The die-line was tricky as well, and still needs to be improved in places.
Also a couple turns as Napoleon (and Kubrick’s unmade Napoleon biopic), and Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, and Sir William Gull in From Hell, etc, etc.

Put my design up on TeePublic. It comes in two slightly different versions, one for royal blue and one for navy blue. Final garment color is up to you.
I’m more partial to the royal blue version.
