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

THE SIGN WASN'T THERE YESTERDAY! Glad that Borrelli fits you better than it fit me. It's suuuper nice, and I tried to do some tailoring calculations in my head as I tried it on, but $100 was, in the end, too steep. For $50 though? All day long.First stop of the day paying dividends. @ATLjon pretty sure stumbled on the $50 kitty cat you left behind but you might have missed this sign..

honestly I didn’t see it either. Walked up to the register with the borrelli on (to show how well it fit) and did my best puppy face to get a pity discount but the lady pointed me to the sign lolTHE SIGN WASN'T THERE YESTERDAY!

.... I'm annoyed. But at least all that sweet stuff didn't go to some rando.
You should see the suits I got.Thread regs know that twice a year I go pillage the local consignment chain during their "70% off lowest marked price" sale. This brings their pre-curated inventory down to thrift prices (or often below). I usually bring home a couple hundred items, but got a shock this time when I arrived at the first store only to be told that "someone just came in and bought all the suits". Dammit, I thought, I'm going to have to chase someone around the stores, so I cut out and headed for the second store, only to breathe a sigh of relief when it was bursting with flippable inventory (including that plaid Attolini), and even some stuff for me . . . I'll have to do this in two parts, 'cause I have to go to work in 10 min, but here's the first part . . .
Shoes: kinda light this time, but clockwise from top left is Testoni, AE Walden, Boss, Magnanni, Mark Nason, Church's burgundy suede chukkas, Stetson (rare) and Weejuns.
