Repurposed Shirt #4

An uber-mundane man's business shirt has been altered in the following ways: 1) collar has been removed and neck band restitched; 2) side seams have been picked open and reseamed to allow for a vent slit in each side (necessary to avoid the unattractive balloon-back look you get otherwise with many men's shirts); 3) buttons have been switched out for vintage versions; 4) three vintage silk ties have been sewn together in the portion that drapes over the shirt neck, and a large single snap attaches the ties to the shirt to allow for removal during laundering. Total cost: $7.50 (without the buttons, but then buttons are forever and shouldn't be totaled into the cost)
