Sounds like someone needs to self-isolate...
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 bet the shirt and the pants and the jacket were all the same fabric then
The shirt works much better with a thin layer underneath so I'll keep messing with it. Still never run into such an odd effect when it's against my skin!
Pattern is awesome, I missed this in product shots but circles are all slightly irregular as if hand painted. Construction is totally solid and I'd have no idea production changed if I hadn't been told.

I have these in the 'begula' colour (brown?) And they look an awful lot like those pictured on ssense - I wonder if they truly are black?Long sleeve stretch cotton and nylon-blend twill blazer in brown. Fading throughout. Notched lapel collar. Two-button closure at front. Welt pockets at chest and waist. Welt pocket at interior. Partially lined. Supplier color: Belugawww.ssense.com
Tapered stretch cotton and nylon-blend twill lounge pants in black. Mid-rise. Fading throughout. Four-pocket styling. Drawstring at elasticized waistband. Cropped leg. Supplier color: Blackwww.ssense.com
these should be the same fabric right? It looks the same on my screen but one is labeled brown and other black.
Was this the one on YJP?View attachment 1359790
Last purchase for a while, green FW08 Himalaya jacket. Guess this is a sample because I've never seen the green colorway anywhere, didn't even know it existed in green. Had this is black, sold because I'm generally avoiding that color, and the quality was incredibly high.
This was back right before the first lulu collab came out. A few weeks later I saw the new season on their siteAha, not good. When was that?
Wearing Geller around the house in isolation Hope you guys are all good.
I feel like this thread is long overdue for a come back, and very relevent thematically given what's going on in the world. Take some time to inventory and appreciate what you have, don't live for the next big purchase.
Here are some of the oldest things in my wardrobe that I've gotten the most use from. Doing this made me realize just how much they'd fallen into my day to day background and how deserving they were of some conscious appreciation.

If you've seen one of my fits, odds are this was in the mix. The PJ shirt is oh so versatile, it's gone from being paired with terry house robes to a suit, I've worn it to bed and on stage. Silky 100% tencel, another travel staple, mended at the tailors four or five times over the years. This is a sample peice differing from production in that it has chest pockets, so far as I know I have the only one. I get a kick out of knowing I'll never run into someone wearing exactly the same thing.

@kiya, it's great having a place that not only fixes your favorite garments, but takes the time to make choices that means they come out looking like the main character's garment in a feature film. That's the closest comparison I can think of, the patch Self Edge put on my Geller flight pants makes them look straight out of a Sci Fi blockbuster in the best sort of way.
◈Curious to hear about the garments of the past couple years that other posters would never part with! I wanna see patches, sunfaded fabric, and one of kind garments, stuff I can't just go out and buy.
If any body else is looking at getting this jacket, round up on sizing, don't let the measurements fool you. If you're gonna base it on anything, let it be length.
