THUG LIFE BY URBANDON MENSWEAR

'Thug Life' is second in my series ' Deconstructed/Reconstructed' where I take apart old pieces and reconstruct and re-energize them.

The Thug Life suit is made from two old wool jackets and a pair of wool pants. The idea was 'English gent turned thug.' Considering the refined gent kills animals for sport, it is not a great leap to see him bash the lower classes for pleasure. 

He may wear Harris Tweed but he is a scumbag at heart.

The process involves cutting of sleeves and reattaching others, cutting revers down, horizontal pleats, exposing seams and generally manipulating and destroying as much of the original pieces as possible.
