1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

Uses for the remainder from the jeans hem?

    I bought a pair of $200 jeans. Because I have short, stubby legs, the store cut 7 inches off each jean leg when they hemmed them.

    The store gave these two 7 inch pieces of premium denim back to me in a little plastic bag. What do I do with them?

    I could just hold on to them, washing them each time I wash my jeans so that I will have a ready supply of matching denim for repairs.

    I could stitch up one end and make a cute denim selvedge cap.

    I could make an outrÃ[​IMG] beanie baby.

    I could make a street wear watchstrap for my Rolex.

    I could try to sell them on e-bay.

    I could just throw them away

    What would you do?

    Denim wrist/head band?

    Denim condoms?

    Frame them as modern art?

    Use them as trim on another pair of jeans in a different shade?

    Small denim pouch for quarters for laundry or parking meters?

    Make a denim toiletry bag?

    Ninja mask?

    I would reattach the remainder so I could cuff 3" and still have some bunching going on.

    The denim tote on the 45RPM site is nice. With your 14" remainders, you might be able to make a small possibles/medicine bag to hang around your neck or belt, maybe fashion a bandana???

    I'd cover a journal with it.

    As we all know, cheapmutha covered a WalMart slip-on with selvage denim.

    I'd write my lady a poem on the back of the remainder. I wanna sex you up, over and over and over.

    Actually a pretty usable wallet could be made.. gear shift cover.. selvage wrist band or bowling brace.. soccer shinguards.. codpiece.. bikini (for a girl, hopefully).. the possibilities are endless.

    I save them for future patchwork. And occasional fondling. A hanging trophy collection is an idea. Or made into a necklace like those of ears.

    45rpm says: "We sometimes have interesting requests from customers. A customer, who loves playing golf, has ordered putter cover out of our denim fabric." [​IMG] or yes save it for cool patches. premium patches, for your premium denim.

    keep it so that if your jeans rip you have something to repair them with.

    By the way, I'd like to know what selvage jeans you bought, knowing that you live in Tokyo. Please divulge.
