Oh my bad, I thought GATs were a particular style of Margiela sneakers
washing leathers also is a bad idea because it dries them out
Yeah, for something like a shirt, I would probably look into a better dye like the procion since you usually wash them after every wearing,
For pants or jackets, I have done quite well with the rit dyes that you can get in supermarkets/craft stores (though I hear the dylon ones are better) which are incredibly simple to use. A little salt, detergent, and/or vinegar can be used along the way but all you really need are dye and water.
You can even dye some plastics with rit...I've done a pair of sunglasses (originally clear or white plastic only...hard to dye something alread a dark color) and it meant that when I dyed my jacket orange, the buttons shifted to be a better match
OKAY first of all LOL.
Second, in YOUR opinion, the result is mediocre, the original idea is not attractive etc. etc.
I don't give two fucks if you don't get why i did this.
The sneakers were already very beat up and I wanted to try something different.
What really pisses me off is how you say you are just voicing an opinion but at the same time you are trying to dissuade people from doing it by forcing your opinion onto them.
If they like how it looks then they'll do it, if not, they won't.
Seriously, I paid like $15 for the sneakers, idgaf.
I'm going to have to look into dyeing shirts as well. Just came back from a trip and had a bottle of red wine bust in my bag. Now I have a blue/stained purple ocbd and a white/stained polo to experiment with... Not quite sure what I'll do yet
50's missing a passenger, me thinks
"Not cute" would be more correct
He said "not attractive" in reference to the idea of painting the GATs.
He said "not cute" in reference to both critical types and painting the GATs, but I liked the sound of "not attractive" more.
I stand by my picture.
Nah, was thinking more along the lines of
lmao you guys are hilarious
I'd be more inclined to agree about altering the MMM trainers if they were not bullshit to begin with (cheap/regular shoes created exclusively so ppl like Usher can drop $500 on shooz). That said, I like the look of the regular white painted ones...
