Order chain stitch hemming online for any brand of denim jeans & jean style constructed pants

We revolutionized online chainstitch hemming service and set a standard by making it faster, easier and relatively low-cost as compared to competitors.

Only $18 Shipping To-And-From in the USA

$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.

Canada & International

1-Way shipping is available. Customers outside of the USA must ship items for alterations to us at their own cost. We provide return shipping only.

RUSH Service

For RUSH SERVICE ordered online, Same-Day-Service depends on the time that jeans arrive, we would need a 2-hour window for service & shipping (Use Express Shipping ONLY). For online orders, we would advise online RUSH NEXTDAY as the most reliable. We do not guarantee SAME DAY RUSH for shipped orders. PLEASE WRITE "RUSH" ON THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR BOX!

Brands Serviced

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, Roy Denim, 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.

Disclaimer: We do not take orders for jeans with extra wide flat-felled stitching or multiple thread stitching construction often found on jeans like True Religion.

Bar Tacked 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.

 The hem of Gustin jeans feature a red back to strengthen chain stitching

Quality & Fast Service

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.

Dirty Denim

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.

Measuring Inseam

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.

  • You cannot make inseam longer than the original length
  • This option is to make jeans shorter

All walk-in alterations services are handled by Brooklyn Denim Co.; we share retail space with Brooklyn Denim Company, but have different staffs, prices and equipment. However, fans of our work can order via our website, then drop-off and pick-up at the store.

    I couldn't recommend this service enough. I sent Maurice a pair of APCs with Rush service -- sent in the jeans Tuesday and received them with an identical to original hem on the finished product Friday afternoon. I will definitely be a repeat customer!

    Outstanding service

    Posted by R. Gutierrez on 2nd Dec 2020

    WGC promptly answered a question I had after I had placed my hemming order. The chain stitching on my jeans looks beautiful and is exact to the measurements I requested. I shipped my jeans from Boston. Most likely you spent $$$ on your jeans so why settle for bad quality tailors? I will definitely continue to send my jeans to WGC in the future. Thanks to all the hardworking professionals at WGC.
