    Your suit is awesome!!! Great that you took the time to make all those pleats. I would be bored with it very soon and won’t finish. Well… I think I wouldn’t even start! Keep up this great work!

    You’re so obsessed with pleats, aren’t you? How much fabric did you use for the suit? It’s amazing, well done dude!

      All and all I think I used like 10 yrds of fabric haha for a suit that would normally take 6

      You have no idea how happy I am that you said sculptural!! thats what I wanted… I was going for a very industrial modern art feel

    S.I.C.K. i’m in awe. jaw has dropped to the floor.

    i think i like it on you better than your other model. maybe because the pics of your are more formal and his is a runway grab, but clearly you make your clothes to fit YOU perfectly and i love that!!
