Heyoooooo!! I’m very excited to announce my first video is up on the Gent’s Lounge YouTube page!

I’ve always been a big fan of doctoring clothes to turn something old into something new. Therefore I wanted to show off one of my favorite moves, the DIY Mandarin Collar. I sported it back in the day in my Summer Scarf post, if you want to get a better idea as to what I’m talking about.

Essentially it’s just a simple casual shirt I bought awhile back at Gap and stopped wearing because the collar had loosened up. I decided it would be fun to cut the collar and see what happened. Since then I’ve done this to countless more shirts.

Check out the video below and let me know of some other DIY ideas you’d like to see!
