Repairs & Modifications
« on: October 31, 2010, 11:00:35 am »
Whilst visiting Giles yesterday we happened to discuss speacialist denim repairers. I've used this guy on Levis Vintage and found the quality of repair, service and cost superb. I definitely recommend him. He's based in Manchester:

Anybody have positive or negative reviews of Denim Doctors in LA or Denim Therapy in NY? Need a hem re-chainstitched, if possible. Either of these places do that?

nope, Simon, I wouldn't use 21oz on 21oz for repair, just too bulky..the reason we put the patches on the outside is that Alex wears his jeans cuffed ...

My sr's are starting to come apart in the crotch area. I'm really hoping to slow this down as much as I can.

where they are at,



What is the best way to go about this? A patch sewn on from underneath?
