Up now on #tmaddtalks Tyler interviews our friend @benjaminbraun in an extended conversation about his jeans featured on @heddels_fades’s #fadeoftheday yesterday. We love the way Ben is wearing, washing and repairing his jeans, as he shares his philosophy on denim care, hemming and why he thinks The Flat Head is making the best jeans in the world. #theflathead #flathead3005 #indigoproof #repairyourjeans #wearyourjeans #washyourjeans #jeansclustergram #denimrepair #denimcare (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Repaired a pretty major crotch blowout on these @rogueterritory #stealthstantons for @danemffrost. These jeans have seen 600+ wears over 3 years and after these repairs, they have a ton more life left in ‘em! Don’t let a crotch blowout kill your jeans! #indigoproof #indigoproofdenimrepair #rogueterritory #denimrepair (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Yes it’s possible to hem pants that have map pockets at the hems! Even when they are riveted! Hemmed these #misterfreedom Midnight Rider’s, moved the map pockets up and re-riveted using original MF hardware. It’s all in the details πŸ” #indigoproof #indigoproofdenimrepair #midnightrider #denimrepair (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Fresh replacement pocket bags on this pair of #theflathead – you can see the same pair in progress via @rainbowe. Not all pocketbags need this much attention but these had layers of masking tape and home repairs that were ripping out. New life for these babies! #indigoproof #denimrepair #indigoproofdenimrepair (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

Had to snap a couple photos of these beautifies before picking them up and getting them back to @bcm_87 Vintage Levis with natural wear like this is the whole reason anyone cared to make the reproductions that were the basis for many of the top Japanese denim brands today. It was a real treat to work on these and it’s been a good bit of perspective on what continues to make @conedenim so special to this day, and also how impressive so many of the contemporary brands we get to work with are! #denim #denimevolution #shrinktofit #levis #501 #unsanforized #bigE #redline #vintage #60s #indigo #legtwist #indigoproof #indigoproofdenimrepair #denimrepair (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)

A video posted by INDIGO PROOF (@indigo_proof) on

Missing from the front end of this video is @rainbowe making the claim that she’s afraid of taking a bartacking video because she thinks the machine might be camera shy. I like to play with fire so I tested her theory, and all we got was this great looking belt loop replacement on a pair of 1960s 501s! @bcm_87 (at Alberta Arts District, Portland)
