Have you heard of Red Malt denim before? Prolly not– because it’s brand spanking, cutting edge, new.  Leona and Sam are the owners of this online custom denim shop. You heard me right, custom jeans. Made in Chicago!

Do you have a hard time finding jeans that fit? Well, HELLO, this is what we’re talking about. They make them to fit your Danny DeVito legs, your 7″ Shaq-ture , your Jennifer Lopez booty, your Giselle Bundchen gams, even your real live Barbie body. Send over your measurements  (no judging here, I swear) and they put your specs into their magic computer machine and get to work on your hand made jeans. These cool kids will actually make you a pair of jeans with their own hands! (Don’t boogey out now because you think that sounds expensive, cause it isn’t, it’s the same price as those jeans you have on right now).

12 machines to make a pair of blues, a machine for belt loops, seams, hems and pockets and buttons,  {I forgot the rest……} I’ve not laid a hand on a sewing machine since high school Home Ec class in the 1800’s.

No, this isn’t a robe, but this is Leona. She is cute as a Red Malt button.

red maltThey have big bolts of denim that they lay out on the table, the computer sets the knives to cut into your pattern, they sew the parts together, make the button hole and all those other details, put them in the giant washing machine for at least an hour, {depending on the wash you pick}, dry them and then put them on this “balloon” machine to get them into shape. Here they can also use a “sander” to distress the denim. They also have raw denim. If you don’t know what that means then don’t worry about it. {a tutorial here}

Since I was at Red MaltI asked Leona to take my measurements. On the website there are instructions on how to do it, you don’t even have to take your clothes off, it’s very simple. {Or if you live in the area, you can schedule an appointment  to have Sam & Leona do it.} And so my first pair of custom jeans are in the works! That is why I am calling this part 1, because when those jewels show up on my doorstep, you’ll be sure to hear all about it on part 2! In the meantime, check out their website. If you have any questions send them an email and they’ll be sure to take care of you.
