up against my beater ubrandeds, which are 34, they are a half inch shorter dog. I'm good. I'll go elsewhere next time.

How do you know your Unbranded jeans are 34"? Because that's what they're tagged at?

Do you own a tape measure?

Perhaps, O brilliant and near-illiterate one, those two pairs of jeans have totally different rises and you should have accounted for that when you took them to the store to be hemmed.

omg. I can't believe i'm online midday. Yes, I own a tape measure. Yes i measured them. At first sight they looked short. I asked the guy @SE if he had one. They measured it out to 34. but at the wrong angle. I measured them @the house again. 33.5 or so. I'm kinda pissed. You'd be too. They are human, so whateves. they made a mistake. fuck it though. they're cut already. Not much anyone can do. I'm selling these now.

I'm trying to work with you here, but you're not helping.

Bring them into the store, we will measure them again in front of you, if they measure 33.5" we will pay you whatever it takes to replace them.

A half an inch is within tolerance I'd say. variables include high taut the tape measure is pulled, how taut the pants are pulled. Being half an inch from what you like just can't be the catastrophe you are making it out as. Slouch 'em. That will give you more than that.

I would like to point out that this client's true inseam is ~30" max.

I find inseam measurement can be subjective as it can vary depending on who's doing the measuring - is the leg straight/is it to the first seam of the crotch or the second/is the tape measure taut, etc - I find the safest way, when having jeans hemmed (as a customer) is to measure them myself, then state how much I want removed. That way there isnt really room for error.

I agree. I personally quote how much i want removed from the outseam because it's straighter

I had the iron hearts that i bought last week from se chainstiched to 34" and they are absolutely perfect

(just measured them with measuring tape)

while we are on this topic, i would just like to ask:

can i ship a pair of jeans to selfedge(sf or la) to be chainstitch hemmed?

the chainstitching policy on the website says that you guys will only accept jeans brought in person,

but i cant really make it to either location since i am in college right now.

Im about to buy another pair(From another user on this site) and i would love to know if i could just simply

ship the jeans to SE, get them hemmed and sent back. that would be perfect!

K - planning on getting some SE05BSPs soon. If I were to give them several hot soaks and hang dry in the sun each time, what would be the maximum shrinkage in waist, inseam and hem length be? I remember when I got BSPs many years ago, the waist was expected to shrink 1.5" (no it states 1"). It's the same denim as before am I not correct...

Is dude really complaining about .5 inches?? They're also offering to make it right so I don't see how pissed you can be at them? I mean they measured it in front of you and everything and you said "ok"..should've tried them on in store. And with an attitude like that I wouldn't want or could care less if you came back.

At least now you can learn from this..hopefully. Next time you take a pair in or mail a pair out..ask how they measure and use the same method to determine where you'd like them to be hemmed at.

I call bullshit on the kid because he's already got them up for sale and if he feels so strongly about being right he could just go make it right with kiya. Obviously the kid is fraudin' and just got butt hurt because he chose the wrong hem length or is having buyer's remorse or something.

Kiya's job would be great if it wasn't for (some of) the customers.

fraudin'? i dont think so. The difference is negligible to most of us, but it matters to this kid. he just went about complaing about it the wrong way. all of this could have been taken care of off the board. It doesn't make resolution any easier when people are pouring on the hate, even though he pretty much set himself up for it. The one time I had a negative customer service experience was with some d-bag at Simon miller. I posted about it after there was no resolution. In contrast, kiya is as generous a guy as any i've come across in the business and the only time i had an issue (minor) he was quick to handle it, no questions asked. issues are best left handled via pm's.

Thanks dude. It just didn't meet my expectations and yeah it does matter to me. I spent my hard earned money on this pair of jeans. I measured them so many times, lol. I ended up calling SESF and talked to kiya himself. He's cool. Explained to me that they measure the inseam pulled taut. That was the half inch difference. He also said they'd replace them if they didn't measure up. I'll probably end up stuck with these. Fuck it though, it's all good. It just burns me when people taunt and provoke on the internet. This is supposed to be a forum and I'm a dissatisfied customer. I had all the best intentions but people suck dude. My bad Kiya. I'll come through tomorrow.

