Whatever happened to Polar Bear's Sewing Patterns?

Threaded View
I've not been able to get onto the website listed in many plus size
listings. I am looking for men's plus size sewing and knitting
patterns. Does any one know if Polar Bear's Sewing Patterns still
exists?
Cheers

Hi;

    It would appear that Polarbear's patterns are no longer on the
net.. All of the website's pages seem to come up as 404 or 403
non-existant or "forbidden".  
I hope that nothing has happened to Polarbear, he was a nice person.

Good luck finding large men's patterns... It is a real problem... You
can try to find a copy of Simplicity 9477 Large Men's l/s shirt,s/s
shirt, pants, & walking shorts (up to size 6x) (This pattern is
discontinued, which is a real shame.)


Here are a couple of Hawaiian "Luau" shirt patterns in sizes up to 4x,
which work up nicely: (numbers 210 & 220)

210 can also be used to make s/s "dress" shirts using "view b" ...
(These patterns are presently available)

Simplicity 4585 is a presently available men's zoot suit pattern in
sizes up to 52 (2x).

Simplicity 4758 is a presently available men's boxer shorts pattern in
sizes up to 5x.

Simplicity 4975 is a presently available  l/s shirt, vest, and
"western" shirt in sizes up to 5x.

Presently available, Simplicity 9469 is similar to the discontinued
9477, except it is available in sizes to 52 (2x) only.

McCalls has a **few**  large mens patterns up to size 3x in the
unisex/men/uniforms section of their present catalogue.

( M4529, M4530, M4399, M2477, M8524 are all available up to 3x)

Here are 3 sweater patterns in sizes to mens 5x to knit:

(the red design is available to mens 6x)..

hope this helps...

If it's any consolation, he didn't have *that* many patterns.  A brief
pattern, a dress shirt pattern, a Speedo-type swimsuit pattern, some
sweatpants, I think, and a casual shirt, and I think that was it.

You can always put in his URL at www.archive.org and see if there are
any pages archived from his site that might give you contact information.
