i just sewed mine up. good thing is that the rip was relatively new. ive had worse. im still a little nervous about em, but hopefully they hold up. ill probably retire these by fall anyways. so as long as they stick around til then, im fine.
Oh good! Maybe I will work on mine this weekend. I was thinking I could just put some reinforcement denim inside.
ever repaired your own denim? i got a crotch rip and i called Self Edge and their turn over rate is 2-3 weeks. idk if i could live without em for that long. might wait til summer when its too hot for jeans.
I’ve never repaired my own jeans, but I’ve been thinking about it lately. I had a crotch blowout a while ago and sent them in to get repaired. Recently, I’ve had a few new small holes starting and was thinking about trying to patch them up on my own…but I’m a little nervous about it, lol.
My girlfriend and I have been together for over a year now and since she has always liked my denim I'm heavily considering getting her some selvedge denim if her own. Are there any recommendations you'd have for me, like brands, sizing, or general tips? I'd much appreciate it. Thanks, love the blog!
I’ve had a pair of Railcar Fine Goods Viper selvage denim for a while. I love the cut because they’re skinny on top with a little more give on the lower half. The only problem was that they blew out pretty quickly since I ride my bicycle all the time. I would say they make a great first pair. If you go with those, make sure to inquire about the sizing. They are very friendly and helpful in figuring out what you need. http://www.railcarfinegoods.com/
If you think she will want something a little heavier and probably more stiff, 3Sixteen+ and The Flat Head recently came out with some women’s selvage. I’m sure its well made considering that they both make high quality men’s denim. You can find those on the Self Edge website- http://www.selfedge.com
Whichever you go with, make sure to find out her waist size and size up accordingly (just don’t size up too much or they will be too baggy…speaking from experience, lol)
I hope this helps you find your lucky lady some new denim! If you want to send me pic updates on the fit and fade, I will gladly post them.
