Are there any tutorials out there for mens clothing that aren't dress stuff, pajamas, boxers, or accessories? I'm looking for things like cool shirts, or pants. Am I just doomed to buy the 3 patterns available for men and customize them myself?

there are tutorials for mens jackets and pants, though alot are dress pants/shirts its not too hard to switch the look with just the fabrics you use (alot of their pants are very much the same so using denim instead of dress pants materials would change the look easily) there are patterns for t-shirts and hoodies/sweat shirts but there really isnt too much else that i could find. Your best bet would be to make the patterns yourself, maybe off of existing mens clothing...buy a few things at a thrift store to tear apart to make your basic pattern and medify however you wanted. I made a guys sweater using another one to create my pattern and it worked out really well. All the patterns ive been able to find on the net are for sale so maybe you could look at the pattern section in your fabric/craft store and luck out.

if you buy stuff online http://www.momspatterns.com/ has a bunch of patterns from the 40's-90's. if you scroll down you'll see a "just for men" box with options for pants, jackets, shirts etc.

If you want anything even remotely interesting, you have to draft it yourself, alter existing patterns and experiment with embellishment. But have no fear, I can think of two men off the top of my head who are innovative, interesting, and mega-talented, and have kindly shared their work on BurdaStyle for all and sundry to drool over!

Two of my fave projects from dpiddy are "MADE: Bleach" and "Out of my pleating mind."

Urbandon is a recycled menswear and accessories superstar! It's hard to choose only two projects of his on BS, so I'll give you three: "Game of Thrones Coat," "Da Vinci Coat," and "The Thin Green Line."
