A Happy Customer Wrote A Song About Us…

…and we’re obsessed with it:

Denim Therapy

I came into this place of work.
All tattered torn and feeling hurt.
I didn’t know what I would find.
A salvage bin? The trash bin line?
But they greeted me, with great big smiles
And said…”no worries”…your still in style.
They scanned my wear, from head to toe.
Did this did that, how did they know?
How many things that I would need?
A buckle loop, a patched inseam?
They made me feel, “that way again”
When I felt snug, all tight and thin.
When I strolled the streets, both day and night.
Thinking “check me out”, my game is tight!
And now I’m feeling all brand new.
And say to them, that I thank u.
For all the things that u have done.
Restoring me to my true form. 
For simply taking with kind the time.
To patch my seams, my soul, my mind.

Pair Your Denim Shirt With A Sleek Blazer

Did you ever think you could wear a double denim outfit and look chic enough to step into the office? We know one style blogger who has perfected the art of taking unexpected textiles and translating them into extremely luxe looks. Her blog, aptly named Viva Luxury, is chocked full of ways to do exactly that.

We especially love this look, where she paired her tailored black blazer with a denim button-down shirt and some printed skinny jeans. Think you can pull this off and pair your denim shirt with a sleek blazer?

In Case You Were Wondering: The Evolution Of Pants

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the first pair of women’s jeans last month, Levi Strauss &Co. has created a snapshot of the evolution of pants. The images attached take us through the many years and styles of a women’s changing wardrobe and the look that, for so long, was such a scandal. For a closer look into the women’s pants throughout history (many, of course, being Levi’s), check out Unzipped.

8 - Stonewashing


Lady Levi’s®, Lot 701, was first introduced in 1934. This image appeared in the first catalog. They were called “Dude Ranch Duds,” the company’s new separate line of western wear.

1 - Lady Levi's

During World War II, many people visited dude ranches, as European travel was no longer possible. LS&CO. expanded its offerings of western clothing and always highlighted Lady Levi’s®. This is a catalog from the mid-‐ 1940s.


2 - Western

After World War II, the company started selling Lady Levi’s® jeans beyond the western states, where they soon became the uniform for the suburban mom. By the early 1950s, there was a change in attitude toward denim, which was now being seen as a fabric for leisure as well as labor. Trade magazines of the period make this very clear; in 1956 a writer for American Fabrics said that denim is in an “entirely new clothing category: it used to be work clothes, but now it’s work ‘n play clothes.”


3 - At Ease

By the mid-1950s, LS&Co. was making men’s and women’s clothing under the Casuals label. In 1955, the women’s Casuals line was so extensive it was given its own catalog, which was filled with the skirts, blouses, and “pedal pushers,” popular in films and in suburban backyards. The clothes were heavily advertised in magazines such as Glamour, Mademoiselle, and Seventeen.


4 the '50s-

In the 1960s, teenagers started to appear in advertisements reflecting the power of the Baby Boomer youth culture. In 1964, LS&CO. offered skinny stretch jeans for juniors, and these images appeared on in-‐‐store advertising cards that year.


5 - Stretch Lady Levi's

5 - Stretch


Lady Levi’s® jeans were made for both mom and daughter in the 1960s and looked stylish on everyone. This advertising in store item is from about 1963.

6 - The '60s

The 1970s was all about personal expression and individuality. Fashion was one way people expressed themselves. Jeans in this era had a more groovy shape – and the open-leg flare style was an instant hit.


7 - Flares


In the 1980s, the Levi’s® brand introduces the famous 501® jeans for women in 1981. The brand introduces stonewashing to women’s jeans just two years later in 1983.

9 - The White Revolution

In the 1990s, the Levi’s® brand offers a series of premium denim and continues to make a wide range of jeans – including the 501®, 550®, 512® Slim fits in an array of colors including the ever so popular white denim.


8 - Stonewashing


Today, 80 years after the birth of the jean for women, Levi’s continues to innovate to provide denim lifestyle solutions for women. In 2013, Levi’s introduced Levi’s Revel, a form-fitting jean with liquid shaping technology that shapes, lifts, and defines, with premium four-way stretch memory.


10 - Live in Levi's

Before & After: A Hole In Your Back Pocket

And believe us, you’ve got to take care of it before you start losing spare change. Check out one of our recent denim repair jobs below.
