If you’ve had your denim for years, join the club. San Francisco pro linebacker Fred Warner is even a member of the squad. To prove it, Warner recently visited his local Levi’s® Tailor Shop in this Tricks of the Tailor clip to show that denim is made to last a lifetime… rips and holes included.

In fact, wear and tear only adds character to Warner’s clothes. And Levi’s® knows it. With sustainability as a core value, the brand encourages customers to stop contributing to textile waste, instead urging people to visit their own Levi’s® Tailor Shop to customize, repair, and bring new life to their denim garments. Alongside these solutions—which are part of Levi’s® Buy Better, Wear Longer initiative—the brand has also invested in more sustainable production practices. Its water finishing processes and water recycling procedures have helped the brand save over 4 billion liters of water and resulted in the recycling of close to 10 billion liters of water since they were introduced.

Ready to do your part to help save the planet with your pair of jeans? Well, select Levi’s® Tailor Shops worldwide are prepared to assist you. As Warner’s Tricks of the Tailor video shows, darning and distressing are a few techniques Levi’s® master tailors might use to extend the life of your denim. But they have many more. So keep scrolling to get a peek at the tailors’ complete playbook, which just received star athlete’s stamp of approval.
