Title: Excess fabric, what to do
Post by: BrianB on October 20, 2020, 01:37:16 AM
I had some shirts made and got some of the material back as excess and I feel like I should use it for something. I thought about getting pocket squares made, but that seems a little obvious? Not sure how I feel about a shirt with matching pocket square. Any ideas? I thought about masks, but not sure how current that will be going into next year. Any ideas?

Shirts with matching hankies are a no-no for me, but I think face masks are going to stay with us for a long while, sadly

If you have enough cloth I'd go with a matching tie.  Local tailor already doing matching masks. Not for me  ;)

I thought about masks, but unsure as in my location and situation, not sure how practical thought would be (and since when I do go out it's to bars and then I don't wear a mask as I am too busy swilling liquor), the pocket square as mentioned was a non-starter, but maybe a handkerchief that I could keep inside my coat? I like the tie idea, but not enough material (even though the shirt-maker from Italian Job had a good look in my opinion). I suppose I could store it away in the even of the collar or cuffs starting to fray.

By the time they start to fray Brian, you'll probably be ready to "donate" the shirt or toss it...

Well , that is a matter of opinion.  When it comes to my personal  health l like to delve in and do my research thoroughly,  and as far as l can find there is NO scientific evidence to back up a cloth mask saving you from anything apart from some dust maybe . Personally,  l don't believe in conspiracy theories nor do l believe everything  lame stream media cares to say as gospel.  This is the longest , l have ever known anything from China to last. The truth is out there. .

I totally agree, I don't see what the big problem is with them anyway tbh, if they work then great if the effect is minimal its hardly a big inconvenience.

The problem is they are likely to do more harm than good , breathing in your own CO2 to name but one negative effect , oh aye , and being totally ineffective against a virus .

There hasn't been enough testing to say either way from what I've seen when it comes to protecting the wearer, but there has been tests to show that they do limit the spread of droplets from someone that has it and if those findings are acurate then thats enough for me to make them worthwhile.

Re the CO2: the face coverings people should be wearing aren't restictive enough to cause someone to inhale enough CO2 to make it harmful, or any real increase at all, as they are fairly lose fitting and have the odd gap here and there as well as letting oxygen pass through them pretty freely. N95s could limit someones oxygen intake over a prelonged period of time but they aren't what people should be wearing anyway.


But all that aside this isn't really the place either of us should be discussing this really.

I get your debate suggestion is a bit tongue-in-cheek, Coop, but hey, it's interesting anyway: always untucked for me, I don't feel comfortable wearing a tucked polo, more so as 95% I own are knits, as opposed to pique cotton (but even those, for instance classic FP shirts, if they're the right length, look better untucked, IMO)
