When it comes down to it, it can all be done by hand. So, adding a machine is just an extra workhorse.
Even the bow ties we sell, as much as I would love to tell you that they could not be made by anyone else, they can. A sewing machine, the right tools, the right silks, the right linings, the right metal clips - if you can source it all and you know how to make a pattern, it can all be yours. I do not advocate everyone giving up their weekends to sew their own clothes, but it is food for thought. Especially for Australian men, if you can't find what you want in a store (and is often the case Down Under), consider getting a sewing machine and making it yourself. You will get a great sense of enjoyment out of the process and you will create something uniquely yours.
Enjoy your weekend.
