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.

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.

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.
