Before & After Ripped Pocket Repair


We’ve all been there… a favorite pair of jeans we wear almost every day for years, until one day we realize there’s a problem. The pockets, which we’ve been shoving our cellphones and hands and money into seemingly forever, have torn away a hole in the base fabric, right below the rivet. Eek. But a ripped pocket is no match for our expert denim repair technicians. Check out this before and after to see what we mean, and let us help you out if you’re having a similar problem.

Before & After: A Hole In Your Back Pocket


Wallets do a number on jean pockets. When you wear the same pair of jeans for years and put your wallet in your pocket repeatedly, it adds a pretty cool wallet-shaped scar, but eventually a hole can form in your denim. 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.

Before & After: Jeans With Ripped Knees


In line with last week’s before & after post (in case you missed it, we shared a before & after repair involving worn-out whiskers that eventually tore), this week we repaired jeans with tears in the knee area, where whiskers had also appeared after years of wear. Talk about a favorite pair! Check out the before and after below, and send in your favorite pair of jeans for some denim-doctor-ing if they need it.

Before & After: Jeans With Ripped Whiskers


As you might remember from last week, we repair more than just the typical crotch hole and knee hole here at Denim Therapy. A pair of jeans came in recently with an array of worn-out tears in the whisker region, likely from years of loving wear. If you have a favorite pair of jeans, you may notice a similar pattern (in which case you should send them in, asap). Check out the before and after below, to see what we were able to do for this customer.

Before & After: Jeans Ripped At The Seam


It isn’t always the knee or the crotch region of jeans that suffers damage. We recently received some denim from a customer that featured a slash right across the seam. We were able to employ our expert denim repair techniques and reinforce the repair so this denim-lover’s lifestyle won’t leave them with extra AC for fall. Check out the before and after below.

Denim Therapy Repairs Slashed Jeans


We don’t even particularly want to know why these jeans have a huge gash in the crotch, but it could not have been a pleasant moment in the denim-owner’s life (whether or not they were wearing them at the moment of impact)! We were able to restore this denim back to its former glory using our expert denim repair techniques. Check out the before and after posts below.

Amber Heard Needs Her Jeans Repaired


As you guys know from today’s earlier post, we’re all about the destroyed denim trend. However, if you’re going to go for that look, why go half way? Anything less than full fledged tear-town makes you look like you just fell down the stairs, especially if the rest of the jeans look crisp and new. Such is the case with Johnny Depp’s fiance Amber Heard‘s jeans in this photo. We think she could use a little Denim Therapy. Our expert repair services would fix her up in no time!

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.

What you see below: a rip in the back pocket caused by the wear and tear of years of service. Those loyal jeans shouldn’t be tossed, though! We’ll fix them up so you can keep on keepin’ on with your denim BFFs. Trust us.
