I just got back from a thrift store and bought a pair of barely worn Nudie Thin Finn size 29x32, however there is a problem. The previous owner decided to hem these and the bottom of the jeans don't crease since they folded the bottoms and sewed them up. I've added pics on the bottom. Can theses jeans be un-hemmed?

Thanks guys!

See why they won't crease? they're folded too thick.

1) nice deal!

2) This is what you call "fold-hemming", all you have to do is pull out the thread that's holding them up and you'll be good to go. Might want to iron out the creases at the bottom from the folds, too.

I shouldn't have done it myself. Half way through unstiching the yellow thread, I was doing it wrong.

I think I'll just go to self edge and pay them $25 to un-hemm them and also have them restitch the the parts that I messed up.

Anyone know of a place in the Bay Area that does the same but cheaper than self-edge?

I'm not from that area but I have some words of advice nonetheless.

I would probably use Self Edge irrespective of whether I could find someone that little bit cheaper.

Personally from experience, I find Nudie Jeans to be different to a lot of pants that tailor unhem/take out and I have had a disaster or two, which in the longer term got fixed up at a greater cost.

My advice is to go straight to a Nudie stockist and see if they have alteration services. I feel if you dont get the job done right first, you will be paying a lot more to fix it up later.

Good luck!

Any tailor in your area should be experienced enough to do it for you.
Shouldn't cost more than 10 dollars or so.
I could be wrong.
