THE SENTIMENTAL SERVICE

WEAR YOUR MEMORIES ON YOUR SLEEVE

HOW DOES IT WORK?

STEP 1

buy one of the two packages

STEP 2

choose clothes you want us to remake

we recommend following one of our three philosophies

wear your memories on your sleeve

Embrace your loved one’s memory day by day wearing a jacket made from their garments. Pick 3 to 5 items of clothing from your loved one's wardrobe, pieces that remind you of them. Anything but underwear works well, you can also decide to use blankets or curtains.

If you are unsure about your choice, don't hesitate to email us and we will consult you on your choices.

pick 3 - 5 items 

take care of business by wearing it casual

Transform your old suits and shirts and turn them into your own personalised bomber jacket. Ideal for a business occasion with a casual flair.  Choose 2 to 4 suit jackets and 1 old shirt from your wardrobe.  

If you are unsure about your choice, don't hesitate to email us and we will consult you on your choice.

pick 2 - 4 items 

any clothes you love but don't wear

Like our broken jeans from teenage years, souvenirs from traveling, your wedding dress, only you know what makes it worth it. Pick 3 to 5 items of clothing from your wardrobe, anything but underwear works well, you can also decide to use blankets or curtains.
