I’ve compared Nancy’s work to other tailors with similar services and her repairs both looked and felt better. She’s able to repair denim without a stiff patch…she sort of restitches the fabric so it still feels soft and worn-in. Sending another pair her way!

Denim Hospital FAQs

How much does Denim Hospital cost?

DENIM HOSPITAL cannot give an estimate on a repair until the item is received and diagnosed by the Denim Doctor. Repairs can be as little as $14.00 and up.

Does Denim Hospital patch?

DENIM HOSPITAL has various ways of repairing. Our most popular, of course, is our inJEANious repair procedure. It is reconstructing the actual denim fabric itself. In some cases, however, the DENIM DOCTOR will make the decision to CODE BLUE your “blues” because they are too heavily damaged and worn. That is when our inJEANious denim repair is not recommended. DENIM HOSPITAL can then offer you other options such as regular denim patching repair, or vintage fabric patching. Check out the photos on our website for samples of these procedures.

What happens if I am not satisfied with the results of my repair?

DENIM HOSPITAL has a long history of positive and satisfied customers. We only guarantee that we will try our very best to repair your “blues” to the best that DENIM HOSPITAL possibly can. We are not responsible for disagreement or results.

What if I need my jeans immediately?

DENIM HOSPITAL will then admit you to DENIM EMERGENCY. We can only guarantee a quick turnaround if you respond via email ( and approve your denim diagnosis IMMEDIATELY (within 24 hours). There will be an additional charge for this E.R. service.

What if I am not local?

DENIM HOSPITAL operates out of Port Washington, NY. Not local? Contact Us and we’ll see if we can make arrangements.
