I guess it's a good way to sell one-off pieces? I actually really like the Urban Renewal stuff. Sometimes reworked vintage can look pretty sloppy, but wow, do I ever want one of their army surplus jackets with the ruffle!
yeah, it does make the most sense for them i'm sure..and i'm sure all these vintage clothing sellers are on their radar..so far i don't think urban's ebay stuff has been reworked at all, like it usually was. ..i haven't seen this army ruffle jacket..where is it? sounds cute!
It's here.I found a boys' blazer in a thrift shop for $4 and totally copied them and did this to it (basically chopped the sleeves and rounded the collar -- and put in a new lining! It was a lot of work!).
Thanks for your comments! I try to always respond.
