Denim Fades + Repair Work: Jean Shop Rockers Raw Selvedge Denim


Jean Shop denim has always been on our radar and we were happy to see this denim come to us for some repair work. Our customer and friend Ben from Washington DC recently sent us his Jean Shop Rockers for a hem and repair. Ben's denim has seen some nice wear and we are happy to show his accomplishments. Ben has been wearing this denim for 6 months and washed approximately 15 times.

The Jean Shop Rocker uses a 14oz right hand twill Japanese selvedge denim and has a minimalist design. For only wearing for 6 months, this denim has faded quite nicely.

Nice fades and creasing behind the knees.

As mentioned previously, Ben sent us denim to some repair where we reinforced the crotch area where the fabric has worn through.

For this repair, we used a fleece inter-facing and went over with a lock-stitch machine using a matching thread of the current indigo color.

The inter-facing is soft, comfortable and holds up well to washing and further wear.

Jean Shop is located in NYC and features Japanese selvedge denims which are all made in the USA. Their signature orange selvedge and contrast stitching make them readily identifiable to the denim connoisseur. Jean Shop offers nice fits and a quality denim for the price and we plan to stock them in the very near future. Stay tuned!
