Your Complete Guide To Customized Fashion
As kids we begged our parents to buy us the same shoes everyone was wearing at school. Ironically, now as adults we’d do anything to stand out. Aside from tattoos and funky haircuts, the easiest, simplest and quickest way to project your uniqueness and individuality is through customized fashion.
There’s an appeal and a degree of smug that comes with knowing that no one else is going to have a pair of stonewash jeans ripped to your specific liking, that boasts patches you chose ironed on, squiggles in yellow thread decorating each pocket, peace signs drawn with ballpoint pen and the words “SAVED BY ROCK N’ ROLL” embroidered in red chainstitch on the waistband. Boom! We get it.
It’s that desire for these unique, specially made, beacons of self expression, that have pushed brands such as Levi’s to deliver full design-it-yourself services. Add some attitude with patches from Etsy and pins from Pintrill, or find your nearest Levi’s Tailor Shop for more permanent flair with embroidery, stenciling and distressing. There’s only two rules: get creative and make it your own. On that note, I present to you my complete customization mood board and bank of ideas. Your personalized wardrobe awaits.
