Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Is that a pocket on the bustline or is their a fit problem  at the bustline!

It took some back and forth before deciding to post this... but it was such an excellent example of why a line may not be picked up!

There is also  aquestion on the sleeve as well as the hemline.. is that intentional or is it a flaw.

 

Few designers Know what they are looking  to correct or spot  during  Fit sessions! Which translates to not knowing what to  spont in their lookbook images! 

.

SEEING a Look Book from a Buyers or critics eye...

It is sad because the images are interesting and the lines well thought out! So what's the problem...

Trained eyes can easily  pick up  poor construction and problems in fit!  As a buyer, I'd also test these on my own fit model these images speak of selling solely  to an androgynous client!  

Even if the sale sample fits,  I would pay  particular attention to the drape, especially in this white number!  

In the end you are Not selling 'Image" but apparel.

SIDE THONG 

Original and ultra sexy thong that surrounds one side of the waist. Comfort and lateral support is provided by the fabric high elastane content

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

#sidethong #Stylelust #fashion #Menswear,  Men are demanding more options. But do those options need to  "make sense"... The only  use I can thing of for these is costume designs as in "Dance" performance or Masquerade... but they have been seen on the  beaches  of Europe.
