• 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

Okay so the product arrived and I just used it on my distressed calf L01. The right picture is the after picture.
Was rubbing it in with a sponge and then polished with a microfiber towel.
On the picture the difference is not as noticable as in person but it definitely got darker and shinier, only bad thing so far the stuff smells nice but the jacket currently doesn't smell like leather, not sure if it will fade away.

Gave it a good shine. The smell will probably fade. Next time, try some of those leather oils I mentioned earlier. They will help the leather from drying out. The problem with synthetic leather conditioners is they do moisturize but over time could also de-glaze/dry out the leather when it eventually wears off. Just my $0.02.

Where did you pick them up?? I have recently been eyeballing dior denim because I need a solid raw black pair. It seems all of my black jeans are pretty faded lol. How is the sizing?

Anyone have any suggestions on great solid raw black skinny fit jeans that are not SLP/Dior?

multi zip is dope. Still hoping to get one in a 52. For black jeans, favorites are cast 2 obsidians or onyx. Amiri stacks are good 2

picked em up from rak, sizing is all over the place. My aw05 27's are about 3cm bigger in the waist than the ss07 27's. ss07's also weigh more strangely enough.

Are they doing Mens show soon?
Hoping for some nice knitware for FW2020. I loved one or two from last year but quite expensive!

I liked a lot of pieces I saw. There was a brown leather trench/overcoat that i would love to wear if i found one in my size.

He did use quite a bit of patent leather or some material that looks like that which is interesting.

I hate the video player they use on the website. so I was mostly going off the vogue photo gallery. I'm gonna take another look at it later tonight, but I thought the overall look of the show was incredible. Granted, most of the looks are going to be impossible for most women, but putting that aside, I really dug the colors and silhouettes.

Yeah, I loved that brown trench coat. According to vogue, the pants are latex. Not sure how practical that is, but looked great on those women.

I'm wondering about menswear too: anyone know about this??
