XOJane contributor Tynan Sinks experienced a denim-lover’s worst nightmare: after being knocked unconscious in a casual accident and whisked away to the hospital, the doctors took sheers to his first pair of raw denim jeans. We just heard all of you gasp. We think he sums it up best: “Thanks for saving my life and all, DOCTORS, but would it have killed you to show my jeans the same courtesy?”
Devastated that his favorite jeans were unwearable, he was almost ready to give them a proper burial. Before that, he decided to give Denim Therapy’s expert denim repair services a go. No surprises… we restored those jeans to their former glory!
We love Emma Roberts‘ Rag & Bone jeans, and her whole outfit, actually! But with the cold weather blowing in, she might want to get those holes fixed to avoid any unwanted knee-breeze. While shredded knees are a classic rock-n-roll style statement, freezing your legs off is another story. We’ll save you Emma!

Los Angeles DJ Mark Kill bought his first pair of designer jeans nearly ten years ago. But, after wearing them for five years, everyday, they began to tear in the crotch. He loved the jeans so much that he saved them in the back of his closet for five years, even though his mom told him they could never be fixed. Then, he found Denim Therapy! (Stay tuned for the review video of his perfectly fixed Kenneth Coles) and send us your beloved jeans so we can fix them, too.
We received this pair of donations in the office last week—an elaborate DIY patchwork of fabrics and denim, torn and re-sewn, pulled together to the bitter end. This is love, people! This is denim addiction. But is this the best way to fix your jeans? Nope. We admire the effort… but our expert denim repair therapists can give them a better shot at life.
Have a pair of jeans you want to give a second shot at life? Rather than going the above route, we suggest sending them to our expert denim repair therapists for hole repair, reinforcement, tailoring, hemming, and everything a needy pair of jeans could want.
Have you given your jeans thatDenim Therapy it deserves? Show host Lilliana of NBC‘s New York Live gives us the rundown on what to expect and how easy it is to resurrect your old jeans that don’t quite fit properly, and repurpose them into something you will love to wear the whole summer.
“You can ignore signs, portents, and hints, sailing blissfully along on that fabled river in Egypt. But it’s harder to ignore your knee, when it makes an inappropriate appearance in the middle of a meeting at your office, through a fresh hole in your favorite, ancient pair of jeans.
I had to admit that my Levi’s had seen better days. Weekly wear for the better part of eight years had reduced them to a perfect, impossible-to-replicate color and the silky thinness of a French crepe. The waistband had disintegrated into near nothingness on the left side, the new knee-hole joined a few others I’d been studiously not noticing, and the back pockets offered previews of my wallet through hard-won slits.
I wasn’t alone. “Everyone has that favorite pair,” says Francine Rabinovich, the owner of Denim Therapy, a denim repair service. A former brand consultant, Rabinovich founded the company out of personal need: No one would fix her tatty jeans as seamlessly as she wanted. She began the company as a side project at the beginning of 2006; when it outgrew that, she devoted herself to it entirely. Over the last year, she’s seen 100 percent growth.”
Remember your first favorite pair of jeans? The ones you wore everywhere, with everything? The ones you didn’t wash for weeks on end because dirty favorite jeans are better than other, lesser jeans? And, do you remember the day you realized you’d worn them out so much that they were unwearable? Knee holes, crotch blowouts, four inches of hem destruction… We set out on the streets of New York to ask people about their most beloved blues, and the stories remind us of people talking about a close friend whom they’ve lost forever. It’s a lesson for the masses, though, because Denim Therapy can fix your denim best friends! Spread the word! Save your jeans!
We’re not gonna lie… we know we deserve the awesome props Joonbug.com gave us on our expert denim repair service. We reconnect jeans-lovers with their denim-BFF’s after all hope seems lost, and we love what we do. Check out what they had to say about us!
“We all have our favorite pair. Soft worn cotton, perfect fit—these jeans have been a wardrobe staple since before ‘skinny’ was in. Unfortunately, the wear and tear has begun to show, and with it comes the first painful steps on the path towards letting them go. Until now. Since solving your sartorial problems is our specialty, we have a solution for you!
It’s DenimTherapy.com and these jean gurus are your new best friends. While patches are perfect if you’re feeling groovy, they aren’t going to keep your denim classy. Denim Therapy uses MatchPerfect™ cotton thread selection process to find the closet match to your pair’s thread color as possible. The result? A like-new, seemingly flawless finish.”
“Last Christmas, I unwrapped the present from my girlfriend and it was my favorite pair of jeans. Like the actual pair I already owned. I was so confused till I held them up and saw that she’d had the holes fixed and the scuffed hems repaired. She found this place called Denim Therapy that repairs even the most beat up jeans and makes them look like new. Seriously, such a freaking cool gift.” —Michael
