Freezer method? Heard it doesn't really help in getting rid of smells. Maybe try putting it in a plastic bag and frebreeze it then leave it there so it soaks in? If not you might have to re wash lol

Supposed to "freeze" and kill all the bacteria on the jean which would ultimately minimize the bad odors.

Thats pretty interesting. Do they use the old school Singer machine like Selfedge? Or better yet any pix of the repairs?

Self Edge is Denim

Thanks!

Both pairs of jeans are dead now. I ruined them beyond repair while longboarding last spring, so no pics :/ .

I don't know what machine they used, but I suppose you can always give them a call for more info.

I quite literally got home around an hour and a half ago from getting my jeans hemmed at Albert's Tailor downtown. It took around 10 minutes and cost me $9.

Depends what you're looking for.
A while ago I just wanted a pair of plain grey slip ons. Couldn't care less about the brand. Picked them up on sale there for $25

Super noob here.

I always get perfect sizing for my jeans but picked up a cheap pair of nice jeans the other day but it's boot cut
I know the hemming question has been asked but Is there a way I can get the boot cut converted to skinny jeans? If so where and how much?
