We’re smack dab in the middle of summer, and if you’ve hit a style rut, you’re not alone. For your inspiration purposes, we’ve plucked three different warm weather denim looks for men (and found the pieces to get these looks)–check them out below!
DT is back for our third round of live-blogging PROJECT NY this month from July 22nd through the 24th thanks to Marcus Troy and his curated BLOGGER PROJECT. This time we’re being sponsored by Dell Computers and have received a gorgeous XPS laptop to blog the show from.
We’ll be bringing you the latest brand innovations and exciting developments in the denim and clothing industry from the floor for three solid days (not to mention wacky behind-the-scenes antics like tequila x skateboarding, etc). Stay tuned!
Been missing out? Check out our past two video round-ups from PROJECT NY below, and check out our PROJECT NY tag for a stream of great posts.

It happens to us all: find a pair of jeans that are amazing, wear them to the bone, wind up with a bunch of holes, keep wearing them anyway, holes get too big to hide, put them in the back of the closet, buy a new pair, repeat. But this doesn’t have to be the way! Recently, Denim Therapy came to the rescue for Wesley, of TheDenimGuy.com fame, who suffered from the most common repair need of all: the crotch blowout. Read Wesley’s review of the Denim Therapy repair process here, then, once you’re convinced of our magical powers, enter here to win free repairs! You officially have no excuses not to fix your favorite jeans (or send them in for reinforcement so you don’t end up like Wesley). There’s no time like NOW.

Net-A-Porter never lets you down when it comes to style, and the same is true with its denim collection. We’ve plucked six jeans from the online retailer that are spot-on for summer. With warmer weather, it’s the perfect time to keep cool by wearing a wide-leg, boyfriend fit, or cropped jean. Try on the tuxedo jean trend, select a crowd-pleasing pair of punchy, printed jeans, or wear jeans in summery colors made for this season. Just let us know, what’s your pick?

Denim Therapy can fix a lot of your problems, but not all of them. Apparently, it’s true! If you’re a dude and you wear super tight jeans, you may want to go up one size. The latest reports suggests men can suffer from “twisted testicles” if they engage in extremely tight pant-wearing.
Medical experts, including UK television personality Dr. Hilary Jones, have reported an increase in injuries being caused by tight jeans, cites The Telegraph on Wednesday. “The trendy denims are causing twisted testicles, bladder weakness, and even urinary tract infections.”
Gents, read up and give your balls a break! (Tee-hee) Also, someone please tell Conan to put his jeggings on the shelf for good.

Here at Denim Therapy, we constantly encourage our customers to take before and after photos and videos of their jeans during the the repair process. Then we got to thinking, what better way to entice you all into making and sending us videos than to offer free repairs! From July 13 until July 31, we will be accepting video submissions from all of you, telling us what your favorite jeans need to be perfect again — rips, holes, fraying, missing buttons, too big, too small, pocket falling off — whatever your baby blues require, we can fix it. Then, during the first week of August, we will announce a winner (best video, lots of pizzazz, most helpless-seeming pair of jeans), and that person will receive completely free repairs! Plus, all runners-up will have their videos featured here and on our Facebook page. So fire up your cameras, grab your most desperate denim, and tell us what’s wrong. Then, simply upload the video in a reply here or in a Facebook message to us. You’ve got nothing to lose and so much to gain! Good luck!

Can’t get enough of neon? Maybe you haven’t invested in a pair of highlighter jeans yet, but you have no excuse not to inject some poppy color into your summer wardrobe with this look from Sincerely, Jules. She paired distressed, cuffed boyfriend jeans with a polished neon green top and simple-but-bold accessories. It’s covered-up, but light and breezy enough for a humid summer.
Get the look below!
