• 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 hadn't been out thrifting since Lassie was a puppy. Scored an Alan Paine Cashmere cardigan in my size today. Made in England, $3.20.

Had a great time meeting up with @ATLjon for Day 2 of the Great Atlanta Consignment Sale. As noted previously, lots of very nice, very expensive stuff. My takeaway is that my expectations have been wrecked (enlightened?) by the #ThriftLife.

Didn't leave empty handed though. Snagged a few pair of nice shoe trees for $7.50 ea.

I bought all the remaining Kiton shoe trees, 10/ea

I got these wishing I was in Hotlanta

Catch and release on the Zegna; too many stains and yellowing for $45

E-thrift... Reasonably sure I'm an idiot, but they'd listed the bloody thing as a "Churka Bag" with free shipping from the other side of the US.

All-leather, great shape... Two bills. What was I supposed to do? :/

(The suitcase—#51 Traveller)

Here's the problem... When am I going to use the thing?

I have my #2 Express (below) as my designated flight carry-on. I suppose I could just switch, but going anywhere without my Express feels like high treason.

I could check the #51... But this does not seem like a good time to test the kindness of strangers. (No hate to baggage handlers—their job is generally overwhelming and difficult!)

Really, it seems like a piece expressly designed for the perpetual first class traveller, from the era where those passengers could sling two carry-ons on any flight without issue.

Goddamn it's cool though.

EDIT: SOLUTION! Can fit Express INSIDE the larger suitcase :rotflmao:

Combined with the #85 Barrister, things look very nice indeed
