Anyone had their jeans chain stitch hemmed by Rivet & Hide before? They any good?

might be old news but when i was in american classics at the weekend i heard that a guy who works in the levi store (probably the lvc store off carnaby street) has a chain stitching machine. might be worth a london fuker chasing up.

Son of a stag have a chain stitch machine and the service / pricing is very good, but I suppose if centraaaaal (RIP) is more convenient than Brick Lane thas alright

Also a new store has opened in parsons green by appointment. Nice selection of Japanese denim and offer a chin stitching service. It's called rivet and hide.

Got my first pair of raws - pair of unbrandeds, do I need to soak them before I send them off to get the leg shortened? I hear the leg might shrink on raws after a wash, don't wanna end up with a pair of denim capri pants.

my apc's shrunk maybe 1-2" in length.
would soak them before hemming. might be a good idea anyway considering unbranded is pretty stiff and uncomfortable even with 2 months wear (wearing mine right now and they are still pretty stiff overall).

ok cheers, hot soak or cold soak? also is that 2 months solid wear?
21 May 2013 16:46
hot soak might shrink them in the waist as well. have not soaked mine (is it a bad idea to soak them with 2 months of wear? would love if they soften up a bit more) yet!
and yeah, 2 months of solid wear. have worn them every day if possible (some too warm days inbetween where i had to switch them with something lighter and breathier)
21 May 2013 16:47
cold it is then, i sized down already. what fit did you go for?
22 May 2013 11:20
I soaked mine before wearing, but they still shrunk 1-2 inches (APC PS indigo raw)

Boom I live near Parsons Green will give them a go!

Any decent washed/distressed jeans about? Not too light.

Looking for the same R. Ain't found anything I like though.
Did you get those W&H jeans a while back, the bleach out wash I think it was called.
22 May 2013 13:54
Yeah but not 100% what I'm after. Been looking for literally years.
22 May 2013 14:03
Fancy selling them? Pretty much the wash I'm after but can't find.

Will have a look at them later.
