Rene was preparing for a wedding and while not realizing his dress pants would not be appropriately hemmed, he sought me out, hoping I could fit him in to have it done by the end of the week. Here, the pant length was 8 1/2″ too long and still not hemmed. So, off came 7″, providing me with the hem allowance needed to acquire is 28″ inseam.

Truth be told, I am a thrift store shopper, yet prefer shops that actually help out their community or the small business shops who are particular about what they take in. Although it is not always easy to find men’s clothing at a thrift store, there are times I score in finding ones my husband will wear. Since he does not like to wear long-sleeved shirts, I try to find him replacements that I am willing to hem the sleeves for him, whether via thrift stores or regular retail. Other clients are the same way, in that long-sleeved shirts are not comfortable for them.
