Gold leaf men’s polo refashion – tricou polo barbati in bluza

29 May

SAM_0898  Gold leaf farm, has anyone heard about it?  Google says it’s a foundation in North Carolina, that’s about it. Well, the tag behind the neck says it’s from The Limited, so I guess they manufactured some polo shirts for this Gold leaf foundation.

This men’s polo shirt is in great condition, I don’t think it’s been worn very much, reason? : the sleeves are a bit small and rigid, so if you’re a muscular dude, your arms would numb from he lack of blood-flow bellow the cuffs.

The material is so comfy and light , perfect for this weird weather .


Gold leaf farm – a auzit cineva de aceasta? Google ne informa ca se afla o fundatie un Carolina de nord cu acest nume, dar cam atat. Pe eticheta din interior scrie The limited,presupun ca au fabricat niste tricouri polo pentru aceasta fundatie.

Acest tricou de barbati l-am gasit in stare exceptionala , nu cred ca a fost purtat prea mult, motivul ? : manecile sunt stramte si rigide iar daca esti un tip musculos , care se incardeaza in marimea M, s-ar putea sa iti amorteasca bratele de la obstructionarea circulatiei sangelui…hmm..

In fine, materialul este foarte confortabil si usor, perfect pentru vremea ciudata din aceasta perioada.

First , measurments were made and then the collar and a small part of the shoulders were cut  off.  SAM_0904 SAM_0905

I wanted to leave the two buttons ,- this is what I originally did – but then someone suggested it looked  better without one button. He was right, so I cut the other button off and re-hemmed the neckline a bit higher this time.


Mi-au placut cei doi nasturi si am vrut sa ii pastrez – asta am si facut initial – dar cineva a sugerat ca ar arata mai bine doar cu un nasture. A avut dreptate, asa ca l-am taiat pe celalalt si am revacut tivul.

I made a snake tongue from the cuffs and stitched a small hem.This is how it looks .


Din mansete am facut limba de sarpe (le-am despicat) si le-am cusut un tiv minuscul. Asa arata:


The result.

A dear person of mine saw me interested in this new hobby(if the pc is on, ‘Refashions’ in all tabs). He  had  stumbled in a flea mart on something he thought was a helpful for me. I received a gift, but first, let me introduce you to my iron  , it’s a severin shorty . The gift is the ironing board, which is also tiny, but just enough for my iron.

*I was informed that the ironing board is actually a full sized sleeve-ironing board . (to my defense, I’ve never seen one until I got one    🙂  )


O persoana draga mie m-a vazut foarte interesata de acest nou hobby (daca e deschis calculatorul, ‘refashions’ scrie pe toate tab-urile). Daduse peste un obiect care i s-a parut ca m-ar ajuta. Am primit cadou, dar intai vreau sa va arat fierul de calcat, este  firma Severin shorty . Cadoul este masa de calcat, care deasemenea este minuscula , dar potrivita pentru shorty.

* Am fost informata ca masa de calcat este defapt o masa de dimensiuni normale, destinata calcatului manecilor . (in apararea mea, nu am vazut una pana cand am primit-o pe aceasta   🙂  )
