Wow, the producers certainly like to throw the designers of Season 4 a curve ball, don't they? I think it's pretty well-known that womens wear designers aren't always the best menswear designers, and vice-versa, but kudos to them for giving it their all! When watching this episode with my roommate, she said to me "Wouldn't it be easier to do men's clothing anyway, it's all boxy shapes?" Well, that AND a whole lot of geometry, details, fit, and technique. For centuries men's clothing has gone relatively unchanged, and because of that, delineating too far from the standard is like waving a big ole awkward red flag.
