pimp my ride

Post by foxtail_grass »

I'd love to see some of your favorite custom pieces- stuff you modified or someone modified for you. Can include tailoring, embellishing, destroying etc. Anything one-of-a-kind.

I made these out of some too-small apcs that were sitting in my closet for years, some grey naked and famouses I found at a goodwill and some levis. Left the fly as a weird little pocket I never use. I've done a lot of diy/messing around with clothes out of a compulsion to make fashion a productive hobby rather than a consumptive one and these are one of the few things I can still say I'm genuinely proud of.

Opened the pockets from the inside and swapped some of the buttons around. Idk if it comes across in these pictures but imo it's much cooler with the two tone look. Kapital ring coat vibes.
I also have these jeans that are legitimately falling apart I'm trying to hang onto. Embroidered patches are from xinijia

and these fatigues that I embroidered but I also cropped and tapered them quite poorly so they hang a little weird

Embroidered/bound darts on an old knit tank top. If you've seen Kepler London, that was my inspo!

This is a cheap crosspost but these pants from my WAYWT post:

they're Dickies double-knees that I bought 14 sizes up and hacked apart to add double pleats in the front and a box pleat in the back, then cut the hems off to length

Quick experiment on an xl ribbed sweater- used cream yarn to weave a diamond mesh net. Same kind as a basketball net (o: >
I liked this sweater except it bunched at the center/waist.. the net panel cut down the bulk and helped it drape better.

double post today- a while ago I got this lime green large sweater and envisioned making it look like morning grass. I pressed layers of bleached and dyed foliage into the sweater to create plant 'shadows', then sewed free-form spiderwebs throughout. topped it off with some 'dew' beading.

inspired by one of my favorite brands, Mame Kurogouchi

The jacket component to my blu du chine (procured by my dear friend @sknss) has had a few mods. Embroidered fennel bulb (incomplete pre covid project) and flower patch (completed intra covid project) both from my dear friend @p3rn. On the other side I sewed some webbing in because the shallow pockets meant things were always falling out. It's an outfit I wear almost exclusively in the house I like to carry a lot of stuff in the pockets like pens, craft knives etc and the webbing gives them something to clip to.

Trousers haven't been modded (yet) mostly I just fixed the belt loop and pocket bags when they tore so they are movies.
