• 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

copped the minute I saw the newsletter hit my inbox. Can I modifiy the sleeve and inseam length like other doyle/rivet projects? Many thanks Eva!!!
@veedubhkg thank you so much! Unfortunately we can't do that for this go around, everything is scattered with the factory, so we're trying to keep it all as simple and uncomplicated as we can for them. So it all has to be made to the usual specs. But the sleeves are easily tailored if you need to make them shorter. And the Rivets look pretty rad rolled up.

While I don't think I have enough swagger to carry the whole natural sashiko getup, but I look forward to pair it with my other lighweight Doyle and the trusty Epaulet snuff suede trainers...
I think you got the juice to pull it off!

Should I size up then in The Sinclair to 42. Worried about sleeves as usual but my Indigo sashiko Doyle does fit bigger.
No I’d still say 40... I adjusted this pattern to make it longer in the sleeve and body, you’ll be good

Eva,

The Sashiko EZ pants of yore are my required uniform of the Covid 19 quarantine. I have 3 pairs (raisin, indigo, sienna)... that said, would I take the same size in the natural rivet?

@GGMac so great.. this is going to be a solid addition to the collection! Yes, I'd say to take the same size. Our overall fit is IMO much improved from the last run, but the waist will be about the same. We also have a felled seam in the back to prevent any rear-end blowouts. Ain't nobody got time for those!

That Doyle is going to look great beat up, stained and smeared. I don't think it works with my current repertoire but I can see it in my mind's eye
Oh man totally.. kind of that worn in 1970's modern art painter steez...

Thanks guys... @macjedi absolutely killed it! I'll let him post his favorites, but these are the shots from the newsletter below.

It's worth nothing that the samples are a size 40 jacket and size 34 pant. It's the only ones that we have. They're really oversized on him, but you can barely tell in the pics... he's that good at styling.

All those pieces are great, but those pants are my favorite piece.
Thanks dude, they're definitely the best selling of the group. They're just as easy to wear as any stone or light-colored chino. Texture is absolutely killer.
