Today we chat to our very first guest, Gary  Cotterell. He takes us on his journey of his career in Media, enduring mistakes and trails in his life and also how we came to be friends since 2012. 


We also chat about the Rorke's Drift Community, the rich history and significance of the weaving community in the KZN Midlands, South Africa and what they need to continue the work they do and how we can help by creating something functional with the carpets and bring the vibe back to life. 


Thank You to Gary who took the time out of his busy schedule to spend the morning with us and for your positivity during this crazy time.

MEASURING FOR DRESS SIZE (Women) 
  1. Measure your bust. To do this, wrap tape around your back and over the fullest part of your bust. Exhale when taking this measurement.
  2. Measure your waist. To do this, wrap tape around the smallest part of your waist, below your ribs and above your navel.
  3. Measure your hips. To do this, wrap tape around the fullest part of your hips, ensuring that tape touches your hipbone on both sides of the top of your leg, but not your buttocks.
  4. Compare measurements to relevant size chart to find your size. Tip: if your measurements fall between two sizes, it is always a good idea to go for the larger size.

Measuring for Trouser Size ( Men and Women) 
  1. Use a standard, up-stretched tape measure.
  2. Use a pair of pants that fit you well.
  3. Lay pants flat on the floor to simplify the measuring process. Pants should not be too worn and should not have any irregularities such as creases or folds, as this may affect the accuracy of your measurements.
  4. Measure the waist of your pants. To do this, smooth the pants out without stretching, and measure flat across the back waistband from one corner to the other with your measuring tape.
  5. Double the measurements obtained from measuring the waistband. This will give you the actual waist size.
  6. Next, you will need to measure the hips of your pants. To do this, measure horizontally across your pants, at the base of the zipper.
  7. Once you’ve measured this, double the number to get the entire measurement.

Measuring for Jacket Size ( Men and Women) 
  1. Measure your bust. To do this, wrap tape around your back and over the fullest part of your bust. Exhale when taking this measurement.
  2. Measure your waist. To do this, wrap tape around the smallest part of your waist, below your ribs and above your navel.
  3. Measure your hips. To do this, wrap tape around the fullest part of your hips, ensuring that tape touches your hipbone on both sides of the top of your leg, but not your buttocks.
  4. Measure your shoulders. To do this, stand with your shoulders relaxed and your back straight. Locate your shoulder points, which are points marked by your acromion bones. Position the tape straight and horizontally from one shoulder point to the other and take these measurements.
  5. Lastly, measure your sleeve length. To do this, slightly bend elbow, then measure the distance from the bone at the base of the back of the neck to the end of the shoulder and down the arm, going around the elbow and ending at the prominent bone on the wrist.
