Leg Tapering Service
Leg Tapering Service available. We can taper your new or used jeans regardless of what brand it is. Don't take your jeans to the cleaners to get them altered. Not all industrial sewing machines are equal! Servicing is not outsourced to a third party. Work is done in-house on our machines to taper your jeans. The machines are tuned and calibrated to sew denim jeans. These are the same machines that construct all Railcar Fine Goods. We use all the correct color thread and thread sizes to match your jeans. Servicing is performed on the inseam of the jeans so the selvedge outseam is untouched. We can taper a traditional overlock inseam and a flat felled inseam. The Leg Tapering Service includes the chain stitch bottom hem to desired length at no extra cost.
