How does one funk his/her junk?
There are so many cool ways to funk your junk. It’s all about looking at an item and thinking about what it could become. It’s about using old fabrics and materials to create an unforgettable clothing item with great history behind it. In our jeans section, you can find previously loved jeans that have been embroidered, patched, distressed and refurbished into a new pair of stylish jeans!