      Worn probably 10-12 times, barely any fades. For those who've been around these forums for a long time, they remember how awesome these jeans were when they first came out.
      Retail was $375 USD. Looking for $185 USD OBO.
      Best way to contact me is [email protected]
      Waist: 31.5"
      Inseam: 31.5"
      Thigh: 11"
      Hem: 7.5"





      One of the most popular jeans we've carried since we opened was the first collaboration we did with Dry Bones and Superfuture two years ago. We've decided to expand on the theme of a forum based jean with a bigger project including Styleforum and a 22oz denim that Dry Bones have woven for this jean. 

      The SEXDBXSXS12 jean has been produced by Dry Bones, one of Japan's longest running vintage Americana style denim manufacturers. The jean is made up of a rope-dyed 22oz unsanforized selvedge denim consisting of a combination of Texas & San Joaquin Valley cotton fibers creating a rigid denim that's slightly hairy, but not slubby, because we requested that the denim not be singed and calendered. The indigo dyed yarn has a sulfur top to create a super dark indigo color that crocks fairly easily with normal wear. The jean has heavy-weight hickory striped pocket bags, military grade green rear pocket linings, coin pocket selvedge, cotton poly-core stitch, hidden rivets, and two leather patches. The Superfuture patch was designed by JimmyC of Superfuture and the Styleforum patch was designed by Brian SD, you can easily remove one of the two patches leaving the one you like better. The fit is a slim fit with with a bit of taper and a medium rise, graded to look great in all sizes.

      Superfuture, a website dedicated to the finer points of shopping, traveling, garments, and more was launched in 1999 by Wayne Berkowitz. Hailing from Australia, the website took on a life of it's own within a few years, and five years in was already home to one of the largest databases of information about garments, and to be more specific, denim.
      Superfuture offers the world a frequently updated set of traveling maps, a listing with reviews of over 1000 shops around the world which are "Superfuture Approved", a blog updated with cutting edge events around the world, and a forum called Supertalk which at times overshadows the other services Superfuture offers.

      Styleforum was founded in 2002 in reaction to the poorly run, corporation-owned, men's style discussion forums of the day. Founder Jeremy Jackson and his partner Fok-Yan Leung, who started posting on the forum as a way to procrastinate from writing his doctoral thesis, see Styleforum as a dive bar populated by guys who also happen to really like clothes, often to the point of obsession. A few discussion rooms have been added to the forum since 2002, discussing anything from travel to food, but these are still guys who want to be wearing the best clothes no matter what they are doing.

      This jean is limited to 250 pairs between our three stores, once sold out there will be no restocks.

      The jeans have not been hemmed or altered. Can take more accurate measurements upon request.

      IRON HEART 633s size 32 - imgur link photos taken by a window with natural light. 
       
      I've been wearing these for close to 2.5 months now. The waist has gotten a bit too big on me and I find that they fade too slowly. They're still more comfortable at 21oz. than most raw denim I've ever worn, though. 
       
      Whiskers are starting to break through, wallet fade is fairly clearly defined on the back left pocket, and while the comb wrinkles are fairly defined, there's almost no evo on the combs, knees, or thighs. These have so much life left in them that your wear will surely overshadow mine in the long run. 
       
      At 36" these are ready to be hemmed to your desires. I have not washed them since purchasing them. 
       
      Measurements (the [iron Heart](http://www.ironheart.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2835.0) way):  
      Waist: 17.5" across  
      Front Rise: 10.5"  
      Rear Rise: 15.5"  
      Thigh: 12.5"
      Knee (13" down from crotch seam): 8.75"  
      Leg Opening/Hem: 7.6"  
      Inseam: 36"  
       
      Asking **$200 OBO**.
