Joseph says that he thinks it's a good idea to use polka dots on the uniforms for the guys. Richard warns him away from that idea, which is probably a good think. Joseph is super odd and reminds me of a rangy art Brooklyn version of Stanford from Sex and the City. I feel this so strongly that I wonder if maybe I have already written that more than once. If so, it's because I really mean it. He interviews that he wished he could do something unconventional. He says that he has a business where he takes old sweaters and spray paints cats onto them. They are very popular. He has sold about a thousand at $78 a pop. Project Runway does us the courtesy of showing us that the total of that would be $78,000. And they show their work. I'm not sure if that's supposed to be a dig on Sanford or not, like, "Wow, you sold a THOUSAND? That's only $78,000. Loser." Joseph lets himself be toned down by Richard though.
Michelle remarks that Team Keeping It Real seems really cohesive as a team. They all have distinct points of view and are able to work together. She feels like their team is two or three steps behind. Cindy is getting more and more annoyed with Benjamin. She says that he is micromanaging her and she doesn't like it. She says to him that shopping with him was difficult because they have different aesthetics.
Back at the workroom, the groups continue to caucus. Richard tells us that he is not really a menswear designer, but he is going to go for it. In general, their team is pretty positive. Kate is excited to be working with Patricia, but Patricia is feeling she is hiding her design light under a bushel by having to make a simple black legging.
