Description

Shirt made from old Chinese packing cloth I found in the street. Patch-worked them all together. Mixed tailoring and raw edges together. Easy-peasy.

    Wow! I love the tailored “tattered” look. That fabric is awesome. I really want one. You are an inspiration. What a fresh look in men’s wear. Keep it up.

      Thanks so much Ralf! So nice that I have nailed ‘a look’ – sigh! Ma be seeing you next year- Frankfurt confirmed on Qantas – who knows from there? Considering Berlin is better than New York or Paris we may have to visit!
