• 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

Let’s not forget they started calling it a Harrington jacket after this guy: master thespian Ryan O’Neal, and his turn as Rodney Harrington on a crap show called Peyton Place.

I do not like this jacket. :-/

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.
Do you by chance teach at St. Andrews?

Please explain. The only Wikipedia gives me is a British radio exec who began his career in the 80s.
There was a film critic in the 60s/70s? Named John Simon. I don’t know if he wrote about tv but he did hate everything so I’d bet Ryan O’Neal wasn’t one of his favorites.
