We love it when customers come in with their raw denim after putting in the work! If you remember we’ve shown customers’ 3Sixteen and Civilianaire jeans in the past. Our customer Joe proudly came in this week to have one of his pockets reinforced on his imogene + willie ‘Barton‘ jeans!
Barton jean after 15 months
Our tailor Hana at City Custom Tailors worked on them right before spring of last year and fixed the crotch, knees and one of the back pockets…
Front pocket (check out phone imprint!)
Joe says he’s only washed them once; and did one soak later on. He also stored them in the freezer to freshen them up a bit*. If you look closely you can see where his phone created an imprint in his front pocket!
‘Honeycomb’ detail in back of leg
Back pocket repair
With each jean, every rip and tear (and of course, repair) tells a story. While we definitely love it for you to come in for a new pair of denim, you can also invigorate new life in an older pair by taking them to your tailor for a touch up! Or, if you feel ambitious enough, find older fabric to create makeshift patches and sew them over holes to make your pair even more unique!
*Freezing denim is a technique that some denimheads believe is good way keep your jeans from stinking without washing. I prefer to soak/wash mine; but if you want to try this read about it here. -Butch

Part of the appeal of Billy Reid is the brand’s (and the designer’s) laid-back approach of well made basics and fine tailoring without the pretense. Just really great clothes. This season continues that philosophy with superbly cut blazers and jackets, easy going but nicely structured wovens, and simple knits offering just enough detail…
