• 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've never understood Gurkha pents.
I think they’re flattering m if you’ve got the physique for it. Few do. SM absolutely should not consider them for RTW. Can’t fathom a scenario in which they sell well.
I think they look really cool with a high rise, pleats, and wide waistband.

You never know until you try. They are very comfortable and visually interesting. A lot of people think they are too out there for them, but if you're worried about sticking out, don't be. The masses don't even notice.

Vaguely looks like classic old school trousers. Slimming cummerbund look, wide waistband, double pleats. I'd rather just have a wide waistband with extended tab, seems like a pain in the ass to do up.

They can also add some visual interest for summer outfits when it's realistically too hot to wear a sports coat or suit.

My big problem with Ghurka pants is the enclosure seems like a pain to do up.

They also seem to come in fabrics that do not retain their shape. I only like double pleats on fabrics that can retain the crease as it leads into the pleat. Creates a razor sharp look.

I barely have enough time to pee between classes as it is, I don't need to add more complication to my life.

I admit, it takes a little longer to do up, but it's not that bad.

I'm with you on that one. Also why I will never get button fly.

Took my sports coat to tailor because it's too tight now, and he said there is some fabric to let out of the armhole and he will increase the entire back.

Hopeful and curious to see how this turns out.
