    That sounds good, though the streaks might still be there after you dye them, just not as prominent. I assume you mean like a black overdye (cool) but you could go all-in with some natural indigo dye (cooler).


    EDIT: GM-H, holy shit!

    Yeah, I was thinking indigo. Not sure it's going to do much for the value and it obviously subtracts from the bottom line but I actually have a pair of khaki colored canvas shorts that I want to dye indigo, since I have another khaki pair I like better...

    I don't know, I'm on the fence.

    Edit: FrankCowperwood did a killer job on a pair of Epaulet Willies and a chore coat. See Epaulet thread (about a month back) if you're interested. I was going to follow his method.

    Went garage sale-ing this weekend. All I nabbed was a NWT Nike T-Shirt in my size for $1.

    It's literally hit or miss.

    Oh, yeah. That sounds really cool. I don't know how experienced you are tinkering with things, but the only thing I could add from my experience would be to make sure the jeans actually fit well, will be something you'll wear, and not too cumbersome somehow to discourage use. I've fallen victim to all of these.

    Yep... I put up with their condescending attitudes long enough to buy them.

    Do you have the pants with this, or is this an orphan? If no pants, can you return it? 3 button pinstripe with no pants is hard to move.
