ABOUT DETROIT DENIM
As a youth, Eric Yelsma, the founder of Detroit Denim, discovered his knack for using a sewing machine. Little did he know that some 20 years later his hobby would become a passion driven movement for quality American jeans. His idea for the best-jean-possible focuses of the relationship between the maker and customer.
Detroit Denim encourages their customers to make their jeans last as long as possible. Often with a few simple (and not so simple) repairs, you can get many more miles from your jeans. All Detroit Denim will receive FREE repairs for LIFE! Yes, they are $250 a piece for their 5 styles of men's jeans (more for a custom pair), but think about the cost you spend on jeans and how long they last....
Detroit Denim uses their dedicated repair machines (darning, zig-sag, chain-stitch, and walking foot) to provide a durable, secure and aesthetic repair that will extend the life and wear of your jeans.
Ladies, don't feel like you are forgotten, Detroit Denim will have jeans for females this summer, so make sure you take a look at their new website also launching this month or visit the store.
There is a possibility of other denim goods (maybe a JACKET!) Limited edition styles are also available throughout the year, so make sure to keep an eye out. Take time to treat yourself to a quality pair of denim especially from our friends at Detroit Denim!

The Detroit Denim Store is Opening this Month!
Located on Franklin Street near Stroh's Riverplace, Atwater Brewery, and the Rattlesnake Club, Detroit Denim is preparing a "soft" opening this month. The space allows you to view the preparation of their many denim goods which aren't limited to jeans. They craft gorgeous denim aprons that are used by several local restaurants, including Townhouse, as well as bags, and key chains.
Detroit Denim is proud to make products not only in the USA but DETROIT! There isn't a specific demographic these jeans are for and the sales prove that.
