It had never occurred to me before I started at Kill Devil Hill that a tear in a pair of jeans was reparable (apart from, perhaps, with an unsightly patch). But oh how wrong I was! If you have a pair of jeans that are full of holes (or just inappropriate thanks to one inopportune crotch hole), but you just can't bear to part with them, you are not alone. As it turns out, we Americans really love our jeans. Bring them on by the shop -- 170 Franklin St @ Java -- and we will mend your holes!
This new-found knowledge, of course, inspired me to dig out some of my old trash-bound jeans and fix them up.
