OMG – the answer to one of my greatest dilemmas!! So many times I have tried to bleach, rip, destroy, fade – you name it and I tried it – my jeans. And never ever, not even once, did they come out looking the way I was imagining they would – so many frustrating hours spent, for nada. And even more so nowadays, when we are all so suffering from the “sameness” syndrome, when most of the jeans out there kinda look identical (well, for the most part!).
Problem solved. Enter The Denim Refinery. Not only can you buy kickass vintage items there, but they’ll also customize your own jeans. And they have pretty much everything covered – from bleached, to destroyed and ripped and even foiled and frayed and painted. What a denim heaven this is! Hey, where have you been all this time, DR????
“Denim Refinery is an e-boutique and style site where customers can send in their denim to be customized with industry treatments such as waxing, distressing, or even laser printing (leopard is always a crowd favorite). Along with this service, Denim Refinery also offers a carefully curated selection of classic vintage denim that has been gently “refined,” while still preserving the original aesthetic. Through simple styling, Denim Refinery strives to maintain a timeless aesthetic for the brand, encouraging their customers to regard vintage as an equivalent to contemporary wear.”
