Trouser/Jeans length adjustment - advise needed

Post by jack2012 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 3:13 pm

Hi,

What is best/ cheap way to get trouser/jeans length adjustment? When we go to any store to buy jeans/trouser, most of the time the length is not what we need. So, normally how people deal with this in Finland? In Dubai, if we buy jeans then shops/store offer free trouser adjustment.

kiitos

Some shops offer length adjustment at an additional cost.

This article has price estimates from 2005, so it's likely that the prices have gone up. The first chart is for sewing shops and the second for in-shop services. https://yle.fi/aihe/artikkeli/2005/10/2 ... mpelijalla

But I guess many people either have a sewing machine or know someone who has one, and do it themselves. Or wear cuffed jeans.

Or are happy with the 30", 32", 34" selection. Frankly I let my jeans be the length they came in and bother only with more formal trousers.

are the trousers too long or too short? for me the trousers in Finland are too short so I buy them from old navy in the USA where they have 36" leg. Even with shipping and import tax they are still cheaper than in Finland.

There are loads of online stores within EU, from which one can get just the brand/model and desired dimensions. The local shops usually have a limited range in stock (and what they have, that's it, they won't get you anything else), also often there aren't many pairs of the same (e.g. jeans), in case you've found just what you like and would like to have several.
