The Perfect Way To Cuff Your Jeans


Spring is coming, which means it’s almost ankle-baring season! We can’t stress how important it is to have the perfect cuff at the bottom of your jeans. We even made a denim-cuffing video for you a few years back. But we could all brush up a bit on this warm weather skill, so we’re looking to Madewell to set the record straight.

“There’s an art to this relaxed cuff thing, so we asked our denim team to explain how to get our roll on, so to speak.

1. Start with gently wrinkled denim, which holds its shape better than an ironed-flat pair. (It’s the same idea as unwashed, next-day hair being better at holding a curl.)

2. Depending on how much skin you’d like to show, fold the jeans up once, approximately two inches. Make sure this cuff is a bit larger than your ideal final roll—the extra fabric keeps the look loose, rather than starched and precise (à la Happy Days).

3. For your last and final move, gently roll the jeans another time and—attention, please—lightly tug the cuff downward. This creates an anchor effect so that the jeans hang stylishly straight. Done and done.” (Source)

How To Wear White Jeans In The Winter


Whether you call it snow day camouflage, winter whites, or the ski bunny uniform: wearing white in the winter is a chic statement for sure. But how to mix things up and add some edge? We love this styling tip: Layer some white deconstructed denim jeans over a pair of pop color or patterned leggings. Aside from keeping you warm, this will add some serious depth to your look.

A No-Stress Way To Remove Odor From Jeans


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!

How To Get The Perfect Jean Hem Length


When you take in your jeans to get hemmed (for instance, via our Denim Therapy expert hemming service!) be sure to bring a pair of shoes with you to wear when getting measured.

Before your jeans go under the knife you’ll want to make sure the shoes you measure with are the shoes you’re planning to pair with the jeans (or at the least, a similar heel/lack of heel). This will take the guess work out of figuring out the measurement you’ll be happiest with.

Remember, for all your hemming needs, whether it’s a re-size or a repair, check out Denim Therapy’s expert hemming service.

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!
