fair enough question, cant give you a specific tailor but everywhere will do even dry cleaners that offer alterations… shouldnt cost more than about a tenner id of thought

ruben my good man, no worries if it's too much effort, BUT. Anychance you could take a pic with the clawmarks on, i wanna know what the 17cm hem looks like on somebody. Btw, do the non dry diors have a 38 leg?

I'll do a few tonight eent.

I think they're more like a 35 leg but I'll check that as well.

hey all, i've been in the need of new dry jeans, i was wondering what kind of jeans would be suited for me, it has to be a bit loose, but i don't want it to be to thick denim, so i can wear it in the summer with just a simple tee or something, anyone who can recommend something? (no dior)

Get them to taper from the inseam, not the outseam. From what I can remember SS are selvedge? and you don't want them removing the selvedge…

that happened to me once after i had specificly told them not to remove the selvedge part Evil

they had to cut some of the sevedge strip thing from higher up the leg and stick it back down the bottom, sounds dodge but they did a good job of it in the end Smiling
