Williamsburg Garment Company
We revolutionized online chain-stitch hemming service and set a standard by making it faster, easier and relatively low-cost as compared to competitors.
$18 covers all shipping cost to-and-from our location from anywhere in the USA, no matter how many jeans or pants in the order. We email you a shipping label and return ship your jeans.
We service most all brands of jeans. As an example, our most serviced jeans are Levi's, followed closely by Gustin and Nudie jeans (because we can add the bartacks). The Flat Head, Iron Heart, Samurai, Oni Denim, Sugar Cane, and The Strike Gold fans love us because we can handle heavyweight denim. Collectors of other Japanese favorites like Pure Blue Japan, Momotaro Jeans, and Big John also trust us with their denim. American made regulars serviced include 3Sixteen, Brave Star, Railcar, Leftfield NYC, Tellason, Raleigh Denim, and Freenote Cloth. We also hem a great deal of Naked & Famous, Unbranded, Wrangler & Lee vintage jeans, and A.P.C.'s, often with the request to add regular-sized chain stitch hem.
Very few brands add bar tacking on the hems. Gustin denim using a red bar tack is one of those few brands that do. We think it is unnecessary and is more about branding or decoration, however, it does add an extra layer of protection from the stitch unraveling because the chain stitch is made to be easily pulled apart in one direction if you can grab it, just right, from the end.
Hemming service is usually 1-2 days. We do our bests to match the manufactured original aesthetic in hem size and thread color. Delivery times are extended around Holidays.
We know admirers of raw denim mostly avoid washing their jeans for as long as possible. That’s why we will accept denim that have been worn and soiled. However, please try ship your jeans to us relatively clean. We do reserve the right not to work on smelling soiled clothing. Please avoid sending jeans with lots of animal hairs by removing hairs before shipping.
If you do not have a way to precisely measure inseams, you can cuff, press or mark the desired length with tape or chalk. This will supersede your order form request. We usually contact you to clarify instructions.
We also offer drop-off service for those located in New York City, or visiting Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We share retail space with Brooklyn Denim Company, but have different staffs, prices and equipment. All walk-in alterations services are handled by Brooklyn Denim Co.; however, fans of our work can order via our website, then drop-off and pick-up at the store.
WGC did a very good job with my hemming. Very easy process to ship. Thanks!
Great service and communication. Really happy with the results. Can’t wait to purchase a pair of jeans gym Williamsburg but the jeans I have my eyes on are out of stock or unavailable in my size :(
Wow, this service was incredible! I bought a pair of heavy weight gustin jeans and they came with too much length. Found out about this through a Google search, sent it off on Tuesday and am now wearing the jeans, perfectly chain-stitch hemmed I might add, on Friday! The local tailor can't even do it that fast! Thank you Williamsburg Garment, I will be using your alteration services again, you can be sure of it!
I live in SF and we have a couple places that will do selvedge stitching, but I won’t send my jeans anywhere else. They hemmed to the perfect length and they don’t looked like they were ever touched! Best service, greats communication, and fast shipping.
They do an excellent job, best price , and are quick
Excellent service and communication. Quality work. And turn around was faster than expected. My new go to for any denim service!
Overall satisfied with the quality and price. The service is fast and efficient. Only slight criticism is I did not receive any updates on the status of the work.
Great service! Quick, helpful, and they did a great job!
Great service, beautiful stitching. I love the easy shipping back and forth. Was previously sending my pants to San Francisco. I'm thrilled to have finally found authentic chain-stitch on the East Coast.
