• 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

@madeinbogota what is double pick stitching?
When there's two lines of pick stitching instead of one. If you look at the lapels on that jacket, you'll see there's actually two rows. Just a nice detail that only nerds like us would care about.

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.


.... I'm annoyed. But at least all that sweet stuff didn't go to some rando.

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 lol

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.
2-14 - 1.jpeg
2-14 - 2.jpeg

Ties etc: front row Liberty x 2, Clotherie, pleated Pancaldi for D. Fine, vtg wool Talbotts, Polo, Missoni, Hardy Amies, Altea, Armani. Behind, NWT 'Gamo suspenders, NWT Polo, Charvet, RLPL x 2, Burberry, Borrelli and Kiton 7-folds, Todd Snyder linen.

CH suspenders, Talbott c'bund, and a very rare one from NM that I'll post about later. At the top, a Canada Goose cashmere cable-knit beanie at the nearby thrift store for $3 on half-price day. Love when that happens.
2-14 - 6.jpeg
2-14 - 7.jpeg

PRL scarf, monstrously fugly Samuel L Jackson Kangol golf hat, weird All Saints asymmetric vest and handmade colorful vest from Michael Kensinger of SanFran.
2-14 - 8.jpeg

Pantalones: 4 x PRPS (love their jeans and keep hoping I'll find some in my size one day), plus a pair of Clothing Arts "Cubed" pickpocket proof pants. On the right, Isaia Aquachino, Zegna sport, RRL, Biryani x 2, and NWT Camoshita drawstring.
2-14 - 9.jpeg

Shirts: RLPL, Polo with epaulets, Ben Silver, Gustin, Ledbury, Sid, Tintoria Mattei. Right: Todd Snyder, Zegna x 2, P&S, Borrelli, Dries, Hackett.
2-14 - 10.jpeg

Scotch x 2, Unfuckit, Sid, Viyella. Right: Burb, Talbott, Lee Valley Ireland, Paul Stuart, and a TF for me. Finally!
2-14 - 11.jpeg


Sweaters: Reigning Champ, Malo x 2, Polo blend with rabbit fur, Drakes that needs a good fabric shave, Unfuckit henley, Zegna sport, D2, Cuci.
