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

Drop-Off Service

We also offer drop-off service for those located in New York City, or visiting Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 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. 

  • Price is per jean. Shipping is $18, no matter how many jeans hemmed
  • Ship cost include shipping TO & FROM your address in the USA
  • Maximum lost / damage package insurance is $100 unless insurance is purchased.

    Great service, quick turn around. Overall great experience. The only thing i would change is having an option to where the stitch is quarter inch from the bottom of the pants instead of half an inch, but then again thats my fault for not being specific. I would definitely use their service again!

    Quick turn around but it was not done right.

    Posted by Thanh Nguyen on 22nd Oct 2020

    Very quick turn around, within 10 days after sent in, but paid for red contrast to match the original of Gustin and get the yellow instead. Someone need to QC before shipping back. Disappointed.

    I hardly ever post reviews online but this service deserves it. In addition, the turnaround was quick and customer service was awesome. Living in a small town it was impossible to find someone to hem jeans correctly. Williamsburg Garment has earned a loyal customer.

    If you need to alter your jeans you better get the chainstitch hemming. It’s the only way that will allow your jeans to look just like when you bought them. Any other way and it’ll never look right.

    The mailing all went smoothly, and the work is immaculate. I'm very happy with the work, and will definitely be a return customer. This was definitely higher quality work than I have had done elsewhere in NYC. Thank you!

    Posted by Ben C on 1st Oct 2020

    Beautiful chainstitch and bar-tack on my heavyweight, 21oz raw selvedge denim. Very well done. Sending them in and receiving them back finished took just over a week. Not bad! 10/10 would do again.
