Aside from making the rounds of shows for Market Week and spending bucket-loads of money for next fall/winter, I had one additional mission: pick up some soft, supple leather for jacket-making. Just a little, since I was still in experimental-mode. 'Bought these at Paron Fabrics on 39th. 'Took 'em home, sewed 'em up. A change of fabric is a good way to stay interested in making things for me...this leather was like sculpting-add a panel, leave a natural edge, build a piece. The last photo: cute old gent sighting during Eataly wine-break.
