• 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

Too right I wouldn't.

I may have seen elderly persons in every shade of taupe/beige/cream, but I have never ever seen anyone 'geriatric' in a G9! And that's flat! I have a vintage G9 in stone, and I wear it everywhere. The trick with that colour is to wear dark blue with it.

Oh, I said I wear it everywhere. There's one exception - St Andrews! I never wear it to university, because I'd look too much like a bloody golfer in it.

re the 1970 pic, what's more interesting is the American sports shirt I'm wearing - straight out of the Squire Shop!
I think it's a great Harrington-Shirt combo as the check of the shirt works with the check of the Harrington lining, and that's a Challenge !

I also find interesting that the Grenfell is in a color approaching the one of your 70s Harrington.

That's one reason I picked it. Green was my eccentricity when I was a lad, where everyone else seemed to go for blue. I had a green surfer in 1968, with a red and white stripe down each sleeve. And when Harringtons came in (again, in or around 69) I went straight for a green one.

Not an entry, but i went this morning to the Fred Perry shop (to try one of their Harringtons) wearing a…Baracuta

FP shop (1).jpg

It was a bit chilly, so knitwear and scarf.

Fred Perry sells nice Harringtons.
Amy liked them, and looked quite good...

I think these garments never fail to make everyone look dumpy.

This truly will be a challenge.
