Even I know that I shouldn’t be pulling my jeans up by the belt loops – they’re not built to withstand so much pressure – but I do it anyways. So, what happens when I tear a belt loop?
No one wants to wear jeans that are unnecessarily distressed, and there is absolutely nothing that looks less put together than a torn belt loop (except maybe jeans with a ragged hem). Here is a quick and easy way t0 repair your jeans yourself:
Fix a Torn Belt Loop
A pair of jeans
Excess denim for patching (Don’t have extra denim lying around? We recommend Johnny Patch patches – they’re affordable, easy to use and soft!)
Thread – Blue (or color that matches jeans) and Gold (or color that matches thread)
1. Patch the torn hole with a piece of denim from inside the waistband. Using iron-on denim is fine.
2. Remove the excess thread from the belt loop.
3. Using a sewing machine, stitch back and forth across the end of the loop.
Have you ever torn a belt loop before? How did you do it?
