Starting April 13, you can bring in T-shirts to all Barneys locations which will be “re-fashioned” into limited edition T-shirts sold exclusively at Barneys over the 2008 holidays.
The program is a partnership between Sundance Channel’s “The Green,” Barneys New York and Loomstate (they make eco-friendly jeans). Barneys will collect the T-shirts, and Loomstate will re-style, re-dye and re-print to create new shirts. Participating consumers will receive a 20 percent discount on both men’s and women’s Loomstate merchandise. nice deal!
There has been no announcement in regards to restrictions on types of T-shirts accepted or required quality of the shirts.
