    no..that order was on purpose...thats exactly what you requested for me to proxy to you because you were too embarrassed to walk into Firefly and ask for them yourself. I told you just to go to Sugar, but you said you are always hanging out at Patterson Park cruising for twinks.

    It's not just that it says 'yolo', it's that he hashtagged it!

    If that's pen and not hand-stitched, I take back everything I said.

    I'm brainstorming some caz monograms - maybe a single #? Maybe bawss down the right forearm? WIWRN across the yoke?

    I'm open to suggestions.

    Can you write on shirts with pen? Wouldn't that become one big stain once you wash it?

    How about "pick a film character; now pick an outfit they might wear, without completely copying them"?

    #baller sounds cool ;-)

    Btw: the monogram is handstichted (by me, explaining the sloppyness). I already made some other ones, will post pics when I have pics.

    That is doubly awesome.

    I think I might straight up swagjack your #YOLO - if I can convince any one of two fairly conservative shirtmakers to do it...

    That's a great idea, I'll keep it in mind! I've been searching the forum, but it's hard to think of a challenge that hasn't been done before.
    That's awesome! Just out of curiosity, how hard is it stitch something like that?

    Because you only live once. ... Unless you're Buddhist in the which case, no spoilers.

    Hahaha loved the second part, but no, I'm no Buddhist. I know what it means but the interwebz gave a whole bunch of new meaning to it like "You Only Lifted Once". [​IMG]

    In the first round of challenges there was a pattern mixing Friday, I think trying a 4 pattern combo whilst maintaining a, relatively, conservative & coherent look could be a good learning experience/challenge for many of us?
    or we could just do best monogram!

    congrats to MonkeyFace, a well deserved winner (although I voted for TTO & Tirailieur).

    Looking forward to the new challenge!
