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

We revolutionized online chain-stitch 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.

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, 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.

    Lightning fast service and excellent work. There was literally no telling that the jeans had even been hemmed, other than beiing shorter! Thread matches were exact. This is an amazing service...thank you.

    Great work, and Maurice makes it very easy to ship the jeans to him. Since I live in a rural area with nary a chainstitch expert around, I will absolutely be sending him more items in the future!
