If you cannot hem jeans yourself or dont want to invest in a sewing machine: Hemming a pair of jeans is a fairly simple alteration. Any decent alteration shop or one attached to a drycleaners should be able to do it. Do insist on getting the jeans hemmed with original hems from the full-length pair -that preserves the beauty of the distressing/fading on the pair at the hem. Make sure you go to a good alteration place. Check out yelp.com for reviews/experiences of other customers who used the alteration place. In general, you should be able to tell from visiting the shop (if theyre doing a good enough job thy will have enough business), if they'll do an ok job. You should expect to pay $10-$20 for the service depending on where you live. There are also alteration stores at several malls, but they tend to be a bit expensive.
