Down Sizing Service
Down Sizing Service

Did you lose weight? Or are your jeans stretched out more then expected? We can down size your jeans. What we do is more then just an alteration, we do a full rebuild of the upper portion of your jeans, please note this does not change the mid hip section of the jean, just the waistband. We remove the waistband, belt loops, patch, and original labels and reshape the top waist portion of the jeans so your waistband isnt loose. Then the original waistband is installed. No alteration darts or cuts are made. Everything gets rebuilt, not altered, on the original jeans seams. With this type of rebuild, you wont lose any integrity of the jeans. We can do any brand of jeans. If you have a Railcar jean that needs to be down sized we will use the exact same fabric as we have it in stock.

NOTE: Jeans MUST be freshly washed. We WILL NOT work on dirty jeans. If your jeans are dirty we will send the jeans back to you un-serviced for a refund minus the actual return shipping cost. Using Febreeze or another type of spray deodorizer does't qualify as being washed.

Don't take your jeans to the cleaners to get your alterations done! We fix many of their mistakes all the time. Save the time and money and let us do it correctly. It takes many different styles of industrial sewing machines tuned and designed to work on denim to perform these services. You wouldn't take your car to the transmission shop to work on the body!

Please read carefully below:
  • Use what ever service you prefer, except for UPS, to ship your jeans to the below address with your order number and brand of jeans (hand written note is just fine). It's that easy. Keep your tracking number for your reference. When your jeans arrive and we have the jeans unpackaged and checked into Railcar denim services your online status will change from Pending to Pending Shipment. It may take a day or two to process in jeans depending on incoming workload. We are not responsible for lost packages in transit by carrier or international customs fees.
  • Jeans must be in clean condition.
  • The original button can not be reused for the downsizing service, it will be replaced with a Railcar button. We do not recommend sizing down over two inches as waistband to hip proportions will be too drastic.
  • When your service is completed a tracking number will be emailed to you when we print your return shipping label here at the workshop. Please allow some time for the tracking number to update as the carrier needs to scan it in.
