The "6 Hour" Jacket

Two days before I left for Christmas I had to hurry up and make a jacket to give to my lovely wife as a Christmas present. I did all of my cutting and prepping (interfacing, etc.) on one day and sewed for 6 hours the next day to put it together and finish it. Here's the final result. I made this lovely shawl collar jacket in a gorgeous brown suiting. Not bad huh? Needless to say she loved it! I never like to go home empty handed. Whether I'm sewing for my wife or daughter I've got to bring home something custom made (smile). What about you, did you get any custom sewn gifts this Christmas season???

Paying Tribute to my Mentor Part II

There's something about the holidays that makes me sentimental and reflective. It's a wonderful time to look back and count one's blessings! You may recall in my November 11 post HERE that I spoke about what a significant impact my mentor, Orie Walls made on my life and how he really helped me become the tailor and businessman I am today. Here's a little more of my story and how it unfolded in a little tailoring shop on the streets of NY so many years ago. Here's my very candid story and what it was like when I really got my start. You know I love talking and sharing with you. Thanks for letting me do so. Enjoy:) ~Gentleman Jim
Also, don't forget my newest DVD "Ladies Tailored Pants Construction" is available for Pre-order. See the upper left side of my blog for more details--- 25%Off coupon holders---the shopping cart will be open to you beginning Wednesday. Stay tuned for further instructions!

Tailored Pants Construction DVD Update.....

Hello you all! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I want to catch you up on the status of my Pants DVD. I first and foremost want to APOLOGIZE for the delay in it's release. There was an unexpected production hiccup that shifted the schedule back a couple of weeks. If all continues to go well the DVD will be able to be shipped in the next couple of weeks.

One thing I can definitely guarantee is that this DVD will be worth the wait! My goal in producing any of my DVD's is to give you the best possible product. This "Tailored Pant Construction" DVD is no different!!! It is full of my "signature time management methods" that will cut down on construction time TREMENDOUSLY and ensure professional results. You'll be able to sew up a tailored pair of pants and be amazed at your results.

Since we're only a few weeks away from the DVD release I wanted to go ahead and jump start the Pre-Sale  which will start on Monday, December 9th. The DVD will sale for $29.95 but for those of you who received the 25% off coupon during the October Basic Alteration sale will be able to redeem your coupon. Additional details about the DVD, it's content,  purchasing, coupon redemption will be released on Monday. I'm SO excited again to bring this superb instruction to you. Have a great weekend and talk to you on Monday!!!!

PS. I've been bombarded with working on the DVD and with clients and students. My load is lessening so expect more regular blog posts. I love sharing with you and hearing from you!!!
