We love our jeans. If you’re anything like me, you own a couple pairs of jeans that you basically live in. You wear them when you run errands, and when you go out for the night. Depending on how the evening goes, you might even wake up in a drunken haze with your trusty jeans still on. The point is, we love our jeans.

That love makes things difficult when our jeans are destroyed beyond repair. We’ve all experienced a broken zipper, a worn hem, or the dreaded crotch blowout. When those things have happened in the past, we’ve had to  try to repair the jeans ourselves (which isn’t pretty), or throw them out completely. When you pay a lot of money for a piece of clothing, it can be hard to let it go. That’s where Denim Therapy comes in.

Based in New York’s Garment District, Denim Therapy’s goal is to fix any hole, hem, or broken denim regardless of damage severity. Their website says that they care for your denim like it was their own. You don’t have to live in NYC to use Denim Therapy; you simply send them the denim in question and they take care of the rest.

Why send your jeans to DT instead of your local tailor? Denim Therapy specializes in making your jeans as good as new, no matter what kind of damage you’ve rained down upon them. The estimated denim repair cost is $7/inch, which isn’t bad if you’re repairing your favorite pair of expensive jeans. Once you send them your denim (at an average shipping cost of $12, according to the site), they’ll provide you with an estimate and start work when you give your approval.

Denim Therapy also offers services you can’t find anywhere else. In addition to reparing your denim, they can dye your jeans, turn them into maternity jeans, and resize them if they’re a bit too large for you. Prices vary depending on what service you need, but consider Denim Therapy when you need your jeans altered in a way that your local tailor probably can’t handle.

anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out Nordstrom.com or Macys.com? Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!

Chubstr,  I find that Sizes vs fitment to be wide open when it comes to clothes for my body type.  I am 6'3" 320lbs  Which for my style ends up being a 40"x32" waist slim fit,low rise jean and anything from a 2XLT to a 4X depending on the cut of the shirt.  See the problem a guy like me has is what I call the "in-betweener"  I can't shop at most normal stores because everything is "FAT man in a little shirt" and then stepping into a Big and tall store (read: Conservative and Frumpy) and I'm the guy that is now tall enough, but not wide enough. Destination XL has done a good job re-branding themselves with more fashionable clothes, but they still are not fashion forward enough for me.

anthonymg Thanks for the comment Anthony! If you can tell us what your sizes are, we can point you in the right direction. We definitely try to feature clothing in sizes as large as we can find them available, but sometimes they are difficult to find. You'll see a lot of options on the site that go to 5X or 6X. This particular post is a reader photo submission, so this guy has shared specifically what he's wearing and where he got it, which isn't always available in every size. Since it's a reader photo submission, the clothing is based on the size of the gent in the photo. Hope this helps! Check out our resources section and feel free to tell us your sizes and what specifically you're looking for and we'll help you out. Thanks for checking out Chubstr!

Werd!  6'3" 320lbs seems to be to big for most of the fashion that I am finding here.  To big, yet to small for "Big and Tall"
