Repair your pair
– YOUR JEANS ARE FINALLY BROKEN.
Your jeans might not be new any longer but they are most certainly more unique, beautiful and full of character. Regardless of your lifestyle, your jeans has become a log of the time you spent wearing them – you might even have a few anecdotes referring to different stains, abrasions, or scrapings.
REPAIRING AND REUSING
Even though your jeans are made of tightly woven cotton twill and originally made as a durable garment for workers, they won't last forever.
Jeans are often worn more frequently than other types of pants and consequently they also wear out quicker.
If you wear your jeans low, hanging on the hip, the fabric and the thick seams in the crotch will rub against each other. The friction will eventually break the fabric. This is more common on tighter fits than on loose.
As we are all different we also wear and tear our jeans differently. All pre-washed and pre-treated denims have a shorter lifetime compared to dry denim, as the cotton fibres are softer and thinner after treatments. However, extending the life of your favourite pair is a fairly easy task.
