Local Jean Repairs

I did a quick search on "repair"s and repairs in the denim thread and i couldn't find anything local.

i was thinking of sending my stuff to denimtherapy but i'd rather try something local first.

my problem is my crotch, i have flat feet and i pronate so my pants always wear there first.

thanks guys

+1 for Albert's. Rates are pretty cheap considering it's in downtown.

'woob' used Ylium in North Vancouver, BC - Weblocal.ca. Apparently they can do darning repairs which I assume Denim Therapy does.

If you want another option for mail-in repair try Rail Car Fine Goods, Denim Services

No. No one in Vancouver offers chain stitching. The closest place to get it done is Blue Owl in Bellevue, WA.

Based on the before and after I'd say that Albert did a good job there.

I just took 3 pairs of jeans to the place in Metro by Superstore. 40 dollars for 3 hems and a repair. Hopefully they do a good job, they said the repair should be invisible.
