This commission included making the shirt and altering the trousers. The shirt was a bit of a challenge because there aren’t a lot of clear reference photos, but I believe I have captured every detail faithfully. The “bib” is an unusual detail and a bit difficult to figure out, especially in regards to integrating it into the collar. The fabric was perfect, the right colour and weight, it was a soft cotton linen that wasn’t difficult to work with. Often linen is “shifty”. The trousers needed loop holes and pockets and a slight adjustment to the jodhpur flaps.

I was very aware that these items needed to withstand a bit of stress.

Roby reaches over and changes the slide, to the one of the CRUDELY
DRAWN TRIANGLE ON THE ALIEN CONTROL PANEL.
What would you say that was supposed
Well... it's obviously intentional...
some kind of attempt at
communication... maybe it's a symbol
that means something to them...
But why draw it on the wall?
Roby switches off the projector, sits up, and rubs his face wearily.
He rises and goes to the coffee machine.
