Meet Fox. A denim lover, designer, and customizer based in sunny LA. FOXHOLE teamed up with GRLFRND denim and Barneys New York this summer for a custom embroidery event to benefit HOLA. (Heart of Los Angeles is a non-profit that provides underserved youth with exceptional programs in academics, arts and athletics.) Don’t live in LA? You don’t have to live on the West Coast to take advantage of Fox’s denim services. I just dropped a pair of jeans in the mail for some overdue mending and a surprise custom embroidery. Check out our interview below and follow Fox and Jeff @thefoxhole on Instagram and breathe new life in to any piece of denim in your closet. Embroidery is hot on the fashion scene; think creatively and request a custom design that’s totally unique to you. –SoS

SoS: How Was The Foxhole Born?
Fox: I met my husband 6 years ago at the Echo in Los Angeles and it all started then. My name is Fox and he is a US Army Veteran so FOXHOLE just clicked. I have been designing denim for over 10 years and he had a knack for collecting interesting objects such as patches, pins, hats and teeshirts. We put our powers together and formed FOXHOLE. We started as a popup swapmeet in our back parking lot and doing festivals and flea markets like the rose bowl and FYF Fest in Los Angeles. Once we found our location in Silverlake it just took off from there. We tailor, customize and repair denim as well as make household items and art out of recycled denim. We sell vintage sports tees, Harley Davidson garb and just cool old rad shit we like as well as vintage denim, duh.
