The model isn't so bad, though it might take me several weeks to erase the memory of the ensemble from my mind... But think of the bright side - if you were starving in the wilderness, all you'd have to do is swim with that thing and you might snag half the fish in the lake.

Have to admit, that's bloody ugly, by any standards. On the plus side, you could probably use it to catch fish in a survival situation.

I'm just curious as to how the conductors at the fashion show would drape such a monstrosity on such beauty as that.

My compliments to the hatter.

the scary thing is that you know Westwood didn't do just one of these....there would be variations of colours and forms. I've been trying to find what year she showed this...

It is hairpin crochet - at its ugliest. And the hat isn't so hot either. Another travesty inspired by the myth of the West as put forth in romances and bad films. You know: If it is about cowboys, it has to be sexy. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

He could be wearing a loud print flowered shirt under that thing. Hey, they didn't even wear anything like that in Brokeback mountain. :-)

I'd be afraid to wear it, afraid it would catch on everything. It is ugly but might improve if he wore it with no shirt under it. Yes, do like the hat.

it may be a combination of crochet and knit, but nothing that the fashion industry has to worry about. Not everyone can design for men

Of COURSE you're not going

Of COURSE you're not going to be knitting it any time soon. That's because it's crocheted. :) It looks like it's a meld of hairpin lace and broomstick lace. Can any experienced crocheters confirm or refute?

In any case it's gross. Uglier than some of the stuff from the 70s.
