Do you have a hard-to-find waist size? Is a 33 a tad too big but a 32 is a bit snug? They can bring in the waistband just enough to ensure a comfortable fit.
Have the legs cut to your exact desired length.
This isn't standard, but their tailors can taper the jeans at the ankle for an additional fee and about two weeks to turnaround.
The tailors expertly remove the jean's hem, trim the excess length and then reattach the hem to maintain the original look.
It's one of the most important factors to consider when buying jeans: the fit. There's a certain quality of ownership a man possesses for his favorite denim when they fit just right—especially when a well-made pair can last you years. Which is why entrepreneur Liz Kammel has built a business around helping guys achieve that with ZipFit. Using a tech-savvy approach to traditional tailoring, the Chicago-based retailer (and its fully-functioning web shop) offers a lineup of premium denim brands and promises the perfect fit.
The process begins by inputting your body measurements and personal style preferences. You're soon presented with a range of jeans to choose from. Find the pair that works for you and then you're able to have them altered to your exact measurements. Want to go beyond the standard set of alterations and have a slight taper added near the ankle for a cleaner, more modern look? Their in-house team of tailors can accommodate you for an additional fee. Besides that, the entire process is free of charge and so is the shipping. You simply pay for the denim. In short: it's an easy and affordable way to secure a quality pair of jeans with a personalized fit.
