How to Hem Your Denim: Hem Gems Review and Giveaway

by Jaime on July 19, 2010

As we all know, I’m kind of short. It’s nothing that a couple of bucks at the tailor won’t solve, but I do have a few pairs of jeans that I’d like to keep long but still sometimes wear with heels and flats.

That’s where Hem Gems comes in!

These heavy-duty studs (they’re extremely well-made… I was really impressed by the quality) will go through a handful of layers of denim, close with their backing and stay in place all day. I tested them on my Marc by Marc Jacobs Chrissie Skinny, and here’s how they looked up close:

But don’t take my word for it!

Five (yes, FIVE!) lucky readers will receive a set of eight Hem Gems (a $20 value) for absolutely free!

Mandatory Entry:

1. Leave a comment telling me which pair of jeans you’d use your Hem Gems for!

Extra Entries (please leave a separate comment for EACH):

1. Sign up for DenimDebutante.com emails (you must confirm for this to count).
2. Follow Denim Debutante on Twitter
3. Tweet the following message (up to 5x a day):

Win one of five Hem Gems! New #giveaway from @DenimDebutante! http://wp.me/pTPbc-RA (Please RT!)

4. “Like” DenimDebutante.com on Facebook
5. Get the DenimDebutante.com Button and put it on your site.
6. Write about this giveaway on your blog!
7. Follow Denim Debutante on Bloglovin’.

You have one week – until July 26, 2010 - to get your entries in… and believe me, you’ll want to be one of the five winners! Good luck!

Love,
JP

I would use these on my maternity jeans, which are too long! They look great rolled up for spring/summer but we’re going camping where it’s colder and I want them to look good and not drag on the ground. Pregnant girls gotta look good too, SHOOT. :)

Most of the jeans I bought are long for me, so I might have to use these with all my jeans

I have a pair of jeans that are perfect and I love to wear them year round. But sometimes, long jeans just seem to heave in the summer. I’d love these to make them into shorter jeans for the summer, then back to long ones to wear with boots in the winter.

These are great for those times when you need a quick fix before you can get to the tailors!

I would love to try them on these Taylor Jacobson Kasil Jeans. http://iheartgreatdesign.com/taylor-jacobson-by-kasil-workshop

Jeans are ALWAYS too long for me, plus I like to wear flats in the summer and high-heeled boots in winter, but I don’t want separate jeans for different seasons!! I would totally use these on my J.Crew jeans!

I have a pair of Not Your Daughter’s Jeans that are too long. These Hem Gems would be perfect!

I would use these on my Seven jeans. I’m glad I got them hemmed to fit me in heels, cause now I can use Hem Gems and wear them with everything! It’s not fair that you shell out 150 for a pair of jeans and then have to decide if your only gonna wear them with heels or flats. The simplicity of it all is what makes it genius. Ive actually tried using tape and staples to hold up my hems in emergencies, but it never stays and always comes undone at the most awkward times.

I only have one pair of jeans that don’t skim the floor, that I don’t have to fold up the legs at all. I’d use Hem Gems on all my other ones, definitely my Banana Republic jeans since they’re the best for the office!
