Sounds like the sugarcane stitching

The other day I bought a pair of charity shop jeans, women's raws with some elastane in, for £3 and I'm going to reinforce the crotches on my jeans, two pairs have holes and a couple more are on the way and I ain't paying £60 or whatever it would cost to get them all tailored.

ORLY?

can only find black Sad


i got the silver selvedge ones about 18months ago, not worn them in about 9months. something about them doesnt really make them "dior" if you get me.. but they are nice.

i took them to my local dry cleaners, think it was about £13 to fix the crotch, pick em up on thursdsay.
he asked if i wanted them cleaned, i said no, if he cleans them ill go nuts.

Sent my Ivalease jeans to www.thedenimdoctor.co.uk in Manchester. Got them back within 2 days and i'm well pleased with the result. Was borderline gonna chuck them out as the arse was ripped to shred(no homo) Cost about £23 or something all together with delivery. Poor pics i know but i'm well happy Cool massivly reccomended A+++++

Great job there, that's definitely a site to remember. Maybe it should go in the original post?

Lol all the Mancs have got a new tailor. Do
you reckon I could trust stitches with a leather jacket? What did they do to your jeans?

I didn't realise the denim doctor was James Personal Tailor. I luv all the pics he has of famous clients on the wall. Something decent to look at while doing the mundane job of getting your trousers turned up. Plus you can go for a pint in Thomas's Chop House underneath when you're done.

I picked up a pair of Garbstore jeans that I was getting altered from The Denim Doctor today. Not had chance to properly inspect the work, will do when I get in from work.

I can confirm a sterling job has been done, good price too. May put pics up over weekend.

Got a pair of shrink to fit Samurais, however the waist is snug before any soak/shrinkage. If I dryclean them, will they shrink?

put a hanger in the waist and soak your denim, everything but the waist will shrink, if its still snug wear it damp for a little while, its easier to stretch jeans while they are soaked in water.
