For The Boys

Fellas, are you feeling jealous that it’s always the ladies that get the lux embroidered goods? Dolce and Gabbana has you sorted this year with their Autumn-Winter 2012-2013 collection featuring an array of stunning embroidered items. Everything from boots to coats get a gorgeous coating of gold stitches.






Sorry ladies. This one is for the boys. Now, who wants to figure out how to hoop up combat boots and try and stitch metallic thread onto leather?

    ok, I’ll ask…just HOW DO you hoop combat boots for embroidery? I wore them once and I know that this probably isn’t what it seems to be. Care to share your secrets? : ) thanks!

    Are they done on wss stabilizer and glued on? That’s my guess for the boots. Love them and the coat back.

    hmm… would take some experimenting with needles and sew before you construct. Of course you could find a more pliable leather… I think I’d be afraid of throwing my home machine out of timing trying. Would definitely be stuck at half speed. You shouldn’t tempt me… I have 4 shoe projects “mid stream” right now as it is. (but I did by a short run of narrow flat lasts- woo hoo for me!)

    The new Ralph Lauren Collection is also featuring lace on collars, cuffs and pocket flaps on a blazer and also, in GOLD, allover a short Bullfighter jacket. Also the lace look in cutout leather for a purse. Check out the April issue of Vanity Fair, inside front cover pullout and page 32.
