• 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

It's been done before. If you're among friends and feel comfy, don't rule it out.

How does everyone feel about tartan trousers with an otherwise standard black tie rig? I’m thinking to go red or blackwatch trousers for a Christmas event.
Nowadays (yes, exceptions exist, of course) the tartan pants will likely receive more compliments than the "correct" trousers.

First outing for new Sean O’ Flynn dress shirt last night. How do people stop the front of the shirt riding up?

I had a BBGF pleated shirt that did that as well. Very annoying. Switched it out for a slimmer-fitting Hickey Freeman. It still rides up a bit. Must be the lack of a belt?

I sent Sean the photo. He said I should wash the shirt as that will hello the front shirt flat. If it’s still a problem he’ll fit a tab to attach to my trouser waistband.

Quick question - Is it acceptable to wear a normal French cuff white dress shirt with mother of pearl buttons showing with a tuxedo?

I understand traditionally the shirts have stud or covered buttons, however I have seen many people wear normal mother of pearl buttons, including Prince William, David Beckham etc.

Thanks!

You can if you want to. Personally, I think it's regrettable. Assuming you've got your own tuxedo, why wouldn't you buy a decent shirt to go with it?
