Tips: How to measure inseam & mark jeans length

Customized Measurements

Feel free to supply your own customized measurements. As example, some customers want the knee area a certain width, or the width thigh adjusted. We will do our best best follow your instructions, even if they don't make sense to us, so be sure that your measurements will work. There are no refunds. In many cases we will contact you to confirm special request.

Disclaimer: We do not take orders for jeans with extra wide flat-felled seams or multiple thread stitching construction, as seen in most True Religion or Buckle jeans.

Dirty & Hairy Pants

    Tapering Service

    Posted by Joe on 23rd Jun 2021

    My denim was tapered to the exact specifications that I had requested, and completed in a timely manner. I would highly recommend WGC for any denim needs, and plan on using them again in the future.

    Excellent experience!

    Posted by Casey on 19th Nov 2020

    I’m so happy with the fit of my jeans and the craftsmanship that went into the alterations. Turnaround time was fast, communication was great and Maurice was helpful as this was my first go at denim customizations. I’m looking forward to using this service again and supporting Williamsburg Garment; the attention to detail is remarkable. Thank you for an excellent experience!

    I sent 11 jeans for full tapering (flair/bellbottom to narrow leg) They turned out AMAZING!! great communication - while it took a few days longer - it was because they did a very detailed an d professional job. If you have high-end jeans and want them narrowed - while retaining the hgh quality - this is the company to use!!

    Excellent work

    Posted by Erik on 11th May 2020

    I sent in a pair of raw denim jeans that did not fit as expected. I had low expectations and just hoped they fit a little better. They came back perfect! The staff communicated well to ensure my expectations, and the turnaround time was quick.

    Excellent Taper

    Posted by Ian Cornejo on 26th Dec 2019

    Williamsburg did an excellent job tapering my 19oz selvedge jeans. They knew to taper from the inseam and they even handled a double felled seam. On top of that, they were very quick. Highly recommend.
