JEANIOUS HACKS

#3 The uneven hem

Along being in love with the current denim customisation street style trend, we’re also in love with shoes. A lot. And to make your jeans and shoes a seriously stunning style story made in denim heaven, our denim department concept designer, Alex, shared this jeanious hack: the uneven hem. 

You will need

  • Sharp scissors 
  • Tape measure or ruler
  • Chalk
  • Jeans: an original 100% organic cotton denim pair like Kimomo or Taiki work best.

Step 1: Mark them

Mark a straight line across on the front panel of your jeans around 7cm up from the bottom.

Step 2: Cut them

First cut up the front panel of the jeans, 1/2 cm in from the side hem. You don’t want to cut directly on the hem. Then, cut across the jeans following the chalk line you marked. Pro tip: Using your fingers, pull at the loose threads and fray the raw edges a little. Over time and washing these the raw hem will naturally fray more.

Step 3: Wear them

Your new uneven hems are ready to to frame a killer pair of shoes like our lace ups.
