den.m bar Opens in Downtown LA
Since the BANGSTYLE HQ is located in Downtown Los Angeles, we’re always on the hunt for cool new restaurants and stores around our office. So when I heard about den.m bar, which is located in Downtown Los Angeles’ Historic Core, I was intrigued. Being the first custom denim workshop in Los Angeles, this is a big deal…especially since LA is known as being the denim capital of the world.
Opened last Thursday, the store’s website claims, “Our expert in-house seamstresses use the finest material sources from denim mills in the US, Japan, and Europe to create a pair of jeans you can hold onto for a damn long time. All jeans come with free repairs for five years.”
The decor is simple and clean, lined with denim fabric and sewing machines, giving it that “factory feel” many people associate with the buildings in this up-and-coming section of Downtown LA.
At the den.m bar, you can design your denim from beginning to end, working with a tailor to select fabrics and accessories like zippers and buttons, or simply choose from base models that are on hand for you to check out. There’s soft and stretchy denim and also cone denim. According to the website, it can take up to 19 different pieces of denim to make one pair of jeans!
As far as turn-around time, a pair takes about 5-7 working days to complete, and you can either pick up your jeans in-store (which is recommended since you can try them on), or the store will deliver the finished pair for free via FedEx.
Expect to pay around $200 for your custom denim which isn’t too bad considering that most high-end jeans are in that range already.
If you live in Los Angeles, make sure to stop by the store which is located at 111 West 7th Street #R3, Los Angeles, CA 90014. They’re open Sunday and Monday by appointment only, Wednesday-Friday 12PM-7PM, and Saturday 12PM-6PM.
