    That first picture belongs in the "creepy sartorial images" thread... it is deeply disturbing in ways I cannot explain.

    For the well-to-do psychiatric patient . . . it's a bespoke straight-jacket. The sleeves cross in front and are tied in back.

    This was actually up in B&S for a while. There are actually way weirder Thom Browne items, if you check his fashion shows.

    Runway piece. The sleeves were shown tied behind the back, sort of like a straight jacket.

    This is the kind of 'art' that is only horrible and depressing in a museum, but horrible, depressing, and funny when worn on a living human.
