What is? Plus, other details were answered.

We added a dropdown for inseam type because, when tapering jeans from the inseam (the proper approach), the inseam's design influences how long it takes to taper jeans and pants. Contrary to lockstitching, which hinders the ability to disassemble the garment, chain stitching enables rapid disassembly. Garments made with basic lockstitching require us to handpick the inseam sewing apart, which can easily add an hour or more to the operation. For example, we found a few brands that typically have lockstitched inseams: Tellason and Paige. You should anticipate paying a higher price to tailor these branded jeans.

People frequently ask, "What is bar tacking?" Our typical response is that it is the zigzag-like stitch found on belt loops and other spots to lend strength or support to garments. Some brands, such as Gustin and Nudie, employ it as a branding detail, but it is not required for chain-stitched hems. However, it can help keep the chain stitch from unraveling.

    Good to Go

    Alterations done well. They took a bit longer than what I paid for via rush service due to a lot of orders, but they made it right with a $25 dollar credit.

    Amazing service

    Needed a pair of 21oz Iron Heart denim tapered and hemmed and the work was impeccably done. I could not recommend Williamsburg Garment Co more highly for denim alterations! I have since brought them several more pairs of Japanese denim for alterations. If you live in the area, stop by the shop. Maurice is awesome, has great style and gave me good advice on the optimal length, taper and cuffing options. He also makes his own jeans and they look beautiful!

    Denim Tapering Service

    This is the second time I’ve used Williamsburg to taper a pair of 25oz Iron Heart jeans. Both times they have done an outstanding job. This time is wanted them a little looser fitting than the first and they were spot on once again and I couldn’t be happier. I will only use them for my selvedge tapering going forward.
