I’m different, yeah, I’m different

“I’m different”, yea we know 2 chainz, everyone is.  Honestly, though it only takes a little effort to stand out.  With the internet and availability to customize anything (at a price) why wouldn’t you strive to find your lane and be yourself?  Further than that, with social media you can access so many different communities to play your part in that there has got to be something you can bring to a valuable, accessible table.

I’ve met an impressive young man doing just that and even better, girls, you will love what he has to offer.  Aside from being super dope, Tomas’ one-of-a-kind, cutoff, custom designed and hand made shorts are a WAY better price than some of our favorite brands which is how he landed himself and his shorts on The Discount Diary.

Not only does Tomas pick the vintage jeans, he cuts them into shorts, partially distresses them, dyes them and he does all the stud work by hand!  And his designs are awesome!  I can’t wait to meet up with him after my upcoming weekend away and get pair or two.

So do you all remember that time I paid FULL price for my favorite pair of cutoff distressed denim shorts from UO and then got the identical pair on clearance for $7?  Well, here – refresh your memory.  I thought I did well because I paid $44 for the first pair.  My reasoning was that the coolest pairs on NastyGal.com start at $78.  At the time $44 seemed like a steal.  Well, Tomas’ VNTG Denim range from about $45-55 for his inventory, available at brand new website www.VNTGDemin.com, and a little more, dependent on the work and materials for a special request custom pair.

For those of you in Miami, you should definitely check Tomas and his VNTG Denim out at the RAW:natural born artists event this Thursday, February 28.  According to RAW’s website, they are an “independent artists association that hand-selects and spotlights independent creatives in visual art, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup artistry, photography, models and performing art.”  Their events feature  “a film screening, musical performance, fashion show, art gallery, performance art and a featured hairstylist and makeup artist” all locally living and working in Miami.  It’s only $20 and drinks and food will be available for purchase.  I would definitely check this out if I were in town.  Who is going to go and give me the scoop?

You can also find Tomas on Instagram at VNTGDenim and at Facebook.com/vntgdenimshorts.  Check him out!
