How we repaired the zipper on these jeans
As denim experts, we can observe in our example photo that the fly of these jeans came off the teeth because the factory most likely tried to save money on zippers by employing a zipper that was too long for these jeans. Even the most well-known brands could fail to recognize production issues or hire subpar factories.
The original zipper lacks a bottom metal stopper. Because of sewing, the factory counted on the zipper head running out of room to go down further than the teeth. That was not the case, as the zipper head-over-shot the teeth.
We disassembled the fly from its seams, waistband, and bar tacks. We replaced the zipper with one that contains stoppers at the top and bottom, as they should for proper performance, and then reassembled the fly. The only difference was that we used matching navy stitching on the zipper tape.
