Leg Tapering Service


Our tapering service allows you to get a custom fit on your favorite pair of jeans. We'll taper all brands. We can work on denim, canvas, and chinos. (No dress pants or slacks)

All of the alteration will be done from the inseam so the selvedge is untouched. This service comes with a chain stitch hem to your desired length for free. We have over 13 years of experience doing leg tapers with a collection of vintage machines. Heavier weight fabrics will require an extra charge due to the extra labor required and the extra risk of damage to our vintage machines. We can taper jeans up to a maximum of 25 ounces.  Double panel jeans may require additional charges.

See link to see how we measure.

One of the things that separates our service from the rest is the inseam stitch. We replace the inseam stitch with one continuous stitch so that there's no broken or "tacked" inseam stitch like the other guys. The inseam is clean and flawless.

If you already own a pair of jeans that you like the fit of, you can choose our "Reference Option" and send in your jeans with your reference pair. Please note which jean pant is the reference pair to reduce risk of confusion.

Railcar Denim Services are tax free and the leg tapering service has a 4-5 week turnaround from the day it is checked in.

Jeans will get tapered evenly from front to back. If there is torqueing, it will be the same ratio as when it comes in after tapering. Our threshold tolerance is +/- .25 inch. Please allow for tolerance.

If you want us to fix a previous tailor's job, please contact us at to set that up. 

Return Shipping Insurance:
Your pants will include a $200 per pair of pants. If you would like more coverage, email us at info@railcarfinegoods and we could set you up. Please note, receipt or documentation of the original purchase may be required to excite the claim with the shipping currier.

Return shipping will be charged at checkout.
