It's nice to be all under one roof:-)

How do you follow up the delicious, smoldering Edward? How indeed. Decidedly not possible; but you can wear him at any rate. . .
We have created a new category in our Custom Order line - the U Pick U Design group. We show the shirt and you chose whether you want it cut as a Tube Top or a Halter Top. To your specific measurements, of course.
To begin with... here are a few of the shirts:

Here's why we should NEVER forget to donate cast-off clothing!It pays off; it really, really does. The Council for Textile Recycling has a terrific graphic demonstrating just how successful textile recycling can be. Click here to see in better detail.
No one has ever accused me of being a numbers person... BUT data like these make my pulse race:
* Every 1000 lbs of donated textiles when recycled generates 2 man days of labor!
* Only 5% of textiles that are recycled ends up as waste! 5%! That's amazing considering that according to the EPA 5% of landfill is clothing:-/

For the last few months I've been wallowing in my favorite punk and surf punk bands again (Black Flag, Agent Orange, Cro-Mags), dusting them off after years of neglect. And then I read about the Met's Punk-Chaos-to-Couture event. Serendipitous a wee bit. Everyone's celebrating the punk past...
From NYMag there are some great photos in this slide show of music scene photos by Janette Beckman.
Doesn't Adam Ant (r) look amazing? Head-to-toe leather w/ cowboy talls + kilt; love. So many designers have riffed on this look ever since the early 80s haven't they?
And this has to be the coolest biker jacket I've ever seen, shown on a bloke called Eddie (center) from Tenpole Tudor:

Have you seen the new Custom Order Halters?
Send us your favorite concert T, school spirit T, race T, etc., and we will happily upcycle it into a fantastic halter top just in time for the heatwave sure to hit us soon.
|Order a Halter in the Name of the Law Here|
|Carefully designed for good side coverage|
Fit considerations: Halter in the Name of the Law is carefully designed to reduce the dreaded "side boob" problem, has an adjustable waist fit and neckline that can be draped several ways depending on your mood. Enjoy!

|Thank you, Ecouterre for these brilliant wake-up-calls|
The sensible way to avoid these horrendous aspects of the (current, but hopefully changing?) international garment industry is to buy ORGANIC, Upcycled, MADE IN THE USA.
You didn't think we'd miss a segue into self-promotion here did you? Not on your life:-)
How about this instead -
