Bespoke tailoring is the meeting of math, art, skill, and accuracy. The accuracy of the initial measurements, art of the paper pattern, and skill in each stitch made by hand combine to make a piece of the highest level.
I think the biggest mistake that can be made when learning an art form is to rush. We want to make the double breasted peak lapel 4x6 double vented checked suit that we saw at Pitti. But the best place to start is with perfect even stitches, beautiful button holes, and the simple patterns with great fit. That is what i will try to do here.
Join me as i learn the skills to make my own wardrobe, and a couple things for friends and colleagues, the right way.
