    whats "the freman robe"? Did you make it or something? if so chuck a fitpix and tell us how! It kinda looks like very traditionally ancient; Biblical or something. If i figure out how to make it I might post it with a traditional pakistani dress or something like that if i can find one.

    fremen It's similar in idea to the OV jacket, actually. Not as shaped, more like a legit robe - I'm contemplating putting sleeves of some light-colored leather on it, or making it sleeveless (I ran out of linen, so I basically have 4/5th sleeves right now - and poorly made ones, at that - so I'm thinking that those will have to be changed). It has a giant, 2-part hood (that's the part lined in muslin), and no waist suppression. The idea was that it would hang of the shoulders, and will be attached in the front with a large stone toggle. It's more like a cape with sleeves than a jacket; fairly costumey. I'm leaning towards leather sleeves on everything though. Speaking of which, I lost all my links to leather suppliers - there were a few on here that the "leather artisan" thread guys were using for mocs, etc. Does anyone have those on hand?

    ^Yeah, those are the ones I do have. Thanks, though.

    I'll try to do some work on it in the next week or so, at which point I'll take some pictures. It's still fairly misshapen, however. I didn't follow a pattern, just draped it really. It was a first try; I wouldn't suggest doing what I did.

    Nah don't, i think it'll crack too much and maybe like crumble and stuff but itll look like you actually tried to dip it in paint and not like the natural "accidentally" spilling paint on it. Like MMM

    in spirit of the hybrid, modern-eclectic, interior design-inspired fashions going on, I'm playing with a nylon blazer popularized by Prada in the 90s and a classic jean jacket. Also something interior design inspired.
