The Refashioners 2017 – Andrew

And….drum roll…today we have EXECUTIVE DUNGAREES for you courtesy of the very clever Andrew!  I should point out that this is not Andrew. This is Joe. Hi Joe!!The Refashioners 2017 - Andrew


THIS is Andrew (on the right) who decided that while he was adamant he wanted to make executive dungarees, he didn’t think he could rock the look himself (I beg to differ) and so instead Joe is the lucky recipient of Andrew’s skill and creativity…The Refashioners 2017 - Andrew


I think Joe has done a sterling job in showing these off. Good job chap 😉The Refashioners 2017 - AndrewThe Refashioners 2017 - Andrew


I really like the idea of turning a formal garment into something utilitarian. And there are some great details in this make. A couple of my favourites are the welt pocket on the front bib and the side button plackets…The Refashioners 2017 - AndrewThe Refashioners 2017 - Andrew

    Why do boys want to wear onesies as an expression of antidisestablishmentarianism?

    Do boys, aka men, have to go back to toddler-hood to escape the all encompassing biscuit cutter of being a man?
