    Just taking up the hem a bit. I'll take it to the tailor that's the same that makes chipps ties, and have a good denim practice, will use original hem etc.

    Ah, nice. I was just reading about it and it was said if the tailor doesn't have experience with that it will look effed up when cuffed. Not sure I trust my small town tailor enough... I'll stick with my beefy cuff

    I've been breaking in my first pair of raw jeans as well, and just recently washed them had them hemmed by Paleo Denim here in Austin. They use a vintage chain stitch machine, charge $25, and you can ship them to and fro.

    They did an an excellent job, quickly, on mine and I'll be using them again to take up a pair I just picked up from a forum member here.

    Details here.

    I'm sure some denim heads would scoff at how I'm breaking in mine. More of an experiment than anything, but hopefully they'll come out nicely. I am due for a wash and hem sometime soon... that place looks legit, and way far south on Manchaca! I lived off of Manchaca for a bit during grad school, before it was cool

    @hornsup84 If you're in NYC you can have a chain stitch hem done at Blue in Green or Self Edge. Both places specialize in selvedge denim. To be honest though the chain stitch is somewhat overrated. I wouldn't get the original hem put back on either as it tends to look pretty bad after a while. From my experience a standard single needle lockstitch is the best.
