Here’s a cool look behind the scenes at the Naked & Famous denim factory in Canada, via Capsule:
The Naked and Famous team have been part of the Capsule Show family for as long as we can remember. A family-run business itself, Naked & Famous denim is all made in Canada in a factory that’s been in the family for decades. “My family has been manufacturing workwear for over 60 years in Canada, and this factory is a testament to our commitment to keeping domestic production alive and thriving,” explains owner Brandon Svarc. “We have many old sturdy machines from the 1950s and 60s, all made from metal with no plastic parts. We even have a rare Union Special 43200G bulldog chain-stitching machine which is Made in USA but we had to track it down from a machine seller in the countryside in Japan!”

Need to remove the odor from a pair of jeans so you can rock them at all of your holiday gatherings this year? Yeah, that’s right, we know you’re going to wear your favorite pair to literally every social function you’re invited to. Don’t let the stank ruin your festive swagger! While you’re buzzing about doing last minute holiday tasks,dampen your jeans in water. Then, hang them out on the laundry line and let the fresh air penetrate them. Spritz them a few times with Febreeze, and bring them inside at the end of the day.
Don’t have a laundry line? Put them on a pant hanger (clipped, not folded) and find a trusty non-sappy tree branch to hang them from. Presto. Just be sure to check the weather first!

When it comes to wearing jeans in the winter, there are a few things we want out of the styles we select. They’ve gotta be warm, they’ve gotta be sleek, and they’ve gotta be easy to wear with thick socks and our favorite lace-up boots. These three pairs meet our requirements, and they also style effortlessly from day to night for holiday parties after work.
1. MiH The Bodycon Jeans 2. J Brand 620 Mid Rise Super Skinny Jeans 3. DL1969 Emma Coated Legging Jeans
Wear any of them with a blazer and a pop color top for a perfect winter look.

Few things seem to excite style mavens more than vintage Chanel, but when this vintage denim Chanel makeup bag hit Nasty Gal, it was an intense moment for all of us. Many of us clicked frantically to check our savings account balances, and debated whether this morsel was worth dropping $558 on. In the end, someone thought so, cause it’s since sold out. But we just couldn’t bring ourselves to do it.
…But seriously, how sweet would it be to pull out this baby in the ladies room when you’re powdering your nose?!
Whoever snagged it, you’re one lucky duck.

Is it a holiday miracle, or just seasoned denim repair experts that made this repair job come together so seamlessly? We’ll go with the latter! We received this devastated pair of jeans recently that looked like they’d been in an unfortunate knife fight in the crotch region (yikes). But denim lovers know the crotch can wear and tear quicker than any other part of the jean. We were prepared to embark on a rescue mission that has, indeed, ended happily. Scroll to see the after.
Learn more about Denim Therapy’s expert repair services and send us your jeans for alteration, hole fixing, or hardware replacement. We do it all, so your favorite jeans never have to expire.
