• 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

30 oz is too heavy for a sportcoat. I have a 19oz that's too heavy, really.

It'll be a SC / OC hybrid - one that I intend to simply wear above my shirt when the temperature falls below freezing (in lieu of a suit jacket + 18-22oz. overcoat.) Possibly something like this, without the slanted pockets on the lower chest but with a throat latch:

I have some of his regular 20oz. Harris and its great stuff.

I also like the idea of a sportcoat/overcoat hybrid. How do you intend to change the pocket configuration?
