A good pair of jeans is hard to find.
Gone are the days when Levi’s solely dominated the denim market. Suddenly Joe’s appeared, Citizens of Humanity, 7 for All Man Kind, and there’s more than just the bell-bottom or flare, but the straight leg, Cigarette, Chelsea, boot cut — it can be overwhelming.
Fear not jeans hunters. Rivet, which opened in Boerum Hill three weeks ago at 151 Smith St., specializes in helping you find the perfect pair.
Rivet owner Mark Davidov, who also has a location in , has expanded his franchise that emphasizes American-made denim for men and women—and now residents in the Carroll Gardens area can have their very own derriere-helping consultation.
Employee Taylor Workman acknowledged that “buying jeans is a commitment.”
“People often try jeans on for half-an-hour or 45 minutes…We offer a consultation and try to help you find jeans that fit your body,” said Workman.
“A girl was in the store Wednesday who found a pair of jeans she loved so much she bought them in three different colors,” said Kaitlin Fitzgerald, who also works at the shop. “The Charlotte Straight Leg by AG,” the store’s most popular brand for women (J Brand takes the prize for men).
Rivet goes that extra mile to help you feel and look amazing in denim. To boot, the spacious store—which also sells bags, shoes, and other apparel—is lined with antiques Davidov collects.
Workman and Fitzgerald noted that there’s a price point in the store for everyone (their stock, on average, ranges in price from $100 to $200), but when someone's buying expensive jeans, the extra attention Rivet provides is a definite bonus.
