I took some Zathan 60Fs from 34" to 30.5." No problem at all.

I've heard about saving the hems so the jeans don't look crappy after being tailored but it just doesn't make sense to me how that's even possible. It's also very hard for me to find a good tailor in this town.

there are two methods

euro hem - folding up the jeans along the inside so that the old hem aligns with the desired length... inside is sewn up in such a way that it seems continuous. excess along the insides can be cut off, or retained (which is best for resell value)

tricky hem - they remove the original hem, cut the pants to the desired length, and restitch the old hem onto the pants.

Sounds crazy but it works like a charm. It would be well worth your while Heat, to check around town and see if anybody can perform the "tricky hem." I'll probably cost you double what a standard hem runs, but it's well worth it.

Either that or... well, have you thought of exchanging the jeans? Is that possible?

No offense or anything, but they MUST look strange after taking 3.5" off.

8AR


8FC (these have stretched to almost a size bigger after about two or three hours of wearing them)

I think they'd be fine. I've had 34L Zathans hemmed up to 30 without a problem.

I'll take a pic when I have some time. I thought hemming from a 34" would be a really bad idea, but the result was good. I often settle for 34L even though I'm a 30 just because it makes shopping for deals on ebay much easier. Finding the jeans you want in 33 x 30 is nearly impossible.
