Your Perfect Pair
The on-site setup from the Blues Jean Bar. (Yes, it’s Blues Jean Bar, not Blue Jeans Bar—the founder’s goal was to recreate the laid-back feeling of a blues bar.) Attendees work with a “jeantender” to find their perfect color, cut, size, and brand. The company brings several high-end brands (Joe’s, Paige Premium, James) as well as smaller brands that may end up as new favorites. The company has fitted up to 700 attendees.
Price: $125 to $250 per person, including the jeans and the fitters’ time and travel
