Denim Therapy X PRPS

Denim Therapy X PRPS japanese denim calendar by Donwan Harrell

Happy 2016 everyone! Denim Therapy is officially a decade old. Since 2006 our founder, Francine Rabinovich, has turned a labor of love into a business known internationally, recognized by Vogue, and recommended in the Wall Street Journal. Over the years we have had the honor of working with giants in the industry and our latest collaborator is no exception. In celebration of our 10 year anniversary we teamed up with fellow Garment District neighbor and longtime friend of the company Donwan Harell of PRPS. PRPS’s slogan is Bruised Never Broken and their designs illustrate Harell’s appreciation for the beauty of aged denim. We bonded over the stories distressed jeans carry with them. It should be no surprise that the Denim Therapy team believes with more repair comes more unique character, and the more unique character the better.

We have teamed up with PRPS to create a limited edition collectible 2016 wall calendar. The calendar is made of a 82 x 35 cm swath of 15 oz Kaihara raw denim. It has two brass eyelets for hanging, silkscreened design, selvedge side, and neatly hemmed bottom. Quantities are extremely limited as a run of only 200 were manufactured by PRPS. The calendars will be given to our friends and a select group of loyal customers in honor of our 10 year anniversary.

DT Loves: ASOS Marketplace

After years of public school education the association between September and that back-to-school anticipation has been burnt onto our synapses. This antsy feeling often results in a strong compulsion to get prepared for the changes autumn brings, in other words, binge-shopping. The women on the Denim Therapy team always turn first to ASOS to satisfy this urge. The UK online retailer started in 2000 and launched ASOS Marketplace in 2010. This new expansion to their site serves as a platform for independent boutiques to sell their goods. We try to support our fellow small businesses whenever we can and ASOS Marketplace is a pretty good place to start if you like the styles the online giant sells. Check out our favorite denim pieces for fall sold on the Marketplace below.

Customer Review: Nicci of A Different Face

Nicci is the brain behind the blog A Different Face. She works in the tech industry with a background in art, which arms her with the perfect combination of experiences for well-informed beauty reviews and tips. Nicci recently used Denim Therapy for a crotch repair on her favorite pair of J.Crew Matchsticks. She says, “Possibly my favorite jeans ever are an ancient pair of J.Crew Matchsticks. I found them in my local consignment shop and they fit perfectly. And when I say perfect, I mean that. […] The more important thing to me is that I don’t want similar jeans, I want my jeans.” Well put!

Check out Nicci’s full in-depth review of our crotch repair at A Different Face. All photos credited to

How To Use Destroyed Denim Into A Luxe Look

Have you ever imagined wearing a ripped up pair of destroyed denim jean cut-off shorts to the office? It’s completely possible to use something as rebel-inspired and edgy as cut-off shorts in a luxe look. It’s all about the way you style, as The Marcy Stop teaches us in a recent blog post. Pairing those shredded shorts with a white modern blazer, a gold necklace and a tucked-in tank takes the whole concept to  a new level. If this is against dress code, we don’t wanna be right.

A Moment Of Silence For This Denim Therapy Customer’s Crotch

We’re not gonna lie. We love our own before and after photos of our denim repair service. We try to capture as much of the interesting/fun/crazy wear-and-tear as possible before it gets handed over to our denim doctors, so we can show you guys what the team is working on.
