Probably patted down before the shot, similar to what often happens in WAYWRN.

I would think Matt did the opposite.

You deduce blow dryer and stylist's brush?

Hairspray?

Just saw this. It is good that has someone to play with now. Single children can sometimes be selfish, selfish creatures. edit:

Curling iron and plenty of extreme lash extender?

On the AS that Jeffrey gutted, the raw edge did not seem to be covered, as he made an especial point of the hairs jutting out:


from Jeffrey's blog

Would there be a reason NOT to cover the edge, eg adding bulk resulting in a visible bump (in case of the chest) or minor discomfort in the case of high armholes?

Jeffery would have to answer himself but I think the fabric covering the haircloth has been removed to expose the shape of the haircloth. The cloth would extend past the edge of the haircloth to the armhole.

There was flannel covering it, but the main culprit is the quality of haircloth used, which was bad.

The hairs in good haircloth will have a crimp to them, which helps lock them into the weave. They will not move, and a bit of flannel or silesia is enough to cover the ends. These are hair fibers removed from good haircloth



These are fibers removed from the A&S chest piece



Because they are smooth, they slide through the warp and poke through. No amount of flannel will prevent them sticking out over time.

Tell us something we don't know.

What have we become? Have we sucked all the joy out of clothing, and now we cannibalize each other for sport, tearing apart each other's garments literally or figuratively? Is there nothing more to our lives than the obtaining and collecting of clothes and shoes for moments that will never come?

Je vis un moment de crise existentielle et je sais que tu, avant tout le monde, sauras sympatiser.

I actually had an old Flusser coat that had a straight fiber haircloth, and they did poke through, and it did drive me nuts.

I'm borderline suicidal...
