• 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

No, but I’ll be in the right bit of London to check out their factory sale right when it opens on Wednesday.

I’ve been to the new Savile Row location. Felt a bit off to me. Lighting was bad and lots of products were displayed at awkward heights on poorly lit shelves. Shelving also felt temporary.

There’s a huge amount of product on display though — the shop seems at least double the size. Ties and tailoring take up a section at the back in the shape of the apse/sanctuary of a church. Lots of nice conservative and wearable ties actually and the pockets squares remain impeccable.

Front 3/4 of the store is filled largely with the funky new Maoist-peasant-meets-‘80s-Bronx-oversized-prep-meets-Joker stuff that was a hard pass for me.

There is some classic stuff there if you dig it out but the pricing is insane — £200+ for the same Shetland that is £50-100 anywhere else. £300 for the made-in-India cashmere scarves. Denim shirt for £225 and most casual shirts at £200. Wax jacket for £900.

Pricing seems quite out of hand for what is being offered.

when you quoted 'made in india' cashmere scarves- is that a shot aimed at the scarves being made in India and it shouldnt cost this much?

I bought one of the Made in India scarves last season and they are exceptional. Better purchased on sale as the retail price is high but they are quite nice.

Any chance if you could snap some quick cell phone photos while there? Would be interesting to see the collection of Drake's FS!

Anyone own the Crosby chukkas? Curious to hear sizing experience and advice.

Thanks!

Yup, they were. Selection very much like what they normally have at the factory store, only lots more of it, particularly in the ties section. Prices largely unchanged as well (normally, they have a buy 4-pay 3 deal going on). What was really good though was the large offering of Oxford and denim shirts. Stocked up on a few of those, it's always good to get a few foundation pieces.
