One of the things that we pride ourselves on at D&B Tailors is making sure you look great in whatever you wear. A common question we get is about a difference between original and regular hem. Too often someone takes a garment in to get hemmed, only to realize that the garment now looks different…
This is why D&B Tailors focuses on preserving the original integrity of the garment through the use of Original Hem. In other words, we make your clothing look the same while ensuring it fits you better than before!
What can D&B Tailors hem for you?
- Wedding Gowns
- Pants & Jeans
- Anything you need really 🙂
Original Hem: is cutting and replacing the original bottom and then the original hem is sewn back on the bottom (the seam is opened, placed over the cut jean bottom, and sewn back in place). In this way, the jean retains any kind of fading or wavy texture at the hem, so it looks like it did when it was bought at the store.
Regular Hem: is cutting off the extra length, making a fold, and sewing a basic hem. The hem will not retain any details of the original hem, nor have the wavy look that most jean hems have. On most jeans, the lack of hem detail makes them look obviously altered.
Here Are Some Examples of The Differences Between Original And Regular Hems.
