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.

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”

How To Get Gum Out Of Your Jeans


Got gum stuck in your jeansImogene + Willie has a great tip for getting them clean again (with a highly amusing anecdote about what a night of hard partying will do to a gum chewer). The inquiring gum-sufferer explains their dilemma below…

Dear Rhett-

As I was flying home yesterday, I was horrified to find that I had sat in some gum and really ground it into the back of my one-month-old Barton Rigids. Fortunately, it isn’t too huge of a spot, but I am struggling with what to do. I have attempted to get the gum out by hand, but that is pretty fruitless at this point.

Thanks for your help.

Kevin Isaacs

 

Imogene + Willie’s store manager Rhett replies below…

 

Kevin,

Oddly enough, this very thing happened to me, though I wasn’t on a plane.I am an avid gum chewer and went to bed with gum in my mouth. Went to bed in his jeans, you might ask? OK, let’s be honest: after a big night out, I stumbled to my room and fell into bed, obviously not caring what was on my body or in my mouth.

When i woke up, the gum was in my arm hair and between my legs. I have no idea how this happened. I’m lucky the spot on my jeans wasn’t visible: I washed them in cold water, hung them to dry, and, because I like the rigid, non-broken-in look, ironed them with spray starch. You can still see where the gum was a little bit, but I don’t mind.

Here are two remedies you can try. Both involve freezing the gum. Keep in mind that neither is guaranteed to work, but it never hurts to try.

- Rub an ice cube on the gummed-up spot. When the residue freezes, it should be relatively easy to scrape off.

- Place the jeans in the freezer for an hour or more; as with the ice cube, the frozen gum should peel right off.

In either case, when you get the spot clean, rub dish soap into any leftover stain with a soft clean cloth and launder as usual.

good luck!

Be well,

Rhett

Achieve Denim Wardrobe Clarification!


Not sure what to buy this season? Is your closet a mess? Clos-ette clues us in on how to keep your clothes in check so you can achieve what they call “wardrobe clarification”—crucial for establishing and maintaining your personal style (and budget).

“Merchandising your closet and denim pieces, similar to a store or showroom, is the the best way to achieve a complete wardrobe clarification. Categorizing denim (clothes) by color, or into separates, evening, day, accessories and so on is also a great way for you to really start to “see” the contents of your wardrobe.” Via Clos-ette.

Daily Denim Tip: What Denim You Should Wear In The Summer


Despite the smoldering heat, sometimes you just can’t pass up your favorite baby-blues. But how do you survive the summer without style-induced heat-stroke? Refinery29 had a chat with stylist Chrissy Volk on the topic of staying cool and stylish this summer, and she had a few things to say about wearing denim into the warmest months.

summer-denim-true-religion-1

“If you’ve got to wear jeans, Chrissy suggests denim that’s made with a high-cotton content and low synthetic materials. A jean with either a 98% cotton-2% lycra, or 96 % cotton-4% lycra fabric are good combinations. “
