The Denim Refinery has one motto: No denim left behind. This downtown, appointment-only boutique will turn your least favorite denim into a wardrobe staple with one of five treatments. If it's soft jeans you crave, they'll break them in for you. Looking for something trendy and laid-back to cover your stems? They'll cut and snip your jeans to give them that popular distressed look. If your black denim jacket has faded, they'll fix that right up and add a leathery sheen. If you're feeling a little wild, they'll spice up your denim with leopard print or a metallic silver foil. When you get your refurbished garment back in two to three weeks, you'll wonder how you let those jeans come anywhere near the Goodwill pile. Love all your jeans already? Peruse the shop for ready-made, unique denim pieces made from some of your favorite brands. And if you prefer to shop from the comfort of your couch, all these services can be purchased on the World Wide Web. 527 W. Seventh St., Suite 808, dwntwn., 90017. (310) 800-6135, —Anya Cohen
