Project Runway: Menswear

Given the level of tailoring needed to make men's clothes, it comes as no surprise that the designs this week fell short. And while Jack may have won the challenge, with the ensemble pictured below, I was left wanting more. While I like the overall look, a tie and/or vest would have really pulled this look together. And I'm bothered by the pocket on the shirt. It looks like a square piece of fabric was sown on in the last minute. But given the time constraints of the challenge, not bad . . . just not the best.
For me this week's winner should have been Kevin. I love his use of dual purple tones. This look would be complete if they would have just tucked in the damn shirt. Other than that, this look is sharp!
Kit's outfit is also worth mentioning. I like how it straddles the line between dressy and casual with the fleece jacket. An easy look that I am sure a lot of men appreciate.

I figure its about time I make a prediction for this season's winner. So far I think Victorya has been the most consistent at creating wearable and classic clothing. (I'm going to try and swing by Steve and Barry's today to see if I can pick up her winning dress from last week.) Although I think anything can happen in this competition, the other designers better keep their eye on her!

I fully agree with everything you said - best ones, who should have won, who will probably win at the end and that darn pocket - really to have a point at the bottom of the pocket would not have taken much more time!
