Altering hem size of trouleg

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So I have these trouleg 8EU that I'm selling on teh ebays and I tried them on today. I really like the fit (minus the trumpet flair).





They are two inches too long but I thought , maybe instead of selling I could have the tailor take the flair out and just stack. Any advice?

Thanks

To see if I could have bought them from you ahaha ^^ but they are definetely too small.

As the fit is good, I would suggest that you hem them and let them stack a little...you will have a straight leg black wash

troulegs are hard to hem, so i've heard. I know a few people that have had it done. Grondezzy comes to mind. I've got a pair of 8aa 31x32 I either want to trade for 31x30 or hem, but I am weary of hemming.

I have two paris of Trouleg 8AA - One that was originally 32L and another that I hemmed from 34L to 32.

Ends up, the hemmed pair is my daily beater instead of the original - The hem 2" hem job moderated the size of the leg opening, so the Trouleg flair is very, very slight. Really, they're the most perfect pair of pseudo-straights because of the alteration.

So, back to the original question - I'd get them altered, if only slightly.

the right tailor can alter them fron the thigh/knee area and make it look seamless as long as there isnt any signifying wear in that area that would give it away and also maintain the trumpet

Lol no. You guys have it wrong. I want to keep the length (stack) and reduce the flair to a straight leg, instead of hemming...

Would this work?

It can be done just make sure you get them to a good tailor.

solution is simple sell troulegs buy safado

^ I disagree. Safado's NEVER fit anything like Trouleg for me from the knee down. Ive tried countless Safaod's and own every Trouleg ever made save for 73c and some other I forgot

^^ I agree. The ideal solution is to start with a pair of Troulegs and tailor-down the flair. I would love to wear Safados but they just don't work from the shin-down and make my legs look super-stubby.

of course trouleg and safado fit different below the knee down one is straight the other is trumpet but given the op wants to turn it into a straight leg for aesthetic reasons there won't be much material difference

I had my Trouleg 8DK tapered at the ends to get rid of the trumpet and make them a straight leg like Safado. I got them back and the work they did was amazing and look so much better with the 8DK wash. You can't even tell they have been altered.
I would recommend it. I just went to Nordstrom and had it done for around $20, they also took in the waist, I had sized down since it is 8DK but they still stretched but that alteration turned out great as well.

It's not just the trumpet opening, trouleg is much slimmer below the knee than safado.

I would say look for 26x30 but you will never find them probably...I would refrain from hemming if you like the slight flare on them. If you want straight leg jeans then get them hemmed and you will open your options on shoes you can wear with them for sure still
