HANCOCK PARK—Denim shop Self Edge at 144 N La Brea is now offering a flat rate for all sorts of repairs. Pay just $40 for a job of any size, and only $20 if what you're bringing in was purchased at the boutique. Their methods include the use of a 1950's Singer darning machine, which they assert can fix holes without the need for patching. [Racked Inbox]
