Dope Men Sew!

Y'all, the NY Times has learned that dope men sew!  This article was published a few days ago, and it highlights some of our fellow sewists (sewist fellows?!) who are doing things their own way and fighting the stereotypes that sewing is just for women!

Check out the article, it's a great read, and you might come away with more sewists to follow on IG!  The hashtag #dopemensew is a great resource for finding more of our tribe!

Right now we have some amazing fabric that's just as great for men as it is for women and non-binary people.  Our Sueded Petrol Woven Deadstock is DOPE.  Kat is planning on making a structured shirt for Brian, using either the Leisl + Co. All Day Shirt, View B, or maybe a shirt-jacket like the Ilford or even something with strong 1970s vibes like this little beauty, View 1:
