FWIW, Pat is someone who likes to mess with so-called convention, push the envelope a little and see what happens.
When he wants to, he can go ultra-CBD sharp. Occasionally however, he enjoys putting something out there that makes people go: What the heck??!!
It's just who he is.
Personally, having dealt with him on multiple occasions, I think he's a really nice guy with passion for his craft and an excellent sense of humour.
Good on him. Great to see people with this attitude. The only issue I have is that if he is pushing the boat out, the clothes should at least look like they fit. To me he occasionally (stress occasionally) undermines his effort to catch the eye by wearing something that actually looks poorly tailored.
