“You can bend it, wear it and put it in washing machine with no worries”
From London Fashion Week Men’s SS18, some of the embroidered details stood out from the streetwear designers. An embellished reptile embroidered crewneck t-shirt for Cottweiler and the Fila logo patched onto a striped long sleeve t-shirt or a multi-coloured polo shirt for Liam Hodges and an ocean wave pattern embroidered onto a red check printed denim jacket for Band of Outsiders.
When you buy a graphic printed t-shirt or any printed clothing, no matter where you buy it – either from the market or from high end designer brands – the print will inevitably crack one day. If you are the one who’s really picky about the conditions of your clothing, and concern about buying a printed t-shirt, an embroidered t-shirt is the answer. With embroidered clothing, they certainly have longer life than any printing detailed pieces. You can bend it, wear it and put it in washing machine with no worries.
