Old pair of jeans (or just the top waistband with zipper part)
Plain crew neck sweatshirt
Seam Ripper
Sewing Machine

Step 1: Cut the Jean Waist and the Sweatshirt Collar

Take your seam ripper and start ripping off the bottom part of the belt loops.

Cut around the waistband and down around the zipper, making sure to leave enough room to sew. If the jeans have a logo on the back, rip that off with a seam ripper.

Take out your sweatshirt and carefully cut the collar off right below the seam.
<p>I LOVE this concept, but the execution wasn't the best. I would suggest at least sewing the ends on the inside so that they're not visible and fraying. It looks kind of sloppy this way. </p><p>That being said, I still love the concept and think that it's a super cool and creative design. I am totally doing this later.</p>
i did something not quite like this but i made a polo like shirt using a long sleeve button down and a black t-shurt and put the color on the t-shirt
well i happen to love this idea!!! i hate t-shirt or sweatshirt collars that are high on my neck. i feel like they're choking me. i'm definitely going to try this. heck, you can ever use t-shirts and 'softer' dress pant waistbands. thanks bud!
look's odd...
i agree... however i think if the cuts were more clean it could potentially look pretty good...
That's weird looking. I loved his pokemon hoodie though.
nice. i might do this. dont think so tho. idk. depends on the next time some jeans rip
