Good place for hemming jeans

I got a few pairs of RRs and TRs that needs to be hemmed. Anyone recommend a good place for this?

Stitch International is about $6+tax (or at least they were last time I was there).

The place in Lougheed is about the same. The lady there gets bitchy though (in my experience) if you want same day service.

The asian guy inside the Levis Jeans store in Metro did a good job hemming my dress pants. Quick and cheap. First time there though...

Cosign that. I got my RnR's done there, they look perfect. gonna bring my TR's and all my other jeans over there from now on

original hem is $15 btw, not $6. And I had to wait 2 days for them before I could pick them up

regardless though, very nice quality work

Had 4 pairs done @ Stitch International in Metrotown. Top notch work, my jeans came back really nice. Had 1 normal hem, 2 original and 1 "Boysco" hem. The Boysco hem was for my TR Super T. Yeah, a bit on the expensive side but I rather pay a little more knowing the quality of work is going to be good than to cheap out and have someone f-up my expensive jeans.
