bay area folks where do you go to hem your jeans?

  1. i want to hem my jeans with original hem. any suggestion where i should take them to? i've heard horror stories of jeans being ruined after taking them in for alteration so i want to make sure i take to places where they know what they are doing. i live in san jose btw. thanks!
  2. If you buy them from Nordstrom-- they will do it for free!
  3. The lady who did in-house alteration for Escada (Santana Row before they closed) pointed me to this place on Forest St, behind Valley Fair. I've never been but you might check them out. I can't remember the name though but it's the only tailoring place on Forest St close to Nordstrom.
