^Ahahaha sorry to hear that. Luckily, I haven't hemmed them yet. I might just go to the Levis store and just leave it there overnight.

I agree with this. Hem without originals are 11.20 (with tax) and they can get it done in an hour (they usually can do it in less). Stitch International is terrible, my hems weren't stitched straight and as a result the hems keep folding up.

Also, for rocks you don't need to hem with originals. The hems on the rocks are really simple and look exactly the same afterwards when you hem them without originals.

I've never had any jeans tailored from bootcut to straight leg though. Can anyone give a review on this? Thinking about doing this and I think any knowledge of this will help other users as well.

^He's saying that his jeans turned out great, and you agree but say the stitching is terrible? Not sure what you mean there.

I got my jeans tailored from a bootcut to a straight leg. Mainly because of the fact that the leg opening was so big. They turned out pretty good actually, you can barely tell that the tailor re-stitched/cut everything near the bottom/hems
You just have to make sure and check if your thigh/butt/waist area is perfect or else it will look weird.
I had to take it in a bit in the thigh area, just to give it a more lean look.
P.S. It was a pair of rocks if im not wrong

^how would you not know what brand your jeans are. :|

I hemmed mine today at Metrotown Alterations. Turned pretty good, they actually kept it a little longer than what I had asked for but I'm still happy. Also, finished within the hour.

Just to help out if anyones interested.

ABC Cleaners & Alterations in Crystal Mall charges me $8 for hem without original. Straight cash no tax.
Always straight stitching and shes a great tailor. You'll have to return in 3 days cause they are busy.
But the result was always good for me.

Now I go to another guy who lives closer to my place and charges $6 hem without original and $10 with original hem.
No tax and I get it back in 2-3days.
Just received 3 pairs of 7FAM from him all good.

Good luck!

That's Stitch International and judging by people's responses here, the reviews are mixed. That place is however cheaper than most tailors.
