Where can i get my shit hemmed? If i got to a regular place will they do anything to the selvedge?
Just about any tailor can hem a pair of jeans. If you want it done really nicely, you'll have to find a place that does chainstitching. If you can't find a place locally, I would recommend the Denim Doctors at the Hollywood Trading Company, they do a real good job, and they accept mail-ins.
Hemming doesn't affect the selvage at all, even if you have it done at a regular place.
how much will my skulls 5010XX 6x6 shrink if I dry it on high heat in the dryer after a machine wash?
if it matters, its the old cotton from couple years back. theyve been worn in for a while and I think I lost some weight in the waist. Trying to shrink the waist about half an inch or something. never washed before either.
If you've never soaked or washed before, you can just machine wash the jeans. With Skulls, the denim is partially sanforized, so you'll get some shrinkage (about 1" in the waist) just by washing. No need to tumble dry if you are just trying to shrink by a half-inch or so.
