It is easy to find the jeans of your perfect taste and style, but it is difficult to find those that are available in your exact length and fit.
It is important to buy jeans which perfectly match your size and fit because a pair of jeans which is either too loose on you or too tight for you, looks nothing but awkward.
There are a number of brands that manufacture jeans of various types and styles.
Mens black jeans are available in various sizes and fits, but still you might not be able to find them in your exact size because only a few brands offer sister sizes.
Therefore, there is always a problem with length and fit.
In a situation like this where you have to alter your jeans, one best option is to take them to tailor's shop to have it fixed according to your exact length.
If you are budget minded and you want to save the tailor's bill, then the easiest way is to learn how to alter your jeans.
If you have bought a pair of jeans that seems to be a little too long for your length, you can simply alter it according to your wish and size.
You might be thinking that it would be a difficult task to alter the jeans, since they are made of thick material so the stitching could be a problem and alteration would also require you to have matching thread color which might not be always available to you.
However, it is not as difficult a job as it may seem to be.
All you need to have is the right material and a good sewing machine.
In order to start with your alteration, you need to have the following items: Scissors Matching threads (thick in quality as denim demands) Powerful sewing machine to do denim stitching Measuring tape to measure the desired length Two pairs of jeans: the one that has to be altered and the one which has a perfect length To find the length which is perfect for you, measure the inseam of the jeans that you feel is an ideal length for you.
Inseam includes the measurement of the area from crotch to the bottom of the leg.
Then, you need to take the pair of jeans that require alteration and measure it to the same length as your first pair of jeans.
After that, put a mark on the place where you have to cut the extra length.
Leave one inch extra for the hem.
Make the hem thick by taking ½ inch twice.
Stitch the hem with the help of the machine and make sure that it is equal on both the legs.
