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

The selvedge bandanas are the very best (great design and soft. But, not all of their bandanas are selvedge and the ones that aren't can be rather stiff), almost any of their Western shirts with snaps, their compressed wool scarves are excellent and super comfortable, the linen bandana print Aloha shirts.
Well I tried sourcing them from bandanna almanac and he said they may be restocking them this fall@KamoteJoe If these were a size 2 they would be off the market
@Komuga I'd say these would fit a US 10, maybe a 10.5. Kapital sizing says this fits a Jp 26.5 (so around a US 8.5) but there's no way IMO even with thick socks. I wear a size 9 in most footwear and sneakers, and I need a set of thick insoles on these and thick socks for it to fit well. Also I have a low instep which probably makes it worse. Definitely a roomy boot
Exciting to hear that they're re-releasing. I wonder if they'll be the same; I noticed the black smiley side zips that got re-released looked a bit different from the original but that might be just me.Well I tried sourcing them from bandanna almanac and he said they may be restocking them this fall
I'm wondering if they would've stretched a bit after some wear? Depends how you like your footwear to fit I guess. I didn't even know Hender's go up to a size 7I tried on a size 4 and my toe just almost hit the end, it wasn't long enough really. I wear a 11D in Barrie, 7 in Hender Scheme, 12 in Nikes and Adidas. I had a higher instep, but somewhere in-between a true 11.5D and 11D.
I wish I could make it work though, I almost bought it. It was there when I went on a day trip to osaka a couple months back. Only black tho
I'm a junky for Hender stuff, in Japan 7 is impossible to get, all in the foreign market. Considering the type of welt (storm welt) the kapital hikers had, I doubt it would stretch.Exciting to hear that they're re-releasing.

I would not do a 4 for US10. I wear a 12 in sneakers and the shoes still had a tiny bit of space. Like enough where it may be too little, maybe enough but without walking around it was hard to tell.I want those hikers bad. Really hoping they re-release it in brown this fall, if what @BandannAlmanac says is true. Is it true?
I messaged you on Grailed @Hellanormcore but I'm worried I need a 4 for a US10. It's really really tempting to try, though...
There's a pair on YJPN in size 1 if anyone is smaller.
