Regular hem for $11 before tax? Sounds pricey, I believe the place at empire in richmond charges about $5 for regular hem.

Depends what your meaning of Cheap is. Slimming jeans from the knee down is called tapering, it usually costs around $25 (unless I'm paying too much) I get all my R&R tapered because most of them are bootcut. I get them tapered at L.N Tailoring which is on Fraser Highway if you live near there.

^That is so true, the idiots there rarely check. There are a few people who have worked there for quite a while though and I wouldn't be so confident with them

I think it helps to bring a boy's co bag with you haha, I probably have some.

Whats RCSS? Real Canadian Super Store ? Is it called Super Stitch Corporation ? Would you know how much it would cost to patch some thinning material ? I'm scared it'll rip & create a bigger hole

This is the place I go to. It may be a bit overpriced but it's close by and has always done great work on my Guess jeans.
