DIY A Chic Denim Wrapped Bangle


P.S. – I made this… has a new idea for your discarded denim scraps. It’s quick and creative, and ends up looking super chic. Cut your denim into strips—ideally, denim in different washes and colors, and wrap them around a bangle bracelet. Use your chain to wrap around the bracelet and secure the denim in place.

How To Store Your Jeans


So you already know how to care for your jeans, but once they’re spic-and-span and free of stains, do you know how to properly fold and store them to reduce wear-out? Stylecaster has something to say about that:

“Fold jeans like a pro: Lay jeans on a flat surface, fold in half from left to right. Grab the stacked jean legs and fold them in half so the hem of the jeans lines up with the waistband. Fold the jeans in half one more time.

Denim needs to breathe, so be sure to not pack folded pairs too tightly together on a shelf, or hand denim jackets or vests in a crowded closet”

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!

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.
