• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I would like to know too.
I have used trunk tailors.
they did a 3 piece for my wedding last year as well as a suit for my brother as best man.
have since received a pair of trousers and bought a RTW luca avitabile polo from them.

happy to field any questions.

Is north a reasonable area for renting, access and other trade offs (Brunswick, Coburg, Heidelberg)? I know everyone loves east but looking for a 3 bed, 2 living spaces, non microscopic garage etc (budget $700ish?) and probably gives us more flexibility for her moving forward if school contract doesn't work out. That and airport run is probably easier as well (frequent Sydney visits likely).
north is great but typically they are small blocks and small houses. you can probably find a newish townhouse with what youve asked for in budget, if that living appeals to you. 700 dollars otherwise gets you a pretty tired freestanding house.
make sure you know the difference between heidelberg and heidelberg heights/west.
proximity to citylink is great for airport access, so brunswick/coburg are better than heidelberg.
if you need to commute to the cbd, note that the upfield train line will be closed for several months next year as part of a level crossing removal program. you have trams but it will be bad bad news.

I was thinking of using them but because I live in Sydney I probably would have to wait for their trunk shows. Are they true bespoke with basted fittings?

Just saw Charles Nahkle the other day... He’s planning to relocate near his home in Castle Hill by year end. Still making beautiful shirts though. Fabrics mainly Alumo, Monti, and Sic Tess.
What kind of collar construction does he do? I’m guessing on the firmer side? I am I’m desperate need of a new shirt maker...
