m.turn :mechanismthe m.turn (magnetic screw) consists of two parts. the m.turn:home and m.turn:a , where here, m.turn:a screws into m.turn:home .the space in between the two, which is established by a plinth that extrudes out of m.turn:a, creates the exact amount of space needed for the grommets (which are attached to the fabric) to be able to sit on top of each other (5mm).to add overall stability, the tip of m.turn:a’s plinth is threaded. this makes undoing the screw only possible by twisting it (a pull mechanism would not be preferred because the clothing could undo itself when in motion). the thread count is adjusted so that the screw mechanism has to be turned exactly 1.5 rounds. this small amount of turns allows for quick installment but is still enough to secure the closure.inside of the m.turn:home sits a magnet , that helps screw the thread into place. an earth magnet was used for this as they are particularly strong and can only be undone by either a twisting or sliding motion. to support the magnetic function of the m.turn, the material of the closure is polished nickel steel.the base of each m.turn is engraved with a keith-patrick monogram logo . this logo can be seen on the surface of the garments as this is the only visible part of the m.turn. the thickness of each m.turn is exactly 3mm thin - enough to support the structure of the closure, but not large enough to be noticeable on the skin. the edges of the base are rounded for additional comfort. 8 7 3 2 4 5 1 6
