Heming

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
How much do you pay to get your jeans hemmed? This is for the people who get their jeans hemmed.
I was thinking about putting on here that I would hem jeans for people, but then I realized it probably wouldn't make sense because they would have to pay for shipping both ways.

I used to go to a 'chain' tailor and they charged $18 for a Eurohem. I found a nice independent tailor who does an awesome job and I pay $10 for a Eurohem (cash, no tax) If I bring multiple pairs, he discounts me accordingly. Nice, because I have to hem all my jeans and it is costly! This is Canadian money too, BTW. (which with the $ being the way it is, there is not a big difference!)

what is eurohem?

I pay $18 for original hem at nordies. No tax
They told me without original hem its free. But i think its only for nordie bought items.

I believe that the rule at nordstroms is:

free if you purchased the jeans from nordstroms (it might be $8 for an original hem of a store bought item)
$18 for an original hem of a pair brought in
$10 for a basic hem of a pair brought in

I used to pay $25 for original hemming for about 2 years . Now I pay $18 at a different place. A little better I guess, but it seems like I'm still paying too much. I just can't find a place that does it for cheaper.

At the Nordstrom near me, they charge $38 for original hem if you didn't purchase the jeans there!!

Anyway, I pay $10 to get regular hem at this tailor near me. But I'm trying to find a new one since they didn't do too great of a job on my Paige's

I just taught myself how to do original hem because I was sick of waiting a week to get my jeans back! I used to pay $14 though.

My tailor charges ~$12 for original hem (euro hem method).

$38 for hemming is craziness!!!

I take mine to Nordstrom's. $18 for original if purchased there, $36 if not purchased from Nordstroms. Although I went to Bloomingdales once and paid $20 (b/c I purchased them there) it's $40 if not, utterly ridiculous, if you ask me.

I think the eurohem is where the take the jeans in somewhere along the length of the jeans so you can't tell they were hemmed.. I'm not sure though.
I pay $10 to get the sandwich hem.

if you call nordies, and ask if you can pick it up sooner nicely, they'll get it done =)

Like one time i dropped it off on a sunday and called tuesday and asked if i could pick it up earlier like friday or saturday and the woman says "you can pick it up tomorrow after 6. Sound good?"
=) But it sucked. I came the next day and it wasnt hemmed up enough, so they took it back and it was done by the next morning
