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

For real. Isn't RRL made in China?The assertion that factories in China or abroad in general have less quality control than American or Italian factories is more myth than fact. Some factories in China are truly “premier”, and comparable to some of the more reputable factories making men’s clothing. You get what you pay for.
it’s funny you say that. I asked the original question precisely because I don’t see much (any?) green in the pics on the S&M site.Yeah, it's hard to see the green, unless it's in real life, under certain light. That, or using a good camera with proper lighting, as seen on S&M's site.
well I’m looking at the trousers. But, yes, they look predominantly grey to me. Which is great if true. I wouldn’t buy them if they were too green.Really? It looks quite green to me, like that of a mint leaf (hence the name). Could be a touch of color blindness?
Speak for yourself.This thread really tends to attract some insane takes. A guy gets a faulty pair of trousers on an MTO program pilot run and we jump to worker mistreatment? Is there even an established correlation between labor conditions and QC?
And yes there is certainly correlation between a garment’s price and the conditions under which it was made. But let’s be careful not to overstate that. This bullshit happens all the time with Italian luxury goods. Just today: http://well-spent.com/armani-saint-laurent-fendi-linked-italian-sweatshop/
And what’s with demanding to know how a company keeps its prices so low? Do you make the same demands of SuitSupply?
Doubt it even matters. Even if Rick admitted tomorrow to working child slaves 18 hours a day to add belt loops to your balmacaans, you cheap skates would still splash out the minute that 20% Black Friday coupon drops.
