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

For pre-1970s watches, he’s okay.Is Ekselman still the go-to in Melbourne for watch repairs? The Google reviews scare me.
Cordings might have what you're after as well: https://www.cordings.co.uk/menswear/trousers/corduroyNow that summer that was not a summer is heading for extinction. I’ve been looking at corduroy trousers. Ha forget Lands End which i’ve bought in the past or LLBean. And by cor-du-roy I’m not interested in corduroy spandex. Which leaves only the English option any suggestions.
And classic quality cotton Brando style white t shirts. Nothing I have seen locally looks good.
Sunspel might be worth a try.On a totally unrelated note, does anyone have a good source for shirting fabric boxer shorts? I used to buy Herringbone and then MJ Bale: the former is gone and the latter has stopped making them. Pink has some but they’ve got weird padded waistbands and are also like $70...
Best quality tshirts I’ve found are Alex Mill. Stocked at Modern Classic Shop in Fitzroy. Not cheap.And classic quality cotton Brando style white t shirts. Nothing I have seen locally looks good.
The Alex Mill ones are pretty classic (ie, based off that retro military ’A shirt‘ style) and very flattering, although the cloth has a slightly varied texture to it which I like but which might not be your thing.@California Dreamer @The False Prophet thanks but what I am after is that classic white T. With the sleeves a close fit on the upper arms. I bought a couple at a 7/11 in Tokyo in 2018 made from Australian cotton no less. Bonds do one but the cotton is a very poor quality and they lose their shape after a couple of washes.
Thanks - I did see these when last in Tokyo, although they’re like $100 at current exchange rates!

I thought great then saw the Elastane content, sigh.
