I'm not a designer, more of an adjuster (because I think most designs for males are terrible and need some adjustment).
I'm not tearing through it very fast because I keep skipping around (making bust darts loses my interest

Just like artists start by copying the greats I do think you need to have some finished projects under your belt so you know how things are done.
