• 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

label 5 first numbers refer to the season :
01181xxx = ss18
01183xxx = ss18 spot
01182xxx=aw18
01184xxxx= aw18 spot

the rest being a combination of the article number and color
This is really very helpful, thank you so much! Another quick one whilst I have you (if I may) - some labels begin 'VS'. Do I assume these are very old items, or does VS signify something else? Cheers!

I own mud dyed pants and other natural dyed clothes and I just hand wash them with a mild natural detergent such as Eucalan. Mrs. Meyer’s detergent works as well
thanks mate, do you know if Eucalan removes grease stains too? I tried Oxi Vanish Gold stain remover to a small area and it'd change the mud color to burnt orange so it's a no go

Yes in my experience it will. You may have to hand wash it more that once or use more per wash since it’s a milder detergent, but it should do the trick.

Thinking about picking up one of the Social Sculpture western shirts new or gently used. Not super familiar with them, to be honest - should I be concerned about any indigo bleed onto t-shirts underneath?

the western SS shirts dont bleed really, I just sold 1 one wash and 1 dmgd this week dating back from Aw10 and aw11, and I would rather size them up if I had to buy them again. The B.D. SS shirt do bleed more for some reason !

Yep that’s the “Plain belt”. I remember looking at a red one a few summers ago

did it two times now hand washing and unfortunately the grease stains are still there.. chemical wash sounds very risky. should I just repeat the hand wash with Eucalan few times more and hope it'll work or is there some other options to get the stains out safely?

Yeah maybe try washing it more times if you think the stain is getting lighter. If not then you could try a stronger natural detergent such as Mrs. Meyers.

Wondering what style of boot this is. Seller is calling it Serra, but doesn't look like the Serras I have seen before. Any ideas, folks? Thanks in advance.
