I can't believe the original price for that holey top is 945 euro, it's actually disgusting.
I got one in a very similar style from H&M last summer but it's white. I'm not sure whether to dye it khaki or keep it white and do the whole military look a bit differently.

I have a holey top from Urban Outfitters similar in length and style to the one in the picture below, which I am going to attach and drape some chains on to create a look similar to that of the top in the picture.

Santiagoartemis, I'm liking what you're going for but I think you should make the translation of the shoulder pad to the arm more subtle, you know what I mean? I think it looks good but because of the excessive pad, it gives you a weird lump.

I'm jealous of your skills Santiagoartemis. It looks very good. Though I agree with KissenKatja about the shoulder to arm part.
