If I've already spent close to $300 on a pair of jeans, I'd rather spend a little extra to have someone tailor it exactly the way I want it than to pay someone to do it a different way and then regret it afterwards, like you mentioned you did.
Whoever Albert is, he would have had to tailor through the inseam, not the outseam, to leave the selvage untouched. If you taper on the outseam, you have to either make the selvage line wider or remove part of it.
again, i have no regrets of tapering the jeans the way it was done. if it's done then it's done
i'm not gonna QQ over it nor is there a need to. try and read exactly what i said in my last post before you make another remark. i'm not planning to repeat myself.
and also, just fyi. a ticket to LA from Vancouver is more expensive than buying a new pair of Skulls and altering them again. food for thought
so you do your thing and i'll do mine. i dgaf
