One of the many charms about a fresh pair of jeans? How good they look when paired with some serious bling. This fall, go for high contrast with denim and costume jewelry to transition into the holiday season, looking like a too-cool faerie tale.

The Best Way To Wash Your Jeans


It’s been a while since we waxed denim-addict on ya, so today we’re brushing up on the best ways to wash and care for your jeans. Whether you spilled a glass of wine, got a regular old grass stain or just caught a whiff of your beloved unique-as-a-snowflake raw denim creation, we’ve got the remedy you need below.

-

General Spot treatment

For those paranoid of losing any indigo hue while spot treating, a combination of white vinegar and water can be sponged over the stain and left for up to 3 hours. Rinse and let air dry. If your jeans are pre-washed or don’t risk dye-loss, spray some OxiClean on the stain and let it sit overnight. Rinse in the morning, and let air dry.

Wax spills

If someone blew out the birthday candles all over your jeans, you can remove very easily, even if it’s dried and crusty. Lay them over a towel, and put a brown paper bag over the wax stain. Press over the brown paper with your iron and watch as the wax is lifted right out of the fibers and into the paper. Depending on the volume of wax, you may need more brown paper — and it may take a few intervals of pressing, but it’ll come out.

Note: You may find this process oddly satisfying. Don’t be surprised if you purposely spill wax all over your jeans in the future, just for fun.

Stinky raw denim

Repeat after us: When raw denim stinks, you no longer the cool guy in raw jeans. You’re the stinky guy in stinky jeans. To remedy this, you have two basic options. One is to turn them inside-out and hand wash them with a gentle laundry soap of white vinegar/water combo, and hang to dry. Another is to put them in a freezer bag and let them sit in the freezer over night. You’ll have to decide which you prefer, depending on your own personal level of stink.

Pre-washed denim

Turn these babies inside-out, throw them in the washer, and hang them to dry. Bada-bing!

Lana Del Rey In Calvin Klein Jean Shirt For NYLON


Sultry songstress Lana Del Rey looks awesome on the cover of Nylon Magazine‘s most recent issue, wearing a Calvin Klein Jean denim shirt and some sexy, strappy black separates. Inside the singer discusses her reaction to different phases in her life, from attending her first philosophy class at age 15, to what it was like when she was living in the city and attending Fordham University:

“I would go over different rhymes in my head, like rhyming ‘disco’ with ‘go-go,’ writing about girls with blue mascara and black eyeliner, and about all of the men I had met who I just loved. It was a very liberating, penniless, hilarious, fun, fun time.”

Eric Reviews Life After Denim’s Churchill Shirt In Bluebird


So, Life After Denim is a brand that, by all accounts, we should despise- purely for their name. But, they were nice enough to send me one of their Churchill shirts. Olive branch accepted.

With quality cotton and heather speckle cloth, it’s hard to hold their name against them for very long. It’s one of the most comfortable shirts I’ve ever worn and it’s great for all seasons, even though it’s in their Fall line. You can beat the heat and roll the sleeves, or keep them extended when the temp drops. Given the not-so-hellish summer temperatures and the surprisingly warm beginning to Fall, I’ve enjoyed both sleeve options, with gusto.

The Bluebird color is a great pairing with any skinny pair of black or white denim jeans. Heck, I wore the shirt to a beach wedding a few weeks ago, tucked into a white pair of slacks. Everybody was like “Yo, where did you get that shirt?!? It’s perfect!”

Simply put, this shirt is a delight. Grab one here.

This Guy Rode A Motorcycle From Ohio To Fix His Dad’s Levi’s Jacket


One of the things we love about Denim Therapy is the variety of stories we encounter as we fix people’s jeans. There is always a theme of devotion and sentimentality when denim is involved, but once in a while we’re totally blown away. One such situation happened recently, when a man arrived, fresh off a motorcycle ride from Ohio, with his father’s 30-year-old Levi’s denim jacket in hand.

It needed traditional repairs, but he also had special requests for unique stitching details to amend some of the worn out areas. We were able to do both. Check the before and after images out below.
