Ideas for men's sewing patterns

Back in January I really got into men's fashion week. I decided to play about with some basic clothes designs for men that I would like to see pattern company's come up with as there are very few menswear patterns are out there to choose from. This is also the first time I've sketched using a man's figure.....

What I came up with is... (from right to left) 1. A Bomber jacket and straight leg jeans. 2. A Parker with straight leg cord trousers 3. swimming shorts 4. crew neck top and jean shorts 5. classic hoodie with cargo trousers.

Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
