British milliner, Stephen Jones.

On New Year’s Eve 1980,
Jones had his head shaved
by drunk friends,
leading him to discover
that without hair,
his head was a perfect
woman’s stock size.

Thus, he became
his own fit model,
developing all his ideas
and designs
upon one singular
favored head —
his own.

  2. …from one bald headed man to another, that really is “true genius.” One fascinating human interest story.

  3. What an inspiring tale! My shaved head makes me a perfect model for Uncle Fester.
