Kipper Original: The Fully Canvassed Suit

Kipper Clothiers believes in fully canvassing your suits — the benefits far outweigh the cost.

Canvassed Jackets:
Traditionally, suits were constructed with a layer of horsehair canvas underneath the wool fabric shell. This canvas holds the shape of the suit and keeps it from sagging or deforming, much like the foundation of a house keeps it upright. The canvas is cut to the jacket’s shape, then the wool is stitched to the canvas. Over time, as you wear the jacket, the canvas conforms to your body’s shape, creating an excellent fit.The canvas lining allows the suit fabric to drape naturally, allowing a clean, well put-together look.

Fused Jackets
Many suit manufacturers, as an effect of increased production, no longer use a canvas interlining in their jackets. Rather, a fusible interlining is glued to the wool shell of the suit. And while this does an adequate job of keeping a jacket’s shape, it often creates an unnatural stiffness in the jacket, making a fused jacket appear lifeless compared to a similar canvassed coat. It’s not just budget brands that construct jackets in this fashion. Many designer labels construct their suit jackets this way to save themselves money.

AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.

My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”

This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!

The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.

This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.

This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!

rly cool thing to do: train yourself to have they/them be your reflexive go-to pronoun

I feel like English teachers worldwide would cringe at how ungrammatical that idea really is. It comes off as overly PC, and confusing…

Shakespeare is Elizabethan English. Beowulf is Old English.

When people say, “I’ve never seen that side of him before” — I want to say, “You have another side too. We all do. You’re just hiding it today.”

It’s ugly to watch someone lash out, blow up, and melt down: but we are all just as capable of the same crimes and cowardice. Please don’t be too hard on others when their worst is exposed, and don’t despise someone whose worst is different than yours. We’re all a little crazy and we all need the same grace.

hey everyone!!!! I’m super pleased to announce that my new webcomic will be launching September 7th!

Quick$ilver, which has nothing to do with the preexisting x-men character, and everything to do with money and Ke$ha (I’m only half joking) focuses on the life and times of a beautiful little disaster named Luci.

I’m going to be doing things a little differently this time around and will be updating in spaced-apart chunks, roughly a scene at a time every month or two, as I complete them.

You may remember my previous, unfinished webcomic, Acanthity. This story is set in the same alternate-Vegas universe, and features many of the same characters, but it’s certainly a very different kind of story, visually and thematically. I spent several months in comic-purgatory, recycling and reshaping a lot of the old elements and ideas into something new that I’m very excited to share! I can’t wait to finally set this story loose on the world and I hope you enjoy reading it too! <3 <3

Can’t wait!

Okay guys, I’m going to get serious for a minute. If you’re not in Ireland at the moment, you may not know about the situation regarding the laws on abortion. It is completely illegal, even in cases of rape, incest, fatal foetal abnormality, and other such things. Women have died in this country because inability to have an abortion put strain on their health. A woman who wasn’t even Irish begged for an abortion because her child was about to die in the womb. The complications arising from her case resulted in her contracting septicaemia, organ failure, and tragically dying. In 1992, the X Case took place, involving a 14-year-old girl, knowns only as x, who became pregnant after being raped. Instead of offering help to the girl, who because suicidal, they prevented her from travelling out of the country for an abortion.Any Irish woman* who needs an abortion has to travel to the UK, which means if you don’t have the money, you’re out of luck. What does the Irish Government have to say about this?Well, recently the UN confronted the Government about our abortion laws, pointing out that we were breaking Human Rights laws, and that the Government treated Irish women* like vessels.Joan Burton, the Tánaiste, said that there will be no referendum on abortion in this Government’s lifetime. They’re literally saying that they don’t care enough to rectify Human Rights breaches.I am NOT a vessel, and neither are you. Make your voice heard. Come to the March for Choice on the 27th of September in Dublin. Never give up, never stay quiet.

This has only been up since last night and LADS, the NOTES. Keep spreading the word!

I am Canadian, and I’m sorry to say until I read this I didn’t know anything about what you women were going through.This is completely disgusting, I can’t even believe what you’re going through.And I wish I could come out there and march with you.But I don’t have the money so I can’t.But I’m going to keep reblogging this, and sharing it. And I hope all my followers will too.This is important people, no matter what gender you are or what country you’re in, everyone deserves their basic human rights, and we need to stand together until this becomes a reality.So please spread the word for these women.

Be lucky you’re in Ireland though, the situation is 10X worse the the “progressive” United States. Just look at places like Texas or Ohio. It’s fucking inhumane here.

Okay Leigh, I don’t think you understand what the words “outright ban” mean.
Ireland has an outright ban on abortion.  That means that under ZERO circumstances can a person who is pregnant obtain an abortion for ANY reason.
The state of Texas does NOT have an outright ban on abortion.  Yes, you have to jump through legal hoops and consent to various invasive procedures, and it is very expensive to do so, but it is technically possible.
- Number 1

same in ohio. it’s actually pretty easy to get an abortion here if you decide to- yes, you need to jump through a lot of hurdles that are degrading, frustrating, and downright insulting, but if you can suffer through it, you can get one. especially in cases of rape, incest, or risk of life to the mother and/or fetus.like yeah, shit sucks and its fucking awful, no ones denying that, but compared to ireland, we’re way luckier over here.

Don’t compare apples to oranges, especially when politics are involved.
