Jeans are a staple of today’s wardrobe, but it can be hard to find the perfect pair. Shape My Jeans can banish gaping waistbands from your closet forever. With their custom design service that has attracted event the producers of Shark Tank, they specialize in hand-make jeans, skirts, shirts and dresses.
The process starts with a consultation that covers what kind of jeans the client wants and a little about his or her lifestyle. They don’t use patterns; they take measurements and work through as many fittings as it takes to get the jeans just right. Once the jeans are made, a mock pair is kept in the store for future orders.
“We want to know you so we can get the right fit for you,” said Alicia Lawson, who started the company with her daughter, Arlinda Williams.
They use denim made in America in 22 colors. They have dozens of thread colors and several different zipper colors, so clients can get colorful jeans to match a pair of shoes or slimming black jeans to wear to the office. They even make maternity jeans, and then re-tailor them so the client can wear them after the baby arrives.
Shape My Jeans custom jeans are $169 a pair, plus a $25 set up fee.
