Chainstitch Hemming

We hem all brands of jeans purchased anywhere in the world using a vintage Union Special 43200G chainstitch machine. A hem done on a 43200G is one of those key details that can make or break a pair of jeans for many denim heads. The reason is the roping effect caused by a slight defect in the mechanism so the top and bottom part of the fabric feed through at different tension.

Please note the specific item(s) in the comments section when checking out.

We require that all garments be washed and unworn before they are shipped to us - NO EXCEPTIONS.
