Denim Refinery has been making waves in the jeanswear game since 2011. Backed by a team of industry vets, their online customization service allows customers to revamp their go-to blues and turn them into something truly one-of-a-kind. From ombré dye jobs to leather-like waxing, the refinement options are endless. They also have a pretty sweete-shop and, starting today, a DTLA boutique.
Located at the corner of Grand and 7th across from Bottega Louie, DR's new retail/studio space features racks of awesome vintage wares and customized denim, as well as a collection of vintage pins and patches dating back to the '60s. Offering a live version of their premiere online service, customers can also bring in their own denim to have spruced up with various refinements.
Denim Refinery is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 6pm, and Saturday form 11am to 5pm. They're closed Wednesday and Sunday.
