Special Finishing Details

SOFT COUTURIER HEM

  • Soft Couturier Hem To give a soft look to a hemline, it is usually necessary to put a bias strip in the hem. Depending on the fabric, underlining, interfacing, organza, or lamb's wool may be used.
  • Cut bias strip long enough to reach around the hem. The width of the strips depends on the hem depth. The strip should be wide enough to go from about 3/4 inch on the hem to 1/2 inch to 1 inch below the top edge of the hem.
  • Blind stitch a short distance away from the hem fold on the hem-side to hold the bias strip in place at the fold.
  • Blind stitch the top edge of the strip to the underlining of the garment, being careful not to catch the outer fabric in the stitching.
  • Hem the garment, stitching the hem to the underlining.

 


MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.

KATHMANDU ARCHON 65L BACKPACK v4
If you're new to multi-day hiking, or enjoy tackling the occasional Great Walk, the 65L Archon is the pack for you: sturdy and reliable, made from tough Cordura® fabric, it has everything you need (bottle pockets, pole and bed-roll attachments) and nothing you don't. The easily adjustable RS2 harness has a small to XL range built in to the harness design. The padded and stiffened hip-belt and shaped alloy frame-stays transfer the load where it needs to be, while the padded EVA shoulder straps, adjustable sternum straps and padded back panel makes the trek over the Tongariro Crossing more comfortable.
