Alterations for In-Store Purchases

Alteration services are available for select UNIQLO jeans and pants. We can shorten the pants length only. Once the pants are altered, they cannot be lengthened further and cannot be altered back to their original length. Some stitch options will not be available depending on pants type.

  • Cut-off Stitch
  • A hem created by cutting the pants to the selected inseam without folding. This provides unique fraying that may continue to fray after washing and wearing. Please trim the frayed threads to your liking.
  • Visible (Lock) Stitch
  • A standard method that uses single stitching on both the interior and exterior sides of the pants.
  • Depending on the length hemmed, traces of removed stitching may remain. In addition, distressed items will lose the distressing effect on the stitched sections.
  • Hidden (Blind) Stitch
  • Nearly invisible stitching for a neat look. The hem is folded once and finished with a stitch that is almost invisible on the outer side of the pants. Recommended for formal and business wear.
  • Chain Stitch
  • A classic and traditional stitch commonly used to hem denim and jeans. Made with a chain-style stitch on the inner side and a straight stitch on the outer side of the pants with a double folded hem.

Will my altered pants look the same with the original hem?

Unfortunately, we only offer shortening alterations for selected pants; the altered hem will not have the original finish for denim or selected pants with unique features. Bottoms with a tapered or flare design may lose this feature if more than 4 inches are removed. Please ask a store associate for details.

Do I need to have my pants pinned?

If you do not know what length you would like your jeans/pants altered to: You can try them on in our store fitting rooms and have one of our staff members pin them for you at your desired length. It is advised that you wear shoes during the pinning to get a better idea of the length.

If you know exactly what length you would like your jeans/pants altered to: You can inform our staff member your desired length at the cash wrap area when they issue you the alteration slip.


How long will I have to wait for an alteration in store?
