Article in Seattle Times (paywall) about this seems they cannot find experienced sewers in the Seattle anymore. Sad

Tactical Tailor in Lakewood seems to be able to retain a staff of sewers and keep people on the payroll.

Last time I made an inquiry about the company I was told the owner had just purchased a new Ferrari.

Maybe "OR" should consider paying their help a decent wage.

Ive had a pair of their  Versa-liner gloves for years.   Pair of fleece liners, and Pertex covers that can be worn separately or together.  4 ounces.  Perfect warmth or rain gloves for 3 season hiking.

That sounds great but in 2010 they were subcontracting to a "suburban sweatshop."

Rainy Pass Repair did a great job putting a new zipper into an Arc'teryx jacket of mine.  After about a decade the one it came with failed.
