I have a pair of TR jeans and they are too long length-wise. I have to roll them a little when I wear them with certain sneakers and I don't like doing that. I heard that your not suppose to take them to just any tailor b/c these jeans have a certain fit that can be ruined if they're not tailored right. So, where can I take them?

There is probably a good tailor in the city that you live in. Are they boot cut or flared? If so, then you definitely have to be careful. Just make sure that the sew the original piece back on. I don't think it's going to mess the fit up any, I've had this done to True Religions, Rock and Republics, etc.

Did you buy them at Nordstroms by chance?

My boyfriend gets his TR and Sevens done there and they do a great job. They do that other kind of alteration where they take if off and sew it back on.

Just make sure where ever you do go does that, and not the typical thing many tailors do of just kind of cuffing the pants. That will ruin it for sure.

Take them to a tailor and ask if they can do an "orginal hem".

Hopefully you bought your True Religions at Nordstrom. They sell them there along with tons of other jeans and you get them altered at the store. Nordstrom has a tailor shop at every store and they do original hem finishes which is the best way to go.

I didn't buy them in Nordstrom; I bought them in Saks. I'm not sure if they have the same tailoring service that Nordstrom has. Does anybody know?

Call them as it may vary from state to state, but I'm almost positive Saks will have tailoring services.

I agree, go to a tailor who will keep the original hem on. I went to one like that & he had me try on the pants & pinned them with me in them. That way I could see exactly how they would fit when they were done.
They turned out great & look like they came that way. It only cost $16 too!
