SKINZ make underwear for men March 8, 2014
OK. I admit it. Making underwear was my idea. I like the support and feel on lycra shorts under cargo shorts and so I had a few pairs of our original lycra shorts (SH5) made in cotton/lycra. They felt great. Eventually, one of our designers (Angelique) developed a pattern for a seamless front, mens lycra short. We began calling it the (NFS). NO FRONT CENTER SEAM. Finally, comfortable bike length underwear for men.  The most comfortable...

Sewing a Swimsuit February 28, 2014
About

1

Ever wonder what swimsuits are so much more $ than underwear ?  The cost is in the quality and fabrication. Swimsuits have to stand up to saltwater, sunshine, Chlorine and suntan oils, all of which work to destroy the swimsuit. Swimsuits are small and the fabric is slippery, which makes sewing them a challenge. Each swimsuit requires at least (3) different machines : the serger, the straight stitch and the zig-zag. Some require a 4th machine,...

How many times have you liked a swimsuit but didn’t love everything about it?  You might have loved the top but not the bottoms?  Or loved the bottoms but felt the top wouldn’t be flattering on you?  And isn’t it the worst if the print or color of a suit came in just that ONE style?

She has moved from Florida and now lives in LA. But on occasion she returns here to see her family.   On these visits I can always find items that need her special look. So I call her in. Who can blame me ? One of the...

It used to be easy to find new fabrics for the upcoming seasons. The Jacob Javits Center in NYC hosted many fabric shows. Eventually the show moved to Miami in hopes of attracting South American manufacturers. Then the show was eventually cancelled as well. Now, the only fabric show left is a regional show in LA. I have booked my flights and will attend this years show. It’s always good to feel the samples and eyeball...

Hi Skinz team. Just want to say that I received my latest order from you guys last week (invoice # 172364) and as usual, the quality of your products just keeps blowing me away. Not only do you have the biggest range of cuts available, you also have an equally massive range of super sexy fabrics to back it up. For my latest order, alongside a pair of Sunseeker Rios in wet look purple, I thought...
