2015-01-27

Without black jeans, the world would be a much duller and conformist place dwell. Pick any genre of music and imagine it without black denim. It’s virtually impossible and it just doesn’t work.

This is how we do it: How to hem jeans

2014-08-05

Hemming is something that divides denim wearers into four categories. Some are opposed to it and wouldn’t even consider it.
