When I last visited NYC back in 1998 a friend of mine who lived there at the time told me I could go to the Levi's store and get jeans custom tailored to fit me. I never made it there, but now I'm going back with my teenager and she loves the idea of getting jeans custom made to fit her. I know that may sound strange, but we're both short and she is very, very thin and has a hard time finding jeans that fit her other than little girl jeans that she doesn't like anymore. I know we can get jeans altered too, but they just never seem to look the same once altered.
Do any locals know if the Levi's store still does this? Or any other stores that do this? I know we would probably have to have them shipped home to us and that's okay.
