Visible (Lock) Stitch: 

A standard method that uses single stitching on both the interior and exterior. Depending on the length hemmed, traces of removed stitching may remain. In addition, distressed items will lose the distressing on the part that is hemmed.

User-added image

Hidden (Blind) Stitch:

A blind stitch is nearly invisible stitching for a neat look. We recommend this stitch with dressy pants like the Smart Ankle Pants for a clean look.  Blind stitch can not be used on Jeans or thick materials, If this stitch is not available on the product page, a Blind stitch is not available.

How do I measure the length?
Before you select your alteration, be sure to know your exact measurements, as we are unable to accept returns or exchanges for altered products.

To find the right measurement, begin by measuring a pair of pants that you already have to get an idea of the inseam length you’d like to select for alterations.

User-added image


Please measure from the center of your inseam (crotch) to the length you want the pants altered to. For example, if you select 70cm from the dropdown menu, the inseam to the hem measurement will be cut off at 70cm long.

After you note these measurements, please select your colour, waist size and length, and choose the type of  stitch type and length of the alteration you want for your bottoms.
