It’s…just alright. Call us crazy, but the judges went on and on about how well-fitted this was and it doesn’t really look it to us. The shirt is weirdly tight in strange areas and the pants are weirdly loose in some.
See? It’s not us, is it? Doesn’t that outfit give a lithe young studmodel a weird blocky shape? What’s going on around his zipper there?
It looks like the waist is too loose or something and he pinned the pants on the model to keep them up. Plus, that shirt gives him no shape at all, which is odd because you’d think Jack of all people, if he’s capable of making menswear, would make it a little form-fitting.
Another thing that bugs us is the lack of a belt. If you only made two pieces when everyone around you was making three, at the very least put some belt loops on that thing and give him a belt to finish the look. As it is, he looks like he’s making a 7 a.m. shamewalk.
The fabrics are nice enough and we do like the bias cut trim on the shirt, which was well done. Design-wise, it’s perfectly fine, if a bit on the bland side. We think there were more deserving winners, though.
As for the pretend “controversy” with the pattern-making…*shrug*. It never reached the level of stashing contraband books under your bed and besides, Jack did ask Tim ahead of time. Sure, female contestants could all come in every day wearing cocktail dresses and evening gowns and proceed to rip them apart to make patterns but you know they won’t.
And yeah, he passed the pattern around to other designers but all that says is that Jack is a gracious contestant who looks out for others. The only person who really seemed to have a problem with it was Rami and he’s a prissy, self-loving bitch.
