This one’s for the boys. I always love a good collab, especially one that encourages craftiness. And one that encourages the gents to get crafty? Even better. Meet Original Penguin x Nick Wooster. This is a really fun DIY spin that Original Penguin has put on their popular garment dyed chinos… I hope more brands follow suit. If you don’t know who Nick Wooster is, he’s kind of a badass and quite the street style icon. Just google him. Nick created three stencils (polka-dots, neon stripes, and an allover penguin print,) to be used on shorts and chinos. So clever – and so perfect for summer! The brand will be selling the DIY kits in select retail markets, but even better, you can download the stencils here. So. Incredibly. Awesome.
I mean really – neon polka dots? Amazing. My boyfriend would never rock this, but he’s more of a classics sort of guy. I kinda want my own stencil to DIY my own jeans and cut-offs this summer.
