Nike & Liberty of London Collaborate on Kicks


Confession: We at DT are sneaker collectors. We’ve amassed closet fulls of kicks between us, and nothing is more exciting (or threatening to our wallets) than a fresh collaboration between two brands we love. Nike & Libery of London collaborated on a collection of sneakers that feature vintage fabrics designed by the fashion house, used to create Dunk Sky Hi, Blazer, Internationalist, and Air Max styles for women. The result is a sophisticated style that resembles an amazing pair of vintage printed jeans. We’re in loooove.

The Best Destroyed Denim For Spring


We’re loving destroyed denim this year, and it seems our options are more broad than ever. No longer are only cut-off shorts and boyfriend jeans getting the scissor and razor treatment before they land in stores, but now denim skirts, vests, and other styles are seeing some deliberate on-trend damage too. Shop some of our favorite styles of destroyed denim below.

How To Tuck Your Jeans Into Boots


We’re a little bitter that we should be thinking about sandals and open-toe shoes at this point, and we’re writing about boots… but mother nature has her own plans. Thus, we’re bringing you a little tip on how to tuck your jeans into boots (especially the non-skinny kind), thank to She Knows.com. Check it out, and be sure to let us know what other denim perils you are facing this week.

how-to-tuck-jeans-into-boots

“First, you’ll want to find a pair of boots that hit right below your knees or a bit higher. They should also be a little loose on your legs, in order to leave room for your pants to be tucked in.

As far as jeans go, opt for a pair that has some flare. Make sure they’re snug on your thighs and fitted at the knees though. Otherwise, they’ll get all bunched up and baggy when you try to tuck them in, which definitely isn’t a good look.

Last but not least, grab some thin, high socks (or trouser socks) to slide over your pants to hold that fold in place. You’ll see what we mean shortly — don’t fret!” (read the full instructions at She Knows.com)

6 Pairs of Boyfriend Jeans We’re Coveting


Take a hint from the guys this spring and don a pair of boyfriend jeans. Easy to pair with a casual tank or a crisp dress shirt, you can rock this style just about anywhere.

White Jeans You Can Wear Without Worry


You know the scenario… it’s mid-spring, you’re psyched for your first day in weather-appropriate spring attire, and you knock your latte over right in the lap of your new white jeans. Sound familiar? We know, we’re cringing too. That scenario is enough to make you swear off wearing white forever! But Joe’s Jeans has a solution: a stain-proof white denim collection dubbed Spotless. The collection tagline urges customers to “play dirty” but “stay spotless”. Elle did a good job getting us psyched, but we’re waiting for the video of models wearing the white skinnies, cut-off shorts and cropped pants, dousing themselves in coffee, soda, and wine.

…Still waiting!

A Customer Reviews Our Denim Repair Service


We love making our customers happy. You guys know that, right? Getting a glowing review from someone who we were able to help restore a beloved pair of jeans is the stuff that keeps this machine going. We wanted to share this one with you specifically, from a customer who sent us their before and after photos, as well as a detailed description of their denim repair experience.

“It’s always a real downer when your favorite pair of denim jeans gets torn or frayed seemingly beyond repair…but Denim Therapy has the solution.

They charge for repairing holes by the 1/2 inch, but you should know that they are not just doing a simple stitching or patching job: they are actually reweaving the denim using a special machine that is designed to repair denim fabric. In my pair of khaki jeans, the crotch had a big frayed hole inside the leg, but the repair job is very discreet and is even stronger than ever, woven (not sewn) together.

They also repaired a hole in the pocket made from keeping my smartphone in there. Drop-off and pick-up in Midtown was easy as can be, and they give you a lot of options. I highly recommend anyone to denim therapy who has jeans they think they can’t salvage, because these people can do it.” —Jan

The Story Behind Your Favorite Pair Of Jeans


We’re a little sentimental about jeans, if you haven’t noticed. Each member of the Denim Therapy team has a story to tell about when their favorite pair of jeans, either from days gone by, or their more recent jean companions. While we’re a special breed of denim-head to be sure, we know that this level of dedication isn’t abnormal. Everyone has a favorite pair of jeans, whatever income level or profession. For this reason, we adore Jean Stories to the core.

Jean Stories is a website dedicated to telling the stories behind cherished pairs of jeans, from a variety of viewpoints. From jewelry designers to stylists, this site provides an inside peek at the relationship between creatives and innovators, and their baby blues. Here’s one of our favorite excerpts, from LA-based jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer:

jean stories Jennifer Meyer

“I’m a blue girl,” said the Los Angeles jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer when we visited her at her Culver City studio recently. “I do a lot with turquoise and lapis. I grew up in Malibu and was lucky enough to see the bluest blue ocean on a daily basis. Jeans for me…I mean, in LA you can wear jeans to everything.”

(…) Jeans are a totally integral part of every day – as much a part of living as breathing. Consider her Current/Elliott boyfriends (a collector’s item, if you ask us, because they date back to 2008 when C/E’s original founders Emily Current and Meritt Elliott introduced this style and made the boyfriend a must-have in what felt like a minute): They go with her on vacation and they go with her to work. “You put on a heel and a little black leather jacket or a blazer, and you’re done,” said Jennifer, who is mom to Otis, 4, and Ruby, 7, and wife to actor Tobey Maguire. So, they go out with her at night, too? In L.A., you bet they do. (See the full story at Jean Stories)

Is it just us, or is it getting sentimental in here!? We’re looking forward to seeing more of what this site has to offer in terms of up close and personal denim-related tell-all’s.
