Chain-Stitch Hemming Service with a Union Special 43200G
If you are purchasing denim from Blue Owl and would like hemming, simply add a note to your denim at time of purchase with your desired length - the service is free. Only order this service if you are shipping denim purchased elsewhere to Blue Owl for hemming. Please send us an e-mail to confirm your hemming request after ordering.
Chain-stitching is a hemming method that chains two threads together to create a more durable and flexible hem with the desired "roping" effect after being washed or soaked. The Union Special is one of the original machines used to create a chain-stitch hem on denim, and the Union Special 43200G we use is the second generation of the model from the 1950s. When possible we use the same thread used by the manufacturer. Otherwise, we do our best to match the thread color. Same-day hemming is also offered in our showroom for Seattle area customers.
- $25 per a pair of denim (plus any associated shipping fees and sales tax) for denim purchased elsewhere
- Hemming is free on denim purchased at Blue Owl, but hemmed denim cannot be returned or exchanged
