    Altering Chinos - Break in first?



    Hey guys, I just picked up some Jcrew bedford chinos

    and I was wondering should they be worn a few times

    or washed before bringing them in to get tailored?

    - I know this is the rule of thumb w/ jeans

    I would wash them before getting them tailored, just to see what they'll wear like post-wash (which I assume is when you'll be wearing them, mostly). Don't want to over tailor and realize it only after you post-tailor wash. Not sure if wearing a few times is necessary, given that I don't think chinos change as much as jeans can.

      thx horns for the advice. As far as jeans goes

      do you wash and wear prior to altering also?

        I haven't altered jeans in a while -- the Bonobos I've purchased in the last year fit me perfectly, other than a hem (which I've let go and just rolled as of late... may do that sometime soon tho). I wash everything but dry clean items prior to tailoring. Never done the wear for jeans on purpose; the jeans I had altered a few yrs ago were already broken in before I realized I should get them tailored.
