• 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

Our totebags finish sewing on Monday and go into dye promptly on Tuesday. We've made a few very important running changes to the project:

1) You can now order the tote in Undyed Natural Sashiko. It's a gorgeous off-white tone and you can see the colored selvedge detail inside.

2) A hanging interior pocket, folded bottom corners, and a hidden top snap closure will be added to all of the bags

3) The woven Epaulet logo has been moved inside

About 40 bags remain! Place your order now to get your choice of color, save $40 off the retail, and ensure that you receive one of the coolest heavyweight bags ever made! Please note that any stock items will only be offered in Natural, Azure, and Shadow Grey. The other colors are strictly available via this preorder.

Clearance on Nuovo Hop
Love when people can sew a straight seam on the edge, bags are looking good. About to do some new bandanas with a new factory in dtla let's see what they can do.
yeah it’s amazing how much handwork goes into this piece... and really how skilled these operators are

Heads up, we have a huge update to the custom Doyle section going live today. I’ll post as soon as it’s up. This will be our last push for delivery in 2019.

There's some great one-off stuff at $295 which I bought at discount. And some seriously baller things like 80 Wool / 20 Cash and pure Camel from Piacenza.

Will it be possible to pay for an upgrade to get Sinclairs made up?

Has anyone shortened their Doyle sleeves significantly, like more than an inch, or enough to eliminate the tiny little circular gap that appears when you button the cuffs, which often seem significantly tighter than the rest of the sleeve taper? Just wondering, and curious to see what it looks like if you have photos.

We can make two more of these double faced Marling & Evans Camel Check jackets.

Seriously guys, if you like the Doyle shape then treat yourself.. you won't regret it! This fabric is freaking amazing...

Just to confirm, the "Vicuña heavyweight wool-cashmere" is the *color* Vicuna, right? I assume so, but didn't want to sleep on it if not :)

Love the custom options. The Doyle is my favorite jacket by far. The with the custom order process, the sleeve length won't be an issue any more. Thanks guys!

Oh yes, it’s merely a vicuña color, haha
Mike, for the mink brown wool/cashmere option, is that the same fabric you've done walts made with in the past? And is that fabric the same as the vicuna just a different color?
