How a Hem is Performed
Watch how our in-house tailor Reiko expertly handles an original Hem.
She first cuts off the cuff at the length specified. Next, she prepares the cuffs to be sewn. She then reattaches the cuff to the legs. The Pants are now at the correct length all while maintaining the exact original hem as it came from the factory.
Sizing and Fitting your clothes
As a side note, for alterations regarding the fit of clothes, please indicate your specific measurements and hem requests either by phone/email, placing a note inside of your pickup bag, or coming into our Danville or Alameda location for a complimentary sizing from our staff.
