In a tongue-in-cheek effort to curb the effects of bad fashion throughout the Puget Sound region, Northwest Embroidery will be collecting ugly and old jackets throughout the months of October and November at his Milton, WA headquarters.

This is an attempt to keep bad fashion off the streets, prevent juveniles from becoming influenced into wearing ugly jackets themselves, and encourage wearing fashionable alternatives, such as new custom embroidered pieces from Nike Golf and OGIO

In a tongue-in-cheek effort to curb the effects of bad fashion throughout the Puget Sound region, Northwest Embroidery will be collecting ugly and old jackets throughout the months of October and November at his Milton, WA headquarters, as part of its “Ugly Jacket Buyback” program. This is an attempt to keep bad fashion off the streets, prevent juveniles from becoming influenced into wearing ugly jackets themselves, and encourage wearing fashionable alternatives, such as new custom embroidered pieces from the Nike Golf and OGIO outerwear lines available through Northwest Embroidery. Jackets will then be donated to the Salvation Army.

Persons will deposit their jacket into one of three bins, classified as “Sorta Ugly,” “Pretty Darn Ugly,” and “OMG Ugly.” Jackets filling the former two will be then donated to local charities, while those determined to be “OMG Ugly” will be safely contained and eliminated, to prevent further any fashion hazards. If there any confusion as to which level of ugliness a jacket falls under, staff will be on hand to offer critique of all confiscated items. Some factors include the usage of pleather, fringe, and any decoration falling under the blanket term “bedazzled”. All jackets with major discoloration achieved through ketchup, mustard, any other condiment, or through the lack of antiperspirant use will immediately be sorted into “OMG Ugly.”

Jackets will be exchanged for $5.00 cash, with a limit of one exchange per person. Jackets will be accepted in person Monday – Friday 9 am to 4 pm at Northwest Embroidery’s headquarters, located at 2025 Freeman R East Milton, WA 98354.
