How to Install Jeans Hardware at Home! (A video!)

How to install Jeans Hardware (including jeans buttons and rivets) at home // VIDEO // Closet Core Patterns

Hey guys! We’ve been experimenting with some video stuff around the studio. For some things you really can’t beat a moving image to quickly and easily explain tricky steps.

Now that we’re carrying a line of jeans patterns and our new jean hardware kits, I thought it would be fun to shoot a video explaining how to install jeans hardware at home. This is one of the things about jeans making that can be a little intimidating (hammers! metal things!) but it’s actually my favourite part… It’s the moment where the things you’ve been labouring over turn into professional looking jeans. If you’re nervous about installing hardware, this video will hopefully demystify the process for you. Enjoy!
