New Prices

  Thank you!  I value your business and really appreciate the risk you took on me.   You’ve been a key factor for the growth and success of Foxwear.  

    Polartec fabric is 10% more costly than before.   By me continuing to buy the latest styles of their fabric means you will have more choices.  The needed industrial sewing machine I have now helps with quality.

How-To Measure Yourself for Garment Sizing

 

 

 

 

Here at Foxwear we offer custom sizing on every item, but if you haven’t been fitted for clothing before you may not have your measurements handy. Remember, sports clothing and casual clothing are fit differently. Note this when taking measurements for pants vs tights etc. Some measurements will be easier to take with a helper. If you have any questions about measurements, please send us an email or give us a call!

Our diversity business in Idaho

10 years ago Patricia Ama and I shared Royal African Culture with Foxwear. What better way to express our love of diversity? Following are pictures of this adventure.

A brief history of Ama’s Royal African Culture work in Salmon.

A happy student

Upon getting USA citizenship 10 years ago, teaching W African cooking was great fun.

Idaho teachers heard Ama was living in our community and so she was invited to give these youngsters a glimpse of the world they couldn’t even imagine.

Next came using our industrial sewing machines for African styles using African fabric.

Design created at the shop

A few customers called after discovering us on the Internet.

We introduced Ama’s creations to people visiting fairs in Salmon Idaho and Western Montana. People needing diversity were overjoyed.

Here are some creations

We’ve been interested in these fabrics for a long time.
