• 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

I like that colour, and it goes well with blue jeans. .
. .anyway, hows the leg and the scooter. .
Leg is healing, had surgery a month ago, still can't walk but I've got amazing friends and family helping me out. Thanks for asking.
The coppers stole my bike and took it to a tow lot. The lot was charging so much for me to get it out I couldn't afford it so I told my mate who owns the local vintage scooter repair shop he could have it if he wanted to pay to get it out. He did. So maybe he'll sell it back to me some day if I get the money and he hasn't used it for parts. But I think I might just wait and get a P200 or a Bella when I can afford it. I've got criminal charges coming against me for riding an unregistered vehicle. Court in December. The cops didn't even know it wasn't a moped til they started digging around in the glove box to find the license plate I foolishly left there for years. When I crashed, I begged the lady that saw me not to call the cops. I told her I was fine and that I had someone that could help me get to the hospital and pick up my bike. Some people are so full of fear and really think that the police are angels or something.

Really nice colour, mate. Wear with whatever you want - I often wear my Lee trucker jacket with Levis.
A friend of mine from Ireland was telling me that in the 70s everyone had a denim jacket and no matter what brand someone had they called it a Wrangler jacket.

Would it be blasphemy to wear this Wrangler jacket with Levis or do I have to get myself a pair of wranglers?View attachment 1278979
I've got a similar colour cord Lee trucker and wear it with Levis. Still got this mod hang up that I can only wear Levi jeans, a bit daft but we all have our own preferences.

There were a few brands made here in Massachusetts during the 60s such as Madewell and Dubbleware that used some great selvedge denim and had a really impeccable fit. I'd be happy to find a pair. They're probably priceless though. Foremost was a Sears brand that made really cool jeans too. It's a bloody shame what manufacturers have done to the rise and crotch length of jeans now. Also this skinny jeans thing seams to still be going in the mainstream. I thought it would have gone away by now..

Wow , not so good lvyskin.
The last time l had an incident on the bike , a guy came out of his house and said 'do you want me to get an ambulance' , to which l said yes and then added , 'can you call the cops too ' because it was the other guys fault.
I was carted off in the ambulance before the cops came .
Couple of days later l got out of hospital , went around to the cop shop and it turned out they had done nothing because ' we didn't know you were injured' . It turned out they were pals with the guy who hit me.
Good luck in court , l do hope it goes well for you .

Yeah , l always knew it as a Wrangler jacket even if it was a superior Levi's jacket.
For me , calling it a trucker jacket is probably something l first heard in the 90's . If you did wear a Wrangler jacket back in the day ,there was also a danger that someone would say ' do you think you are a wee hard man ?'

Ah , how our language has changed over the decades. .
