Best Denim Repair, August 2012
Designer labels or thrift store staples: It doesn't matter what they cost because once you slide into that perfect pair, those jeans ain't coming off until well past laundry day. But not everything gets better with age. Overdo the distressing or wear a hole into the knees of your skinnies, and your former besties may be relegated to the back of the closet. For blue jean revitalization we like Denim Doctors on Beverly and Denim Revival on West 3rd, but the Denim Repair Shop at Schaeffer's Garment Hotel wins our vote. Patches are seamlessly matched with the original fabric—no one will know you've had work done. » 7517 W. Sunset Blvd., Hollywood.
