It's so funny that when there's a new pattern for men -- any pattern at all -- that it's a cause for celebration.

I got an email from Vogue announcing their new fall collection, and I clicked into it figuring there wouldn't be anything of interest to me.

But it looks like they have a new men's pattern. 8940 has a men's jacket in two lengths. The shorter version (view A) looks like a peacoat, the longer version (view B) looks like a car coat or overcoat.

There's also a nice pair of slim-fit, below-waist pants that are very fashion-forward. The pants use a yoke for shaping in the back, and have flap pockets.

What's more, the pattern looks like it's on sale for $3.99 for a limited time.

I noticed the men's pattern immediately too.

The bright side of the situation is that you aren't at risk of accumulating more patterns than you have time to sew them.

Surprise! I went to purchase the pattern just now, and the price went up to $18. Serves me right for not immediately jumping on the offer.

Don't worry -- have a beverage of your choice and in no time at all (I'd bet within the next 10 days), Vogue/BMV will have another sale. :)

EDIT: Like jacquiJB said.

... and Joanns has them on sale all the time (and probably other places as well)

If you have a Hancock's in your area, they will be on sale next week (Aug 1-4) for $3.99. We can only hope the new line is in the stores by then

I'm curious to know the level of detail in the instructions - wonder if they'll have some good tailoring directions? Great pattern!
