…It’s Website Wednesday: Reknit?

Reknit

Reknit is a project by Haik Avanian where very month during 2010, you can send his mom an old sweater, and she’ll turn it into a new article of clothing.

This month, she’s knitting any old sweater into a new, hand-made, one of a kind scarf.

Now that’s a sustainable movement I can get behind!

…Trunk Club is your personal fashion assistant?

 Trunk Club

Trunk Club wants to revolutionize the way that men shop for clothes by becoming the Netflix/Zappos of clothing.

The main benefit of Trunk Club is a personal clothing expert that you can meet with via webcam who will evaluate your style and recommend, find and deliver clothing and accessories that match.

Then, once the clothes arrive, you can try them on and let your personal clothing expert evaluate the fit and style before allowing you to select what you want and ship the rest back for free.

Surprisingly, there are no membership fees or consultation costs, and you just pay the normal retail price for all pieces that you decide to keep. There’s no shipping, no obligation, and no need to ever wade through the mall again.

Still skeptical? Gear Patrol recently gave the service a trial run, and was impressed with the ease of use and the range of choices that were presented. You can read the full review here.

…Designgive has a cause for design?

Designgive - Cause For Design

Designgive’s Cause For Design is a site for socially conscious clothing where designers can submit designs, and a portion of the proceeds form each item sold are donated to a charity of the buyer’s choosing.

Their current offering is a beautiful tee called “Industrial Re-pollution” by Maciej Rakowski, and only 200 of them will be printed and are being sold on a pre-order basis.

Already their product line is impressive, and their charities are best of breed, so it’s a win-win all around.

…Narwhal recycles neckties?

Narwhal

Narwhal Co. takes gently used, vintage neckties, and recycles them into handmade, one of a kind accessories, including wallets, iPod covers, iPhone covers, wrist wear, clothing, and even custom orders if you know exactly what you want.

Since each item is unique, you’re guaranteed not to see another just like it. Plus, since they’re made with recycled materials, you can feel good about your purchase’s effect on the planet.

Sounds good to me!

…Kyla Ebbert isn’t embarrassed?

When I first heard about Kyla Ebbert, the woman who was kicked off of a Southwest flight for wearing clothing that was “too revealing”, I wanted to run a story about the fact that during her interview on The Today Show, you can clearly see quite a bit of Kyla when she shows off her outfit and then goes to sit down, indicating that Southwest might not have been too far off base with their request:

However, I decided not to cover the story because I figured that maybe it was just a bad camera angle; and besides, she did say “I was humiliated. I was embarrassed. I felt like everybody was staring at me”.

I can understand that. No one wants to be the focus of attention; Right?

Apparently Kyla and I have two different definitions of being the focus of attention, because her ‘embarrassment’ has landed her in the latest issue of Playboy, showing off a little more than just her skirt:

In the article, she even goes so far as to say “I’ve wanted to do it since I turned 18.”

Wouldn’t that be at least a few years before her Southwest flight?

Thankfully, there’s at least one airline that is willing to fly Kyla to and from her photo shoots:
