It’s no surprise that everyone, their mother and their mothers’ ex’s mistress is obsessed with embroidery. I have fallen in love with the craze and sought out some of the best places to get your own digs customized. East and west coast, north and south – here are the guys that are doing the best needle and thread work.
Lot, Stock and Barrel (LA): These guys are the real deal. Not only do they have retail stores (emphases on the “s”) but they can customize and design anything. I came across them because of a girlfriend who posted customized jeans she got from GRLFND DENIM and after doing some research, I realized Lot, Stock and Barrel do all of their embroidery. I’m into it and want a pair with the back ankles of the jeans customized.
Madewell (Nationwide): Yes, Madewell! They actually do denim Monogramming and if you happen to be a Madewell insider, then it is 100% free with the purchase of the jeans. You have to call them up and place the order over the phone…I know, not ideal…but still, it’s a pretty good steal.
Semi Nice Label (TBD): Although they haven’t “officially” launched, they already have Karlie Kloss on their home page with a customized jacket so we can only assume there are good things to come. By taking a look at their Instagram, they seem to love everything I do – odd slurs, pink fuzzy stuff and glitter. Now they just need to launch so I can buy something.
That’s all for now but if I missed one, shoot it in the comments and ill take a look.
