DIY inspiration: recycle

The thing that i like about this jacket from Gestuz is that it looks like it has been put together with three different jackets. We all know that some parts of a cloth tend to get ruined more than others so when cuffs and collars or elbows look worn we throw the cloth away.
These are the days of fast fashion,cheap cloths we buy and then toss,we don't repair cloths anymore. But repair doesn't mean "put a patch on it",with some creativity we can sew or decorate a all new cloth like this jacket,something special we can't buy in a shop.
So next time your favorite piece of cloth (like my leather jacket) gets ruined,instead of tossing it,get creative and upgrade it!
