Sewing for the Menfolk

xstpenguin's picture

What about the men?  It's so easy to caught up in making things for yourself, but what about the Husbands, Fathers, Brothers, etc, etc or maybe the reader is a man and wants ideas for himself.

There are 3 young men in the Hand Tailoring class I attend at college, all very talented and ready to be fired up with ideas from the likes of Threads.  On showing one of them my two most recent copies it suddenly struck me there was nothing there for him at all! (unless they are doing ladieswear!)

Plus fitting for men has got to bring up different issues. There are few patterns available for men commercially, all the more need to be creative!

I have also heard that menswear will continue to heavily influence ladieswear in the coming seasons.

So how about it Threads???
