A problem is solved

Added Feb 5, 2012

Rotterdam, Neth...






milions of men struggle every day with the same problem: how to provide to dip your tie into coffie, tea, soup or anything else. Here is the solution! The collar wears very comfortable and the tie is fixed on the arm. I think I deserve the inovation award 2012 :-)
It’s just a fun project.

      Das war sicher kein Aprilschertz, aber das Hemd zaubert den meisten Menschen ein Lächeln auf das Gesicht…. .

      thank you emperorny, I tried to get access to fashion acadamy with this shirt but I failed. Not because of the shirt, but they wanted me fulltime and I was only interested in a partime course. So my carrier have to wait :-)

      thank you for your ’ fabulous’ :-) and sorry for the late reply. I can’t recommend a pattern for a men shirt, because I make my own patterns. If you go for a burda pattern recognize that mostly the shoulders are too big.

      Just wanted to let you know, that I’ve tried to make a pattern for a fitted mens shirt from one of my fiance’s best shirts. So far so good. I’m down to having to copy the sleeves and I dread it! But hopefully I’ll succeed and be able to make a shirt inspired by your great design (IMHO) in time for Christmas. :-)

    to think it, take pains to make it and to actually have the b*lls to put it up here…. everything is highly commendable. hats off to you martin! this is a serious problem though(tie dipping in tea,coffee,etc) All of you guys shud have a campaign or walk or something like “tie on shoulder walk”. If people follow it, then millions of men will thank you ;-)

      really, this is not a joke, actual it is a serious design! On the German site everyone sees it as a kind of carneval costum :-(

      I don’t know if it is possible to patent it. As it is, it would cost a lot of money, I think. If I will see Prada or Gucci next year with such a shirt I will be angry :-)
