“This is definitely the most fucked crotch I’ve ever seen”

Here’s how Rain and the crew at Darn-It! fix the catastrophically blown-out crotch of your old Levi’s in under an hour… (What? It’s like a year’s worth of mosh pits and bike rides and street fights is all.)

First, an examination:

“This is definitely the most fucked crotch I’ve ever seen,” says Rain, “And I’ve seen a lot of crotches.”

Then some ironing:

Trimming some fat:

The most important part is coming up right after the jump…

Here’s where the magic happens. Roughly 50 solid minutes of hard-core darning:

“Your crotch is gonna feel real interesting after this,” she says. (I get that a lot.)

Then over to another machine for some heavier-duty stitching:

And then boom, good as new:

Wow! The crotch was a little stiff at first, but one night out dancing and a bike ride the next day softened it right up!

Drop your blowouts at the Self Edge storefront on Valencia Street and they’ll ferry ‘em right over to Rain and the crew and you’ll be good as new in no time.

    I could get a brand new pair for $40, but then again you probably get it done for trade.

    for a couple years in the 80s, i sewed my only pair of pants until they were mostly flannel. paying $40 for a stitch-up is a typical SF poser move.

    $40? That’s it? I have a pair of jeans I have refused to part with, if only I knew about this earlier

    Wow, that’s a bargain! I’m definitely taking my jeans there next time they wear out, especially since Levi’s stopped making the ones I prefer.
