Getting twisted seam hemmed?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
What about getting twisted seam hemmed?

The seam should end in the middle of the jeans right?
So if you hem them, the seam won't be in the middle anymore!?
Think that will look crazy!

Did some1 have his joeys hemmed?
If so, can you post pictures?

Thanks

gotta trust my word for it advanceart, its not rocket science actually its very easy. i could probably do it myself if i had a sewing machine.


here's a pic of it.




noone would ever notice it, unless they were bent down that low near your pants...and if so i hope its a girl and not some denim freak or else you're fucked lol.

the rehemming is fine... i guess what advancedart meant to say was if you cut the jeans, the seam that twists and should fall in the middle front part of the hem will be off-center after the alteration (the left leg's seam will be moved further to the left of center) depending on the length that's to be cut. correct me if i'm wrong though... just my observation

yeah i know what he means.

if not i would have 6 ruined TRs =p

i have had the seams aligned AND the patch reattached onto my patch joeys.

it all depends on who your tailor is, how much time he/she willing to spend, and how much money you're willing to pay for it =p

i just took 3 pairs of TR in to get hemmed - i told them i wanted the tricky hem, but they said that the seams might not match up. i did not want to get just a regular hem job, though. i hope they turn out ok

i've gotten many pairs of TRs hemmed w/ the original hem and they have all lined up.

I bought some from an honestforum member and they were hemmed to 28.5 (short) and the hem turned out great. Not sure how it was done though, but I know it can be!

Sorry to hijack the thread but I'm gonna have my TRs tailored soon and wanted a little more info before i went. I want them to look like the original so do i just tell the tailor to keep the original hem and what is a "tricky" hem? Thanx in advance
post #15 of 52
Ooops forgot to add if anyone can recommend any good tailors in NYC. Thanx again

A "tricky hem" is a hem with the original hem reattached. You can ask for that, or a European hem, which is the same thing. Just make sure your tailor understands you want to keep the original hem! If you can't find another place, Nordstrom always does a good job (at least in my experience). Good luck!

I hate tailors and I'm very impatient.. I pretty much want things done my way so fortunately I hem my jeans by hand...

Here are some pics of some of my jeans. I only took like two inches off. There is a tricky way to keep the original hem.. I NEVER cut my TR. I just sort of fold half of what Im taking off (1'' for 2'' or 1.5'' for 3'' off) and then sew inside out right under the original stitching. Then I iron on a glue like stip to make the denim stick to the jean insead of folding back over. Its not as complicated as it seems and doesnt really take that long. Good thing is I get my jean done the perfect way i want it every time.

that's impressive bro... I'll have to learn how to do that myself sometime... I have wayyyyy too many pairs that haven't been worn just because I'm too scared to take them to the tailor ...

and advancedart... lol, this has to be the first time I've seen you venture into the TR section (to post at least)... are you looking for a pair of joey's? or are you just wondering how your shazor's will look after a hem job?

How much does tailoring at Nordstrom for the type of hem you all are suggesting normally cost? And I assume that they do tailor clothes not bought there?

Off the topic a bit...does anyone know of a tailor in Atlanta, GA that they know from experience is good (particularly with TRs: twisted seam and Big T)?

Thank you!

Norstrom normally charges $18 if you bought them there. I don't know what they charge if you don't, i always say i bought them there even if i didn't

I need all my jeans hemmed and my tailor does a great job. Here are my Joey Big T Rainbows...



You can barely tell they've been hemmed and the seams match up on the front and back.

No No, I would NEVER Cut the jean. If for some reason the stitching gives... your f*cked! Dont cut the jean because it can also fray. Also cutting the jean just makes it look and feel like a sloppy jean. Just do the hemming without cutting.. even in the twist doesnt match up, its not a big deal becasue its not noticeable. Just IMO

I am not so happy with the hem jobs i got. The white threads dont match up at all on my 2 pairs of Joeys and on the Sammy you can barely see the stitching on the regular hem job (couldn't get the tricky hem b/c i had stepped on the hems and they were too worn out.) i dont know what i should do b/c i dont want the jeans to be too short if i try getting them hemmed again.

can you show us some pics? I've been hesitant to take some TR to tailor. . . I've been cuffing up everything, but I need to get them altered. All are big T!!!
