Crochet may seem antiquated to some, but just try telling Schuyler Ellers that. His Etsy site, Lord von Schmitt, sells brightly colored vintage-style shorts, slacks, and capris made from repurposed materials. When asked if the cool patterns were only for women, he insisted that they worked just as well for dudes.

“Afghan blankets are original pieces of folk art, hand created by craftsmen across America since the 1960s and even earlier,” writes Ellers, tracing the history of the textiles. “Using only a pair of scissors and a sewing machine, I give old crochets new life as sculptural garments!”
