• 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

Dang I’d love a pale powder blue. My pale pink from SS18 Lemaire is one of my most worn items.

Some thoughts on the items I received today:

- Military Jersey Shirt: material reminded me a lot of athletic apparel, top button placement is a bit odd for me when opened, fit is just slightly oversized, will keep just to see if the style works for me

- Dry Touch Crew Sweater: very dry hand, almost like a crispy rough linen, some interesting stitching details on cuff/hem, do not size down, TTS is standard, size up for somewhat slouchier fit

- Ribbed Crew Sweater: Similar to their pervious S/S ribbed knits, a little bigger sizing than the dry touch

- Cotton Linen Wide-Fit Pants: I could see how this would make a nice beater suit, sending this back but might rethink this and the jacket once they hit sales in all three colors, had a bit of a sheen to it, compared to the other black items this one almost seemed more like a dark charcoal

Overall wasnt blown away (although I do always like the fit on their sweaters), but you get what you pay for. Always a good opportunity to try new cuts/colors/styles on the cheap.

Thought the denim work jacket was best thing I tried today. Feels very leisurely and lighter, fine details. Stitching, sharp wide lapels, boxy sleeves overall just really nice, I bought the faded blue might get the dark denim too. I sized down to a medium.

Hooded coat was nice, I hated the pullover sweatshirt it felt like I had a normal sweater but worn backwards. Striped shirts were nice again. Military shirt and jacket didn’t fit that well on me, medium felt to big and small just felt off I’m sure others it’ll fit better.

@el Bert So the regular pulover hooded sweatshit has a high neckline or something? Maybe I'll drop it from my cart and add the mainline sweater.

In my fit experience, it’s a semi boat neck style which I personally find nice and different from usual, but it may not be so if you prefer a wider neck.

The UU jeans are not selvedge, correct?
No, they haven’t made one in selvedge, but all still from Kaihara. While some details are nice, this season’s jeans are just ok, I find the mainline Uniqlo jeans to be better, such as the Regular Fit Tapered if you’re looking for a good value pair.

I like boat neck style too but the construction felt wonky at least on my body. The neckline puffed forward and the body was wide than slimmer towards the ribbing.

@hayaoyamaneko Polyester suiting is actually not that bad this time, not as stretchy as last season so feels like it has a bit more structure and with a finer weave. I still prefer the 18FW wool-poly twill version, though.

@MGoCrimson I wore the Military Jersey Shirt the whole day yesterday and it's pretty nice even with this material. I find that it doesn't crease as much and held up really well at the end of the day.

Ah, shit good call bro. From the website "the collar has been made tighter around the front of the neck for a look that feels fresh and resembles vintage athletic sweats". I missed that. I got some muscle on my neck and that would drive me nuts, taking it out of my cart. Damn, the green color looked fire.

I'm not really feeling the longer ribbing at the bottom of their sweatshirts / hoodies and also couples with a tighter waist seam on them, might just sleep on those two actually. I got my mainline orange one I wear a lot, but mostly because the color is great.

Just back from the shop.
i really don't like (personal preference) the new UU collection apart the "beater suit", nice cut.
I was surprised as it was a good fit (i'm 196-98cm tall). Took the jacket in XL, the trousers in L.
Black definitely the best color. Really good for the price.
