I’m especially into this season’s Navy Back Sateen fabrics.
There are two weights – heavy weight for outerwear/pullover shirt, medium weight for regular shirt.
They are stiff – not flexible or no drape at all when new….but I’m looking at its texture after repeated wearing and washing
numeral times……as on most vintage rugged fabrics.
They are not enzyme washed – that means they are going to look great after years of use….unlike washed and destroyed fabrics of these days.
We’ve been into lighter, softer fabrics for last 10 years or so….now I start feeling like these stiff fabrics….like back in those my early vintage days.

We just finished making our first sample of Double Logger Jacket…
I’ve been thinking of making this type of Logger Jacket for long time….and I think now would be a good timing for this style.
It’s getting colder…..our E-Z CRUZ vest is getting more convenient for me to grab almost everyday.
I’ve been into STREAMLINE fonts again…
We used to use sort of…before.
