Slide Into Custom Handcrafted Jeans At Downtown L.A.’s New Denim Workshop
"These days, customization wins. A newly-opened denim workshop in Downtown Los Angeles’ Historic Core has managed to combine said consumer preference with the fashion facts that Angelenos love their jeans and love them even more when they hug and flatter every contour of the lower body.
Den.m Bar opened its doors last Thursday, claiming the title as DTLA’s first custom denim workshop “in recent times,” says Brigham Yen. Two of the three co-founders - Steven Chiang and Richard Wang - filled Yen in on the workshop’s concept. Yen writes:
It’s pretty simple. Basically, after you choose the fit/style and fabric you want, you’ll be measured and your new pair of denim will be made-to-order with a turnaround time between 5-7 days. They even provide free shipping with each order. From Slim Tapered to Skinny Straight to just Skinny, the preferred cut can be further tailored, giving the buyer even more control of how the jeans ultimately fit.
Den.m Bar informed us that the turnaround time is actually 7-10 business days.
The company’s website explains: “Our expert in-house seamstresses use the finest materials sourced 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 site describes the workshop’s mission as wanting “to offer a kick butt pair of premium denim at reasonable prices,” which start at $229. A commenter noted, “I believe the 50% off is until March 15, 2012.”
So, if you’re in dire need of new denim rompers made specifically to highlight your bottom half’s best features (like a tight rear from squatting your way to achieving your 2012 resolution), sounds like you should head to the workshop fast to score the discount.
Business hours on Sunday and Monday are by appointment-only; appointments can be made via email. The workshop welcomes walk-in clients Wednesday through Friday from 12pm to 7pm and Saturday from 12pm to 6pm.”
