Based in Newcastle is Darned Fine Workshop who sell handmade men’s and women’s clothing AND offer a full denim repair service. They’re kind of amazing.

Everything about Darned Fine Workshop screams quality. Their garments – which can be made to order – are the very embodiment of the phrase: buy wise, buy well, buy once. I particularly like their ‘RE-Structured’ range (which includes some quite delectable bags – I’ve got my eye on a repurposed vintage 1950s British Army canvas piece of arm candy) in which unique and individually numbered pieces are restructured from deadstock and upcycled fabrics. These truly are editions of one and never to be repeated. And, as mentioned above, Darned Fine Workshop are also offering a darning, tailored alteration, and general repairs service. So, if you think that you’re going to have to say goodbye to your favourite pair of Levi’s just because the crotch has disintegrated, then think again.
