I’m sure at this point you have pulled the sweaters out. Today’s style inspiration comes from those sweaters with the super cool professor-like elbow patches. They are great for layering and staying warm this winter.
Here are some real beauties we found. Best news yet? There are three ways to acquire one.
1. Purchase one (duh)
2. Mention it as a gift idea this holiday season.
3. Simply add some elbow patches to your favorite sweater or cardigan.
So you just ordered a whole new slew of custom dress shirts…but what to do with the ones with stains, ring around the collar, and small tears? Most of the time, damaged shirts won’t necessarily be accepted for donation. Here are a few great ideas if you are like me and hate adding to the millions of pounds of trash we humans are accumulating.
I can also see the above as a cool piece of wall art. Either way, find some inspiration here.
Moving on from your old dress shirts, you may even find some cool new ways to present other menswear items.
Nearing the holidays, (I am in no way rushing through Thanksgiving like those annoying retail stores often do) what about thinking OUTSIDE the box? Try wrapping the dress shirt (gift) over an empty box for a tailored wrap.
If you are a man into design as well as style, take a look at this re-use of menswear to reupholster chairs. Wow.
