Nah, we’re not sure why lady #3 is wearing boots either.
We’ve all had a zipper break on a beloved pair of jeans. It’s frustrating and can render an otherwise perfect pair of jeans unwearable (unless you want to go the unattractive and slightly hazardous safety-pin-in-the-crotch-area route). But you never need to suffer this kind of annoyance again, denim lovers. Repairing the zipper and other hardware on jeans is one of the skills we keep in our denim expert arsenal, so send them in! Here is one of the many zipper repairs we’ve done recently.
Send in your jeans to have your broken zipper & hardware repaired!

Denim of Virtue is a premium denim brand manufactured in LA. “We didn’t want to just throw ourselves back into the ‘premium denim’ market without delivering a product that was truly luxe and worthy of the name. That was part of our Virtue… giving our customer denim that feels so good on they won’t want to take it off, and really introducing looks that stand out in the marketplace,” says the brand’s designer, Elizabeth Bae. And make no mistake, she they’re living up to their manifesto.
Sourcing the very best denim fabrics from around the globe, DoV developed new techology, “X-Fit”—a four-way stretch material that provides an unparalleled slimming effect. They looked to Italy’s Candiani denim mill for durability and France’s soft Tencel-based “Cool 12” material for their relaxed fits (so comfortable it’s pretty much impossible to take off). Finally, for their coated denim styles, they imported specialty fabric from Spain that was treated with an uber-soft wash.
What was your first thought when you tried them on?
Comfort factor. I’m used to wearing raw denim. These are more like wearing a soft moccasin after years of wearing strong tough shoes.
Where/when would you wear these?
I’ve been wearing them to brunch, for walks along the waterfront in Williamsburg… they have the perfect look and feel amazing. I’ve dubbed them my “resort jeans”.
How’s the fit?
I really like the medium rise with a tapered slim fit. They have the perfect amount of stretch and are really comfortable. The contrast cuffs are another visual bonus.
Wash 751 DI (Contrast)

Denim has always been a staple of the Stella McCartney collections and has been featured on the runway in previous seasons. For Spring 2014, the range is expanded into an offering of up to 10 styles in 20 washes including prints and colors that complement the designer’s ready-to-wear collection.
The increase in styles this season focuses on jeans and shorts in either skinny leg, wide leg or boyfriend fit with a low, high or mid-rise. Washes including over dyed, faded and degrade come in classic shades of indigo, white, grey and black; while a fresh spring palette consists of rose, lipstick and chamomile. Prints are playful in a black and white heart print and subtle in all black subtle leopard.
The range features a new denim technology including high recovery fabric that reduces stretching due to wear while also shaping the body. Continuing the designer’s commitment to sustainability, 8 styles are 100% organic cotton, farmed using a water efficient process that does not involve harmful chemicals, restores and maintains soil health.
Additionally no sand blasting has been used, a technique commonly used in denim which is harmful to workers due to the high exposure toxic silica in the air. All the denim styles are 100% made in Italy.
The denim range will ship 3 times a year and is available to retailers at market starting tomorrow for a November delivery with a retail price range from $350 to $595.

Recently, we heard about this website called zipfit.me that claims to have a “unique algorithm that matches you to the right pair of mens jeans based upon a pair you already love or based upon your body type and fit preferences.” It seemed legit, so I gave it a try. I liked was that I could try both methods without having to set up an account or enter any payment information.
First, I tried the more custom technique by entering my measurements and fit preferences. I knew I wanted a pair of white jeans, so I just searched through the dozen-or-so matches for a pair that came in white and voila- we have a deal! I also tried the process where you select a pair you already have from a list and it came up with mostly the same dozen-or-so pairs, so clearly I have a type.
I experimented with both methods, several times, and I can safely say the process is very easy – so easy, a male model could handle it. Payment was a breeze and my Paige denim Normandie egg shell jeans were on their way. They must have had them in stock, because I got my jeans in about a week.
I was pretty excited about my white jeans, because I’ve never had a pair of white jeans and, you know, YOLO- or whatever. I tried them on and immediately realized my blue boxers weren’t going to work with these pants. After a quick trip to the store for some tighty whities, I was ready for the joys these pants would unlock. For some reason, I was imagining them to be like gritty, Andrew WK style white jeans- but once I got them, I realized I had selected more yacht-rock, Hall and Oates style slack-y jeans, but that’s cool. I’ll rock that 80’s look, no problem.
I’m looking forward to launching these white light denim jeans into my summer rotation. Zipfit.me delivers the goods, as promised, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience.
