 To the best of my knowledge there is no tailoring equivalent to the "Coherent Combinations" thread.  The tailoring thread is intended not as an introduction to the subject but as a way of getting advice about particular fits, which is quite different. I think for the most part the information in the Coherent Combinations thread is non-controversial.  I wonder if the same degree of unanimity could be achieved in a tailoring thread, given, for example, the tendency toward...
I think one of the best places to start is with the old “Coherent Combinations” thread.  Archive.org has it here:   https://web.archive.org/web/20120217213454/http://www.styleforum.net/t/287922/practical-thoughts-on-coherent-combinations-for-beginners   Cheers,   Ac
