    now dye it black, so it has fuschia undertones.

    I'm guessing it already reeks -- first from the bleach, again from the dye. We don't want mikey to end up in the ER now, do we? :(

    I don't know how you managed that. I ruined two pairs of cheap jeans (and nearly my lungs, and my eyes) after Synthese posted his bleached-out swag way back in this thread's infancy.

    Your jacket looks good, though, in that fit pic. Looks like you dropped some major $$$ on Japanese brands. :slayer:

    I´ve begun my first DIY project. Nothing major. I just grabbed a grey hoodie, cut the sleeves, and now I´m planning on putting zippers on the sides, and a cool print patch on the back, à la balmain. Will post pics of the process when it´s over.

    I started dicking around with flannel below a UU tee, which have a nice texture to them. sort of linen-y for anyone that owns them, but i didn't like the results.

    ultimately decided it doesn't really jive for the summer. will shop around for flannels and do it with those in the fall. just feeling uninspired to shop for flannel shirts right now.

    any other ideas of materials I should use? thought about 2 different denim shirts and i would just wear it how i wear a denim shirt every other day right now but I'm not sure I could bear to destroy my favorite ones :)

    I should probably just see if uniqlo still has any of theirs for cheap and go wild

    Preppy Djellaba in Madras/Fair-Isle/Chambray combo
    [​IMG]

    The Madras part has blue, green, yellow, grey in it but it's hard to see in the photo. Chambray is blue and Fair-Isle Intarsia is grey and white
    I'm working on a Buffalo-Plaid/Sailor-Stripe/British-Khaki combo next

    Ty, this went well and garnered a lot of looks good and bad. I even heard a girl say " that could have been a cute dress" lol

    The sleeves are great, not sure about the chambray bottom. Seems as though it would make the end awkwardly heavy. No?

    I wanted something solid to balance out the prints and pattern thus the blue chambray. I wore this with chinos and the chambray works well with it
