    Tailoring Pants



    I had a pair of pants with a bad fit that I would like to get Tailored. Problem is I never had a pair of pants Tailored before. There a couple inches two short at least and they are pretty baggy from the knees down. What should I tell them to do?

    You mean they are a few inches two short length wise? They can't do anything about that unless they were previously hemmed.


    For the bagginess you can have them adjust that though it can get pricey.

    Dress for style, live for results.

      Instead of taking a pair of pants that don't really work at all, take a pair that fit pretty well already but just need a little altering to make them perfect.

        You can't "like" a post on these forums, but if you could I would "like" Nick's post above. Good advice for clothes in general.

          couple of things:


          If they're a few inches too short, you probably won't have enough extra fabric under the cuff to take them down. If you do take them down, & these pants have been pressed or ironed, you'll probably wind up with a horizontal line around the cuff, where the leg used to end.


          Taking in pants from the knee down is pretty easy. Here's a basic shortcut method that I've used:


          -flip pants inside out, lay them out straight on a table

          -line up & overlay better fitting pants

          -using fabric pencil or marker, trace out along outer leg seam, how you'd want to take in the legs, all the way down to the cuff; the line you draw is the new outer seam

          -make sure new seam line blends into the old

          -pin new seam line in place

          -sew

          -cut off excess fabric, sew edges

            I had a good-fitting pair of LL Bean khakis that I got from an outlet a few years ago and rarely wore because they just were too wide below the knee. For $10, I had them slimmed below the knee and now I wear them a whole lot more. It's an affordable alteration but it can really transform the way you wear a pair of pants. Really want to emphasize Nick's post though: I did this on a good-fitting pair.
