Aside from being buried under a heap of fabric and paperwork, I've recently collaborated with ASOS and Levi, giving me the chance to pick out a couple of bits, have them customised and then 'rock' them at a gig.
I went for a classic Trucker jacket, and a pair of simple high rise jeans in grey and then had Levi's very own tailor customise them however I wanted. Pretty cool, and a welcome break from all the sewing I've been doing myself lately.
I decided to have lots of distressing and wear-and-tear added to my jacket, making it look a bit more vintage. I also had all the pockets studded up and my initials sewn onto the underside of the collar, because who else has their name under their collar? For the jeans I opted for two big cuts in the knees and some distressing around them.
You can pop into any Levi store with a tailor and get anything customised by adding studs, sewing on patches, ripping, repairing etc! The tailor actually suggested that I cut the collar and sleeves off my jacket, so I'm sure you can get as creative as you fancy. Alternatively, you can check out some how-to's and get all the ASOS low down here instead.
I also got the chance to go and see Hozier in my new garms, but more on that in my next post.
Catch you all soon,
