Second that with the buckles. I am always on the look out for awesome simple buckles in something like brass for my 1" belts.

 

In fact if you ever want to collab on some unique belts, let me know.

 

Something like cause&effect

You should try making jewelry. I remember that one guy making nail rings like Margiela. You can also try making bracelets and other stuff. You can try looking at Philips Crangi's stuff.

So a few months back i decided to make myself a pair of pants with the help of my dads tailor. i brought him some measurements and a crappy pattern and we made them into something wearable. then the exciting part happened! I had got the opportunity to intern with peir wu smile.gif
fast forward a couple months and ppl were still asking me to create the pants for them. So i decided to ask peir and it has been a long process but we finally launched them two weeks ago!

its such an amazing feeling to develop an idea into an actual product. i could not be happier with the result!

i received my sample pair and have been living in them for the past two weeks drool.gif
cannot wait to get umit benan creepers and wear with peir wu ss14 mmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!


DAT DRAPE

I had two identical pairs of these 3Sixteens so decided to bleach one.

edit: not sure if this was clear in the original post, but I don't consider the green cloth gloves to be a finished version! Just a test I thought I'd share before doing some more substantial materials smile.gif

More MA+ diy:

Wanted these gloves, can't justify $450 price tag:



So I cut up an old green pillowcase to fuck around with how the gloves would work in 3D, and eventually got a pattern for it.



Traced my pattern onto more sickly green pillow-cloth, pinned up the seams, and sewed them up and trimmed. Here's what I got!







I think now that I have the pattern and proof that it works, I might try a version in heavy linen, and if that works, I will see if my sewing machine's boast that it can handle 20 oz. denim is legit, and try it on some super super thin lamb leather biggrin.gif
