Repair and Take Care of Your Jeans
– YOUR JEANS ARE FINALLY BROKEN IN
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Even though your jeans are made of tightly woven cotton twill and originally made as a durable garment for workers, they won't last forever.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.
When it comes to repairing your jeans there are a couple of different options. If you live anywhere near one of our Nudie Jeans Stores that offer repairs free of charge we're happy to do it for you.
Another options is to go to your favorite tailor, find a handy friend or do it yourself - a fun and rewarding task.
If you want to do it yourself we can send you a repair kit free of charge. The Nudie Jeans Repair Kit contains thread, patches and a few more things.
