In my free time, I love discovering new clothing labels. For me, clothing is as cool as the unique story behind it. I appreciate creativity and thoughtfulness. Recently, I was scrolling through my Pinterest and saw these awesome patchwork shorts and knew I had to find out who made these.
I love music inspired vintage clothing, but it is hard to find rock’n’roll garments that don’t look like it was made in 2017…even if it was! I also think that when wearing this look, simplicity is key. After doing my due diligence on these shorts, I finally found their homeland- MadeWorn Rock.
MadeWorn Rock has perfected the art of creating a delicate combination of a modern and heritage aesthetic (for men and women!). Blaine Halvorson, co-creater of the notable Junk Food Clothing, created MadeWorn in 2013. Each piece is handmade, crafted with a combination of vintage and locally sourced materials. A few bands featured on their garments include Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Def Leppard, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Rolling Stones.
Each shirt is weaved by hand with organic materials in shop in Los Angeles, each print is pressed by hand, and each tiny detail is etched- can you guess- by hand. Truly a rare commodity to come by nowadays, and definitely worth the higher price to pay. Quality cannot be beat, and MadeWorn Rock offers pieces that look like they have been around forever but will last forever, and that is priceless.
This weekend I got to see one of my favorite bands, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, rock out. I got to sport my MadeWorn Rock RHCP t-shirt.
More photos of how I styled the shirt to come… this is all I had at hand (sorry, Zack!).
I could wear this shirt everyday, it is so comfortable. It’s fit is a great balance between slightly oversized and distressed yet feminine. If you purchase, I recommend sizing down or staying true to your size.
It was very hard to find this shirt because MadeWorn is always selling out, which isn’t a surprise. If you find a shirt you love and it is sold out, try googling it by it’s exact name. Numerous boutiques in LA or NY who have an online presence will have a small inventory of these shirts- that’s how I found mine. They also love giving 10-20% off first time shoppers, which goes a long way when purchasing an item that is on the pricer side.
Checkout some of my fave pieces below. Also, please don’t be mad at me when you check the prices on some of these after you’ve already fallen in love… as they say don’t shoot the messenger! As condolences for that, checkout Brandy Melville’s graphics section, they have a dope selection of more affordable band tees.
