On Being a Neighborhood Shop
"We run the full gamut from altering, repairing, and hemming jeans to total reconstructive surgery. Since we have a studio in the shop, we have the capability to take a pair apart and completely remake them. It's great because people in the neighborhood can stop in if they have a jean problem. For example, not too long ago this girl had an old jacket that was handed down to her by her grandfather. It was just beautiful, but completely destroyed. We managed to patch it up and make it wearable again."
