New bag designs




So here is a post of my own work finally....these fotos are terrible because I took them at home and not in the studio. But regardless here is a new messenger bag I designed and made...it is very simple because I made it to specifically hold my new black macbook...the other cases didn't do anything for me. It is made from a distressed brown leather, that is buttery soft and garment weight and it is lined with a mustard colored cotton broadcloth and topstitched with yellow linen thread. All of the hardware, d-rings, clasps, snaps etc are all solid brass and very good quality. I would love to recieve some input as too anyone's thoughts on it. I know it is very simple, and it is meant to be, very utilitarian and minimalistic....I will come out with a more ornate and elaborate one soon.

Drifter sample sale...


I just purchased a few choice t shirts from the Drifter sample sale. Drifter is a company based out of California that imagines some amazing t shirt and hoodie designs for men, and they have a wealth of tops for women as well, I'm not as well versed in their female line, my apologies. However they are currently having a sample sale where their normally fifty dollar t shirts are going for 30 or less which is phenomenal, I feel a little guilty spending a bill on two t shirts. But I encourage you all to stop by their online store http://www.drifteronline.com they have a large selection of shirts with most sizes still available. They have two different types of mens t shirts, one that is double layered with supima cotton, with a typical hem on one layer and a rolled hem on the other. Then they have their more worn in t shirts that are single layered with wearing, salt washes, bleaching and distressing on the ribbing and hem. I own a few of each and I adore them, the sizes run fairly true to size, but they are not very tight, fitted but not skin tight which I am preferring more and more these days. The only thing that made me truly sad was that there are no hoodies on sale in the sample sale, I have been in the market for a distressed and artisanally printed graphic hoody, but I am finding it difficult to discover one priced under one fifty, if anyone out there knows of a company please leave me a comment I would love to know. If I have any luck I will post on it very soon.

About me

  • I'm Ruffian1985
  • From Columbus, Ohio
  • I'm a fashion designer with an interesting view on the mainstream, I can't stand it. I prefer to indulge and immerse myself in the independent realm which is still untouched by the evil hand of all that is high fashion and trend. I am an agnostic pro choicer for all of you out there who care about all of that...politics frankly disgust me so I choose not to partake in them. I am not old however I am not young, I am something all together different, incredibly opinionated yet very understanding and receptive. This is only disturbing the surface of a very deep well, if you really wish to know more about me then read my periodical blog posts, which should be filled with all kinds of juicy tidbits and such...
