tapering raw denim

fellow comrades,

just copped a pair of N&F weird guys. I'm looking to get the calves tapered and was wondering if anyone had some good previous experiences with tailors that do good work on raw denim? a low price would be a bonus, but my primary concern by far is the quality of the work done. thanks in advance!

a good tailor isn't cheap. remember that.


by the way, when you use the term "copped" it is typically in reference to drugs or theft, or some kind of illegal transaction. i know it sounds way cooler than "my mom bought me...." but, NOW YOU KNOW.

Oakridge has done my R&R's... pretty good. Pricey though.

lol really? me and my buddies use it synonymously with bought, or purchased... never thought it had an illicit connotation attached to it. anyways, i called up a friend who rocks a bunch of hipster-wear, says all the best raw denim tapers work downtown.

a great place for tapering raw denim is

Albert's Tailor Alterations

I don't trust many places to know how to taper your jeans where they don't destroy the selvedge line. But I brought my Samurai's in there and the guy knows exactly what I want. Apparently Dutil sends their stuff there too.
