Wear a conventional garment made for everyone or wear a custom garment: which one would you choose?
If you ask us, we will choose a custom garment, without hesitation. The magic that separates a custom garment from a conventional garment, or a commercial garment that will be mass-produced and sold, is the originality of a custom piece made just for you.
Custom clothing allows us to represent our true personality and colors. At La Pimbêche, you have the chance to wear a custom-made creation made just for you! Whether it's a custom denim jacket, a custom patch, a custom pin, contact La Pimbêche and she will make it for you. It is even possible to have a personalized illustration created for your company needs!
If you are still not convinced that custom-made products are a perfect idea to stand out, here are some good reasons to choose custom-made clothing!
3 reasons to choose custom clothing
It is hard to pick just one reason to consider custom apparel. However, we believe that wearing them provides important personal benefits and contributes to our emotional well-being.
A unique style
We live in the 21st century, a time of admirable inclusivity and it shows in fashion.
Fashion is an aspect of our society that sets trends, in terms of the types of clothing and designs we should consider wearing. But it will not always be to everyone's taste. Everyone has their own style of clothing and this is an idea that we should always keep in mind.
Customized clothing accurately showcases your style, with artworks that you can choose yourself, artworks that truly represents you.
Show & wear what matters to you
It is on occasions like this that we can make our opinion count.
When it comes to customizing your clothes, this is the time to make your point. Speak up and express yourself through personalized clothing. For example, at La Pimbêche, when you choose a product or a personalized garment, the use of very strong images and slogans is common.
You support emerging or local designers
The nice thing about customized clothes is that it's a great way to support emerging or local artists.
It is an initiative that's been around for a while now and continues to prove itself. It's very important to support our local talent.
Clothing with messages supports social or political causes
It is not at all new to see personalized clothing in a demonstration, for a particular cause, or a social movement to ban a practice that is harmful to society and its surroundings (animal protection, businesses, school, or university movements, etc.).
Clothing with personalized messages has become viral to such an extent that it goes beyond a social or political purpose and can be found in a cultural and playful affinity, for those who wear it. Their messages are varied, embodying concrete ideas and massively controversial thoughts, with the intention of bringing a specific topic to the debate.
How to take care of your custom clothing
You may not know it yet, but custom clothing is not quite the same as conventional clothing when it comes to the washing process. For example, at La Pimbêche, custom-made clothes require delicate care, they are a piece of art! To keep your clothes in good condition, it will be convenient to follow these guidelines to keep them in perfect condition as long as possible.
Washing rules for garments that have undergone a personalization process (screen-printing, painting on fabric, etc.):
#1 Wash on gentle cycle in cold water
If you choose to machine wash your hand-painted work on denim, for example, don't forget to wash it on a gentle cycle and especially in cold water.
#2 Avoid frequent washing
When it comes to custom denim jackets, for instance, there is no need to wash them after every use. Just once per season is enough and it will keep your garment looking good for longer.
#3 Air drying of garments
It is recommended that you do not use the dryer to dry your custom products. Drying in the dryer will damage your garment, plus it may shrink your t-shirts or your hoodies.
