Nick dropped in with a few items and knew exactly what we wanted. He picked up this camo shirt at Crossroads right down the street. He knew it had potential, and asked if we could slim it and hem the sleeves to short sleeve with a cuffed hem. I was definitely on board. Luckily since we were slimming the sides so much, I was able to do the cuffed hem, no problem! There you have it! Cheap consignment shirt + a little investment in tailoring = wardrobe staple.
