Hemming?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I've been waiting on Thavar 811p for longer than I can remember now.

 

I'm looking for 30/32 but with no luck. So I'm left with 2 options.

 

Yoox have 31/32 and 30/34

 

I don't really want to size up the waist, so that leaves me with the option of 30/34 and hemming them.

 

What are peoples opinions on hemming? Anyone had any bad/good experiences?

 

and would anyone be able to recommend a tailor in London? How much does it cost to get in done by a Pro?

 

Cheers

hello - well that's really frustrating when you can't find your size at good discounted price.  I feel it all the time.

 

if you hem your jeans you must realize:

 

1) the value of the jeans will decrease dramatically.  so make sure when you hem, you plan to keep jeans and not resale

2) sometimes 34L the behind the knees honeycomb will mis align from your knee.. also the bottom the pre stacking and wrinkles and often some minor details will be cut off from hemming

3) if you do decide to go w/ the hem, i believe there's 2 types of 'original' hem.  I think ones called euro hem and the other is original hem.  Euro hem is they literally cut off (or fold) the bottom of your jeans and keep the hem and stitching as is, then re attach it to shorter length.  The original hem is cut the original stitching of the hem off, re attach the hem on shorter length but w/ new matching color stitches.

4) finally there's a cheap hem where they just cut off to your right length, and fold jeans up little bit then stitch it back together.  Do not use this method.

Thanks for the heads up collector.

 

I didn't even think about the repercussion. Especially number 2!

 

I think that's put me off the idea. I guess the hunt continues.......

Do you think if get away with a L34 with 811p?

I usually fold the bottoms twice anyway!

Do 811p run shorter than usual Thavars?
