Custom Inseam Chain Stitch Hem Service

If you need your selvage denim hemmed to a custom inseam then look no further. There is only one way to chain stitch a selvedge denim hem and that's on a folder equipped Union Special 43200g. Why you ask? These machines create a desirable roping effect on the hem which is actually caused by a 

feed differential defect. What this means is that the fabric is metered through the folder (which feeds the hem to the needle) at a different speed than the feed dogs (on the bottom pulling the fabric) causing a push/pull effect on the hem which is what ultimately causes the roping effect. This roping effect is one of the characteristics that make vintage denim so desirable to collectors and the reason why these machines are so sought after now. The 43200g was first manufactured in 1939 and was phased out in the 80's. Because they were know for this mechanical defect a lot of them were abandoned, stripped for parts and exported to places such as North Africa and South East Asia. To find one in such good working condition as we have is truly rare.

NOTE: Please allow for 7 WORKING days from the time your order is processed. Hemmed jeans are FINAL SALE.

SIZING CHART

  

The comparison to LEVI'S fit styles is merely a reference point for those unfamiliar with how our jeans fit since there is no industry sizing standard. Most people have at some point in their lives owned a pair of LEVI'S and is the greatest common fit denominator when trying to gauge jean sizing. Our pattern blocks are unique to Brave Star and have been developed and fine tuned over the years with our head pattern maker and could feel completely different on your body in comparison to a pair of LEVI'S due to fabric weight & composition. One other factor to keep in mind is that the single pair of LEVI'S that we purchased here in Los Angeles to measure and feature on our size chart is not necessarily indicative of how that same style of LEVI'S fits on you when you purchased it since we have found quite a large variance in their sizing depending on where the jean was manufactured, the weight of the fabric and the wash applied to the jean.                                        

Fit Model is wearing size 31 in all fits.

Please allow for a +/- 1/4" tolerance in the waistband vs listed spec.
